1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 4/20
[On-tap at The Friendly Spot] I wasn’t going to pay the high price for this beer, but the person I was with did, so I tried some of his. After having tried it, I am extremely glad I didn’t order it. An odd solvent-like (similar to acetone, but slightly different) aroma is very prevalent when cold, but it faded as it warmed. Other than that, this beer is completely dominated by raisin, molasses, and alcohol. A little green pepper, chocolate, and day-old coffee were also in there. Good, thick mouthfeel with a long finish (more chocolate here). What a sweet, boozy mess. Incredible that this is rated so highly, because I found it to be a nearly undrinkable trainwreck.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dit is toch echt wel een geweldige stout zeg. Het bier is eigenlijk helemaal niet zo bitter als ik had verwacht. Het is eigenlijk meer zoet wat het bier ondanks zijn hoge percentage goed doet wegdrinken.
Mooi zwart bier met een minimale schuimkraag zoals je van een stout mag verwachten.
Fijne aroma’s van kersen, koffie en een hint van chocolade.
Smaken van kersen en chocolade.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, faint tan head. Toasted malts and black roasted olive aroma. Complex liquorous sweetness, well balanced by the right bitterness. Toastiness is not exaggerated, well hidden as the alcohol. Full bodied, thin carbonation, persistent mouthfeel.
