77ships (4165) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Pitch black, some dark mocha head on the sides. Smell is pretty much pure peat and heavily smoked mocha. Taste is sweet mocha, heavy peat, very earthly, charcoal, heavy smoked, bitter roast. Sticky body. Good stuff - as usual this kind of aging kind of obliterates the difference between different imperial stout.

jmgreenuk (4695) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
Draft at Borefts. Black "crude oil" pour. Amazing smoky spicy aroma which really sets things up nicely. A massively rich peaty flavour with loads of roasted malt and caramel. A really huge beer that needs to be served warm, shared and drunk in small quantities.

dEnk (3836) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle @ de molen. Aroma is huge whiskey, big peat, roasty notes. Flavour is again huge whiskey, roasty laurel, big malts, liquorice and more. Awesome.

brokensail (11106) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Black pour with an off-white head. Very smokey nose with a strong chlorine aroma. A bit watery, actually. Lots of roasted malt, a bit of oak, and some soap notes. The flavor is smokey, meaty, and soapy with some definite chlorine notes. Tons of roasted malt, some oak, and a light booziness. Not enjoyable at all.

kraddel (3483) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
@ bbf 12, my first consumption, as firtst costumor, just to say how much i expected from this one.. rather very dissapointing, it tastes VERY peated, almost nothing else. if they used another beer than hel en verdoemenis , i wouldn(’t have tasted it... drinkable but dissapointing...

Iphonephan (3403) - McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
On tap at Borefts beer festival, de Molen, day two. Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Shares many of the traits of the regular Hel & Verdoemenis but somewhat less balanced.
