Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all it must taste rare!

W aromacie dominuje sos sojowy i lekka czekolada. Ale w smaku pięknie ułożone. Fajne ciało, oleiste, wafle oblane gorzką czekoladą zakończone nutami kawowymi. Gdyby nie ten sos sojowy to piwo byłoby majstersztykiem.

Wodanson (6) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016 does not count
Pours thick and black, with a small brown head. Aroma is of roasted malts with with notes of leather, cedar, and possibly some rose hips or something else slightly floral. The flavour is very roasty bitter chocolate, and has an earthy or woody flavour that turns to coffee and finishes very balanced. It costs the mouth very nicely and lingers for a few minutes leaving dark fruit, caramel and notes of coffee behind. Damn good beer, Skl to Jeppe as usual.

rubyroo (145) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Aroma of chocolate, wood, coffee, leather, medicine, earth. Appearance is black with a chocolate brown head that thins quickly. Small spots of lace. Taste is cocoa nibs, cough syrup, earth, tree bark, dried flowers, minerals, leather, plum and brown sugar. Palate is thick and creamy with a lingering roasty flavour. Soft carb. Overall- Delicious and complex, far from one note. More and more flavours appear upon contemplation and as it warms.

Pitch black pour. The nose has roasted malt, dark chocolate brownie, some molasses and dark roasted espresso beans. The taste is sweet initially followed by dark roast. Light sweetness followed by roasted notes and substantial bitterness. Lingering licorice aftertaste. I like em sweeter..

KW92 (1310) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 14, 2016
Kran w pubie "BrewDog"
AROMAT: Intensywny. Ciasto czekoladowe, kawa, subtelna paloność. W tle sos sojowy.
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana bardzo niska, symboliczna.
SMAK: Aksamitne, słodowe (kawa, czekolada). Geste/oleiste. Alkohol jak na ta moc bardzo dobrze ukryty, nie czuć go prawie w ogle.
OGLNIE: Bardzo dobry RIS. Niestety nie było mi dane pić świeżej wersji, wiec siła rzeczy ocena musi być niższa.

16/20 big coffee taste but the high percentage means its not as smooth as some imperial stouts, slight alcohol burn. A bit one dimensional but still very good
