4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Holy crap this is good. About one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted in my life. It’s aroma refers to coffee and dark chocolate. But most of all I was extremely surprised by it’s brandy-like aftertaste which is nothing less than a true treat. Someone put a lot of love into this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle shared in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a white head which lasts throughout. Aroma is very toasty and moderately powerful. Taste is dusted dark chocolate and coffee balanced well with some sweetness but the bitterness is there in the finish. Mouthfeel is perfect for the style and lends itself to being easy drinking particularly for an imperial stout.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent, Belgium! Imperial Stout but not like the Imperial Stout from Emelisse, Struise or Mikkeller. Not very malty and pours with a high volume of brown head but the head is not again like the others, dense. Aroma reminds me Belgian Strong Ale :-) Not the aroma I’m expecting from an Imperial Stout
