3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 9.1%. The aroma seems a little fruity at first, but turns roasted. Black colour, seems unclear. Very small brown head. The flavour starts off sweetish and creamy, turns salty and quite roasted. The mouthfeel is a little thin for the style, but not a real problem. Reminds me of a Danish Baltic porter.

330ml bottle thanks to McTapps. Pours black with medium tan head. Brilliantly balanced RIS, pretty much spot on with a good blend of chocolate & roasted malts, smooth and strong on the palette.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown black, with a wooden tinge. Good-sized, fairly thick, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is some smokiness in the beginning. A lot of dark, fruity maltiness later. Dark fruit, some toast, malt bread. Light liquorice and roast, light earthiness and raisin. Taste is very malty, some roast, some liquorice, lightly alcoholic. Dark fruit, very malt-forward. Dark malt, not roasted malt. Fairly medium with medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bij fritz in binz uit een fles. Zwart met een bruine schuimkraag. Geur is bosvruchten met geroosterde mout. Smaak is zoet, whisky likeur met caramel en stroop en chocolade melk in de afdronk. Aangenaam imperial stout, al heb ik hem zelf liever iets meer in de bitter dan zoet.
