4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep black body with excellent head. Wiskey aromas are there but not too strongly and not with the amount of peat that I often dislike. Supported by a good amount of roasted malts and woody, aromatic hops. Chocolate malts too and a somewhat bready yeast. Excellent mouth feel, so (dangerously) drinkable and warming yet not too alcoholic. I especially love the malt base here that’s so well developed. One of the series’ best! (33cl bottle at Dégust in Hoogeveen)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma is extremely strong, full of whiskey, a little smoke, and a little cocoa. Flavour is quite complex, full of elegant whiskey barrels, alcohol, and a touch of cocoa. Extraordinarily complex and well-refined. The whiskey barrels are exceptionally well worked in, making this very complex. Awesome version of this base impie stout.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Van de tap @ 24 uurs Maastricht. Zwart met een plakkerige kraag. Ruikt heerlijk naar hout en whiskey. Volle smaak. Boterachtig smooth, hout whiskey, donkergebrand. Zoet, eigenlijk iets tè. Bij elke slok is het begin heel heftig en zakt het daarna wat weg in de zoetigheid. Toch erg lekker heftig smaakvol bier.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg in Holland. This is a great looking, sophisticated beer. Loads going on the nose and the taste comes through, similar. This has all the qualities of an Imperial Stout that I like, coffee, liquorice, some leather. Smooth and full bodied in the mouth and a pleasure to drink
