Very dark, black even, with a small brown-tan head that recedes into a thin ring quickly. Dark fruit, chocolate aroma with roasted malts as well. Thick mouth feel. Roasted taste, lots of coffee, with solid bittering in the middle and finish.

This is a really good imperial stout. I think it is probably better from a bourbon barrel, but I was really impressed with the blend of malts and hops that create a very chocolatey and rich beer that is bold in flavor, but easy on the palate. This is an imperial I can drink, which takes away, but also adds.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2017 Zwart stroperig bier met dikke mokka-kleurige schuimkraag. Aroma van (gebrande) mout, toast, espresso. Dik en vol van smaak met goeie (koffie)bittere afdronk. Noten, pure chocolade, bitter, beetje rook. Prima stout.

Bottle into a snifter showing pitch black with light latte colored lacing around the edges. The nose shows a lot of roasted malts but seems to be mixed with enough bready malts to give a slightly clean grain edge. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated but very smooth bodied. Strong flavors of cleanly roasted malt with an equally intense black coffee edge. Bitterness is black coffee without any unpleasant toasted bitterness. Completely dry but extremely well balanced flavor in all aspects. There’s literally not a note out of place. Very well hidden ABV with barely any heat.

adasko (2232) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 11, 2017
11% abv. Huge roasted, coffee, chocolate, ash aroma, with a touch of alcohol, plums, Port wine. It’s harsh and aggressive but deep and smooth in the same time. Awesome. Taste seems to be a bit more calm, super well balanced. Tons of coffee and chocolate with super pleasant note of sherry, cherry in alcohol. Very nice roasted, chocolate finish with very moderated bitterness. Smooth, velvety in the mouth. Full bodied but might be even more thick and dense. Great beer!
