Draught @ pré-ZBF 09 @ Alvinne: Alvinne-Struise beerfest.yespr (48876) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy - creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, dark chocolate, fruity, smoke - peat. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - sticky, carbonation is soft. Very delicious and well balanced ;o)) 
From tap. Pours pitch black and with a small tan head. Dense malty and hardroasted maty with a solid dark chocolate aroma. Smooth chocolate malty and light smoked flavoured with a light bitterness from hops and roasted acidic malty. Subdued alcohol presence, surprisingly as there is 12% of it - but I guess the yeasty fruity flavours, dense malt and some sweetness really takes the alcohol burn out. Dense roasted maty flavoured. Light fruity touch into the far finish. Fantastic! Ungstrup (38867) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2010

Bottled (from Ölkonsortiet). Close to pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is liquorice, roasted malts, alcohol and some caramel. Flavour is roasted malts, alcohol, sweet rye and lots of toasted notes. Also dark dry fruits. Complex and very pleasant to drink Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Urbain at the schoolhouse, tasted with the 3 beer students, Kenny and Savannah. Thank you Urbain!
Very black (duh). No head. Scant lacing.
Aroma starts with whisky, but also dark fruits and licorice.
Flavor starts with coffee then progresses to plums, raisins, and finishes with burnt espresso.
Good body, slightly lighter than expected.
Incredible. Simply incredible. Can’t wait for pre-ZBF 2010. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2011

13% version. Opaque black stout, frothy chocolate coloured head. Smooth palate turning creamy and frothy. Light and airy. Incredibly rich, chocolate, sourish malt, red fruits, nutty and woody flavours. Even a dash of brandy in there. All comes together in this beautiful soft beer. Outstanding.

Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Very black, small beige head. Sweet and roasty. Ashy and a bit fruity with notes of asphalt. Full bodied wit chocolate and brandy. Intense, but staying short of becoming inky. Everything fits together fine, but this concept of über-imperial Belgian stout does not really do it for me.
