Oh man, this was incredable. I never even thought of the possibility of a belgian stout. Only when I opened the mail i realized. Great looking bottle, easy open-built-in top. Nice thick stout. Great belgian yeast tastes with smokey character.

Dunkel og kraftig, men bliver ikke for tung. Ikke just en flyttebajer, men overraskende let og man kan godt tage to, hvis det regner. Taber hurtigt skum.

Den er meget kraftig i smagen, med specielt en tyk kaffesmag, det er sĺ vidt jeg ved en ˝ trappist og halv stout.
De har brugt den i Friland pĺ DR2 til noget creme ti ljordbćr engang. Mmm, se dét er řl!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of yeast, roasted and some chocolate and some licorice. Taste of the same. For me this imperial stout has way to much yeast in the aroma and taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BeerExpress. BB Jan 2017. Pours reddish brown with a big light beige head. Head’s retention and lace very good. The aroma is somewhat roasty, but more sourish of red berries, yeast... Sourish, bitter taste... Dryish ashy on the palate, light-bodied. Carbonation very moderate, almost nonexistent. Finish is surprisingly bitter. Not anything near a stout I think. Quite a swindle considering the supposed style, high rating, and price tag (was around € 4.50). In itself not bad though...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark with an ivory top. Medium sweet caramel nose, ripe banana. Taste of burnt bitter caramel, moss tea, ashy as they mostly are more than smoky and higher abv. is more a player sitting on the bench. A bit sugary actually, ashy and bitter with a carbonated mineral water touch. Good part is it is dry, not sticky.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Bottle conditioned. Pours dark brown with a very small dissipating head, a thin hazy layer of retention, micro bubbles here and there.
Nose: sweet caramel barley malts, (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: half crisp/slick, low CO2
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, light roasted barley malt, soy sauce, almost salty, cola, licorice, gingerbread spices, > light tingly mouthfeel
Finish: residual soft bittersweet maltiness, minor tangy, roasted barley exhale, clean finish.
Summary: The initial sip was underwhelming seeing that it is bottle conditioned yet drank with quite low carbonation. As it warms however, layers of of clean flavours emerge. Very sippable, well hidden ABV - not as heavy as 9% suggests. I would have preferred a creamier mouthfeel though.
