Bottle. Cork flew from bottle. Black with massive brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, heavy cream, caramel, nuts and marshmallow. Flavor of tobacco, dry roasted chocolate, cream and milk. Reminds me of dogwood youngbloods impy porter. Smooth, smokey finish

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2010 1 Pint 9.4 fl. oz. Brewed 17/18 Feb. 2009 - Bottled 20 March 2009. Bottle number 863. Consumed 19 April 2010. Very happy to have found this bottle. Poured a thick & ominous, oily black/brown with no head at all... looked like motor oil. Aroma: bitter dark chocolate, espresso, booze, roasted & burnt malts, coca beans, cough syrup... maybe some oak. Taste: bitter dark chocolate & espresso, roasted malts, tobacco, booze... big flavors. Long bitter finish. Thick mouth feel. No carbonation... very surprised as it works without it. I have never seen so much sediment in a bottle... all at the bottom and very thick. Overall excellent: a huge Imperial Stout... bold but nuanced. I am glad I tried this... but if I am able to get another bottle, I think I would cellar it for 7-10 years and open it on a cold night.

JulienHuxley (3851) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Bottle 180ml. Dark coffee brown body with a brown ring. Aroma is mocha and honey. Also, I get some cherries and vodka-like aroma. Average. Taste totally compensates for it. At first, there is sweet a light flavors with cocoa powder and coffee flavors. It ends with a rush of bitter flavors; a mix of wood, eucalyptus, honey and mint. Light palate and soft carbonation. This is quite different for the style.

Have been to the brewery. Very nice people and old-fashioned style of brewing. One of the best special beers in the Netherlands. Nice dark brown collar. High alcohol percentage but you donít taste it. N good palate of different flavors

33cl bottle #611/1186 batch May 2009
Pours a darkblack beer with no head or carbonization! Looks more like some very dark liquor.
The aroma is a bomb of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits and a slight note of sweet liquor and alcohol. Taste is a massive explosion of dark chocolate and powerfull espresso and coffee beans! In the end there is a long espresso afterburn attacking your throat. The drinkability is better then expected but the one thing bothering me is the complete lack of carbonization! It is as flat as possible... .
A massive explosive Stout, but a shame this one has no carbonization. Iím for 99% sure that if there is even a slight amount of carbonization, the explosion of aroma and taste would be gigantic!! So this one certainly needs a retaste!

dutchbeerpages (1732) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2010 One of, if not the best beer of the Netherlands. Almost everything is perfect, the aroma of deep chocolate and malt and alcohol, the beautiful blackness and the brown foam, the overwhelming taste of coffee/chocolate and even stronger liqueurs and the alcoholic finish. Also perfect bitterness and a very nice mochalike aftertaste.

Black with creamy light brown head and a fair lacing. Aromas of coffee, roasted malts and dry yeast. Flavors are acidic and light bitter with coffee, roasted malts and alcohol. Full bodied and smooth. (Waxed and corked bottle no.302, Cardinal, Onsdag^2. 3.3.2010)

Bottle from Beers of Europe. I know this is going to be a cracking beer when itís aromas are floating around the room as I type! Jet black pour with no head, barely any carbonation. Roasted aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel. smoke, tobacco. Lovely! Flavours of dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, caramel. roasted malts. Sweet, smoky, meaty alcohol laden mouthfeel. Finishes dry, sweet with a very pleasing alcohol burn. Absolute classic of this style. Marvelous!

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Nearly pitch black body with ample light brown head. Dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malts, and some hops in the aroma and body. A smooth, sweet body. Well integrated flavors; nothing dominated my palate.
