On tap at Brouwer's. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet upfront with a coffee finish. Very smooth, especially at 11%. A delicious brew.

HerrBierkoenig (676) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2015
From 0,33l bottle, BBD: 06 18 Pours dark black liquid, big frothy brown head, Aroma: dark chocolate, espresso, alcohol, red berries, Taste: medium to heavy sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light to medium sour, dark chocolate, espresso, berries, quite strong alcohol, Palate: full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long chocolate alcohol finish, Overall: fine, very good, but expected a bit more. Strong presence of alcohol all over the beer, rich, but not enough, lacks creamier body.

Bawelt (137) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 28, 2015
Nez : extraordinairement doux, plutôt sucré, caféiné et fond de fruits rouges (quoique fond un peu mangue). Bouche : attaque PARFAITE. Café doux, rond, très fruité ! Vraiment excellent. Viens une amertume de torréfaction qui coupe le tout et qui amène vers une longueur amère pas désagréable mais plate et dommageable vu l’attaque. Bonne imperial stout mais qui ne developpe pas une identité extraordinaire.

TtV (271) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Pitch black beer (no light coming through the glass), syruppy with a medium brown head. Aroma of chocolate, malts and some fruits? The taste starts sweet but later on a pleasant bitterness develops which gets stronger in the aftertaste. Great!

mariuspoenari (11) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Very dark brown, close to black, in colour. Beige head that gives way to a beautiful espresso-like lacing. If you spin the glass around a few times, you’ll get a finger of head again, just beautiful. Smells like roasted malts, dried fruit, dark cherries and coffee. The taste is what you’d expect from the aroma - dark cherries, dark chocolate, molasses and instant coffee. The texture is incredibly smooth and the aftertaste is cherry-bitter. Amazing beer. I am tasting this after several of its barrel-aged variants, and I can see why the latter are so good, because they have an awesome base beer to improve on.

Linnet (1334) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2015
Rich luscious, velvet, alcohol, roasty, coffee. Chocolate, licorice, black colour, medium beige head, lacing. Lots of fruity hoppiness, citric, resinous, bursting of tropical fruits and pine. Big bite, lightly sweet (for the style), salty, ABV evident, but very well integrated. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, hoppy and aromatic finish. Two words: world class!
