johndoughty (5090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Black with a medium head. Chocolate and coffee merge to create a wonderful flavour/ Gently sweet and full bodied yet not overpowering. Dangerously easy to drink.Highly recommended.

CacheManyHose (622) - HONG KONG - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft, drank at home after SZ and yoga with Mummers. Medium thick opaque brown-black pour, not much tan head. Smells of heavy coffee, inky herbalness, sweet bready raisin bread and light spicy rye, vanilla bean, brown sugar, faint maple syrup, some booze (though hidden well - 11%!). Taste is similar, though more burnt/acidic and grassy/herbal bitterness, notes of chocolate and plum/dark druit and graham cracker. Body is very oily but smooth, lightly chewy and sweet middle, burnt acidic finish. Nice huge imperial stout with plenty of sticky vanilla sweetness and herbal coffee bitterness to balance. Perhaps a touch too sweet for my personal taste but well done.

weordie (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Pours black with a thin tan head. The aroma is all roasted coffee with a hint of chocolate breaking through. Loads of coffee in the flavour, subtle hints of vanilla and then a big coffee bitterness.

330 ml bottle from Bieropholie, shared with asheft. Deep brown-black with a tan rim. Strong "raw" coffee, kinda green, light vanilla, dark chocolate, a touch briney, medium+ body, very low carbonation, rich coffee, vanilla, chocolate, a little briney in flavor as well, black licorice, fairly dry, moderate-ish bitterness, nice rich finish. Pretty solid. Might be a bit old.

martjoobolut (3380) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle (from beer gonzo). Pours dakr brown with brownish head. The head stays for some moments. Aroma is liquid chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, nuts. Flavor is sweet and bitter, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa, some salty licorice, vanilla, some booze. Finish is sweet chocolate with hop bitterness and some booze. Drinkability is really good. Overall: woah, fantastic brew. Feels like liquid boozy chocolate cake and Im a big fan of boozy chocolate cakes...

Satyroneto (331) - BRAZIL - JUN 2, 2016
Cor marrom escuro quase negro com sedimentos no fundo do copo; espuma bege de baixas formação e persistência, praticamente sem lacing. Aroma em primeiro plano de café expresso e no segundo plano álcool, chocolate e leve baunilha; com o aumento da temperatura tornam-se mais intensas as notas adocicadas de chocolate e baunilha e notas de álcool, sempre com a presença de torrado do café. Sabor inicial doce de chocolate e baunilha com um final alcoólico e torrado remetendo ao café espresso; retrogosto persistente, alcoólico que aquece a boca e de torrado. Corpo sedoso, levemente licoroso e de baixa carbonatação. Boa drinkability para uma imperial stout.
