Has a funky smell to it that I?m not a fan. Taste is chocolatey but alright, dissappointed after the oak aged yeti.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 25.01.2014, 0,65l bottle (bbd. october 2012) @ home:
Big slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange and slightly sweet, dark malts, broth, yeast, soy sayce, caramel, chocolate, grass, butterscotch. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, butterscotch, yeast, licorice, dark sugar, caramel, broth, grass. Medium bitterness, a little thin watery body. Fair enough, but not really my cup of tea. And even though it’s an old bottle, I don’t really think it would have been any better if it was fresh either. Imperial stout and belgian yeast, not the perfect combo.

Pitch black with a medium-brown head, this has an interestingly sweet, spicy flavor that’s almost plant-like and very green. It’s an interesting mix of a stout with Belgian yeast that yields a light, creamy, well-flavored imperial stout. This is smooth.

Bottle, Geers. Pours dark / black. Dark brown head. Nose is a bit estery, the proof of Belgian yeast? But roasted grains kick in and stay. Good aroma of nuts, roasted beans, toffee & dark chocolate. Low carbonation, very very smooth palate. Silky. Tastes well balanced, somehow sweet, bitter & sour at the same time. Alcohol incredibily hidden. One of the better stouts I’ve had in a long time.

One of the best dark beers I have ever had. Pours super dark- looks like espresso with a good layer of crema. Little to no head on the beer. Roast malts, toffee and coffee flavor. Hoppy ending. Excellent beer.
