3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black colour, dissipating tan head. Vegetables aroma, paprika, roasted malts and cacao. Bit thin body, doesnít feel like 9.5% at all. Malty finish, caramel, coffee and toast. Quite OK brew, but expected a bit more. Misses body. Most brilliant name though.
(from 75cL bottle @ the brewpub, opening weekend)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
66cl Bottle shared at Van Moll. ABV 9.5% if Iím not mistaken, this was an Imperial Espresso Stout. Note: Iím not a fan of coffee beers. Black colour, thin beige head, doesnít last. Aroma of green chili, sour espresso, coffee grounds, hard roasted malts, soy sauce, hint of chocolate. Flavour is medium-sweet, espresso coffee, coffee grounds, hint of chocolate, short coffee finish. Medium-bodied, thin towards the finish. OK, but lacks some body imho.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle@Van Moll: Served in some kind of a Van Moll snifter:
Small brown foamy head/lacing which disappears quick and leaves an almost black headless beer in my glass.
Aromas of coal, deep roast, coffee, malt and coffee toast, a hint of liquorice and some soya with a tar roasty touch.
Flavours of berries, red berries, with roast dominating after 2 seconds. Bitter, coffee roast, light chalky roast, coffee beans, espresso, some chalk and wood roast and a nice light fruity touch that is a bit present in the background.
Aftertaste is roasty with coffee beans and espresso tints and light bitter.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy light oily texture.
Good beer and dangerously easy drinkable!
