Deze zware stout is gebrouwen met wat rookmout en veel donkere geroosterde moutsoorten. Hierdoor krijgt het bier veel drogende gebrande bitterheid. Deze bitterheid doet denken aan salmiak, jodium en teer. De Nelson Sauvin geeft het bier een sterk aroma van overrijpe mango en versterkt de teerachtige aroma’s (petrotonen). Volgens enkele proevens doet het denken aan een Islay malt whiskey qua aroma. Hoofdsmaak is gebrand bitter

Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, licorice, soy, hint of smoke, hops. Taste is bitter sweet, roasted malts, chocolate, hops, licorice. Dryish ending with a roasted, hoppy bitter, aftertaste. Not bad.

A very good Imperial Stout. Pours a thick black glass of beer. I was very much impressed by it’s smokey and bitter aroma.

Benzai (9771) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black color, slightly creamy light brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, liquorice, iron, but also a hint of some kind of very sweet fruit. Taste malts, maybe a slight hint of smoke but I don’t really get it, although I don’t mine cause I’d probably dislike it anyway. Decently bitter, decent body, decent carbonation.

Douberd (3051) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
(Jopen Holy Smoke) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9.5% Totally black colour on the body with half a finger of dark brown head, thick and creamy, with good retention for its size, leaving medium lacing behind. Subtle smoke on the aroma, chocolate,hints of vanilla. More smoke on the taste but still not as much as I expected. Heavy roasted malts on the finish, coal. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Hmm, tasty beer but somehow it doesn’t fit by the imperial stout profile.

Charcoal black with a very slight beige tint in the foam. Smoked malt and iodine on the nose. Taste is like the bottom of a fire pit with some chocolate and liquorice that fell in.
