4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 22$ Bottle ordered from belium website. Pours a velvety oily smooth dark molasses with some orange red hues on the top and bottom. Big fat aromas that grab your nosey attention of coffee beans enjoying the company of burnt malts, chocolate, wood, slight hint of whiskey, and brown sugar. The flavors, I’m just blown away. This is already one of the top coffee stouts I’ve ever had. Thick and oily on the ole grub taster. The coffee really moves over the palate and has a big party inviting his other buddies, burnt mic malty, chocolate sue, Frank Mc woody, Stacy brown sugar, and Sam dark fruity. Very bitter with the mixes of coffee and hops which go mostly hidden as well as the high abv (mostly only though the nose on the way down). Medium sweet and very complex. Worth waiting for but not 20$, I’d say 10$.
Bottle from somewhere, been awhile. Poured black with dark tan head. Aroma strong coffee and choc. Light carb med bod. Taste balanced bitter sweet choc. Grzesiek79 (4452) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 23, 2017
Many thanks for this rare beer to tderoeck. Piekny zapach intensywny jagody w kawie takie skojarzenie na poczatku. Wyglad to czarne jak tunele w kopalni wegla bez jakichkolwiek przeswitow. Piana jakby 2 fazowa 2 barwna spora potem szybko sie zmniejsza polowa jej ciemno brazowa, a warstwa goran sino fioletowa. Trzymala sie srednio dlugo ale pozostala taka malenka i wygladalo to jak crema na porzadnym espresso. Wlasnie tu kawa rzadzi od samego poczatku, smaczna, szlachetna i wyrazista, moze sprawiala wrazenie jakby byla doslodzona cukrem trzcinowym. Ale kapitalny Imperialny Stout. Kilkanascie procent zupelnie niewyczuwalne. Wspaniale pasowalo do slonego sera owczego Pecorino Romano. kevinator (2800) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Mighty good! Roasted and heavy malt presence. Hop bitterness on the finish with coffee and chocolate laced throughout. Great stuff. Very black and heavy. Grima (2510) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2017

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Dzikie, czekoladowe, nieco zbyt jednowymiarowo słodkie. Świetna kawa.

Cocoa bomb describes it well. Super milky and tasty. Black pour from 22oz bottle at home.. Coconut and fig I think. FatPhil (17165) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
330ml bottle (?, ?) BB2015/ martjoobolut (5239) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
Kinda beany aroma, some burnt cabbage, bit of coffee, other roasty things.. Black, small tan head. Sweet smooth palate. Sweet sugary taste too. Erm, this one hasn’t aged particularly well, the sugar hasn’t subsided at all. Fairly drinkable though, but nothing to get excited by.Wish I’d traded this...
Bottle, bb 2015 (shared by fatphil, thanks). Pours black with brownish head. Aroma is intense sweet chocolate, malt, roast. Flavor is sweet and bitter, chocolate, cocoa, malt, roast, some coffee, fruits, burnt notes. Finish is sweet and smokey-bitter, bit acidic. Overall: very good.

330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown almost black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Alcohol, roast, very dark chocolate, herbal and very faint coffee in aroma. Sweet, sugary, coffee, chocolate cake, milky in taste. Sweet milk chocolate in aftertaste. Soft roasty bitterness. Alcohol is kind of covered. Feels bit dead. But solid brew.
