Pours an opaque black with a small brown soapy head that goes into a ring and has good legs up the glass. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, alcohol vanilla, wood, light fruity aromas... Very rich and complex. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, alcohol and a nicely balanced alcohol warmth is present as well. Light cocoa bitterness blends well with the alcohol and roasted grains... Overall this is a very pleasant ris to drink. It’s almost sessionable for its style.

Pours a black with tan head. Aroma is oak, coffee caramel. Not to thick for 10% and a smooth drink. A great winter sipper.

33cl bottle #1728 after work at ’t Klooster, Delft. Poured pitch black with a short lasting brown head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, complex aroma. Some roast and coffee. Caramel and toffew aswell. Flavour is incredibly smooth and well balanced. Like a good whiskey. Pretty sweet and moderate bitter. Soft silky texture with a long chocolatey finish. Great!

Gerbeer (1675) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
330 ml bottle. Number 4619 actually. Crappy soft wax seal - am I the only one that hates digging around these things? Pours black with light tan head. Aromas of liquorice, wood, port alcohol, and wet roasted malts. Rich flavors of vanilla/oak, dark chocolate, old brandy, and heavily roasted malts. Hot. Wunderbar.

angel77 (787) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa beni bar. botella numero 2465. Mayo de 2013. Alucinante imperial stout con sabores quemados y gran presencia de madera empapada en cognac. Sus 10 vol se notan bastante fácil dando sensaciones de licor cuando la cerveza va calentando. cuerpo medio - alto con cierta densidad. Color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura no muy persistente. Grandisima cerveza.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Large doses of deep dark fruits, bitter chocolate, some phenolic notes, fumes, light smoke, and berries. Black, thin lace. Harsh bitter chocolate with berries in initial / goes lighter and buttery in mid / finish is smooth but a bit thin. Medium-heavy body. Great palate: the flavors float gently around the tongue. Heavy stuff at first, then it lightens up, and finally lands like a butterfly. Wow!
