2011 April waxed bottle. Pours dark brown with a dark tan head partially lasting and very thick legs. Very rich deep aromas and flavors of espresso, chocolate, molasses, soy / umami, wood. The flavor is very sweet but also plenty bitter with the umami prominent mid palate then some dark berries and wood. The texture is thick, sticky and lively. This is an incredible stout. One of the best I have had. Vells (2006) - Rīga, LATVIA - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 Deep dark, almost black with thin brown head.
Aroma.. intense roasted malts, chocolate, bit dried fruits, some ripe fruits I would say peach, licorice.. this time too much licorice for me. Alcohol quite noticeable.
Sweet with bitter warming finish. Nice composition kryon (4015) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2012

Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma dominated by chocolate, almost more milk chocolate than dark. Coffee, vanilla, bourbon barrel, dark fruit. Taste is deep chocolate and coffee with a distinct bitterness. Here it's dark chocolate again. Long, bitter finish with warming alcohol. Medium body, a tad too light for the style. Low carbonation, creamy.

Non conosco le imperial stout ma questa mi ha fatto impazzire, davvero molto molto buona! Alcol molto ben mascherato!

Poured deep, dark brown with a frothy tan head which lasted. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate. coffee and vinous dark fruit. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, flavour of roast malt with moccachino and a dry, sweet aftertaste. HermanW (1069) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2012
33 cl fles @home. Weer zo’n sterke van de molen 10%. geur is lekker. weing schuimen erg bitter. wordt geen favoriet van mij. n0mel (251) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2012
(From notes 5 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Pitch black. Light brown, compact foam that fades quickly. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla and toffee. Very nice. Flavors are roasted coffee, some chocolate and hops. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. This is a very nice imperial stout.
