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.

Bottle. Dark brown nearly black body. Medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and dried fruits. Flavour is simpler, sweet and roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee notes. The bitterness is felth early and stays for the fairly long finish full of roasted malt. A good stout well balanced event if I would have like to taste more complex as the nose.

Imperial stout buona che però non colpisce per particolari sapore. Leggermente amara, si sente soprattutto l’aroma di caffè

Negra opaca, ligeramente rojiza a la luz. Espectacular espuma, cremosisima y de varios dedos. Y perdura y perdura.. Aroma amargo/agrio característico de las stouts. Ahí se acaba lo parecido. Fantástico cuerpo y sabor excelente mezclando frutas del bosque, té negro, humo. Esconde de forma increíble los 9 gradados. Deja un gustazo...memorable, durante minutos. Excelente.
