"A dry roasty beer. Pretty big all around with lots of roast, coffee and bitterness. Little to the hops except grapefruit rinds and bitterness. Pretty good beer but there are better. Huge head from a normal pour."

cardang (10) - oudenburg, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Zeer speciaal bier. Voor mij smaakte het bier helemaal anders dan dat het eruit zag. Het ruikt gebrand is donker en smaakt hoppig. Zeker een aanrader.

minutemat (1765) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
75cl bottle @ Midlands Tasting Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Been on my ’to try’ list for a while this, and finally get to open at such a prestigious occasion. Pours very dark brown with creamy tan head. Big thick bitter hoppy taste with dark coal, pine and additional thick chocolate malts. Much more bitterness than I was expecting. Great stuff.

Buczer (252) - Pabianice, POLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle 330ml, pours dark brown, cloudy with stable off-white head. Intense aroma of coffee mixed with some herbal and resin notes of hops, and a little bit of alcohol. Medium bitterness, some chocolate and coffee notes. Also some alcohol noticable. Suprisingly light body as for imperial, soft carbonation, nice bitter finish.
