Pitch black. Creamy espresso head. Roast bomb with ashy charcoal and chocolate. Taste is even better. Great profile that would taste great in a barrel. Roast chocolates, coffee, creamy vanilla and spice of rye and pepper. Easy to drink with just a minor hint of booze

Whats with the high ratings? Acrid, watery, slightly acidic, old dairy. Odd and not in a good or interesting way. Move along.

Bottle probably well under a year old. Pours black with tan fleeting head and lace. Aroma is big and bitter sweet roast, nuts, and licorice. Flavor follows suit with well balanced chocolate and light raisin sweetness with heavier roast and hop bitterness than I would expect for 40 IBU. Feel is lively and cooling with a long roast linger and relatively light body. I’m loving this classic and not too aggressive take on an imperial stout. Kind of an every day imperial stout of very high quality.

Pitch black syrupy pour with small tan head. Chocolate and Coffee nose and the roasted malts come through real nice. This is one inviting aroma! Taste is pretty much similar to the smell and a nice sweet aftertaste. Awesome thick and creamy mouthfeel with not too much carbo. Fantastic imperial stout. Cool to have found this in a belgian beer store. Highly recommended!

Bottle shared by Mick at a tasting at my place. Big umami savoury nose, milk chocolate on a thick slick pour. Bitter dark chocolate, berries, roasty & sweet really good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Darkness black color with a nice brown head, 1 finger tall! Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee with notes of caramel! Taste was chocolate on the maximum, with coffee and caramel on the backbone. Bittersweet, long aftertaste, very sticky to the mouth! Medium body (maybe light for an Imperial Stout) with low to medium carbonation! Excellent!!
