Pitchblack, very small off-white head. Loads of coffee in the aroma but also some bitter chocolate and roastiness - not much of the promised hops - same could be said about the taste which seems to be dominated by a stange sourness that somehow seems wrong (I Wonder if this was just a bad batch). Some coffee and chocolate as well.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Hue sort of black silky smooth roasted imperial stout that makes me think of De Molen. Solid black with a disappearing ginco brown head. Smells of deep roast, liquorish and coffee. Smooth silky body. Tastes of rich malt with lots of dark chocolate and a nice bitter roasty coffee finish. A fantastic stout that covers the 12% alcohol perfectly and should be bought in numbers and aged. Bravo.

vanelst (153) - AUSTRIA - SEP 2, 2014
Aroma of coffee, chocolate and something sweet i can´t put my finger on (berry´s?). Taste is slightly bitter with a kind of sourish dry bitter aftertaste. Interesting brew although I can´t say I enjoyed it.
