Donkerbruine kleur, amper schuim. Ruikt naar peat en toast. Smaakt fantastisch, zwaar en toch zacht, zoet maar niet te.

rosenbergh (6699) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bottled 24/06/2010. BB 24/06/2015. From bierkompass.de.
Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small creamy tan head. Strong malt, sweetness, dark fruits, mild roastiness and mild hops in the aroma. Barley Wine aroma. The flavour is super sweet... dark fruits, sweetness, maltiness, oat and some darkness. Way too sweet to be enjoyable. Not my idea of a tasty beer. Mild hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Intoxicating? Hell yeah!

Gary (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Bottled/ Good complex nose , boozy , dried fruity and toffee , nice . These guys cant seem to brew beer with a decent head ..its flat and dark brown; Drinks rich and boozy , tart and cloying . peppery booze has a mustard like texture ..it festers on my palate ..This needs some dryness in the finish ..good sipper though

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle@home. Deep brown, with a small, tan, lacing head. Aroma of molasses, honey, cocoa, caramel, hops, hints of dark fruits. Medium dense but on the lighter side, fairly carbonated. Sweet taste, somewhat roasty, with slightly bitter, dry, almost tarty finish. No real taste of alcohol. Nothing fancy, but a solid, good brew.

At WVRST. January 28, 2014. Bit of sourness on the nose and in the flavour. Flavours of tart cherries, toffee and caramel. Very dark beer with nice head. Very drinkable. Quite a lovely beer.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
330ml bottle, pours black with a small off white head, aroma is milk chocolate, cherry, fig & prune, body is full and creamy, finish is balanced with fruit flavours and a medium & crisp bitterness. Carbonation average to low. Is this a Belgian strong? It’s a very Imperial Stout like Belgian strong. Very good though.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Bottle, 2011. Very deep aromas with a lot of sweetness and dark fruits, really good. Sweet taste but with hops coming through along the way. It is quite refreshing for a 10 abv. with a good balance but also a slightly vinous dryness.

330 ml bottle at home. Pours clear medium brown with an amber hue. Nose of roasted malts, nuts and raisins (little bit of evolution after one year). Medium body, malty sweetnes and taste of milk chocolate, some soy sauce and forest notes.
