Imperial stout d’autore! Colore nero soia ed schiuma inesistente. Al naso molto complessa con note di soia, caffè, cioccolato, liquore, radici e spezie. In bocca equilibrata tra dolcezza, amarezza ed alcolicità. Nel palato una splosione di sapori concentrati in un corpo denso e grasso che finisce in una lunga e persistente aromaticità retronasale. Si tratta di una birra magnifica ma dificile da bere. Comunque un capolaboro! Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
37,5cl bottle at Gainsbar in Kortrijk - Belgium. Pours dark dark. Fantastic aroma! Shouldn’t characterize this beer with denominations, it’s one of a kind! Reminds me of some very old matured beers I tasted years back. Hell yeh! BrewTom (661) - - JUL 14, 2014
Smells like a light engine oil which is a hint of what is to come. A dark mixture of bitter chocolate & coffee with a sweet taste that is well balanced with some bitter hops. The long woody finish is extremely pleasant. Given this is a blend of three beers this a perfectly balanced beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 -15,2%. Tasted in the city of gold, Johannesburg- pours pitch black with little reddish head. Huge aroma of dark fruits, roasted, burnt, coffee, port wine, vanilla, chocolate and some alcohol. Very fruity, vinous and burning palate. Aftertaste is port wine, cherry, dark fruit, burnt, vanilla, oak and some alcohol. Lingering dry chocolate and fruity alcohol finish. Nice alcohol burn in the stomach. Overall: wow. What a nice beer. The aroma could be a little more in your face, but this small problem compensates by a wonderful mix of dark fruity port notes and roasted malt. After a long time without a nice imperial stout, it poured directly into my hearth. Marstonlad (976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
As 15,2 %, bottle from Edinburgh. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of solid roasty maltiness, licorice, vanilla and a touch of whiskey. Taste is rich, long and complex; it moves gracefully from initial sweetness to drier roastiness and a late dry, bitter finish. This is slow and potent stuff, has to be sipped slowly. A full body with a nearly flat carbonation. A great strong Imperial Stout.
