3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Opaque black with medium creamy beige head. Dark malt, dark chocolate and cocoa aroma, some alcohol; coffee not really detected. With good will cappuccino in the beginning. Taste starts grainy, carbonation induced, later with a variety of coffee notes, roasted and unroasted, sweet and dry, also "Ovomaltine". The coffee notes I cannot describe in an other way than somewhat "pushing downward", as if hop or sour "upward" notes would be kept under a certain limit. A late entering sourness definitely has its origin in the coffee addendum. This beer brings together coffee notes that may stem from surrogates or from real coffee and deserves a pedagogical merit in this regard. Definitely it is an harmonic integration of corresponding flavours. If it was more fruity and less grainy accentuated I would concede an even better score.

Pours black with lots of mocha head. Nice aromas of fresh coffee, lactose, strawberries, dark fruit, toffee. A bit thin for an imperial stout but the alcohol is no where to be found. Just fantastic coffee, red fruit, and sweet cream flavors. Great stuff.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, and also trade with Benzai. Pours pitch black with non-existent head. Completely flat, as is often the case. Some mediocre bitter coffee notes alongside slick dumbed down roasted malts. A bit disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL from dcmchew. BOTTLED 24-JAN-2013.
Coffee leftovers with some weird stale semi-fermented notes, some black malt sweetness in the background. Not much sweetness, fruitiness or real roast. The aftertaste is plain manure. The nastiest stout I ever had.

0,33l fles volgens mij bij vonk Zaandam vandaan. Diep zwart zonder noemenswaardige schuimkraag. Wat een intense geur en smaakbeleving geroosterde en gerookte mout maar daarbovenuit de extreem volle kopi loewak koffie met een diepe bitter, zure afdronk die mintuten je mond blijft vullen. erg bijzonder.
