ozzatoadisback (214) - ITALY - DEC 12, 2017
Pours an opaque black or very dark brown with not the slightest head to speak of. Of course you don't expect much in a 12%abv beer, but this one's just totally flat. A not too vivid aroma shows roasted malts and some red fruits among a warming alcohol feel. Taste notes as the smell suggested, again not vivid but most of all not well integrated. Too much alcohol/booze, an unpleasant burnt caramel finish, maybe slight oxidation. Dense but somewhat (wrongfully) smooth, alcoholic mouthfeel. Totally flat as obvious. A completely wrong bottle.

Sigmund (7962) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Kvadrat. ABV is 11.9%. Black colour, moderate beige head. Aroma of roast malts, cold coffee and chocolate, hints of molasses and fusel. Rich mouthfeel. Rich and medium sweet flavour, notes of roast malts, strong coffee and dark chocolate, hints of tar and liquorice, also some vinous hints with raisins and prunes.

szczupaczu (207) - Rurzyca, POLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste ze znikomą pianą. W aromacie kawa i likier. W smaku głównie tylko likier, rodzynki, owoce i mleczna czekolada. Dość słodkie, całkiem nieźle zbilansowane. Goryczka delikatna, ciała średnio. Spoko piwo, nawet bardzo spoko.

anstei (2664) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours darkest brown. Aroma is boozy, green peppers, some coffee, but mostly green peppers. Body is heavy and strong, but strangely stingy and spicy. Boozy and strong, yet not really tasty. Sticky, sulfur, strange alcohols. Solubles, Totally not an impy stout. Meh.

jandorris (853) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
W aromacie coca-cola z całym mnóstwem mlecznej czekolady. Dla mnie to piwo smakuje jak rozpuszczona czekolada na zimno, z jednocześnie zaznaczonym palonym finiszem, gdzieś tam nieśmiało wychodzą rodzynki, karmel, wanila. Gdyby tylko miało więcej ciała byłyby zadatki na świetne piwo.

Muggus69 (2756) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 12.10.18
Pours an opaque very dark brown body, strained tan head.
Grainy nutty toasty aroma upfront - cocoa, licorice, dark sugars & toffee, some dark fruits in the mix.
Good texture - rich thick creamy lowish carbonation, good weight.
Lovely rich sweet malt character on the body - milk chocolate, dark caramel, burnt toast, blackened nuts. Smooth finish, hints of dark plums & raisins.
Damn good!

karpik (1442) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 16, 2017
Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, raisins in nose. Pours very dark brown almost without a head. Taste is sweet with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, alcohol and caramel. Medium to low bitter finish, flat carbonation, full body. Overall very good stuff.

Drago7 (508) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Z: mocno palone słody, rodzynki, karmel. S: słody, czekolada deserowa, intensywna palonosc wymieszaną że śliwką i rodzynka.

drmet (1036) - GERMANY - SEP 5, 2017
-pours the darkest of brown with mahogany tinges and a small,foamy,khaki head
-Follows the nose + spicy,molasses,cocoa
-low carbonation
-full body
A great, big Lager.
Not as roasty as the Imperial Stouts, not quite Bock-y either.

Vighals (4493) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 Mørk brun, nesten svart med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter engelsk lakris, mørk sjokolade og stenfrukter. Middels fylde. Noe mer salt lakris i smak. Søtlig maltig, kandis og lett brent karamell. Middels lang.
