UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 2009 edition, firkin at 501 Club in Minneapolis. Appearance is that of...darkness. No head, sweet aroma with a soy sauce type of smell. Sweet, thick syrupy mouthfeel with little to no carbonation. Lots going on in the flavor with chocolate and coffee coming out the most for me. Nice smooth almost creamy finish. Re-rate - Had it from a keg at Darkness Day 2009 and enjoyed it much more than from the firkin. The little bit of extra carbonation brought out all the flavors so much more for me and tasted like heaven in a glass. Everything they mention mixes so well together but you can taste each flavor individually if you look for it. This beer is worth the hype.
PAKK 2017 - wersja 2015. Imponująco nachmielony RIS, bucha żywica, czekolada, wiśnie, subtelna śliwka. W smaku ponownie wuchta żywicy, pierwotnie posmak mlecznej czekolady, po chwili skontrowany ziarnami gorzkiego kakao. Bardzo zbalansowane, gładziutkie, mega NACHMIELONY RIS., super piwko, jesteśmy pod wrażeniem. Łączona nota 4.6/5 mariuspoenari (2730) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2017
Very dark brown pour with a tall fine-grained tan head that is slow to rise to the surface. Notes of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, molasses, dark cherries, roasted coffee beans, some very nice sherry-like bitternes and veeeery light fruit sourness. A really well-made stout, dark, heavy, roasty, just the way I like them. Maybe just a bit boozy for its ABV, though. kingcom (1) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 18, 2017 does not count
Awesome looking 2016 bottle with cool artwork and black colored wax that didn’t overly stick to the bottle which is good in my opinion. Anyways, I shared this bottle between 2 other people at about 50F in a snifter.
Appearance: Pitch black with about 1 finger of head
Aroma: burnt chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit
Taste: Completely tasted like it smelled which was awesome
Palate: Thick and full
Overall: To date, this was one of the best regular imperial stouts I’ve ever had. It will be interesting to see how this one ages. Try it if you get the opportunity. Borresteijn (7275) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2017
66cl Bottle sample at Potjepalooza, 2013 version. Finally get to rate this. Black colour, creamy beige head. Aroma of massive liquid sweet rye bread/pumpernickel, raisins, chocolate milk, roasted malts, some molasses. Flavour is sweet, pumpernickel, chocolate, some roast, hint of coffee, molasses, bittersweet finish. Full bodied. Very sweet, pretty much like a strong Baltic Porter. Good stuff though, albeit somewhat one-dimensional. ShivanDragon (4223) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2017

650ml bottle (thx, John P.!). Bottled 2016-09-26. Pours a very dark brown with a dark beige head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, roasted malt, molasses, grassy notes, slight booziness. Taste is similar. Very good! bwy (89) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2017
One of those stouts where you can taste EVERY flavor. Smooth, a little boozy, but rich. Very memorable.
