rumore (322) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 8, 2016
From the bottle, at Grand Cru, Santarcangelo di Romagna, Italy. Chose this to warm up before attending a football match (its 11 degrees). Pours almost black with limited cappuccino head. Aroma is very inviting and alcoholic, with licorice, caramel, toasted malt, hints of coffee. Body is medium-thick, with stickiness and some carbonation. Taste is more sweet, but bitterness is present and somehow persistent. Finish is dry, only with some bitterness and stickiness left. This beer is filed as an imperial stout (and named both as a Belgian ale and a stout on the label. Id see this much more as a Belgian strong ale.

vincentvega72 (576) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Donkerbruin helder bier met rijke crmekleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegebt tot er een fijn laagje overblijft. Licht geroosterd aroma met geuren en smaken van chocolade, (gebrande) koffie, lichte caramel. Licht bittere afdronk. Mooie warme en droge afdronk die goed in de keel blijft plakken en blijft tintelen in de mond en op het tandvlees. Goeie stout. Enige minpuntje misschien iets te veel koolzuur en had misschien wat dikker van structuur mogen zijn.

BlackHaddock (6902) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
Shared from a bottle on 5th Feb 2016 at the 4th International Beer Swap in De bierboom, Brugge. I thought this very highly carbonated, not a gusher, but not far off. It poured a very dark brown/black, the head a lively off-beige. The nose was all about the yeast with some dark fruit esters vying with a malty chocolate trace to calm the yeasty dominance. The taste followed the aroma nicely, yeast first, dark malts second with the fruity element a poor third. Fairly dry finish but to fizzy for a Stout in my eyes.

kraddel (7288) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle . Pours dark brown, foam rises out of the bottle . In the pour its rather small though, and it dissapears completely within a minute . Smell is Sweet, copper . Taste is bit sweet, some bitterness, some very hidden coffee character from the roasted malts. Very overcarbonated . Alcohol is very hidden . Taste is balanced, complex a bit as well , but the intensity is not at all what it should be for 11 ABV . Just as well as the mouthfeel . I would have guessed this beer was about 6 ABV ... Nevertheless, an enjoyable beer.
