Lively carbonation. Very enjoyable. I thought it would have lots of belgian yeast notes, as it is called a 'belgian stout', but I couldn't seem to taste much spiciness.

29-08-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their August discovery box). The looks of the beer are lovely. It’s been a while since I had a stout, and I missed it. The beer is nice and dark. On the naked eye it looks dark brown, almost black. In the light a ruby red glow can be seen. Not bad. The beer doesn’t seem to cloudy, but it is definitely not clear. On top of the beer a nice soft and creamy layer of fine light brown foam is formed. Foam retention is pretty good. After a while a thick silky smooth drape is left. Nice. The smell of the beer is very nice. It isn’t extremely strong. What I smell is good. There are some nice aroma’s of malts, giving some caramel sweet touches to the beer. There is a touch of syrup to, which is lovely. Besides this I smell bittersweet chocolate and coffee. The bitter roast aromas pair extremely well with the sweeter malt aroma’s. It is not like most Stouts, it seems sweeter, but very nice. Hops aren’t to present in the smell, accept for a nice fruity twist. Lovely smell, but slightly to mild. The taste of the beer is fuller than the smell, making it a bit better. I taste the same sweet malts, syrup, caramel, bittersweet chocolate, coffee and roast. The coffee and chocolate are remarkably pure and natural. Lovely. I like those dark and robust twists in a beer. Lovely. There also is a nice twist of hops, giving just a touch of fresh fruitiness to the beer. Not to much, but they just have that slight acidity to balance out the beer. This results in a very well balanced beer. I like it a lot. The palate is lovely. Full body, smooth texture with a slight dry character and a lovely rather full carbonation. It is nice. Especially the finish of the beer is very good. It is long, full and amazing. Loads of chocolate and coffee there, making you enjoy this beer till long after its gone. All in all, a lovely Stout, and one of the better ones around.

Pas du tout un imperial stout .. nom di dju … et cette bière avait été référencée en 2016 en tant que "belgian strong" .. Pour une fois que c’était juste, ils l’ont changée … oh, Mamy, what have they done to my song ??? .. Sont fous ces romains !!! Niveau abv de 8 %, et ebu de 55. Brassée avec belgo sapiens. Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois avant sa date. Couleur noir aux reflets violacés (ebc 120), à l’opacité forte. Mousse brun moyen, épaisse, structure ferme en haut, stable à 6 mm. Arômes de malt torréfié, pointe de candi, cake. 1ère bouche très souple, à l’entame malt/cake/café. Arrière-bouche pas vraiment fixée, sans ligne directrice, un peu fleurie (??). 2ème avec un malt agréable, mais peu typée. Arrière-bouche entre deux lignes : stout et double. 3ème à l’équilibre peu marqué, bouche entre amer et sucré (!!). Arrière-bouche qui ne trouve pas ses marques. Longueur banale, beaucoup trop sucrée, sans ampleur. Jambes huileuses, longues, collantes au milieu. Levure un peu boisée, ligne correcte. Alcool d’un bon niveau, mais totalement inefficace sur la longueur. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : au mieux un stout, au pire une double .. mais en aucun cas, un imperial stout !! (Ou bien il va falloir réviser l’étalonnage à la baisse très sérieusement !! Personnellement je n’y suis pas prêt … ). Le tigre était un tigreau … (5/3/3/3/6)

DutchDrebus (6048) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle @ home. Black colour with a small beige head. Smells roasty, dark malts, some liquorice. Tastes toffee, sweet, sugary, kinda bitter, roasty, chocolate. Unbalanced. Medium body, medium carbo. Annoyingly bitter.

lkowalkowski (464) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2017
Brunatnej barwy z beżową pianą. Drobno i średnio pęcherzykowatą. W aromacie palone słody, trochę czekolady, kawy. W smaku jak w aromacie. Może trochę wodniste jak na Stout-a.

guzgorog (900) - FRANCE - JUL 31, 2017
Belle robe brune foncée, tendant vers noir, mousse noisette à légers cratères, de très bonne tenue. Nez sur le grillé : pain toasté et café, de belles notes de cerises griottes et fruits noirs. Bouche moyennement amère, cacao et café, pain grillé, notes herbacées. Bonne carbo, alcool présent, superbe corps dense et rond, superbe longueur. Superbe petit pétrole comme je les aime.

Unclear black colored beer with a good white / beige cup. Tasted (dark roasted) malt, coffee, some chocolate, dark fruits, sweat, some bitterness in finish.

mutz (1092) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2017
Flesje van Teeuwen Tegelen. Zwart van kleur, kraag zakt weg tot een randje. Ruikt naar gebrande mout, vaag roodfruit. Smaakt bitter zoet met een neiging naar het zoet. Weinig diepgang, wordt wat saai naarmate het glas leger raakt.

minutemat (5784) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
330ml bottle from, I think, Vanuxeem. Pours black, small ring of pale tan head. Aroma chucks out some fruity notes, light roast. Taste is predominantly dark berry fruits, soft roast with fleeting coffee moments. Quite nice.
