UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Yes, coffee dominates here, and I hate coffee but it taste damn good in this brew. I luv Founders. This brew is the base for some majestic stuff...

335 ml bottle from Kill The Cat, Brick Lane, London, UK. It pours dark brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma is particular, chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, marshmallows. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Strong alcohol notes for the ABV %. Body is full, carbonation is fine. Overall not liked it so much, my expectations were much higher!

Bottle, 355mL. Home. A sparkling pitch black beer with a big beige creamy foamy head ; medium retention ; ok lacing. Black chocolate, coffee, roast, alcohol, pepper. Light to medium sweet, light to medium dry bitter spicy ; light warming background ; nice balance. Medium good body, light to medium texture, soft carbonation, coffee spicy lasting strong finish. Overall, superb, delicious :)

Black coloured ale with a nice espresso like head. Aroma: chocolate, roast, coffee beans and some mocha. Taste: roasted malts, milk chocolate, some coffee and some sweetness with some nice amount of bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation.

Well worth the lofty rep. A great balance of fresh chocolate / roast and firm hops which makes for an elegant drink with power (make sense). If anything plays under its 8.5% in terms of palate weight but the beer is better off for it. A line of sweet stones to finish.

Aroma is intense coffee and chocolate, reminds me Peche Mortel. Dark brown with a small tan head. Flavour is rich dark chocolate, coffee and molasses with a bitter dark roasty finish - just a touch of booze. Medium body, not quite as full as I’d hoped, soft carbonation, but slightly sharp. Overall a terrific beer, comes up a little short compared to other world class imperial stouts though. Couldn’t find a bottling date but this one was at least 3-4 years old.

Piana obfita, średnie i duże oczka, opada szybko. Kolor czarny nieprzejrzysty. Aromat, polonosc, słodycz, czekolada i kawa. Smak kawa, gorzka czekolada, nuty palone przez co lekko kwaskowe, slodycz, sa tez nuty owocowe, przy czym całość średnio pełna, chmielenie wyraźne pasujące. Piwo złożone, smaki grają, nic nie dominuje, pije sie bardzo dobrze.

Had on tap & from bottles, just had 1 that was bottled on 12/3/2015. It was still great, however the coffee had fallen off, so it became regular chocolate cake. What a downside. I never got a ton of coffee fresh, but it always has a nice level of roast to chocolate. Both fresh & aged it had a great aroma & mouthfeel. Gorgeous mocha head & appropriate lacing.

Great aroma, rich, cocoa, coffee, very intense. But not very good in taste, plain. Not bad.

imperial_suchy (199) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Piwo koloru czarnego ze skromną beżową pianką. W aromacie głównie kawa, praliny, trochę kakao. W smaku gorzka kawa, czekolada, kakao, wyraźna paloność. Piwo jest wytrawne i dobrze ułożone. Ogólnie bardzo fajna kawowo czekoladowa kompozycja. Mi to odpowiada.
