Et øl med en skarp ubestemmelig smak. Noe skarp på smak og skarpere på ettersmak. Et godt øl til riktog rett. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Poured from 2011 bottle, pours pitch black with a pretty thick light brown head and lacing in the glass, aroma is of dark chocolate with a good amount of sweetness and malt, the flavor has a nice chocolate front with some of the peat and smoke in the finish, the abv is pretty well hidden, doesn’t blow me away but is still pretty solid.

Picked up at the bottle shop at De Molen many manny months back. The 33cl bottle pours with a deep darkness that supports a two inch tall mocha colored head. The aroma is full of malt balls and melted chocolate with a bit of fudge, toffee, dark roasted malts and is a sliver of peat too. Nice! The taste pokes a peatiness at you first before chocolate and malt balls and coffee and dark roasted malts try to intercede amid the peatiness and slight spicy black licorice note. Terrific peaty addition to this Imperial Stout where you’re left with a pleasing creaminess into the after taste.
