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.

Alengrin (2180) - BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
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 (416) - 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.

MarcoDL (2285) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
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.

rikstar (823) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
0,33l fles, zwart bier met een groffe crème schuimkraag, bruine gistdeeltjes dwarrelen door het glas. Geur is gebrande mout smaak is beetje romig en vrij zoet met al de sinaasappelschil en cacao. Aardige stout al is deze redelijk zoet

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier mit schöner beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Kaffee, schokoladig, dunkle reife Früchte. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, schokoladig, Kaffeebohnen, leicht alkoholisch.

330ml bottle (HBF2014, Saturday)
Lovely sweet estery aroma, good roast base. Plenty of esters in the retronasals. Mellow roast. Light palate, pleasant carbonation. No sign of 9.5%, I thought it was under 6% - respect for that! Perfectly placed level of roast and influence of burntness, no harshness at all.

Hermod (3371) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
33cl bottle @Helsinki Beer Festival 2014. BB 12/2018. Poured near black with a thin brown head. Aroma has licorice notes and roasted malt. Flavor is similar with licorice on top. Quite malty brew. Roasty, and gets abit salty at the end. Hint of coffee as well in the finish. Basic, simple stuff. Surprisingly thin for this ABV.
