[Tap at the brewpub] A pitch black beer with a small brown head. The aroma contains strong notes of primarily coffee and vanilla - reminds me of a good ice coffee. The flavor has strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, and again vanilla. Wow.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 66 cl) 9% ABV in this version. Pitch black, completely opaque with a bubbly, light brown head. Burned nose, full of coffee aromas - actually extemely coffeeish - one of the most aromatic beers I’ve ever come close to. Extremely dry - the world’s driest beer? Very burned flavours, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and burned toast. A bit like licking your fireplace? This may sound unpleasant but the beer certainly is not. It’s a true experience. Very dry, bitter finish - not a hoppy bitterness, again the burned malts dominate. 031205

A big coffee flavoured imperial stout. Black soloured. Coffee fragrant. Big soft maltyness, very salty, burnt flavours. A tasty, dangerous potion reminding of Irish coffee.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
4th May 2008. Rich dark stout. This is better when not too cold. Silky smooth with a subtle sweet note and subtle vanilla and even subtler red fruit. This is followed by a very dominant coffee note which leads to a dry bitter finish.

Black color; brownish creamy head. Heavy aroma of roasted malt, spicy (pepper...), some coffee, light leather, very light smoke. Good body structure; smooth mouthfeel, the carbonation is a bit excessive; strong flavor of roasted malt and dark chocolate, coffee, light liquorice; moderate residual sweetness; correct bitterness, some of it coming from the roasted malt, evident in the end. Very well contructed, with a degree of complexity.

Black color, with a huge beige head. It has a delicate coffee aroma, still quite simple. I’m not overy impressed by the flavor, but I have to acknowledge a few qualities, among which the nice espresso flavor, with an original touch (dry liquorice and light spices); it has a good body structure. The final has still a quite intense power, with a pervasive dry roasted malt, that this time I like. Undoubtly good,
