3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Rerate: Well, only few months after my original rating, the beer tastes totally different. No vegetables or tobacco, but mostly roasted malts, some coffee and a lot of chocolate. This is actually a very decent imperial stout, although hardly imperial with 8%.
Black beer with quiet big light brown head. Weird aroma of tobacco, boiled vegetables, bitter coffee. Taste is just as weird (tobacco, vegetables, some bitterness and chocolate) and I’m not sure wether I like it or not. I’d probably rate this completely different if I’d taste this again. Ok body and carbo.

Strong aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, light liqourice. Flavour is roasty, lots of coffee and some chocolate. Could be a bit more thick and deep on the palate, but this is much to my liking. Well done.

33 cl bottle aqcuired in the Euro local swap. Pours almost black with a fairly large pale head. Aroma is some cocoa, vanilla and some hazelnuts. A bit to lively with the carbonation which disturbs the mouthfeel. Taste is again vanilla, toffee, some weak coffee and some cocoa.

Bottle @ De Markies. Aroma is coffee and cacao. Pours a really black color with a hazel head. Taste is sweet coffee, chocolate, mocca, baileys cream and some dark berries. Aftertaste lingers for several minutes and tastes of dark chocolate, hazelnuts and espresso. Great beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the 4e Nooderlijk Kerst - En Winterbierenfestival
Almost black, with a nice light brownish head.
Aroma: Roasted and camarlised Malts, coffee, licorice and chocolate .
Taste; Camarelised Malts and chocolate and licorice and floral as you would expect from the aroma. Still it doesn’t fall in the trap of becomming to sweet. The roastyness does show up in the finish which has subtile coffee and roasted malt tones.
Medium body, soft carbonation,creamy mouthfeel.
Overall a ok Stout.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2013 Cloudy and very dark, no head at all. Liquorice, espresso, dark sugared fruits, brandy, light smell but very strong taste. Later much more sour. Palate is medium light, no carbonation and long finish. Looks terrible, is completely flat, but tastes not as bad. Probably a bad bottle. Drank 2/3 and poured the rest down the drain.
