ClubGonzo (4023) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Jet black body, small light beige head. Nose is alcohol, wood, leather, licorice, hints of coffee and ashes. Smooth. Taste is leather, licorice, tar, alcohol, hints of coffee and wood with some sour notes of dark berries in the back. Soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. A nice imperial with a well-cloaked alcohol content, but which nevertheless somehow fails to reach the top rungs of my ladder.

MalcolmTucker (740) - SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle. Almost black with a thin tan head. Strong aroma of chocolate, liquorice and whisky booze. Flavour is more of the same with a good bitter finish. Quite fizzy for an imp stout. Good but had better from De Molen.

GothGargoyle (1201) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black with a large chocolate brown head that leaves behind a lot of lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dates, rum. Very creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, warming finish. Taste is chocolate, oak, coffee, vanilla, fig, liquorice. Very nice, has the slightest touch of harshness in the throat as it goes down, this should mellow out with age.
