4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 The pour is deep black and the head is frothy, creamy, and dark tan in color. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, raisins, chocolate fudge, oak, and tar. It’s a shame it’s so subdued, because it’s phenomenal upon close inspection. The taste is quite interesting: it starts out bitter from the roasted malts, then turns into delicious dark chocolate, and culminates with a dark note, a little like soy sauce, a little like earth, and a little like ashes. The mouthfeel is substantive, with a full body and prickling carbonation. Alcohol more implied than felt.

Awesome beer. Takes all the best elements of an imperial stout and a belgian strong beer, and jams them together. I’ll definitely be trying more from this brewery!

Pours a thick heavy black tar pour with an ephemeral Java head. Nose is heavy strong roasted malt with notes of bitter black licorice. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, which lingers and deep roasted woody malt, alcohol hidden despite the ABV . Finishes on the same tasting notes, mild lacing, with a dry chocolate sweet ending. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Oregon Brewers fest great, again, and a big part of that their international tent with beers & brewers from Japan, China & the Netherlands, Strong alcohol smell to this, burnt alcohol, espresso. rich chewy texture, flavor tamps back the alcohol a little with molasses, tobacco and wood smoke. surprisingly clean finish.

0,33l bottle from Firmabier. Pours pitch black colour with a moderate gray head that quickly reaches the top. Aroma of dark malts, caramelly chocolate, dark coffee, some peat and smoke, cognac, nuttiness. Surprisingly light body for a IS, around medium body. Very enjoyable.

Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a pitch black body with medium sized brown head. Quite light aroma, although fine. Chocolate, cocoa, latte here. Flavor was smooth, lightly roasted with coffee, chocolate, wood. Medium to full body within which alcohol was hidden very well, felt only as a slight warming in its finish. A very nice IS, although admittedly not stellar. Looking forward other beers from this brewery which has become available in Croatia!
