UPDATED: SEP 27, 2016
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with a slight beige/brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Should have had way more depth for how sweet it was, but it was still great. Rather disappointing that the alcohol is definitely noticeable at the end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 660ml. Pours black with a decent off white head. Lots of coffee coming across on the nose, but there is a light sour edge also. Medium to light bodied with little to no carbonation. Slightly sour in the mouth (unsure if this is intentional) its fruity but lacks depth and complexity, not silky smooth, it’s ok but not what we expect from an Imperial Stout, bad batch?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
660 ml bottle at hoem. Pours hazy dark brown with a tiny light beige greyish head. Aroma is subtle cold coffee, vanilla, and roasted malts. The body perfect: a medium yet sweet start, mellowing and increasingly creamy towards the mid, finishing malty and a bit bitter. This makes it easily drinkable. Taste is lightly dark chocolate, but loads of toasted malts. Very nice stout, not your typical imperial overdose, but well balanced, and that is a very good thing!

Goed donker, weinig schuim. Chocola, karamel. Smaakt erg lekker. Beetje pittig, pepertje?
