4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very thick sweet taste. Stays on pallet. Think of the blackest thing u know of and u have an idea of how black it is.
Beaten up can (thanks UPS).
Pours black with a very thick chocolate-reddish head. Very stiky, as the foam dissipates it leavs an oily film on the glass walls. Promising.
Aroma of roasted malts, roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate, some milky (lactose?) notes too. I get some alcohol.
I take the first sip and... damn, this is probably the thickest beer I ever had! It feels like drinking melt dark chocolate mixed with a strong liquor. So, taste is rather sweet (chocolate, caramel), but totally balanced by bitter roasted and alcoholic notes. At the first sips I can definitely feel a alcoholic warming in my throat.
Mouthfeel is fantastic: thick, oily, the beers sticks to the tongues and all over the mouth leaving a long espresso aftertaste. This is the kind of body the Imperial Biscotti Break lacks.
Great beer. Great sipper. wekker84 (2550) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2018

Me like, best Impy i have had in a while, no soy sauce! Villyzzz (463) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2018
Can at home. Pours black with a medium sized copper head. Aroma has sweet caramel, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet roasted coffee and cocoa with some booziness. Full palate. Really nice! achimczi (41) - Vanlose, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2018
App: black, vert little head. Aroma: mainly coffee and dark chocolate, also rosty notes, noble alcohol, if you can call it that. Taste: loads of dark chocolate and coffee, maybe plum in chocolate. Palate: low carbonation, medium sweet, with rather full body, which is to my taste, unfortunately with alcoholic finish. Overall: Not very interesting, but I like sweetness and body, but as I said - not so much going on there. All in all it's just okay, but nothing more than that. I was expecting so much more, again...

I like this better than the port version. Nice roast and rich. Kind of the quintessential beer of the style. Antonio369 (246) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2018

W zapachu duużo kakao, czekolady i czerwonych owoców (luźne skojarzenia: żurawina, wiśnia, różane nadzienie z pączków, granat), może nawet lekko estrowo. Gładkie, dość słodkie, ale bez przesady, nie jest mulące.
