Dark brown coloured beer with a creamy beige head. Aroma is vinous mixed with roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, liquorish, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee going into a slightly smoke bitter finish. Heavy palate and very long finish. One of my favorites.

Draught at ACBF 2012. Pitch black - offwhite head. Burned, fruity, high malty, smokey notes, dried fruits, dark malts, licorice dark chocolate, wooden notes. Fantastic. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours thick oil dark black oil in color with a mocha head that has a cinnamon crimson hue. Aroma brings huge smokey peat notes so smooth and delicious in the nose. The flavor and body are equally as wonderful with huge roasted malts, coffee, and cacao to start off and then the smooth and sweet smokey notes come in, followed by a drop to dryness that I never expected.

Bottle: Thanks Papsø:
Pitch black pour, pitch black beer in glass with an almost pitch blackish brown medium sized vast amd slow disappearing (some dark brown islands) head. Guess together with Mikkellet George, theae twouat have been the best looking imperial stouts encountered! Get a watery mouth, let’s taste this one!
Smell roasted barleys, toffee, caramel, flowers, chocolate, coffee, coffee roast, creamy and softly/gentle burn or smoke something... Very light but something burned is.
Taste is inmense, deep and complex. A briliant mix of roasted barleys, roasted malts, coffee, dark chxolate, roasted herbs, a light smooth and hentle hit if liquorice, lot of smooth roast, a hint of dark fruitS, Some
Spices, light warmth but no alcohol (which the alcohol not there is good!) and some light smoke ashy somethingvut so well balanced. Smoked malts... Very nice bitter.
Aftertaste is lovely dark chocolate,some creamy notes, light to medium bitter, fine coffee roast and some grass. Delicious.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full bodu abd a light creamy but more oily texture.
This beer is truely amazing, suprenely balanced, smooth and deep! Damn this is good! Divine! So smoothly balanced, no irritating nasty bitterness no irritating oatmeal. Just a good roast with smooth chocolate and coffee. jesperhammer (4736) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012

Bottle. Aged for a couple of years in my cellar. Black with a nice brown head. Aroma of chocolate, prunes, cocoa, coffee and dark roasted malts. Think palate with a flavour of coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and dark fruit. Sweetness is wrapped with malty, bitter notes reminding of coffee beans. Very solid and powerful flavour. I really like this a lot. 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2012
