3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thnx to Secret Sinterklaas 2012. Had this for a long time!! Pours a jet black beer with a nice layer of brownish, creamy head on top. Aroma has loads of coffee, licorice, some yeasty presences as well. Flavor is quite sweet with a big base of licorice in there, accompanied by some bitter spicy touches. The alcohol is present, but suits the beer well. Finish is bittersweet and quite dry, low level of carbonation. Decent Imperial Stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate, liquorice, hint of dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate roasty bitter finish. Decent Stout, but not very memorable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Impy with yellowish head and practically black colour. Strong aroma of coffee powder, bitter chocolate, brambleberries, black pepper, liquorice, dates. Red berries and candied fruits in the onset, typical granular mouthfeel, deep and pretty complex dark maltiness, chocolatey and increasingly roasted bitter towards the end. Stereotypical for the style, but if this is a style you like, very enjoyable. Wasn’t this brewed at the ’Proef’brouwerij initially?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black, frothy beige head an lots of yeast chunks floating around.
Smell is liquorice coffee with a wholesome bready background. Some leather and woo, subtle chocolate and resin. Organic with a subtle fruity sweetness.
Round full taste, watery with subtle sweetness and sourness. Perfectly balanced. Slightly smokey, with a nice chocolaty dry finish. Long creamy aftertaste.
A subtle stout focused on a refined balance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes like a Belgian imperial stout. Has the roasted malt, but also a lot of yeast. The beer is a bit too sweet as well, which is a shame.The herbs are nice, but I like a IS to be more aggresive.
