Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Beerlando. Pours an opaque pitch black with a frothy light brown head. Intense hard roast aroma yet with a juicy plum juice sweetness. Solid body, sweet roast, some vanilla and quite some licorice. Again juicy dried dark fruits. Some malt astringency, but pleasantly so. A very traditional and GREAT Imperial Stout. 290311

A great beer with Great Beer Buddies! Shared with Brian the Beer Pimp, Uncle Tom, Barrister Bob, Uncle Steve and the Baron of Beer, DrBayern.
Poured black, with a really nice tan head. The aroma was somewhat flowery and prefumey. That was somewhat of a surprise for a Stout, but with a Belgium you come to expect things to be different!
The flavor was that of cocoa and espresso. The mouthfeel was thick and velvety. The aftertaste left me wanting more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I drank this on tap into a tasting glass at EBF, re-reviewed from the bottle
The beer pours dark black with a dark tan head. The head is very creamy with nice retention and lacing.
The aroma is very hoppy, you can totally tell there is belgians hops in there, a belgian ipa tinge. Also roasty and just an overall richness to it. There is also some floral coffee at the end.
The taste is pretty light compared to the taste. Light coffee shows itself off first with a very floral hop finish.
The feel is decent a little on the light side, but a nice warm full finish.
Overall, this is really good. Its a pretty hoppy stout, but brings a new element to the stout. It was one of the highlights of EBF.

750 acquired via trade. Poured deep black with a moderate tan head and little lacing. Smells of chocolate, cherries, vinous notes, roast, earthy hops. Tastes roasty and toasty with huge vinous and cherry notes, caramel malt and chocolate. Pretty much a flavor explosion in my mouth. Smooth and silky on the tongue. This is one I would drink a lot of if it was around here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
opaque black pour with a quickly dissipating head. Boozy, roasty aroma and a slight spiciness representing the Belgian aspect. spice from the booze and notes of dark chocolate. Fizziness is a little over powering. finish is a huge amount of roasty bitterness that lingers forever. a huge warming feeling is felt in the stomach within minutes. this is a really good beer, but could definitely benefit from a year or so in the cellar

750 ml Pours thick black with just a ring of head and a small chunk of the cork. Doesn’t smell like much, some coffee a little funkiness but a little too cold to get a real good sniff on it. The taste is very unique nice belgian strong ale and some imperial stout notes roasted coffee some molasses but also fruit and belgian sugars. The mouthfeel is that of a imperial stout oily but the start of finish is belgian but finish is long with bitter coffee. I would love to have this one again!
