kurczako (140) - POLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Doskonały aromat kawy, paloności i trochę owoców. W smaku na początku słodkie, mocno palone, dość intensywna goryczka. Oblepia kubki smakowe. Doskonałe piwo.

sjorsvdg (373) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Deze imperial stout is zwart als koffie. De smaak van koffie keert ook terug in het smaakpalet, evenals pure chocolade en gebrande mout. Deze stout is minder zoet dan sommige van z’n collega’s. De geur is vergeleken bij de smaak wat vlakker en er is wat zuur in te ontwaren.
