@Zythos Festival 2014. Black beer with a beige head, medium duration. Heavy, dark, roasted aroma, alcohol too. Flavor is heavy, soy-sauce, coffee, sweetness too, dark notes. Syrupy, alcoholic texture.

I appreciate this experiment, but this is just too much. The alcohol burns in your mouth and stomach and makes it hard to detect the other tastes.

Abijen (1762) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Pours a pitch black beer with a nice brown head. Smells glue, roasted and rye. Tastes chocolate, coffee, roasted. Little bit alcohol. Thick body, low carbo and a sticky texture.

(draught, rating #3500) pours deep black in colour with a frothy deep brown head. aroma of roasted malts, hazelnuts, cherries and espresso, a touch alcoholic, with a light hint of sugar icing. flavour is heavily alcoholic and slightly perfumed, with a medium sweetness and additional notes of roasted malts, earth, hazelnuts, yeast and plum cake. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

On tap @ Zythos Beer Festival. Deep black with a medium fully lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is stunning! So rich and complex with tons of chocolate, caramel, smoke, roasted malt, bourbon, red fruits, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is sweet, but not nearly as much as some of the big RIS from USA. Again, this is so rich and there’s a ton of chocolate, caramel, well-integrated bourbon, smoke, fruity notes, vanilla and a heart warming finish. Full (!) body. Moderate/medium carbonation (very impressive for a 26% abv beer). Super thick mouthfeel. Wow! One of the best - if not the best - Imperial Stout I had yet, Amazingly rich and complex. The alcohol is never burning, just pleasantly warming. It’s not even nearly as boozy as Black Tuesday and some other high abv beer. It’s even "drinkable" considering the high abv. Great balance. I’m blown away by this one.

Sample glass at ZBF 2014: black beer, dark brown head, roasted coffee aroma, taste is bittersweet, roaster coffee, syrup like texture. Nice !
