Aroma with roasted malt, some cold coffee slightly diluted with milk, dried black fruits. dark honey. Taste of burnt malt, dark chocolate’s bitterness, charcoal, some dried walnuts, brown sugar and dark honey. Good! VertBaconStrips (2389) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JAN 18, 2017
This stuff is fantastic! Soft nose with a bunch of things - walnuts (says so on the bottle and the bottle doesn’t lie), dark dark dark milk chocolate, red twizzlers, the slight smoke has depth of earthy qualities, plenty of roasted malts, vanilla, molasses, touch of toffee, salt. Nothing dominates - softly complex. Dammit if this stuff didn’t hit me hard tonight. Excellent flavours that are mostly mellow, well balanced and totally succulent. The bitterness is there but never even remotely dominant. Ok, ... well when it warms that bitterness comes out pretty big but there’s so much more that it only adds to the experience. Huge deep roast, licorice, bakers chocolate, cracker, vanilla, smoke is there, quite dry at this point but it wasn’t always so. Vanilla, red candy sweetness, burnt logs (wood logs, not logs logs) in my mouth rules, molasses, a hint of alcohol here and there. Mouth is happy with the changes that go between bitterness, puckering dryness, permanent aftertaste, smoke breath. Wonderful. My second Hornbeer - very pricy at 13$ but mostly justified.

Pitch black, small coffee head. Wine, distant smoke, malty sweetness in the aroma. Mild, roasted, perfectly balanced, a bit nutty. Long lasting bitter finish. Frothmeister (799) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
500ml bottle. In the cellar for a year and a half. Wow. Pours black, light does not penetrate, stars are lost. Black. A thin cocoa powder coloured head on top of that. On the nose, molasses, leather, light ash, raisin and notes that make me think stout meets a lightly peated Scotch. HUGE on the tongue with molasses, tonnes of roasty malt notes, sponge toffee, faint red licorice, espresso, and a faint trace of alcohol that heads into caramel, butterscotch, heavy tannins, and a faint mint note in a lingering note of molasses in the huge finish. This is awesome. Why did I only buy ONE?! tricksta_p (4658) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
From tap at Uiltje Bar, Haarlem. Aroma is lovely coffee, roasted malt, notes of oak, dark chocolate, mild caramel, sweetish chocolate cake. Flavour is above medium sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is full and rich. Great balance, amazing chocolate cake Stout. Beautiful.

Bottle at home. Pours black, nose is soy sauce, chocolate, liquorice, taste is salty, chocolate, soy, bitter. dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2016
Ticks every box for an Imperial Stout, but there is something extra often that this one lacks. Still a great beer, but it falls a liitle bit flat. Jashiu (1324) - Gdañsk, POLAND - NOV 19, 2016

Coffee and chocolate dominate both taste and aroma.
It could have been more full bodied - I’ve missed that a lot.
