Way too heavy taste and odor of alcohol. This beer is not drinkable. Unfortunately, that is. Heavy aftertaste too. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. Klimaet (2594) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2015

Dark brown/black with a good chocolate head. Aroma is liquorice, de Molen yeast, dark fruits, blackcurrant, anise. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, smooth and complex on the palate. Taste is liquorice, blackcurrant, chocolate, anise, subtle hint of leather. ciocanelu (2535) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 17, 2016
Pitch black color with no head. Aroma has big bourbon and peated whiskey. Taste is also slightly peated but mostly has sweet bourbon, caramel and the finish is bitter with dark coffee flavor. Medium body with the right amount of carbonation for the style. Really good version of H&V.

0,33 l bottle from De Molen Shop, courtesy of Balazs, thanks!OldMrCrow (2439) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured rock oil, small but stable beige head. Very intensive aroma with roasted grains, burnt wood, alcohol and plum, ash and overriped fruits. Huge, oily body with caramel, whiskey, roasted grains and burnt wood. Fruity, demonish beer that shows us the temptation.
Bottle from a Seattle tasting. Molasses, a bit of spice. Delicious dark toffee. Hints of raspberry. Interesting imperial stout; I like it. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from DeMolen. Dark brown almost black with a small, light tan head. Aroma of cocoa, whiskey, vanilla, roasted malt and alcohol. Flavor is boozy up front with plenty of chocolate, bitter roast and oak. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a long hot finish. Very similar to the other BA versions. Nische (2238) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy tan head. Palate is soft, viscous and a little dry. Sweetish dark malt with rich coffee and a touch of alcohol spice. Light brandy liqueur before the smooth dry finish. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Deep brown pour with khaki head. Some lacing, even the next day. Roast, chocolate, dark fruit; coffee, soft vanilla and oak. Light marshmallow. Sweet, with warming, moderately bitter finish. Full body, slick texture. Overall: on the mellower side of treatments for this beer, but a nice sipper.
