3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at ABC Den Haag. Dark mahogany pour with a thin tan head. Malty aroma but this beer is all about the malty Sorachi Ace bitterness in the flavour. The Sorachi Ace hop suits a Russian Imperial Stout much more than an IPA. A really nice beer and worth tracking down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 On tap at HaandFestival 2012. Itís a black one, looking really gorgeous with its dense, tan to dark beige, fingerthick head. Roasted malts, coffee, licorice and some alcohol notes in the aroma. The flavor is roasted and sweet, with licorice, a nice hoppy bitterness and some coffee-like bitterness. Full body, warming, soft and pleasantly carbonated on the palate. A tasteful, pleasant and really lovely beer. Rating: 7-5-8-4-16-4.0. 120504
Bottle. A dark brown beer with a small, dense, light tan head. Not much impact from the hops in the aroma, itís mostly roasted malts, coffee and cocoa. The same goes for the flavor, I canít really say I sense the hops, except for the bitterness chiming in towards the end, where itís also quite evident. Doesnít matter though, itís still a fine beer, well worthy of a revisit. 120817
