Pitch black with a very dark tan head. Head disappeared quickly. Smell is mostly vanilla and tonka, no cinnamon for me. Taste is the same, with some bitterness and toasty character. Feel is surprisingly thin. A bit too carbonated for me I think. Good but not great. Really wish the cinnamon was more present.

Poured from a can at fridge temp. Pours black as night and has very little head. The nose is vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malts, and chocolate.

The taste is super smooth. Again, nice layers of vanilla and cinnamon. Nice malt presence. Toffee, maple, and a slight roasty note. Mouthfeel is super thick and creamy. Great stout.

Can: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with some cinnamon notes and residual sausage notes. Taste is also a mix of sweet black chocolate notes with some cinnamon notes and some residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Well brewed imperial stout with a nice mix of cocoa nibs and cinnamon.

De Labirratorium. En copa Teku. Con galletas Tostarica. Jugando a Fortnite. Imperial stout de perfil chocolatoso y a regaliz, con cierto toque a canela, en la que el alcohol se nota sin molestar, resultando incluso más fácil de beber de lo recomendable por su abv

L: Pitch-black, chocolate-brown, 1 finger head that dissipates rather quickly. Has excellent lacing, the look invites one to drink it.
S: Cinnamon buns, chocolate, hint of vanilla-coffee, licorice, rum, christmas spices, something that can't but my 'nose' quite on, probably the tonka beans.
T: Cinnamon, dark malts (chocolate, caramel, black bread, ..), touch of cardemon.
F: Heavy/full bodied, bitter-sweet with a malty aftertaste. Medium carbonation, with some occasional presence of warming alcohol.
O: Very good imperial stout, although a bit too sweet for me.

Pours a deep black color with a small top off cappuccino colored head that dissolves quickly.
Aroma is milk-chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, caramel ,cocoa and coconut.
The taste is sweet and malty at the start with strong notes of cinnamon, coffee and cocoa in the flavour. The finish is slightly bitter allong with strong roasted notes in the background allong with the cinnamon notes.
I think the flavours here is a risky path, but the managed to ballance them excellent.
Long and strong aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is creamy and oily with a medium carbonation and a full body.
This was impressive stuff.

Pours a pitch-black coloration with a small, creamy, mocha-colored head. Smells of roasted, caramel malt and strong cinnamon and tonka notes, as well as lighter vanilla, milk chocolate and just a hint of licorice. Taste follows the nose, with an excellent balance of roasted, caramel malt, strong notes of cinnamon and tonka, lighter notes of vanilla and milk chocolate and just a hint of dark fruit, licorice and molasses. Finishes bittersweet, with a light bitterness and some roasted malt, cinnamon and tonka lingering in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel with a rich body and light/medium carbonation.

While this may be just a tad too sweet and boozy for my personal taste, it's still a rather well-balanced, rich and complex Imperial Stout that brings out all the different additives nicely without them getting into each others way too much, except perhaps for the cinnamon, which isn't really too overpowering either though. The more roasty and bitter notes really help balancing out the sweeter aspects of this all in all, making for a rather enjoyable brew.

With a heavy presence of tonka beans backed up by vanilla and cinnamon, this imperial stout delivers a heavy boost to my evening. Nice mouthfeel and balanced roastiness. Not quite sweet for a dessert s
Imperial stout
That's a good one.

Bottle at The Situation, served in a trappist glass. Pours a black colour, tiny head with almost no retention, no lacing.
Aroma, well, label reads it has coffee beans, vanilla and cinnamon, but I smell mostly coconut. The rest comes later, alongside some chocolate and dried fruits.
Full body, sticky texture, no carbonation. Sweet finish.
Taste follows the aroma, first coconut and later all the rest.
