3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ De Wildeman. Black color with dense brown head. Strong cognac aroma, with some chocolate, roast/coffee, wood (oak), vanilla, alcohol. Taste is somewhat sweet & alcoholic, cognac. Finishes with a good combination of bitter, roast, ash/peat & wood. A bit too cognac-y for me, but still a good big beer of course.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at In de Wildeman. Opaque black, thick brown head. Aroma has a very strong malty backbone, coffee, chocolate, hint of blackcurrant. Very complex flavor, nutty, honey, hops, fruit, this is seriously complex. Extremely longlasting finish. For an Imperial Stout not very bitter, instead it’s rather at the sweet side, which is unconventional but works out very very well. May be the best Imperial Stout i know, absolutely outstanding.
