4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2013 vintage. Sweet nose with coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Bitter coffee taste up front followed by the mellow smooth bourbon sweetness. Sticky syrupy body but also smooth, easy to drink. A great beer but for the price, with Espresso Yeti and Big Bad Baptist available for about a third, I don't see buying this again. It's well worth trying and an excellent beer.

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Nice RIS, with whiskey booze and coffee tones. Could use more depth though, it’s very good, but not one of the best.

Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of lots of slight spicy coffee, roast, some dark chocolate, slight touch of vanilla. Quite some malty and coffee bitterness in taste, just a little cookie. Ok.

Another brewery that makes some very nice tasting imperial stouts. This one just let me down a bit, because there was less actual taste inside as expected. Still very nice, but misses a small boost for me.

66cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Black colour with medium beige frothy head, looks perfect as expected. Aroma is simple but very good: coffee, chocolate and cereals. Similar taste of course, but the coffee touch is so delicious, and does not mask the chocolate notes and the hops. The palate is very balanced, one notices the sweetness of the malts with a lingering bitter finish. Full body, good carbonation. Really pleasant...and expensive!
