vincentvega72 (428) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Donkerbruin (bijna zwart) bier met dik mokkakleurig schuim (lijkt wel chocolademousse) die langzaamaan inzakt tot een fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van chocolade, koffie, lichte caramel en een hint vanille. Subtiel licht bittere afdronk. Vol en romig in de mond met een klein zoetje. Perfect gebalanceerd bier. Topper !!

Mesjasz (1085) - Lodz, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Aromat niszczy czekoladą, taką mocno paloną i gorzką, z jebitną ilością kakao. Mamy fajnie wpisywany w to karmel, toffi oraz nuty kawy. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekko gorzki i minimalnie słodki. W smaku jest czekolada, kawa, karmel, nutka alkoholu. Posmak dosyć goryczkowy w stylu pestkowo kawowym. Ciało dosyć wysokie, ale mogłoby być lepsze, wysycenie niskie do średniego, faktura lekko oleista, ale jednak bliżej wody

Black, great brown head. Aroma: cocoa, caramel, vanilla, coffee, some fruity notes. Heavy sweetness, medium body, medium bitterness. Sweet malty profile with harsh roasty finish. Bit alcoholic. Oily texture. 7 months after bottling, but it should wait longer.

Nose is dark and roasty wiTh licorice and soy sauce softer molasses. Definitely an imperial dry stout. Pours black wiTh a frothy tan head. Flavor is much the same. Dark roasty dry molasses licorice soy sauce earthy. Smooth and tasty with warming alcohol in the finish.

Black with a nice dark mocha head. Aroma has lots of coffee, bitter chocolate, roast, ash, cocoa butter, and some dark berries. Taste is roast, coffee, bitter chocolate, ash, burnt, full but not sweet. Palate very roasty, full but not sweet. It’s very much an English stout, in the sense that if you cut it with equal amount carbonated water you’d just get a regular (and very good) dry stout. Very nice beer.
