COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2010
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.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 19, 2010
Tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London, Fonefan’s 50th / Masters Division shindig. Brilliant in every way. I fell in love with this beer, delicious. Pitch black, hardly no head. Roasted malt, port, sweet vanilla, alcohol, caramel. Taste is divine, slips down so easily, hides its strength well, malty, thick, vinous, spirit burn right at the end, coffee and a creamy taste. I’m absolutely blown away.

phredrik (999) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 31, 2011
Tap @ CBF. Aroma has leather, soy sauce, very intense, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla, tar, cough syrup. Nice balance between intense roast and sweetness. Taste has soy sauce, leather, intense coffee, fark chocolate, hints of cherries, vanilla, caramel and toffey. This beer is so thick that you can cut it with a knife, insanely chewy.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 12, 2012
29/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al De Molen beer festival. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, con schiuma color cappuccino, liquida e poco persistente. L’aroma è di una intensità davvero fuori dal comune, con note di malti tostati, caffettose, di cioccolato, vaniglia, e alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è potentissima, caffè, cenere, vaniglia, alcol, note legnose, devastante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione corretta. Imperial Stout sorprendente, di una intensità straordinaria, terribilmente strong.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2010
Small bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is as black as it gets with a thick very brown head that tends to fade but gets more and more creamy to the point when it settles an inch high. The nose is roasted with notes of burned malts, hazel nuts and a potpouri of bitter aromas. There are some notes of lacorice and leather and a hint of vanilla and wood. The mouthfeel is huge with a creamy palate. The taste starts of with quite some bitterness that tends to change caracter as the taste developes on its journey theough your mouth and down your throat. A mild bourning feeling on the lipps from the alcohol. There are some roasted coffee, english lacorice and some burned pieces of wood and finally a touch of alcohol. Its a good imperial stout with a great masculin attitude.
