Amazing beer. Had on tap at Jester king and this killed all of their offerings. Aroma is blend of coffee Imp stout and hint of old ale in stone fruits and vinous-ness. Appearance is BLACK with a nice tan big head which really brings the aromas right to your nasal doorstep. Taste is nose but the coffee bitterness swaps places with the old ale influences making it a kind of old ale Imp stout with hints of coffee. Palate is thick and wonderful. A great beer.

Flaska från To Øl webshop, 3 år gammal. Svart med tjusigt mörkbrunt, krämigt skum. Fortfarande stor kaffeton kvar i aromen med kallpress, gröna kaffebönor, lite grön paprika-ton, toffee och choklad. Större, rund och len kropp. Ganska stor sockersötma i smaken med kandisocker, honung, kola, kaffesirap, lite lakrits kola och svarta vinbär. En lätt bitter avslutning med låg beska. Gott, men kanske lite väl åt det söta hållet för min del.

Wygląd: Czarne, dodatkowo POTĘŻNA, brązowa i trwała piana.
Aromat: Kawa zdecydowanie, czekolada jest też, sos sojowy i taka dosyć dziwna nuta, jakby chloru? Może to mineralność, bo piwo jest srogo nasycoe
Smak: Słodkie, dodatkowo słodycz chmielowa jakby. W posmaku kawa, słodka czekolada, karmel, owoce. (btw słodkie to jest w ciul.). No miesza się kawa, z czekoladą, estrami, chmielem (no i alkiem też), naprawdę przyjemne. Mega kompleksowe.
Odczucie: Słoooodko, średnio wysycone jednak, ale nalewane też było agresywnie, solidna, przyjemna goryczka kontruje słodycz. Gładkie, te płatki też czuć.
Podsumowanie: Aromat nie bardzo, już normalnie się tu załamywałem, ale w smaku - super. Bardzo kompleksowe, słodkie, gorzkie, owocowe, kawowe, czekoladowe. Wszystko co potrzeba. Gładkie, wygląd, jak na RISa no ot to jest odjazd. Polecam

A very good stout. Aroma is strange and pine like, but the palate is coffee and sugar, incredibly sweet. The sugar could be lowered by ageing, so we'll see. I paired this with handmade salted crisps, which brought out the best of this massive beast.

Black with a big, thick cocoa head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, mild hints of coffee and alcohol. A lot sweeter than I expected it to be, it is like coffee but more of a latte type than an americano, very sweet. Nice bitterness too.

Keg at the Star and Garter, Bromley. Black pour with a beige head. Aromas of dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, chocolate raisin, cocoa. Oodles of dark roast coffee in the flavour backed up by some dark berries, chocolate, cola. Long alcohol burn. Lovely stuff.

Krótko mówiąc: wyśmienite piwo. Bierzcie i pijcie to wszyscy, bo warto. Ciemnobrunatne, nieprzejrzyste o mizernej, drobnopęcherzykowej pianie. Aromat słodkawy i lekko kawowy, może również lekki aromat kwasu chlebowego. Smak... mógłbym to piwo pić codziennie - czekolada deserowa, kawa, przyjemna słodycz, długi, palony posmak... Dość pełne i cieliste. Polecam każdemu fanowi jakiegokolwiek ciemnego piwa.

Bottle. Pitch black beer with average, creamy, beige head. Aroma of strong coffee, espresso, coffee beans, oats, roasted malts and milk chocolate. Taste is heavy- sweet and medium bitter, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, sugar, espresso, coffee beans, light earthy, roasty, with notes of licorice. Bitter roasted coffee finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. Really good imperial stout, complex and interesting, but a bit too sugary, beansy and not as intense as expected.

Flaska 37.5 cl. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Tjock doft av mörk choklad och kaffe. Choklad och kaffe i smaken.

Rewelacja. Bardzo słodki, jednocześnie gorzki. Kawowy, delikatny piernik. Pite w temperaturze pokojowej, znacznie lepsze niż ta sama warka pita pół roku temu schłodzona (było znacznie słodsze). Świetne doznania płynące z tego piwa. Czuć że ma się do czynienia z piwem klasy światowej

oobawa (1748) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Almost undrinkably sweet, with a massive dose of sugary dark chocolate mixed with maraschino cherry and raisins, backed up by an assertive, acidic coffee backbone and a long bitter finish. Great nose, loads of mocha and roast, and the pour is lovely, a deep dark brown with a moderate beige head and ample lacing. Texture is thin and watery, but the alcohol is well-hidden, at least. But the sweetness is overbearing; the cola-like middle leads to a cloy back end, only escalating as it warms. Not for me.
