Maakun (903) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Black with beautiful thick beige head, with in the middle some big bubbles. Big toasted malts, chocolate pudding, bbq, lots of roasted nuts (walnuts, Brazil nuts), rye, brown bread, caramel, fudge. Boozy with cognac and bourbon. Thick flavor but not overtly sweet, roasted bitter finish. Full bodied with creamy feel. Big beer, and well done.

Fashawn (221) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 3, 2015
Buona imperial stout, dall’Olanda arrivano sempre buoni prodotti. Birra nera con schiuma non generosa, ma fine è compatta. Odore di malti torrefatti, orzo, caffè, elegante ma poco varia. In bocca è accademia, liquirizia, orzo e caffè, con cioccolata amara. Ordinata, pulita e senza sbavature. Non stanca,cremosa e corposa. Buonissima birra.

Pyobon (995) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2014
(Bottle) Very black with small tan head. Lovely rich complex aroma - dark toffee, licorice, coffee, dates. Fantastic palate - full bodied, thick, rich, creamy, slightly sticky with velvety carbonation with some fine bright sparkle to it. Excellent taste too - again rich and complex - dark toffee / black treacle with bitter chocolate and some slight notes of dried fruit through the start and mid-palate. There are some candy / cough medicine hints. A respectable bitterness develops in the finish and stays around a long time. Fantastic beer.

Bottle @ home. 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.

alteregoo (106) - POLAND - DEC 17, 2014
W szkle tworzy się ładna, brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa piana. Barwa czarna z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat to przede wszystkim kakao, gorzka czekolada, toffi i pumpernikiel. Są też nuty likierowe, śliwkowe, czereśniowe. W smaku lekka czekoladowa słodycz, spora paloność, trufle, wanilia i likier wiśniowy kontrowane sporą goryczą, o ziołowo-apteczno-alkoholowym profilu. Gorycz naprawde jest konkretna,dość długo się utrzymuje na języku, potęgowana przez alkohol (na etykiecie niby jest 70, ale na stronie browaru 96 IBU i to faktycznie czuć). Na szczęście aksamitny, oleisty, gęsty charakter piwa i niskie wysycenie delikatnie to neutralizują. Może trochę za gorzkie i za słabo ukryty alkohol, mogłoby być też słodsze...
