Black color with no head at all. Aroma of liquerece, chocolate, strawberies may be, interesting. Taste is sweet and a bit bitter like coffee, nicely balanced. Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation. My girlfriend likes it and I like it as well. If you like sweet stouts this one is pretty good.

Aroma: not very intense. Roasted and toasted malts, black chocolate, hints of alcohol. Some weird aroma i couldn’t identify. Appearance: black color, totally opaque. Thick super creamy tan-light brown head made of tiny bubbles. Nice Brussels’ lace. Taste: light-to-medium sweetness, medium-to-high bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of dark roasted malts, black chocolate, liquorice. Palate: medium-to-full body, oily-to-creamy texture, extremely long dry bitter and pleasant finish of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Overall: not very intense aromas, but a lot of flavor (nice roasted and toasted malts, black chocolate). Alcohol is not very present despite of the high content.

Black with a thin tan head. Very sweet soy aroma. Smooth with an initial sweetness and a drier soy finish. Good but does. Not have the bitterness for style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown colour, medium (big for this style!) beautiful off-white rocky head. Aroma is very rich in coffee, also dark chocolate, licorice and vanilla; some fruit after a while, too; a bit faint, but good overall. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, slightly sour. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Quite a good imperial stout, needs a bit of refining but it’s on the verge of becoming one of the greats.

Uit de fles geschonken @Emelisse. Mooie volle imp. stout, geurig en smaakvol: geroosterde mout, caramel, koffie, merk weinig van de 11% abv.

Bottlebrought back from a trip to Amsterdam. Black with a fading beige head. Fantastic chocolate aroma. The taste has spice with rich chocolate and coffee. Lingering bitter chocolate finish. Nice full mouthfeel. Superb.
