MrHangover (3305) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours an inky black beer with a very small beige head on top. Aroma of mostly chocolate, coffee and slight roast. Fairly basic but full and pure. Flavor is moderately sweet, powerful and again a big chocolate roasty base with loads of residual sugars and booze. No adjuncts or strange stuff, just another pure imperial stout. Aftertaste is long and sweet, cloying mouthfeel and almost no carbonation. Quite ok!

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!
