33 cc bottle, drinking temperature 14c. aroma, coffee, blue cheese, charcoal, wasabi. Pitch black thick body, light brown head and great lacing. Oily and syrupy palate. A bitter aftertaste that keeps on lingering for a long time... hmmmm

Ocenę przysłania mi użycie w piwie chmielu ziołowego, którego nie lubię, poza tym treściwe i aksamitne.

330mL bottle BB 12/2015 Amazing looking beer; jet black, opaque with a big rocky orange-tan head persisting. Serious nose to it; coffee-liqueur, dark chocolate, black plums/fruits & dried fruit, molasses & soy sauce. Thick, oily viscous body, low carbonation, very long on the palate. Luscious, decadent palate; liqueur-like chocolate & coffee, cocoa, cookies, anise, tar, spicy hops, sultanas & dates & prunes - so much going on. Big lingering bitterness, long warm finish. Top notch Imperial stout!

Unde (420) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Black beer with not much head but some lacing is there. Aroma has licorice, anise, smoke and grapefruit. Taste has anise, grapefruit, grassy hops, lots of roasted malts and slight alcohol booze in the end. Medium body with low-to-medium carbonation. There was some weird grassy/anise taste to it that I disliked.

An IRS like it should be, full bodied and well balanced. If you don’t need a fork and knife to drink it, it’s not a stout.

Een enorm slecht bier, niet te drinken. We hebben met 4 ervan geproefd en niemand kon meer dan een slok binnenkrijgen

Bottle. Pours black, with a small off white head. Aroma is roasted malts with liquorice, cocoa, tar, tobacco and coffee. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet burned malts with cocoa and liquorice, giving a sweet malty finish.

Drank as draught. Very strong taste with some smoke. Maybe some licorice too. Looks great too.

Procent (172) - POLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Aromaty palone, głównie kawa, lekki karmel, wszystko bardzo kremowe. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzysty, pod światło ciemnorubinowy. Piana niewielka, beżowa, ładny lacing. W smaku mocno palone, wytrawne kawowe. W tle słodkie nuty karmelowe. Konsystencja kremowa, odczucie w ustach pełne, goryczka wysoka. Dla mnie goryczka za wysoka, ale piwo bardzo dobrze złożone, gęste, kremowe. Warka do 09.2016r.

330 ml bottle @ De Drie Dorstige Horsten, Utrecht. Originally rated 2014-08-30.
Dark brown, almost black beer with big mocha colored head leaving lacing. Aromas of sweet dark cake, milk chocolate, licorice and piney hops. Flavor has licorice, bitterness, sweet brown sugar and just some roasted malts. Quite full and slick palate with stinging bitterness. Quite strong bitterness blending with heat and burn of alcohol and aftertaste of liquoricish sweetness. Almost like an Imperial Black IPA, really heavy on the hops. Also licoricy sweet and burning but not boozy, just like salmiakkikossu.
