3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Mi-orge, Mi-houblon. Black with thin brown head. Nose is big on the malts, ever so slightly undertoning acetone, ash, plenty of spice, dark fruits, hazelnut, fresh tobacco. Mouth is slightly thin considering the nose, green, malty, liquorice, very heavily charcoaled. Thin end, with a smoky charcoal filling at the swallow. Quite solid, but the smoke disguises the subtleties.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch-black, opaque, roasted malt- chocolate bitter, uncompromising imperial stout, extremely smooth and velvety, with absolutely no hints of alcohol at 9% and no residual cloying sweetness. Took me 2 attempts to get into this one’s slow blossoming taste variety but the 2nd 75cl bottle (bought at the brewer’s MiOrge MiHoublon in Arlon) had me hooked for the rest of the evening/night. World-class, not for beginners.
