Wow, very very nice! I notice a slight bit of salt in there, very good punch and full bodied taste without being overwhelming. A full aroma of licorice, molasses, soy and maybe very nuanced smell of leather/smoke. One of my favorites!

Color marrón oscuro. Espuma beige muy breve. Aroma tostado y de licor. Sabor de café, licor, muy dulce, con predominio de la avena y alcohol muy marcado. Amargor moderado, aunque se prolonga bastante. Buen cuerpo y baja carbonatación. Muy buena, aunque un poco dulce para una Imperial Stout.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2015
Tap @ 1st Anniversary Kaapse Brouwers Festival. Almost black. Shy maltaroma. Malty sweet roasty salty flavor with a hint of licorice. Slightly alcoholic. Decent beer, but this brewery can do better.

caesar (5764) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Tap @ Kaapse Fest, small sample. Dark brown color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of roast, licorice, coffee. Slight bitter from malts, slight spicy licorice, oatmeal cookie. Bit too much on the licorice and roast for me. Like it to be more creamy and chocolatey. Decent RIS though.

Draft at Kaapse beer festival. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roast, malt, caramel, dark chocolate, toffee and licorice. Flavour is light heavy sweet and over moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Maakun (1464) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Tap at Kaapse festival. Black with beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Marzipan, dried fruits, sweet chocolate, quite herbal with French herbs and some mint, fresh tropical fruits. Very sweet with soft roasted bitter finish. Full bodied. Very nice fruity RIS

dambor (164) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Pours pitch black with small head. Aroma: raisins, dried fruit punch, dark chocolate, coffee with milk, vanilla. Taste: chocolate, raisins, vanilla, some rum taste, nice warming in the palate. Very big, thick beer, but perfectly balanced - not too sweet, not too dry as for an imperial stout. Fantastic.

huineman (395) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Pours pitch black with thick tan head. Intense aromas of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, soy sauce, black plum, blackberry, rucola, cola... Very powerful and creamy. Silky, pungent, very well balanced between sour, savoury, sweet and bitter. Very long finish. One of the greatest.
