4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. [thank you, skortila]
Pours completely black with a firm, staying, creamy, beige head. Lovely lacings. Heavy cold coffee aroma, plums sweetness, light vinious, chocolate, coffee liquor. Heavy roasted base. Some slight oak and spicy dryness. Low carbonation, but still fairly lively. Wonderful oily and creamy. Flavour is elegantly complex. Lots of coffee, elegantly vinious, roasted malts abound. Elegant oaky tartness helps to balance the powerful flavours. Vanilla, ginger, chocolate, hops, plums. Lovely sweetness runs through all the notes. Fantastic.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from ølbutikken.
pitch dark, huge very smooth brown head.
Aroma of cofee, bitter hops, roasted malts, caramel. the hard roasted malts and the coffee works very well together.
Flavor is cofee, hard roasted malts, load of wood, sweet syruppy flavor, dryness, damn this flavor is outstandingly good, extremely complex, while the base flavor is a super solid imp stout with coffee ,wood and whiskey notes, balanced by a complex note of dark dried fruits and other quad like flavors. The imp stout part is most of the flavor, but the quad like part adds loads of complexity and makes the beer very interesting and unique. Aftertaste is hot, sweet, woody, roasted, coffe, very long lasting.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A twist of the mind indeed! Thank you, Urbain, for this beer. Darkest black color with a small brown head. Aroma of anise, malt, and burnt espresso, like when you leave the espresso pt on the flame for too long. Flavor of licorice, malt, bitter cocoa, and earth. Dry bitter finish. Very different from batch #1, less coffee flavor. Just as wonderful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s pitch-black with a huge, brown and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, sweetness and a strange cross between chill and bell pepper. The mouth-feel is oily. The flavour is sweet with notes of sweet, slightly bitter coffee, dark fruits, light chocolate and the same cross between chill and bell pepper, but without any chili-bite. The finish is dry with a light bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and alcohol aroma. Heavy sweet roasted dark malty flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Erdig-malziger, deutlich torfiger Beginn. Die Intensität nimmt rasch zu, neben dem komplexen Malz auch die Süße, die kurz zu stark erscheint. Dann ist das Malz aber wieder unangefochtem im Vordergrund, Röstnoten, Vanille, leicht trocken. Geringe Herbe, das Bier ist trotz der Intensität weich. Komplex malziger Abgang mit angenehmen Vanillenoten, langer röstiger Abgang. Spitzenklasse! 13/15/13/14/13/14

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Black and opague. Creamy, salty aroma with coffee, licorice, hints of oak and dried fruit. Full bodied, thick on the tongue. Malty salty flavor with coffee, oak, red fruit, dried fruit, vanilla and licorice. Very sweet and alcoholic, of course, but there is enough to compensate and make this a world class beer. A massive quality brew.
