COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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.

@BFGM15, Zeer vriendelijke gozer die mij kwam helpen (+1).
schenkt zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma is behoorlijk kruidig, stevige laurier, donker fruit, gebrande mouten. Smaken van laurier, weer die enorme kruidigheid, gebrande mouten, dik maar ook zacht en glad, tevens redelijk hop bittertje, mis de rookmouten een beetje, zeer sterk, redelijke body, lage co2.smaakvol en ok

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2013
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured black with a huge tan head (it did not agree with a hand pump engine). Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and caramel. Very full, smooth mouth feel. Initial flavours of molasses, liquorice and dark fruit. Turns to burnt malt, espresso and a little dark rum.

MarcoDL (2582) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2013
Whoah, this one has a lot of differentes tastes. Dry and roasted, dark fruits, rauchmalt and of course the hops. The Nelson Sauvin gives it a special touch. Make sure you take your time to recover.

sic1314 (4387) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2013
Poured a very dark reddish brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of lightly rauched sweet malt. Medium body, flavour of sweet malt and seaweed, the roasted malt is muted in this and the aftertaste, which is light smoke. Nicely done.

On tap at GBBF 2013. Jet black colour, nice thick off-white head. A fairly standard well made imperial stout, lots of deep roasty flavours, coffee, burnt toast, healthy boozy taste, long bitter finish. Nice.
