bartlebier (1803) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2012
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.

75cl bottle. Pours a pitch black liquid with medium tanned head. Nose : tart, wood, wet laundry, cheese, toffee milk coffee. Sip ; medium density body with creamy texture. Dark chocolate sweet with coffee and nuts flavor, creamy coffee. Some bitter hops on the end. The aftertaste is a mix of aromatic hops and burned toast or caramel with the after feeling of sweet coffee.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - APR 21, 2012
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.

Deu (716) - Nantes, FRANCE - NOV 6, 2013
