COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed at Proefbrouwerij De ReuZ Stout, regionaal verkrijgbaar als Reuzenbieren Peer Poarel, is qua type een Belgian Imperial Stout. Een stout is vaak pikzwart , imperial wil zeggen dat het veel alcohol kent. De Imperial Stout was vroeger namelijk bedoeld voor de Russische tsaar, werd gebrouwen in Engeland en kon dankzij het hoge alcoholgehalte de lange reis doorstaan. Belgian is toegevoegd omdat deze stout een combinatie is van een stout met een Belgische trappist. Het bier kent een uiterst complexe smaak met toetsen van koffie en drop. Het heeft prachtig donker stevig schuim en geeft een warm alcohol gevoel. De nasmaak is lang, droog, bitter, moutig en kruidig. Dit bier moet u ooit gedronken hebben. U zult geen last hebben van de 9,5% alcohol.

Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts strong-malty, modest roasty with woody notes. Mild-fruity like raisins. Well balanced finish. Almost mild for an Imperial Stout. Nice!

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.

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.

750 ml bottle. Dankuwel Euphemos! Black... almost... Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head. Roasted malt, berries, liquorice, mild bitterness and some herbal notes in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, bitterness, mild sweetness, alcohol and herbal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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?

Bosskie (473) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
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.

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.
