sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2013
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel. Brune foncée, col moka très effervescent et s’estompant rapidement. Arôme présente un bouquet profond chocolaté avec des effluves de sucre brun - caramélisé suivi d’une certaine douceur de barrique - bourbon? L’usage du malt fumé se retrouve très en retrait et que faiblement perceptible tant le boisé et l’alcool enveloppent le tout. Palais est malté, chocolaté et caramel, pointe d’amertume houblonnée sur un résiduel boisé. Le houblon est en retrait et ajoute ce profil typique DM qui reste très européen - noble. Le fumé est ici aussi faible et se retrouve obstrué par le mûrissage en fût qui laisse tout de même entrevoir des notes de cendres et de grains surtout au niveau chocolaté. Esthétiquement une bière qui n’est pas attractive vu son col.

CraftBeerNick (751) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle at home, 19th October 13. Pours pitch black, little or no head. Aroma is liquorice, liquor, bovril, leather, quite meaty. Taste is smooth and luxurious, very complex, and a perfect example of barrel aged imperial stout. Loads of liquorice, leather, tar, slight whiskey notes, all blended in harmony. Definately a mans beer. Alcohol is present but not at 11.0 ABV. Fantastic beer, will need to make it a regular, import from Amsterdam

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Black beer, with an aroma of vanilla. Diverse and rich taste. Some smoke, bourbon, coffee and of course roasted malt. Great long aftertaste. Truly delicious.

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured black, with a small, beige foam that lingers. Licorice, molasses, caramel, lots of roasted malts, herbs, oak and alcohol in the nose. First sip brings chocolate, honey sweet caramel combined with bitter, roasty taste. Heavy, dense body with low carbonation. Syrupy consistency, surprisingly easy to drink. Sweet, roasty finish with a lasting ashy aftertaste. I have to say, this is one awesome

TET (1434) - FINLAND - OCT 5, 2013
A black beer with a weak and beige head. The nose is strongly roasted, sweet berries, coffee and some barrel. Rich of taste, balanced sweetness and roastiness, coffee, some port wine like fruitness, some drying bitterness in the end, but still quite sweet. Almost full bodied, low carbonation and slightly sticky to drink, overally the rich palate. Sweet, but still balanced and pleasant beer, riped fruits makes this beer more interesting.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2013
Almost no head, rust-coloured rim over virtually black beer. Alcohol, wood, chocolate, mushrooms, meaty. Don’t get the smoke in the nose; mainly suggesting sweetness. Dry-bitterish at first; ashy rather than smoked. In the finish gradually much more sweetness, combined with alcohol. Sharpish-roasted character; ketjap manis, hint at parsley. Medium bodied at least, oily-slick, alcoholwarming. Good, if a bit undefined. The alcoholoverload remains, all things considered, dangerously hidden.

zenkis (497) - Ogre, LATVIA - SEP 30, 2013
few sips shared with beer buddy
Color seems black with tan brown small top, aroma - surprisingly wooden, bit sour with gentle touch of not so many roast as chocolate darkness. Smooth malty sweetish, min sour berries, bitter dark malt. Very mild, soft palate. Good balance.Interesting one, wish to repeat more sips.
