Predomina el chocolate en nariz, más cafetosa en boca, con final bastante seco. Equilibrada y cremosa, nada dulce y con moderado alcohol para una imperial stout. Con buena relación calidad / precio. BOTTLE.. BB 09/03/2018. sam_uk93 (78) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Pours very dark with hint of red. Light tan head. Aroma is sweet fruit, hint of cinnamon, lemon. Taste is initially fairly sweet, leading to a smokey spiced fruit, finishing with a lovely bitterness that lingers. Medium full bodied, light carbonation. Great stuff! basjansen14 (475) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017

Pours dark brown, golden tinge, tan head. Malty caramel and noticeable hops on nose; fruity plum and peach aroma, fermented. Catastrophic burnt sugar and burnt caramel flavour. A bit dry and one-dimensional. Bad batch? jjsint (3600) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2017
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Dark brown, slightly translucent with a ring of tan head. Aroma is of liquorice, weak coffee, plums, with a hint of cocoa beans. Salty, smoky taste with yeast extract, espresso, bitter chocolate. Very bitter finish. Nicely carbonated. Unfortunately it’s got a heavily astringent aftertaste with horehound and BlackJack chewing gum. Interesting stuff.

Pointed out dark brown instead of black. 38 SRM.
Nose is sweet and fruity. Aroma of ripe dark fruity preserves and jams. Grape jelly sweet and fruity. Caramel and treacle with burnt or scorched sugar aromas.
Mouthfeel is carbonated carbon. Palate has dark wheat toast, roasted barley. Hops are burnt twigs, with a clean woody bitter flavor.
Overall, for me this comes across like a black IPA.
Warming in the end. g_georgiou (609) - CYPRUS - JUL 13, 2017
Dark brown body with a medium brown head. Aroma is malty, caramel, light vanilla, chocolate. Taste is sweet and low bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Bitter finish. lokis333 (617) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 5, 2017
Very deep black color with small brown foam. Aromas, malty of smokey and roasted cocoa and dark chocolate as well as light booze touch. Palate, full body, smooth rich creamy texture leaving lightly boozy cocoa finish. Taste, bittersweet of malts, chocolate, cocoa with noticeable warming boozy touch. Overall, not bad. Aromas could be somewhat stronger, palate is fantastic taste not bad either. Worth a try. Villyzzz (462) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2017
