brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Reeks of alcohol, roasted malt, and licorice. Mostly alcohol. Mild brine note, some dark chocolate, and coffee. The taste is a bit harsh and unpleasant. A lot of booze, ash, and char. Some coffee, mild chocolate, and a heavy roasted malt character.

Werckmeister (1077) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 22, 2015
0,33l from bottle at känguruh. BB 12/2016. Almost black color, medium big tan head. Smells malty sweet, candy, plums, rather light smell. Full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Served a bit too cold. Tastes malty sweet, plums, light roast, light soy. Finishes with plums and light roast and sweetness. Decent enough, overall a bit boring though. Okish. 7, 4, 6, 3, 13

Kleine schuimkraag op een zwart biertje.Chocolade en ziltige smaak voeren de boventoon. Niet echt mijn biertje dit maar ook niet vies.

Het eerste wat mij op iel toen ik het bier inschonk en er aan rook: een stout met een typisch Belgische geur: mout en gist. Verder komt daarna toch iets ziltigs naar boven, ik wil het geen oestersmaak noemen (vind ik heel lekker) maar bij genoeg fantasie.... Het vreemde aan dit bier is dat het er uitziet als een stout, maar dat het smaakt naar een tripel. Vol van smaak, lekker, er is niets mis mee, maar de smaak en de omschrijving en het uiterlijk zet mij iedere keer op het verkeerde been.

Nee. Nee. Nee.... helemaal geen bier voor mij.... Persoonlijk vind ik de smaak te heftig. De oesters overheersen en dit verziekt voor mij het bier. Voor het eerst in alle jaren dat we samen zijn dat mijn vrouw mijn glas overpakt en leeg drinkt. Zij (geen actieve bierdrinker) vond hem lekker.....

Kauge (846) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle. Clear, mahogany brown. The massive head’s light beige with rather good retention and thick lacing. Chocolaty sweet on the nose with a certain Belgian spiciness and perhaps burnt caramel and dates. Sweet, very sweet, but it’s not an overly yucky sweetness, but rather refined and not smack in the face. Nougat? Toffee? Dates? Some alcohol detectable. Soft in the mouth, thin but active carbonation (accentuated by a herbal hoppy finish), smooth going, easy drinker. Medium, even low medium body. Comes off as slightly watery at some points. No way this is an Imperial Stout. What ever it is, it’s rather enjoyable. No oysters though :)

karpik (285) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Aroma of chocolate and spices. Pours dar brown with tall tan head, which reduces to small in a little while. Taste is too sweet for me, with little booze. There is chocolate, some spices, low bitterness. Overall it is not an imperial stout at all. It is like a mix of imperial porter with dubbel.

A strong dark beer, more rich in taste then most other dark Belgian beers a good alternative to double beers. Slightly too sweet or a bit too much alcohol for the overall brew. Good to drink more often.

bonkiedeaap (463) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is very dark brown and has a nice and stable cream colored head. The aroma is sweet with tones of caramal, nougat, raisins and a light bitterness with chocolate and a little alcohol. The taste is light to medium bodied, a little watery and with some tones of chocolate. Not a very good balance. The finish is dry and light bitter.
