16 oz can at the Drunken Monkey, Augsburg, Germany. Enjoyed on Mar 2 2018.oobawa (1971) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2018
Black color with a huge bubbly light brown head.
Roasted malt, a lot of sweetness, chocolate and general yumminess. So balanced and tasty. Probably the donuts bring the extra sweetness compared to the Imperial Biscotti Break.
Seems like a sweeter version of Biscotti Break, with a heightened milk chocolate vein and a sweet bun backbone that grows a tad cloy on the fade. Vanilla and anise round out the profile, while bakers chocolate and coffee pop up on the finish. Pours a thick, viscous black with a brown head and modest lacing. Perfect feel; nice chocolate doughnut nose. Good, but gets a bit indulgent for my tastes. mviljamaa (240) - FINLAND - MAR 3, 2018
Pours with thick coffee colored head. Color is coffee. Aroma is fresh, somewhat raspberry-like, with noticeable almond aroma, faint vanilla, capuccino aromas. Palate is quite smooth, medium+ -thick, well balanced. Taste is less "edgy" than the aroma: rich coffee body with milky/creamy toppings, some initial sweet and rich maltiness that settles further down the line, noticeable almond taste (which is harmonious), vanilla becomes more pronounced in after taste up to the point of almost feeling as if one had just eaten vanilla ice cream (with some milky coffee). In essence, it's rich, it's sweet, it's satisfying. It's not overly rich nor overy sweet, but in satisfying portions. 1 pint of this seems to still be drinkable (i.e. not too filling) and not too much either, so relative to the portion, this beer is very satisfying. 1 pint of fulfilling beer enjoyment! Even if one could always be picky and "ask for something more", I would rate this beer as a "reference", because it satisfies the things that people look for in beer in 1 pint. weitz15 (642) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2018
Thick, oily brown pour, thin brown head. Aroma of nuts and sweet malts. Flavor is a malted brown sugar. Nice.

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana ciemnobrązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko redukuje się do obrączki. W zapachu kawa, ciasta, lekko alkohol. Wycenie niskie, ciało solidne, piwo oblepia podniebienie. Gdyby trochę poleżało byłoby idealnie. Bardzo dobre. Sissio (1834) - Orsenigo, ITALY - FEB 28, 2018

Can. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and caramel. Flavor was quite sweet with caramel, chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted malts and had notes of brown sugar. ffaoe (1088) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2018
Aromas are of malt, coffee, faint chocolate. Pitch black in color with huge long lasting brown head. Full body. Taste is of milk chocolate, coffee, faint vanilla. oberschlesier (281) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - FEB 25, 2018
Aroma: hazelnut wafer, sweet chocolate, fried donought crust, some delicate vanilla and coffee notes are also detectable. Alc. perfectly hidden.
Taste: sweetness and generally all what's also in aroma. Without bold roasted notes. No alc.
Head is nice, brown. Some lacing. Carbonation is low+. Beer is oily and has very silky, smooth texture.
I'm not sure if it's really porter, not RIS, but generally it's fantastic beer. In Imperial Porter style it's probably the best beer I've ever drunk till now, and in RIS style it's one of the best.
