4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Pours like motoroil. Thin tan head. Smell of raisins, blackberries, and vanilla extract. Thick mouthfeel. Tastes of dark chocolate, dark fruits, bitter coffee and a smokey aftertaste. Very complex. Great brew!!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Just way too strong for my tastes. Treacley and heavy...a different drink to other Imperial stouts that I’ve tried.

Bottle. Pitch black with creamy beige head. Aromas of dar chocolate, roasted malts and coffee, great vanilla and bourbon, toffee - all mixed and balanced perfectly. In taste roasty, sweet with fantastic vanilla and bourbon flavours. Full bodied, smooth, softly carbonated. Alcohol very well hidden. Fantastic BA Imperial stout. Recommend.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Bottled on 09/2014 and drunk on 07/2015. Opaque black with a thin frothy head that does not last long, nearly no lacings. Vinous, sherry-like, molasses, roasted, lots of black chocolate, liquorice. Very sweet, and slightly bitter, alcoholic. Full bodied and soft carbonation. No clue about the effect of barrel aging as I did not try Black Albert yet. Wood is not easy to feel at least. Complex, good but a little too sweet.

Black pour, creamy tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, nuts, booze. Taste is fudge brownies, figs, maple syrup. Creamy palate. A little too sweet for me but still pretty impressive.

Bottle at Kulminator antwerp . Wow looking back on these notesites thus was by far the most epic beer tasting night I’ve had. All these awesome beers in one place. Sweet almost Belgian candy though this is a stout. Black body . Some fruit elements that make this an interesting and unique stout. Awesome beer.
