0,33 bottle from 4th Főzdefeszt. Aroma a bit neutral, mildly roasted and there is a hint of cognac or port. Fluid is very thick and oily. Head is fairly thin and vanishes quickly, acceptable at such alcohol content . Taste is again mild, yet complex and characteristic. Roasted, cocoa, toffee. Some fruits sometimes come to the surface for a short time like sour cherry or red grapes. A bitter (after)taste is always there. Carbonation is very soft, this fluid is very creamy. Well composed and well balanced, maybe it could be more complex on the fruit side. Yet, a very good effort and the long lasting mild bitter aftertaste makes good memories.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a medium brown head. High roasted aroma with licorice, chocolate, cocoa and light hops. Roasted flavor with light licorice, cocoa, dusty hops and has a high bitter malty finish. Does not taste like 12% abv.

worldbeertaste (1635) - AUSTRIA - 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.

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.
