11.2oz bottle not sure of the vintage, but it has a bow tie on the neck. pours out a thick rich black topped with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, light smoke, pit fruit, molasses, a little tart. Taste was just as the aroma with a nice smooth body.

puren (885) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - FEB 11, 2017
PREZENTACJA: czarne ze wściekłą szybko opadającą do obrączki pianą, nie zdobi szkła;
AROMAT: metaliczność wiedzie prym, poza nią jest nuta mleczna i czekoladowa paloność;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie ku niskiemu, wysoko nasycone, mocno się po nim odbija, lekko wykleja podniebienie;
SMAK: bardzo krtka kawa ze śmietanką przechodzi w słodką czekoladę a następnie w czekoladę gorzką, krtka wyraźna palona goryczka, posmak gorzkiej czekolady;
OGLNIE: przyzwoity stout, ale w odbiorze strasznie przeszkadza bardzo wysokie nasycenie, aż nosem idzie.

papat444 (129) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
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.

vincentvega72 (537) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Mooi donker bier met overweldigende (hier hebben de Dolle Brouwers echt wel een patent op) crmekleurige parelende schuimkraag. (Te) veel koolzuur. Aroma en smaken van drop, anijs, kruidenlikeur, mout, kandijsiroop. Mooie zoete afdronk, misschien een klein beetje t zoet. Voor de rest een prima bier.

Lele (477) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2017
Imperial stout dai chiarissimi e sentori di cacao, cioccolato, caff e liquosori. Leggermente acida e pi scorrevole di quanto si pensi. Molto bella allaspetto, non particolarmente intensa per al naso.

Pinta en la Cervecera 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 9, ese es para m su punto debil, de todas maneras me llevo un muy buen recuerdo sobre todo de su aroma.

gegwilson (3575) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
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.

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.
