Appearance: Gorgeous deep, dark brown body with ruby tinges (think cherry wood) & massive head that fills 3/4 of the glass. Smell: Berries, nut & some wood. Taste: Roasted & malty with a bit of toffee aspect to it. Mouthfeel: Complex flavors come to the fore. Burnt-like aspect with solid malt & finishes a little bitter sweet. Very creamy & smooth in the palate & some berries hidden in there. Reviewed on: 04-14-2008

Piwo czarne metne nalewa sie z obfita lekko bezowa drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora zostawia ladny lacing na szkle. W aromacie czekolada, kakao i lukrecja. W smaku slodkie z wysyceniem na zbyt wysokim poziomie (gryzie w podniebienie), sa suszone owoce i lukrecja. Pio niewpasowalo sie niestety w moj gust.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Mooi donker bier met overweldigende (hier hebben de Dolle Brouwers echt wel een patent op) crèmekleurige parelende schuimkraag. (Te) veel koolzuur. Aroma en smaken van drop, anijs, kruidenlikeur, mout, kandijsiroop. Mooie zoete afdronk, misschien een klein beetje té zoet. Voor de rest een prima bier.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2017
Imperial stout dai chiarissimi e sentori di cacao, cioccolato, caffè e liquosori. Leggermente acida e più scorrevole di quanto si pensi. Molto bella all’aspetto, non particolarmente intensa però al naso.

Pinta en la Cervecería IPA(Gijon), Color marron muy oscuro con espuma beige cremosa pero poco duradera, la nariz es su punto fuerte, lo que mas destacan son notas de ciruela pasa, cacao y un ligero recuerdo a vainila, en boca no destaca nada especialmente, cuerpo demasiado ligero para sus 9º, ese es para mí su punto debil, de todas maneras me llevo un muy buen recuerdo sobre todo de su aroma.

Bottle from brought back from Bruges. Pours almost black with a huge frothy beige head. A very lively one. Nice rich liquorice aroma. The taste has more liquorice and treacle with plenty of spice and a light sourness. I would like a touch more sweetness for the style, but still an enjoyable beer.

Scottishchris (723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle from cork and cask. Rich deep brown, craggy beige head. Big malty chocolate nose. Medium body, soft fizz. Dark fruit, prunes and brown sugar. Balanced bitter and sweet. Slightly sticky finish. Good stuff.

Bottle 33cl. @ 32GreatPower, Seville, Spain. A: Dark brown. T: Roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee, licorice.

BlazerT (1080) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Snifter. Dark brown with big, semi-thick, frothy, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is moderately to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, brown sugar and moderately bitter. Also some notes of grains, dates, raisins, chocolate and coffee. Taste is moderately bitter and moderately sweet. Some kind of acidity from the middle of degustation. Medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation, finish is malty, semi-bitter, dark fruits. Summary: Overall not that bad brew, palate could be better. Nose is too aggressive, fenol-like and Belgian-like.
