The perfect blend of chocolate, vanilla, espresso and just the right touch of chili peppers. Creamy, slightly syrupy body, and an almost endless dry(ish) finish. At one time, I thought this beer was too austerely dry, but now it seems like absolute perfection.

Pours almost black with small brown head. Aroma is vanilla, toffee, coffee, hint of tobacco, liquorice, some chili. Medium sweet, medium to high bitter, wonderful long, salty finish with chili kick. Full body, oily texture, rather high carbonation. Great taste without being too syrupy or sticky, really explodes in the mouth. Fantastic brew.

coffee, chocolate, vanilla, black, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium body, creamy. Perfect balance of coffee and chocolate in aroma. Nice vanilla notes. Black, almost no head. Solid medium sweetness matched with pepper; brilliant combination. Silky smooth, light bitter finish. I would have never guessed that this carries a 13% a.b.v.; absolutely no indication in taste. Imperials are far from my favorite genre, but this transcends such preferences. Shockingly delicious.

Beckons you closer with the first sniff - a hint of what will follow. Or at least that's what you hope ... And with a small sip, you're rewarded - your palate rejoices, your heart soars - your head starts thinking of running immediately back to the bottle shop which sold you this magic ale. Good sh*t. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pianka niewielka, sycząca, od razu po nalaniu opada do zera jak na pepsi. Barwa czarna z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat to potężna dawka kakao, szwajcarskich czekoladek i kawy, w tle wanilia i specyficzny zapach papryczek. W smaku dość słodkie, dość rzadkie, czuć wszystko to co w zapachu plus pikantność papryczek na finiszu, karmel, paloność, cola... Goryczka średnia, tytoniowa, alkohol nieźle wkomponowany, przyjemnie rozgrzewający. Wysycenie średnie, za wysokie jak na RISa.
Całkiem niezły RIS, ale nie wybitny, jak sugerują oceny na RB. Poza całą maestrią w zapachu i smaku brakuje mi tu gęstości, ciała, to się po prostu pije jak zwykłego, lekkiego sweet stouta, w dodatku przegazowanego... Oczywiście pikantne papryczki też nie poprawiają sytuacji...
Ps.
Piwo ponad rok spędziło "na leżaku".

brandon31g (37) - HONG KONG - AUG 25, 2016
Pours a black body with tiny tan head. Aroma gives lots of roasted coffee and cocoa, some vanilla and hints of pepper. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla with a touch of chilli. There is great amount of sweetness but nicely balanced by roasty flavour. Medium to full body with smooth mouthfeel.

kapusil (1243) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 20, 2016
0.355l bottle. Pitch black body, thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, coffee and caramel. Taste of chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, caramel and peppers. Sweet imperial stout without any significant hop character. The pepper is a nice twist in it. Very nice.

BreWedge (496) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
12 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours an opaque brown with a small mocha head. Aromas are rich coffee, chocolate, black liquorice, and tobacco. Tastes are chocolate, red liquorice, and alcohol. Full bodied,minimal carbonation, alcohol warmth on a surprisingly short finish. While I’m normally not a big fan of the imperials, this one wasn’t bad.

Franckg (1330) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe noire opaque avec de minces reflets noisettes. Pas de col de mousse. Arômes de chocolat noir robuste, vanille, grains de café entiers de torréfaction moyenne, fond de caramel salé. En bouche, une tonne de chocolat noir onctueux sur un lit de café noisette. Également essence de vanille, caramel, amertume légèrement boisée avec un arrière-goût de sucre. Texture qui pourrait être un peu plus onctueux et corps rond et riche. Le très haut taux d’alcool est parfaitement intégré aux saveurs, ce qui est un exploit en soi. Excellente bière.
