3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is dark fruits with some chocolate and light roasted grains and perhaps a hint of licorice. Taste is a dark fruit and light chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain and pine hop bitterness finishing with a hint of licorice and alcohol. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A little bit too fruity for the style, but otherwise a pretty solid brew.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 31st August 2013
Opaque dark brown beer with a massive tan head. The head is super tangy, almost sour. Smooth palate. Very tangy dark malts, again touching on sour. Whispers of dark chocolate and coffee. Sourish dried fruits. Finishes semi dry. Much too tangy, makes me wince! 2.5

I think the first bottle I had must of been infected. A second one is airy and semi dry. Fairly smooth dark malts, whisper of roast. Light touch of dark chocolate. Airy dark malt cream. Light coffee cream. Finishes smooth. Not bad at all and a country mile better than my first bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. colore marrone scuro, opalescente, schiuma beige scura abbastanza fine di consistenza cremosa. profumo abbastanza complesso. riconosco caffè, liquore vinoso (sherry), malto torrefatto, lieve erbaceo del luppolo, frutta secca, secondo me mandorla e nocciola sono più evidenti.
Gusto un po’ meno fine. da subito liquoroso ed alcolico, poi amaro da tostato/torrefatto. Nel retrolfattivo esce una punta che quasi gratta in gola, ricorda il sapone. Mi ha un po’ urtato, ma poi svanisce e diventa un amaro più classico. scaldandosi avverto noce fresca e mandorla. Corposa fino al pastoso. abbastanza armonica, ho bevuto R.I.S più equilibrate.

Mooie bruinzwarte kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt naar gebrande mouten, koffie en iets hop. Smaakt vol en zoet, gebrand en iets zurig.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - bottled 12/03/13, from Slijterij Wijnhandel Acht Zaligheden, Maastricht, 20131018) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized, dense and lightly brown. Aroma had roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate and piny hops. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, burnt malts, pine, mildly liquorice, some ash and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was ashy, burnt and bitter and finally hoppy. Aroma was really nice but the taste was too burnt until the final surprising hop bite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Cereal, Leather, subtle herbiness develops an alcohol nose over time. Slight soapy smell.
Appearance: Black, opaque, no head.
Taste: Sour, slight edge of coffee in the end.
Palate: light-bodied, with a creamy/oily texture. Low carbonation and a bitter roasty finish.
Overall: Thin and sour, not the big, rich and chewy imperial stout that I had hoped for.
