bursprak (3062) - Aarhus, - JUN 1, 2014
Tap @ Fairbar. Pitch black pour with a minimal tan head. Nose has some dark chocolate, light soy sauce, burnt malts and light vanilla. Taste is nicely balanced with some sweet vanilla, dark bitter chocolate and light ash. Pretty tasty!

ardeo (365) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle 33 ’best before 11 jan 2027’ !!! Aspect : noire à mousse brune abondante, persistante et à belles dentelles. Nez : d’une grande ’fraîcheur’ avec des effluves de caramel, d’herbes (les houblons?), de réglisse puis le café et les fruits noirs. Bouche : dès l’entrée en bouche, l’amertume intervient magnifiquement conjointement aux saveurs de café, de chocolat, de l’alcool bien sûr (genre porto ou vin corsé), du boisé, du rôti. Quelle bière ! A consommer avec modération : pas plus d’une par jour ! :-)))

nihtila (3511) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2017
Keg at Salt Horse. Pours oily black, dark brown head. Nose is big roast, tar, light liqorice, coffee, bitterish. Tastes huge bitter roast - this is not for the ones expecting sugary sweet IS. There is sweetness as well though, just bitter roast fronted, cocoa, caramel, coffee. First I thought its too roasty and bitter but its in fact nice to have sth like this after a while. Excellent heavily hopped and roasted IS.

Prime stout for those whom enjoy some bitterness in them. Black coffee and dry smoke with a lingering aftertaste, but nothing well outside whats expected of a craft stout.

Very dark imperial stout with an aroma of black, bitter coffee and resin. Slight carbonation. "Does not hide its alcohol well" per this site’s well-loved phrases.

BlazerT (1050) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Pitch black with light to moderate, thick, light brown head. Good head retention and poor lacing. Roasted as hell, dark chocolate, coffee balanced with milky, lactose sweetness. Taste id heavy sweet and light heavy bitter - very long, slightly increasing. ABV is perfectly hidden. Medium to full body, thick texture, soft carbonation. In overall very roasty and bitter. Not my favorite type of imperial stout, but all in all good one.

ianwelby (1328) - SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Opaque black beer, bubbly brown head. Aroma of chocolate and earthy malt. Flavour has a proper hit, where a lot of these rich, imperial stouts manage to hide it. Not especially alcohol-tasting, just a big hit. Bitter, earthy malt. Dark chocolate. Liquorice. . An almost charcoal-y aftertaste. It probably isn’t my favourite imperial stout, but it’s a big hitter by any measure and while I might not rush back for more I certainly wouldn’t turn my nose up at it.

gr_pa (631) - siemianowice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Looks fenomenal; black with big, steady dark brown head. Aroma: sweet chocolate, carakel, roast. Full body, medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Chocolate flavour dominated by roastiness. Long ashy finish, although perfectly hidden alcohol.

pjotrapostou (173) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Na pierwszym planie dość owocowe - winogrona, czerwone owoce, lekko kwaśne. Później wychodzi bardzo intensywna goryczka, paloność, słodowość. Bardzo intensywne i nietypowe, ciekawe piwo.

karpik (1088) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Lots of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate in nose. Pours pitch black with brown head. Taste is sweet with chocolate and coffee, some licorice in the background. Finish is medium to high bitter, bit sour from roasted malts, full body, soft carbonation. Overall very good, very roasty.
