Thick, black colored, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, bit caramel, toffee, milky and dark chocolate, lots of coffee and beans, bit vanilla, some dark fruit notes. Taste is quite sweet roasted malt with some caramel, bit brown sugar, dark chocolate, strong coffee and coffee beans, some vanilla, bit alcohol and warmth but well hidden, medium roasted coffee bitterness, dryish coffee finish and aftertaste. Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy. EdButterfield (116) - Dronfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2018
Can @ Warwick University Real Ale Festival, Feb 2018. No tasting notes as I was already very drunk by the time I listed the scores. DavidSvinth (495) - DENMARK - APR 11, 2018
UPDATED: APR 11, 2018 Fra flaske med voks. Købt i Beer Lovers Wien.
Dyb sort med lavt brunt skum.
Intens aroma af kaffe. Dyb og kompleks.
Smagen er fyldig og bitter med en diskret sødme. Smagen af kaffe dominerer. Smooth og lige til at drikke. brianza_ale (223) - ITALY - APR 7, 2018
33cl in mikkeller short pint glass. Pours a minimal to small full dark brown head, pitch black. Smells high quality and very smooth south american/jamaican/vietnamese home made moka coffee, caramel malts, meringue, "nera paesana" chocolate cake, very nice dried fruits/raisins/dark berries at the end. Tastes deep roasted sweet malts, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, wooden cocoa powder/beans. Medium plus very rounded sweetness, and medium roasted beans bitterness: everything lies in between the bitter sweet balance, and coffee character is smoothen out perfectly by the sweet choco side. "Serve at 10-12", I would say the warmer the better by no means, even more than you would normally do with other high abv / stouts. Full bodied, viscous, light steecky low but always perceivable carbonation. The hi quality coffee gives out all is balance and smoothness to this tasty imp stout. Sort of a balanced version of the more wildly popular "vanilla shake", very nice but expected a bit more. MaltoseChalice13 (40) - Somerset, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2018
Used to be one of my favorite coffee imperial stouts. Just a damn good iteration of what it is. Coffee, thick, rich, viscous and damn tasty.

Pours oily black with a thin, brown head and some lacing. The aroma is coffee, espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, milk chocolate. The taste is coffee, dark chocolate, pralines, some vanilla, roasted malts. Smooth, rather full-bodied, long roasted finish, some alcohol warmth. Very coffee-forward as expected, good. vanvenlo (1992) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 Can (3-Mar-18) Spirit choc aroma. Black, low head and suds lacing. Sweet choc coffee herbal flavour. Bitter choc coffee finish and spirit herbal chocolate aftertaste. Nordcore (1772) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2018
