BenDover (219) - Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep ruby-brown, with ridiculous amounts of dense tan foam that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma is of roasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, maybe cherries and figs. Flavor is sweet and malty, some coffee, a noticeable alcohol burn, and turning bitter and roasty at the end.

Lilja (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av rostad malt, karamell, mörk choklad, kaffe, lakrits med toner av läder, mörk torkad frukt, honung och aska. Fruktig, fina smaker i god balans, lagom sötma, fin beska. Gott!

bonkiedeaap (580) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is very dark colored/nearly black and has a large cream colored head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is with rich hop notes, but also sweetness of caramel and roasted malts, hints of chocolate and cacao. The taste is full bodied, light sweet and is in nice balance with a light hoppiness. Further notes of cacao, coffee and roasted malts. The finish is light dry and medium bitter.

sjorsvdg (339) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Een lekkere imperial stout: zoet van karamel, pruim en kandijsuiker. Een bittertje van pure chocolade en geroosterd brood. Zeer aangenaam en goed in balans.

ciocanelu (899) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 26, 2016
Dark brown color with ruby hues, brown head. Aroma is really estery and fruity. I get lots of dark cherries. Taste starts bittersweet, like a roasty quadrupel. Estery with dark cherry liquor notes. Heavy body with medium carbonation. Not bad but it’s too Belgian for my taste.
