Bottle. Had this as my night cap beer and it fit the bill - night cap sipper. Poured a black color with an off white head. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roast, and some more vanilla. Sweet sipper with some alcohol in the fnish.

Scipio (1111) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Pours an oily black with a medium, dark tan, almost brown head. Quite roasted, the nose consists of a balance of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, as well as minor licorice. The taste is bitter, rich, and pretty sweet, which helps mask some of the rather potent alcohol flavors in here. It still has a heavy roasted flavor that carried over from the aroma. Powerful coffee and vanilla is found with a solid caramel base. Lingering coffee finish isn’t all that strong. The booze leaves a mild burn. Medium to full in body, with a thick, oily texture, while carbonation is flat. Exceptional, and I won’t forgetting this one anytime soon. I think I’ll buy a bunch of these and give them to my friends as Christmas presents.

Fekete szín, minimális hab, amely szinte azonnal eltűnik. Kávés, csokoládés, vaníliás illat. Komplex csokoládés, cappuccinos, vaníliás édes ízvilág. Az alkoholt tökéletesen elfedik. Az egyik legjobb imperial stout, amit valaha ittam.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Bottiglia, pub (Valhalla, Pavia). Colore nero molto intenso, schiuma leggera. Caffè molto prepotente sia al naso, sia al palato. In bocca però arriva prima la vaniglia, ma lascia subito spazio all’amaro tostato e al caffè. Luppolo ben nascosto. Con l’aumentare della temperatura l’alcol inizia a farsi sentire (forse un po’ troppo se la si lascia scaldare troppo).

Massive beer. Lots of roast, coffee and vanilla. Smooth and thick. Sweet and a bitter finish. Some sweet and red fruits, some chocolate. Very good!

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, brązowa, średnio-obfita, redukuje się praktycznie do zera dość szybko. W aromacie ogromna ilość wanilii, gdzieś w tle majaczy kakako i mleczna czekolada, trochę utlenionych, miodowych nut. W smaku znowu bardzo dużo wanilii, obok sporo kakao i mlecznej czekolady, jak w zapachu, poza tym paloność, kawa na finiszu, alko minimalnie wyczuwalne, ale nie w ordynarny sposób, bardziej zbalansowany. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka niska, posmak kawowy, waniliowy.

Thisis12ptfont (1199) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Aromas of dark roasted malts, coffee. toffee, vanilla beans, cacao, dark chocolate, nuttiness, black malts, subtle figs, raisins and black licorice. Pours pitch black with a very thin mocha rim and no lacing whatsoever. Taste brings remarkably smooth notes of dark roasted malts, roasted coffee, fresh vanilla beans, vanilla extract, toffee, nuttiness, almonds, black licorice, oats, dark grain malt, coffee oils, subtle campfire roast and toasted caramel. Finishes slightly bitter from the coffee yet, smooth vanilla sweetness comes through as well. Overall, this is a real treat with dark roasted malts, fresh coffee and sweet vanilla notes in the forefront. A+ rating.

cereal, chocolate, roasty, resin, and of course vanilla. Delicious beer to sip.

Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2017
(Bottle) Pitch black colour with brief, dark brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, roasted oats and a balanced cacao bitterness. Full body, almost oily mouthfeel. Quite sweet. Hardly subtle, possibly too sweet. But really tasty, with generous amounts of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Very nice.
