Bar. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Sweet and roasted aroma of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and freshgrinded coffee. Sweet and roasted flavour of caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, freshgrinded coffee and hops with notes of alcohol. Roasted and warming alcoholic finish. ianwelby (1385) - SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Black beer, thin head, rich chocolatey malt aroma. Flavour is sweet but not sickly. Rich chocolate, tangy fruit, a dash of coffee. It’s rich and goes down far, far too easily for its strength. I could go a bit more bitterness but it’s still a great beer. Maarten1993 (1274) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Drank 11-5-16 while writing in my diary (after squashing with Marijn and terrache chellings after the last ’Applied Ethics’ lecture). Very rich stout. Thick, lots of taste. Complex. A bit metally heavy alcohol smell, but taste is well-balanced, also chocolate. kustie (1183) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2016

Oily, pitch black pour with a chocolate brown head. Sweet, malty aroma with hot chocolate and some coffee and brown sugar. Slight roastiness. Taste is surprisingly sweet, very chocolatey with a slightly hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is very slick and oily with slight carbonation. Overall I really like this, it’s not that intense in the coffee and roastiness as one might expect but still really nice. Some might find the sweetness offputting though. beerplace (1691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016

0.375 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before November 2019. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty and slightly fruity aroma of coffee powder, dark chocolate, cocoa and red berries. Sweet, malty, slightly roasty and a little fruity taste of milk coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, some vanilla and hints of red berries, followed by a medium long, medium roasty-bitter finish. Full body, very creamy and viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great dessert beer! ramboraffe (2254) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2016
On tap at Kaschk, Berlin. Black with thin tanned head. Coffee, espresso, bitter chocolate, vanilla (?) and roasted malt. Big toasted body with light warming alcohol. The bitter coffee almost gets a sour touch. Dry with medium bitterness and low carbonation. Nice! JulioP (3) - Parla, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2016 does not count
Descomunal imperial stout, con un delicioso olor a café. Sin embargo es sedosa y muy bebible. Una de las grandes de una marca que nunca defrauda.
