Caution: Extreme gushing! About ¾ of the bottle ended up in the sink! The beer starts malty-fresh, hints of sourness, plums, molasses. Very deep and fruity. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, nice thick maltiness, nice dried red fruits, caramel, quite dry, intense. Great!

Bottle from a friend. White flakes in the beer, gushing alert! Dark brown colour, sour infected nose along with some roastiness. Vinegar. Bad infected bottle, it’s a pity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The ’black hand’, with a thick and moussy, sticky head and very dark mahogany colour, practically black. Aroma of toffee, coffee grounds, candied dates, old ’jenever’, dried plums, raisins, figs, caramel and - unfortunately - some red cabbage (DMS). Some dark fruits in the mouth on a thick chocolatey and nutty malt base, gin-like warming alcohol and a frim peppery hop bitterness in the finish, long and dry. Not bad at all but I preferred their Podge.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great body and great foam..Mango is more in the aroma than in the taste. The taste now is a classic imperial stout with its bitterness,maybe from dark chocolate, combined with the sweetness of mango.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has very rich, deep and intense aroma. The are a notes of port wine, dark malts, a bit of brandy and a bit of cherry. It’s completely dark, non-transparent, with small head. In taste it’s coffee sour but the coffee bitterness is endless in aftertaste. It’s quite strongly carbonated and drinkable for a imperial stout. Has rather small body but alcohol is covered and hidden completely.

33 CL bottle had been chilled for a couple of hours. When opened it gushed like a fountain. I could only retrieve some from the copious foam. Colour : charcoal black. For a supposedly high ABV stout the taste was rather ordinary. I don’t know what else to say: I’m feeling generous with the scoring. Do not get your wallet out for this one.
