Deep soy-sauce color with a quickly dissipating thin ecru head. Nose is of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate. Good mouthfeel, just a little thin. Chocolate and malt goodness. Finishes a little bitter. Just doesn’t compete well with other imperials out there. tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Super malty, sweet, bitter. Not really my cup of tea. Too heavy
When you pour it, it looks great, but doesn’t quite hit the spot. Despotis (222) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 28, 2010

Pours black with a thin off white head. Mild aroma that I can’t place. Chocolate, charred malt, pine, liquorice and finishes with a mild bitter. Good beet zootfinster (221) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2007
A nice, thick, dark brown, yeasty, malty,sweet, yummy, tasty and chewy beer. (How’s that for a technical review). This is really a unique tasting beer. You get a really yeasty palate, more then most but it is pleasant. Less pleasant in the auroma
I’ll have it for dinner. Nothing else. You don’t need it.

Black por with a slight tan head. not a very big aroma. Roated malts and that aabout it........the usual cofffee and roasted malt flavors. This is scary drinkable. I likes all though I am a tad disappointed. winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a thick oily black with a tight thin brown head. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee meld with smoke and a pronounced hop flavopr and aroma. The texture is rich and creamy and finishes lightly bitter and gently smokey. Brilliant beer. Probabeer (219) - - JUN 13, 2016
Muy buena. Sabor inicial potente, y sorprendentemente largo, pero no alcoholico. Bastante cuerpo. mecafilo (219) - Perugia, ITALY - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark bown colour, big frothy tan head. Aroma is moderate malty, with notes of roasted malts and little notes of coffee and chocolate, and moderate hoppy, with notes of herbs, grass and little notes of resin; additional light notes of alcohol and wood. Taste is softly sweet, moderate bitter, little sour. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, medium carbonation.
