Oh this stuff is so freakin good. Appropriate to Imperial Stout, Royally Tasty. Appearance has a thick long lasting light brown head. Aroma is black malt, black olives, licorice, leather. Flavor's like nose, plus some sweet and bitter, those in perfectly balanced amounts. Body is so amazingly smooth. Only slight veiled hints of power. Wahoo!

500ml bottle. Snifter glass. Intense chocolate & underneath alcohol aromas as cap is removed. Pure black color. Brownish tan is creamy, slowly dissipated & leaves some lacing. Fresh aroma shows dark bitter cocoa & milk chocolate, rounded by herbal notes & ripe citric on the back. Slight dark fruits are also displayed to the nose. Creamy upfront with roasted & caramel notes as well as toffee & gentle alcohol. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous & creamy mouthfeel. Subtle notes of licorice & herbal bitterness with a point of cumin in the middle are joined by dark cocoa flavor linger into a sweet/bitter finish where resinous hop arises & leaves a dried sensation. Heat through the throat, some fruity & caramel hues on the aftertaste. Flavorful & gentle drinkability. Amazing balance at this masterpiece !! A great all-terrain beer that could be perfectly paired with Mexican fajitas – chili, chicken, onion & beans- or Panetone cake as well. Or simply alone for a long & paused drink, naturally. (Batch 512. BF10/2017).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Opaque, chocolately, very dark brown color, with a fine, creamy, dark tan head and heavy lacing.

Aroma: Meaty smoke mixed with dark roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and bitter cocoa.

Taste & Mouthfeel: The full body and creamy texture carry sweeter-than-expected flavors of vanilla, maple syrup, and steamed milk. The earthy, intense, bitterness in the finish counters the sweet flavors on the tongue, and tastes like coffee grounds. That meaty, smoky aroma comes through in the flavor profile as well, adding a savory character to the entire drink that helps to mesh the sweet and bitter.

Final Word: Highly recommended! This was a very complex and interesting brew, with an entertaining variety of flavors that, when taken together, feel distinctly like a breakfast meal (a carnivorous one) wrapped up in a beer. The meaty smoke, sweet, steamed milk and maple syrup, earthy, bitter coffee grounds, and cocoa all seem to have places on your breakfast table, right down to the vanilla flavored coffee creamer! The only reason anyone should approach this beer with caution is if you don’t have much of a tolerance for the bitterness in the finish. It is a particularly intense bitterness, as it feels like raw coffee grounds, so it has the potential of turning some drinkers away, or confusing them as the beer flip-flops between pancakes with syrup, and slugs of espresso. Anyone and everyone else, however, should jump at the chance to try this one!

From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Playing Pillars of Eternity. Very balanced, without anything standing out but everything well integrated and a pleasant alcoholic burn feeling that improves it. To drink with care as it goes up to the head really strong

375 ml bottle. Pours black, thin tan head, a little soapy lace. Bitter dark chocolate, earthy wood, stem, ends with a little bit of sweet lactose. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Overall a very solid stout, different but tasty.

500 ml bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. The head retention is pretty good, and there's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, dark fruit, and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some molasses, vanilla, and a bit of licorice flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's smooth, creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good imperial stout. Definitely worth picking up if you come across some. $9.99 a bottle.

Bottle: a tall 500mL dark brown bottle with a fantastically artistic label.

Appearance: pours dark in the glass - absolute black. Not a hint of highlights even around the edges. An incredibly solid tan head settles to a one-finger with excellent retention and lacing. About as good as it gets.

Aroma: roasted malts dominate with coffee and chocolate, some heavy yeasts and a touch of anise. A bit subdued however.

Taste: unlike a lot of Imperial Stouts, this one has no heavy fruit or spices - it is mainly based on roast malts. Coffee, cocoa and grain with anise, and some of that 10% ABV shines through.

Aftertaste: the flavours carry through nicely - there is some oily smoothness to the aftertaste.

Mouth feel: wonderfully thick and full thanks to an intense fine sediment that lingers throughout the profile.

Overall: one of the best (albeit the most expensive) beers I have had to date. The lack of fruit and spice has not denied it complexity, but rather the intensity and focus on roast malts, molasses, anise and chocolate has produced a mouth-wateringly amazing stout.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Motor oil with a reddish-brown fringe in the right light.
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, earth, bread,
Taste: Sweet, dark malt, sweet-ripened dates
Mouthfeel: midway between effervescent and foamy.
Overall: Great. Maybe a bit too sweet for what I want in my Imperials, but I really do like it a lot.

Acids and tannins are both mid-level. I feel both dryer out on my taste buds, and wet in the rest of my mouth as I salivate. Pretty sure the west coast IPA I had before this did some damage to tonights palate, so I’m getting more bitterness than is probably here.

A-almost black with a tan head that quickly leaves to form a small ring around the top

S-rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, roasted coffee,

T-taste is very good, large roasted malt backbone with coffee, chocolate, bit of molasses, caramel, and maybe some dark fruits mixed in there.

M-very nice full body, light carbonation, dry roasted finish

Overall I really like this beer, great tasting and a nice full body makes it an above average IS

I'm definitely in the mood for this its cold as could be tonight and thought I crack this by the fire and it pours a dark black as night hue with a one finger khaki head that disappears as soon as u blink and leaves a nice rim of lacing too,the smell is dark fruits,roasted malts,booze,charcoal and dark chocolate,the mouthfeel is full bodied with above moderate carbonation and the taste is something else just what I was looking for tonight it's dark chocolate,roasted malts,dark fruits,a touch of milky coffee and finished with a solid herbal bitterness that puts everything into order and overall I love it and I know they boiled it for six hours but man for a beer of high ABV it's nowhere to be found and this is such a easy drinker border lining on greatness with a few adjustments just what I was up for cheers.

A very solid stout. It is halfway between the strong unsweet stouts with sometimes tobacco aromas and the chocolate/coffee classic sweet stouts. There is chocolate in the beer, but you feel mostly the coffee/roasted aromas, with a hint of liquorish. It is not as drinkable as other classic stouts as say, from Omnipollo, Samuel Smith, or Lost Abbey for example, but it is quite good. However it's so rare I'm not sure it's worth seeking it out for outrageous prices.
