Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown, black beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma is licorice, roasted malts and darker chocolate. Flavor is quite sweet with a bitter finish. Nice influences of the chocolate and roasted characters, very nice in balance. Very good beer! prawlie (1675) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle bought at Reading Beer Festival 2013 into an Achel glass at home. Black with a generous bubbly chocolate brown head. Boozy and ’IPA’ hopped aroma, smells like a black IPA. Malt, quite hoppy, smooth. Tasty. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2013

bottle.pitch black colour just like the abyss itself.brown head.nice and thick body with roasted malt flavor,coffee and hints of chocolate.a fine porter speciment. patricks110 (2659) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
Awesome beer that I finally got a chance to try after several years at the Hoppy Loft in Brussels. Opaque jet black body with a big heavy and dense tan head. The nose is intense and robust with massive roasted malt notes, big espresso and mild vanilla aromas. Sweet and earthy up front with a rich chocolate roasted malt. The finish is robust and heavy with a warmth through the aftertaste. A great sipping beer and an awesome Imperial Porter overall. Silvan7 (1268) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle @ home. Buonissimo aroma di caffè tostato e cioccolato. Si avverte da subito una luppolatura non pungente, ed una nota alcolica. Colore nero impenetrabile dai decisi riflessi rossastri. Schiuma cremosa ma con bolle più grandi rispetto alla solita porter. In bocca è calda, dal gusto rotodno e con punte dolciastre ben bilanciate dal caffè. Corpo pienissimo, sul finale lascia la bocca sorprendentemente asciutta grazie ad una luppolatura copiosa ma mai sgradevole. Nasconde con facilità irrisoria i suoi 9 e più gradi.

Donkere coffekkeur met een zeer fijne kraag. Volle, koffie geur met een hoppige bittere toon. Smaakt lekker bitter met een zware, koffie en fruitge smaak met een alchol nasmaak. ThreeCats (1002) - ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2013
Big creamy mocha head over opaque black body. Aroma of mild roast, lots of chocolate, some cherry and dark fruit. Taste of heavy roast and cherry, dark fruit, chocolate, bit of ash. Dry warming palate. Very much a Porter, not a stout, and a good one
