Bottle shared with the husband. Very dark brown in color, the head fades away fairly quickly. Very boozy aroma, milk and dark chocolate, espresso beans. Taste: Wow. Sweet, sweet sticky malts that manage not to be cloying, tart cherries, and then a surprising punch of hops.

Something like a savory chocolate stout. Nice coffee and alcohol aftertaste, perhaps not enough going on in the foreground.

erikaraeb (27) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Pretty standard imperial brown. Flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate. Not much complexity to start or finish. Drinkable and nice, but nothing to rave about in my personal opinion

jfb (6133) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
(bottle) deepest brown colour with a very small beige head. aroma of brown sugar, bran flakes and cherry schnaps, with some notes of roasted malts, bread dough and floral hops. flavour is mostly toasted malts, heavy liquorce and caramel, with a hint of tobacco, some chocolate-covered raisins and a touch of ethanol in the light roasted-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

PabloZab (1437) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 05.02.2021). Bottled on 05.02.2016, 9% ABV. Completely black with large, light-brown head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee first, then it is intense roasty. Mega roasty in taste, chocolate and coffee also with subtle sour in aftertaste. Bitterness is roasty, long and agressive but the beer is smooth with nice sweetness at the finish. Realy good, complex and good balanced RIS with very good hidden alcohol that only warms a bit inside.

butelka. czarne, gruby krążek beżowej piany, śliczne koronkowanie. w aromacie czekolada, kakao, drewno, słody palone, po ogrzaniu wyraźny alkohol. w smaku subtelnie słodkie na starcie, gorzkie na finiszu, na języku wyraźna spalenizna. długo utrzymuje się na podniebieniu. nasycenie niziutkie. kernel znowu świetnie
