4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Gouda Winterbier Fest. Opaqueblack pour, thin bubbly brown foam. Recognizable H & V aroma, rich chocolate notes, roasty, light ash, light smokiness, bourbon. Taste is rich, boozy, dark chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, sweet bourbon vanilla notes. Palate is thick, rich and syrupy with a great warming alcohol sensation. American brewers could learn a thing or two about De Molen’s and Struise’s high ABV beers, a real pleasure to drink.

At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma has a lot of alcohol, dessert wine licorice and dark chocolate. Sweet roasted malt flavour with coffee and dark chocolate, some boourbon and coconut notes and warming alcohol. For an 18% monster, it has great balance

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Borefts ’13. I am pretty sure I had rated this already but now it’s gone. One of the best beers of the festival. Totally black in colour, small brown head. No way it felt like an 18%. Bourbon, roasted malts, vanilla on the aroma. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, follows the nose. A bit sticky on the palate with low carbonation. Thick body. Really great!
