500ml bottle, at the April Fools Day DC Ratebeer tasting. Poured a nearly pitch black brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma was roasted coffee, malts. Bitter chocolate, coffee. Tasty. Terminus (3741) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2017
Bottle-Pours almost pitch black with no legs and no lacing with a small lite tan head Nose is lots of coca, anise and lite sweet chocolate. I expected more coffee yet this maybe a tad on the old side. Body is full yet restrained but not in a bad way. Finish is fairly long with lots of dark chocolate and burnt notes. Not an overly complex impy stout but a decent one. I would like to try this more fresh and it would probably have more coffee flavors.

500ml bottle. Coffee aroma with notes chocolate, roasted malt and some berry fruitiness. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with roasted malt and chocolate flavors that also has a full body and creamy mouthfeel. Finishes dry with roasty coffee and a little bit of berry sweetness with coffee lingering on the palate. Good, but has a lot of coffee for my tastes. solidfunk (9786) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2017
