(Bottle, 0.25 l - BB 01/12/15, courtesy of VastActiv, 20141122) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had vineousness, roasted malts and sweetness. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were vineousness, sweetness, burnt malts, vanilla and bitterness. Aftertaste had wood and bitterness. A messed up version of a good imperial stout.

Opaque black color, creamy brown head. Coffee, whisky, milky notes in the nose. Full-bodied, soft palate. Toasted malty with lactose, coffee/cocoa, alcohol but silky palate anyhow. Very good but the original is better.

Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte. Dark brown/black colour, thin layer of dark brown foam. Soft carbonation. Complex aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee, also hints of oak. Taste is good but a bit thinner than expected. Sweet/bitter with bitter finish. Good imperial stout.

stoutnick (585) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
Black pour with foam head. Aroma is quite strange - not bad or good but hard to place - maybe some dark fruits mixed with molasses? Taste is the classic nogne imperial stout. Easy going dark malt roast, dark fruits, nice sweetness. Nice medium body from carbonation. Good savoury stout.

Dagrk (35) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2014
Dark and dangerous. Tastes like tar and chocolate with the dark force to strengthen it's spirit. Very good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarcoDL (2333) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Oily black beer, with a foamy brown head. Delicious aroma of vanilla and malt. Taste of sweet cacao, oak, bitter coffee, cookie and even some hops. The aging gives the beer a layer of warming vanilla. Good one.
