Moolesen (329) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Black with a light brown head. Aroma has coffee, hints of peat and some freshness. Very nice flavour with subtle wood but strong coffee taste and generously hopped. I like this one! Long finish with the bitterness staying long. Nice...

JanEric (1131) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2015
Aroma has vanilla, malts, smooth, with rasted or smoked malts. Dark brown, dense off white head. Lots of carbo. Taste nice with a hint of coffee, some herbs, and a bit grassy, maybe from the hop. Fairly bitter, a slow sipper beer. A bit to the far side of bitterness, maybe too bitter for the style.

33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a small slightly off-white head. Medium body with low carbonation. Medium sweetness with ditto bitterness. Coffee, caramel, roasted malts, oak and herbs. Nice, but I’ve had much better BA imperial stouts.

2012 bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, roast and a hint of oak in the aroma. Malty roasty flavor with oaky notes, warming alcohol, bourbon and licorice. Thinnish, alcoholic, but not bad.

ManVsBeer (5968) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Keg @ Wigan Central, Wigan. Hazy dark brown with a creamy-bubbly off-white head. Certainly strong tasting and the spirit infusion is evident, but there’s plenty of smoothness in its texture and milky roasted malts to be enjoyed too.

flesje van Secret Sinterklaas 2014, @dEnk, bedankt !
schenkt bruin met rode gloed en met enorme bruine koolzuurkraag, Aroma van hout, gerookte mout, vanille, koffie, laurier, chocolade, vanille en koolzuur. Smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bittertje, zeer sterke smaken, matige donkere fruiten, redelijke hout tonen, caramel, alcoholisch. medium body, glad van textuur, afdronk lang bittertje. maar vind de BA smaken in het biertje iets tegen vallen, net alsof het bier op wat houtsnippers heeft gelegen, of dat deze zijn meegekookt, niet zo stevig als gehoopt. voorlopig vind ik het aroma alsnog beter dan de smaak,
Earlier Rating: 5/5/2013 Total Score: 2.6
Bruin/zwart ondoorzichtig met mega schuimige kaki kraag Aroma: vanille, hout, mout, koffie, chocolade maar alles vrij beperkt Smaken: medium kandij zoet, gedroogd fruit, koffie, medium bitter Medium body, glad, laag co2, droog in de afdronk, niet het bier waarvan ik had verwacht dat het wat extra's zou brengen, jammer
