4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Pours black with tan head aromas of heavy roast and coffee. The taste is delicious, rich and bright on the coffee in the foreground. This gives the best coffee stouts a run for their money. The grain is smooth and easy to get around with a large flavor of barley and prevalent oats with a dense body for strength. Some bitterness from the grain comes in with a noticeable green hop flavor. The alcohol is hardly apparent. The beer has a lightly fruity yeast that flows well with the coffee. This tastes like coffee with some grainy sweetness, really good stuff if you like heavily roasted things. Can?t say enough, this is a great oatmeal stout.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gray wax sealed bottle. Bubbily dark black with a little bit of foamy tan head. Aroma is mild but sweet milky stout comes through. Really smooth roasted bitter coffee beans, dark chocolate, mild hop bitterness at the end. Thick body and dry. Some lacto notes in the finish linger with the coffee, like drinking milk n coffee. Some booze in the final sips, pleasant though. Preferred the Slyrs whisky barrel version, but this one is really awesome too. I still can’t believe I’m drinking catshit.

Poured from a bottle. Really great imperial stout. Black with mocha head. Nose is coffee, chocolate and roast along with vanilla, and hints of fruit and spice. Dark ripe fruit on the tongue, not too sweet, finishes slightly bitter. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Drinkable, alchohol well hidden. Plenty of complexity to enjoy with this beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Thick black body, medium brownish head. Aroma of toasted malt, surprisingly floral, i had notes of lavender at first... Some fruits too like plum, blueberries and black current. Coffee is coming afterward and as the beer breath it takes a more prominent place. Flavours of toasted barley, coffee, lots of malt complexity, caramel, licorice, alcohol fusel, cocoa. The floral hops arrives at the end bringing the bitterness with them. Long finish, toasted malt, coffee, alcohol, strong bitterness. Oily body, low carbo. What an outstanding beer, complexe, savory, balanced, elegant.

Gigantische aanrader! Wat een bijzonder bier! Vrij duur maar is het zeker waard. Vette fles met kaarsvet dichtgemaakt. Bijzonder verhaal over de koffie die erachter zit. Oatmeal stout, mooie donkere kleur met een hele gave caramel kleurige schuimkraag. Enorm goed gebalanceerd! caramel/koffie smaak. Gigantisch lekkere, volle smaak. Super zachte smaak.
