mikeyo1 (746) - Linkping, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle @ home. Cellared for 4 years. Pours almost black with almost no head. Aroma of cold fresh coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and port vine. Taste is roasted and smooth, with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, plums, some raisins and slight vinous notes. Medium carbonation. Lingering notes of coffee bitterness, vanilla and licorice. Has aged very well, has mellowed out and with the coffee still tasting great.

Antzrhere (128) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Pours thin black with little head. Aroma of dark fruit and peat. Taste of caramel, soya sauce, smoke, coffee and port like flavours. Quite fizzy for the style, clean but abit thin. Easy. Abit weak for a bit an imperial stout but a good drink

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle - Black colour, medium, creamy light brown head with average retention and fine lacing. Intense coffee aromas with some toasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Taste is also ruled by coffee and chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation, smooth texture, long roasted finish. Alcohol is well disguised. Well rounded coffee stout, easy drinkable and smooth.

Sjohnh (837) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Gosh. Expected the coffee. Not so much the banana, which is prominent in the taste and the nose and has a softening effect. So, dark of course, with a short lived brown head. Low carb, full body. One of the most drinkable stouts Ive had at this ABV.
