My perfect beer. Big sweet, and dark. Pours pitch black with a small head. No light gets through this. Had it twice, the original batch after it had been aged a couple years and the more recent batch, only a couple months old. The younger batch was much more "wild" with the alcohol being more noticable than in the original batch with some age on it...

Absolutnie czarne z drobinkami chmielu na dnie. Piany w zasadzie brak, ale moc robi swoje dlatego nie ma się co dziwić. W aromacie kawa, czekolada i mocno alkoholowe cherry. Od razu czuć alkohol i ciało, którego jest cała masa. Wspomniany alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk. Czekoladowo kawowy smak z dodatkiem wiśni i rodzynek. Wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego. Goryczka też konkret.

as (161) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JUL 23, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 0,33 l bottle from Craft Beer Store in Hamburg, Germany. 15.2% ABV. The 1000th particular beer I tried in my life. Opaque, deep black color with a small brownish head. Intensive bitter / alcoholic kick right from the start. Then the usual aromas for the style jump in - roasted malts, coffee (lots of it) dark chocolate, raisins. The aftertaste then becomes dry and bitter again. Beautiful drinking experience, even though it’s a bit too robust (and yeah, overpriced) for my taste.

Bottle @ bready, thanks vaiz! Aroma is huge liquorice, coffee, roast, burned molasses. Flavour is very roasty liquorice molasses coffee madness, hugely bitter and roasty yet sweet at the same time. Quite some alcohol in the finish. Long lingering roasty liquorice. Hefty but very nice.

Imperial stout d’autore! Colore nero soia ed schiuma inesistente. Al naso molto complessa con note di soia, caffè, cioccolato, liquore, radici e spezie. In bocca equilibrata tra dolcezza, amarezza ed alcolicità. Nel palato una splosione di sapori concentrati in un corpo denso e grasso che finisce in una lunga e persistente aromaticità retronasale. Si tratta di una birra magnifica ma dificile da bere. Comunque un capolaboro!

37,5cl bottle at Gainsbar in Kortrijk - Belgium. Pours dark dark. Fantastic aroma! Shouldn’t characterize this beer with denominations, it’s one of a kind! Reminds me of some very old matured beers I tasted years back. Hell yeh!

Smells like a light engine oil which is a hint of what is to come. A dark mixture of bitter chocolate & coffee with a sweet taste that is well balanced with some bitter hops. The long woody finish is extremely pleasant. Given this is a blend of three beers this a perfectly balanced beer. Rated by BrewTom
