2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flat dark brown pour. No head, just a couple bubbles. No lacing. Big aroma of coffee. That’s really about it, just roasted barley. Taste is a very bitter front with a tangy finish. A little more sour than anything besides Gueuze should be. Maybe it will age better?

Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a very strong bubbly head. The aroma is rich and roasted, and the flavour is very, very strongly malty with large amounts of roasted bitterness. Overall though a pretty average imperial stout.

Picked up at the bottle shop at De Molen many manny months back. The 33cl bottle, filled right to the tippy top mind you, pours a bottle conditioned too long mammoth three inch mocha head. The aroma is punctuated by the effervescent carbonation pushing up burnt malts, malt balls, chocolate and a light dark roasted coffee note. The taste is nice with dark roasted malts, some mild burnt malts, dark roasted coffee and a mineral sort of yeasty note. It gets chocolate malt balls here and there too. This is tasty stuff indeed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a huge light brown head, frothy at teh bottom, rocky at the top. The head very slowly diminishes. Body is black. Aroma contains forest or red fruits, citrus fruits, oatmeal, caramel, licorice, chocolate, coffee, roasted and burnt malts, alcohol and raisin. Flavor starts off light acidic, to go to sweet. There's light bitterness all the way, which grows stronger in the dry finish. Texture is creamy, body medium to full, carbonation soft. This beer is full of aroma's, but there's a bit too much of the roasted malts for my taste. Still, very good.

Bottle acquired via trade with Benzai! Dark onyx pour with an almost chocolate milk consistency. Toasted granola, cocoa, Starbucks, honey-baked biscuit, and molasses all present. Coats the palate well. The alcohol is invisible, definitely not distracting. Truly delicious beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml Bottle (Thanks Benzai) - Black with a foamy tan head. Interesting and distinctive aroma with notes of coffee, chocolate and some tart malt. Roasted, malty and hoppy taste with liquorice, coffee and plain chocolate detected. The taste is quite pleasant, but there is a slightly unpleasant element to the aroma which spoils it a little.

Beh a me è piaciuta tantissimo. Aroma di cioccolato, alcol, caffè e un pò di detersivo per panni. Nel bicchiere è nera con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. Riempie completamente la bocca. Liquorosa, dolce con note di cioccolato fondente, malto tostato e una reminescenza di caffè, Il tutto sopportato da un amaro luppolato. L’acol si sente e conferisce una buona rotondità. Davvero buona.
