ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, batch #112, courtesy of Ratebeer Brackets. pours a deep, dark brown that sits black in the glass with a thin ring of khaki lace around the edges. aroma is great with heavy, rich black coffee, espresso beans, and cocoa powder backed by earthy topsoil, cake batter, roast, and very subtle vanilla. flavor is really delicious with a heavy dose of dark chocolate cake layered atop hazelnuts, espresso, roasted malts, and smoke backed by smooth lactose sugar, vanilla pudding, and even a touch of caramel. palate is full bodied and creamy with smooth carbonation and a lingering finish of roast and cocoa. overall, a damn nice effort from pipeworks.

Bottle shared at the Tampa Tasting, poured a dark black color with aromas of fresh pressed coffee, light roast, some light hops and some earth. Flavors are the same, mostly black coffee, light bitterness and roast in the aftertaste. Pretty amazed at this beer for such a high abv, didn’t taste like it, a great beer.

Almost black, thin beige lacing. Very pleasant aroma of roasted coffee with hints of vanilla, chocolate malt, and caramel. Sweet, but in a balanced manner. Smooth, full-bodied, and masks the alcohol quite well. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013

Habanero (4908) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2013
Aroma has mocha coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables, chocolate and hints of licorice. Flavour has mocha, ashy notes, soy sauce and salty licorice. Rather smooth and silky palate. Too salty but definitely not bad anyway.
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head with fair lacings. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and caramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with some alcohol. Full bodied,oily texture and flat to soft carb. A great impy. Pinball (12568) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2013
bottle from ølbutikken.
pitch dark, smooth large brown head.
roasted malts, vanilal beans, coffee, chocolate, moderate hops in the aroma. Quite smooth and dessert-like.
Flavor is herbal, roasted malts, coffee, balanced with hops, but very delicately, palate is very smooth, a "plain" very tasty imp stout with some coffee notes. aftertaste is coffee, chocolate, sort of like an espresso chocolate with a bit of roasted malts and hops. chrisv10 (18700) - DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013
