Opaque black beer, small tan head. Milky malt and a little sourness on the nose. Light palate, mild carbonation, slightly dry. Sweet and light dark malt. Aniseed, coca cola and a little chocolate. Some yeast. All joins up seamlessly in to quite a unique beer. Tasty dark treat!

A: The pour is dark brown in color with a finger or so of tan head. S: An intensely fruity nose to this beer. Lots of pineapple and fresh orange juice. There’s definitely alcohol present (and not surprising at 11%). The roast and chocolate notes are not as prevalent as in other beers of the style. T: Very intense tropical fruit flavors to this beer. Pineapple, mango, papaya, grapefruit, and orange give an intense fruitiness and a mild sweetness. Not super bitter, but there is a nice bite to the beer. A mild roasted malt flavor and a bit citric feeling. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: I personally found this to be a fantastic beer. An amazing fruitiness to it, just a little bit on the boozy side.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted dark fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded almost a standout.

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of molasses, preune, toffee, earthiness and sherry. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of toffee, earthiness, prune, sherry and tobacco with a smooth warming lingering tobacco finish.

Bottle @ home via trade with deyholla, I believe. Thanks! Pours a bit murky black appearance with a dark brown head. Chewy herbal yeasty, dark chocolate, somewhat spicy, minty/piney aroma that really has the house character of the Kuhnhenn yeast. Tangy, orange zesty, fairly citrusy, Belgian chocolate, chewy yeasty, minty, light toffee flavor. Honesty, this tastes pretty strong but is super smooth for the 11% abv. Also, pretty unbelievable that this has held up so well. I’ve had this bottle for near a year and god knows how long deyholla had it before me, but it’s still super tasty.

I thought an understated imperial stout. Smelled roasty, very balck with brown head. Would pass as a very decent RIS. Not thick, but chocolate, rich malt.Mouthfeel average. Good drinkability. Perfect carbonation.Peter Chiado’s bottle from the brewery.

Bottle thanks to FlandersNed! Pours black. Tan head. Nose/taste of black licorice, hops, black malt and cocoa. Creamy mouth feel. Slightly chalky finish. Medium body. Solid.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
Deep brown pour with a fast-fading head. The aroma is sort of sweet and spicy. A sort of black licorice character and a touch of a minty character as well. A leathery sort of character as well. A little bit of soft character and some decent earthiness. Cocoa and some earthy bitterness. A lovely brew actually. A little bit of peppery ethanol up front but it fades quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-11-16. Dark brown body with a nice tan head. First smell of ethanol blows off, sweet fruity malt, alcohol. Flavour is similar, sweet malt, sugar, herbal character, warming alcohol. 7+ Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Pretty decent, but just a bit too boozy for my preference. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

12oz bottle pours mahogany with deep copper edges and mocha head. The aroma is spicy hops, spicy yeast, cherries, some dark roastiness and a modest level of Belgian yeasty esters. The taste is complex to say the least and is a yummy sort of complexity that is a bit tough to put words to. I get some dark roasted malts, a thicket of citrus hops, some pine hop resin and then it becomes more and more spicy hop bitterness mixing with molasses. Different, complex, good.
