COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - JUN 4, 2017
12%ABV. Imperial stout. Poured out black. 40SRM. Nose is sweet funky and fruity with raisins, dates and honeyed plums in the nose. Nose has brown sugar, molasses and hint of gula melaka which is a thick rich coconut palm sugar. Mouthfeel is syrupy and strong black coffee. Palate has honey, treacle, toffee with the toffee being the more lingering flavor because I detect a thick creamy flavor near the front end of this palate. Strong black coffee, highly carmelized Vietnamese robusta comes to mind. Aggressive alcoholic palate with a bite on the front and then warming on the back of the throat. There is a thick funk of Chinese medical rubbing ointment or liniment. Smoky, steamy, burnt log aroma-flavor with an endearingly wholesome woody finish. Overall a boozy, smoky, dark chocolate, black coffee taste ride. Goes on Favorites List!

Dark and beautiful, just like Jesus really was. The malts were roasted to the perfect amount. One of the best stouts available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vom Fass im Stone Brewing Berlin 2017-03 getrunken. Himmlischer, dicker, cremiger Traum aus dunkles Schokolade und Cappuccino. Ein Hauch von dunkler Frucht kommt kurz auf. Ja hier komme ich ins Jubeln.

Can from Harry’s Hofbrau. Pours jet black with deep brown head that is full at first but does recede rather quickly. Nose is chocolate, alcohol and licorice. Molassas. Flavor is fudge, fudge, and fudge. Thick as can be. Moderate amounts of tar pit. Burnt chocolate.

Anxious at the rater two rates below, such beers don’t collect dust and get discounted in Poland... Bottle. Black as hell. Nice head. Nose of coffee, artificial aromas, no trust these flavors come from the main three indigents (have studied the label), chocolate. Mouth is smooth, delicate, nice roast bitterness. Great! At swallowing, a vulgar booziness pops up.

Cybuch (391) - Muszyna, POLAND - JUN 2, 2017
W aromacie jakis rozpuszczalnik, wpadajacy w winogrona, nie ma czekolady, strasznie slaby. Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta, piany brak. W smaku jest lepiej, czekolada jest dosyc geste, ale troszke brakuje ciala. Jest alkohol na finiszu. Slaby ris, spore rozczarowanie.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2017 Ab InBev? I caught on that I was a sap for writing free reviews on Amazon long ago. And when IMDB got absorbed... there went my reviews into the corporate pockets. So, I pull out from the sell-out here... it was nice. But how is ratebeer going to attract new users now that this news is public? The next time you go to a pub, are you going to admit to people you’re a RateBeer user? The first thing they’ll say is It’s owned by InBev. So people are going to stop telling others to join. And if RateBeer does attract new users, it’s going to be sort of people who don’t care about the war against big beer...and, in that way, the ratings will get skewed. Eventually it becomes like UnTappd...just a social network with lots of people who are not really into beer and don’t really know anything about it.

piwnepodroze (516) - POLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Nawet bardziej Jezus to mocarz (12% alko) o ogromnej pełni, z dominującą czekoladą balansującą między deserową a słodką. Obok niej kawa, nuty lukrecji, melasa, a w tle akcenty palone. Duża pełnia wiąże się ze słodyczą i koniec końców to #teamsłodyczka wygrywa starcie. Niemniej jednak jest to zwyczajnie zajebiście dobre.

Black with a reddish brown head.. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Big time licorice and coffee flavors with some dark chocolate. Thick, rich and possibly the best Imperial Stout I have had!
