__Rb81 (88) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours black with a long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and hops. Roasted taste of malts, coffee, dark chocolate and bitter hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, but has some sharp edges in the taste.

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Darky dark pour with little to no head. Malt and weird wet dog smell which i am not used to with stouts. And some distant chocolate/coffee aroma. Wow, absolutely fantastic strong bitter coffee taste. Red fruits to accompany that with nice bitter fininsh. Really thick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Amazing Imperial stout. And I?m not just saying that because I?m dutch myself. Deserves high ratings.

czar (3784) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
pours very dark brown with a nice beige head, some retention and nice lacing. roasted and smoked chocolate malts, brown sugar, buckwheat honey, spices - licorice, bold resin/pine, citrus, booze, burnt caramel, coffee - roasted acidity, molasses - sweet stuff, but also raisins and some other dried oxidized dark fruits, berries for instance, slightly perfumey - liquor-like. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sweet yet assertive bitter coffee-piney finish. sweet, i guess cloying, relatively complex and tasty. i tend to much appreciate ris coming from netherlands and its relative neighbour, denmark.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 28, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Black pour with a dark tan head. Really roasty and malty with a bit of ash, earthy hops, and licorice. Heavy on the dark chocolate. Decent amount of molasses, burnt sugar, and overripe dark fruits, too. Flavor is a bit syrupy, sticky sweet along with some bitter roast elements. Lots of ash, dark chocolate, and anise. Sort of sticky and syrupy on the tongue without much carbonation. Lots of molasses and dark fruit.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Sweet dark chocolate chips, dates, plum, port wine, caramel / toffee, earth / soil, nuts, fudge, bitter powdered chocolate shards, wedding cake. Full bodied, creamy and soft texture, highly sweet with limited push back by bitterness, acidity and carbonation. When warm its more gassy which helps cut the sugar. From bottle.

dado93 (123) - ITALY - JAN 25, 2014
Very dark brown color with not very persistent tan head, aroma of roasted malt, not much intense. In mouth are smooth, light carbonation, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes, but not very bitter and with a sweet venatour, aftertaste is roasted, but not very hoppy. Great Imperial Stout, incredibly drinkable for their 11

ABT_S54 (89) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl in a Trappist glass. Pours a wonderful thick black liquid. Supremely, smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Taste is unbelievably balanced with a chocolaty sweetness and a lingering (subtle) burnt bitterness. On par with De Molen Sense and Sensation and Black Albert. Wonderful.
