Röstnoten, eher geringe Süße. Mittellanger Nachhall. Gut. 10/10/9/9/10/10 Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
Coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste bitter coffee, dark chocolate, high alcohol, sweet finish. One year over time. Great evolution. jinroh (1595) - ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2016
Pours dark brown, bit of beige foam. Aroma has coffee, chocolate and roast. Taste is coming from powerful milk chocolate, bit if booze, prickly roast and dark plums. Very juicy actually. Some ashy roast in the finish.

Tap and bottle rating. Full bodied, rich, oily. Never really kicks me in the dick like a world class imp does, but still a wholly satisfying blend of two top class beerus.
