Bottle. A quite agressive imperial stout (dark chocolate, licorice etc.) with
lots of smoked, sausage kind of notes. The smokeiness is too heavy in my opinion and hides the other qualities of the beer.

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.

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.

Looking forward to taste this one. Tap at De Molen. Very small head, holds ok. But I want some more head. Pitch black with a beige head. Good smell, coffeee chocolate, nice sweetness and some wood. Also sourness comes up moderated. Taste is overwhelming the sourness mixed with coffee. Fruit-chocolate, a it bit dissappointed cause it seems a it to complex, but still a nice, maybe a bit overdone beer.
