Dark black color with a average to large, frothy, good lancing, mostly diminishing, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, dark fruits, chilli notes. Very complex. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very very nice ;o)) This is very good stuff. (240508)
RB#2700: Handbottled, thanks to Papsoe for pulling this out. Pours dark brown with a lacing mild chocolate brown head. Thick chocolate malty aroma with a mild note of dried fruit. Dark chocolate flavoured, solid bitterness. Finish lingers with a solid dark chocolate and a really heavy bitterness. Chocolate and bitterness overload - brilliant.

A former top-50 beer entered to celebrate my rating number 10200. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, tar, and hops. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of roasted malt as well as notes of alcohol and oranges, leading to a dry bitter chocolate finish. Thanks Jeppe for sharing. joergen (28456) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2008

Bottled, thanks GT2! Black, small head. Aroma of dark chocolate and licorice. Sweet and soft, full bodied. Sugar and tobacco, lots of cocoa, growing bitter finish. A very solid chocolaty sweet stout. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
(Hand bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Bierkönig. Pours a completely opaque, pitch black with a dense, thick and creamy cappuchinoish head - impressive hand bottling done by cquiroga here. Very chocolatey nose. Initially this is rich and full-bodied yet with an odd lightness to it. Comes fairly complex with very burned malts, chocolate and coffee notes combined with a degree of acidity probably deriving from the malt. There’s an underlying sweetness balanced by some malt astringency. Indeed a well brewed and balanced Imperial Stout. 150607 madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
19th July 2008. Smooth slightly creamy and remarkably light Impy Stout. Smooth non bitter coffee, a little chocolate and an undertone of subtle red fruit. Thoroughly enjoyable! cgarvieuk (24800) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2008
