Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Starts intense malty, strong, roasty, not too dry. Modest bitter background. Finish warming-malty, soft, modest sweet. Very well balanced. Great imperial stout.

sebletitje (7027) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2011
18cl bottle, #1775/2040 from DeMolen beer shop. Brune foncée, dorée et moka, aspect huileux collant sur le verre. Arôme de bourbon et Bordeaux laissant des notes fruitées de vin avec en retrait une bonne note de malt. En bouche; bière épaisse, malt avec une présence fruité allant sur un vin cuit laissant des notes fraîches de Bordeaux ainsi une vaille de Bourbon, le tout se mélangeant avec un profile boisé, chocolat, grillé. Agréable de voir comment le mélange des deux laisse ample place à l’un comme l’autre pour briller et offrir du tout bon pour le palais. Un régal.
