deep dark brown colour, half inch creamy brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of chocolate, some coffee, dried berries, liqueur and alcoholic notes; taste of intensively roasted coffee and malts, liqueur, and some berries again; neverending roasted bitter aftertaste (based on the aroma, I expected something more sweet); excellent imperial stout

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
