3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330ml bottle at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam on 3 April 2011. Almost black in colour. Pungent roasty coffee aroma. Coffee is very prominent in the flavour too - more of a concentrate/Camp coffee feel here. Very rich but not too sweet. Bags of flavour but I found the "regular" Imperial Stout better balanced and, overall, a little more enjoyable. Another fine offering from one of the best breweries in the Netherlands though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
dark brown body, on the ugly side, hardly any head at all, light lacing though... the aroma is really weak, light coffee with a hint of vanilla, a touch generic and boring... taste is also all coffee, its a little to light and simple, but it mimics coffee really well... big coffee fan would love this but I wouldn’t have again

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle at the Bilbo Baggins Stilwater/12% Imports dinner on Friday November 12, 2010. Served in a wine glass.
Pours a very, very dark brown color. Appears black until held up to the light. No head at all, though there are some very slight legs. The nose is straight espresso with a bit of light roast.
The taste is roast and espresso with some dark chocolate and cocoa powder as well. There is some slight cream and a touch of vanilla. Medium body with low carbonation and a nice roasted character. Pretty tasty and a nice all around beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An almost black pour with a small tan head that becomes a ring. Roasted coffee notes and chocolate aroma. A robust flavor that is also coffee and chocolate. A nice hop zing adds complexity. Some oatmeal as it warms and there is just a splash of mint. Sweet but still dry. Very tasty.
