zimbo (983) - SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2018
A complete and well balanced beer of coffee, spice, warmth and an almost furriness. Full and rounded but not stupidly extreme either. Very good.

@ Beerlovers Bar Nice aroma. Taste is a tad sweet with chocolate and coffee. Didn't really get the vanilla and cinnamon. Slick mouthfeel. Not thick enough.

Pustelnik1 (75) - Nieuwegein, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
A: Gorzka czekolada, bombonierka, wanilia, kakao S: kolejno - głęboka czekolada, kakao, karmel, lekka słodycz, kawa i paloność. Samych papryczek nie ma w smaku i aromacie, są obecne jako lekka pikantność w posmaku, niezbyt zalegająca. Gładkie i kremowe, średnia goryczka, oleiste ciało.

Mpuntmuts (370) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2017
Pitch black pour. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, Mexican spices. Medium sweet and medium bitter with a lovely chili warming aftertaste in the back of the throat. Over medium body with soft Co2. Great crafted beer.

sharky2kx (32) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Brown to black pour. Off white to tan head that sticks around. Nose is cakey, spicy, chocolaty and smooth. Coffee flavours and nuts with slight vanilla. Palate is moderate to full with slight wateriness. Flavours are very cakey, with the cinnamon and chili taking centre stage. Icing sugar, more cake, chocolate, mocha. Well hidden alcohol. The head is still hanging around and the carbonation chase is immense. This is a massive and unrefined beer. With some time in the cellar this could be exceptional.

imdownthepub (15525) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Draught at Tilt, Birmingham. Black with tan head. This is a really rich, roasty, malty beer, there is a sweetish vanilla character along with cocoa, chocolate cake. Full on the palate with a hint of heat. A cor blimey beer.

4.5
kanaclane (558) - - DEC 13, 2017
Nez: Gâteau chocolat noir sortant du four, cannelle, boisé Bouche: Chocolat noir, vanille, cannelle, boisée, pointe d'agrumes, épicée, sirupeuse Un Impé Stout, chaleureux par son taux d'alcool mais surtout par ses épices, de toute beauté. Une attaque nasale à faire baver avec cette odeur de gâteau au chocolat encore fondant sortant tout juste du four avec une pointe épicée notamment de cannelle. Ce qui était présent, au nez, arrive en bouche avec les papilles qui sautent partout et qui en redemandent. Ce tout est accompagné d'une pointe d'agrumes avec un final sur les épices (poivre, piment) et une pointe vanillée qui font frétiller une nouvelle fois les papilles.
