A beast of a imperial stout! Nacht & Ontij matured almost a year on Cognac barrels. The beer has eased down a lot. A divine brew.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, - OCT 7, 2012
Draught @BBF’12: A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma’s are a good mix of whiskey, wood, spices, some cognac tints (though it seems to be more whiskey), coffee, some chocolate, roast and vanilla. Taste bourbon ish notes, spicy, bitter, coffee, roasted barley malts, chocolate, roast and bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter with coal, bitter, some spicy notes hint of coffee and some roasted barley malts. Low carbo, soft light oily creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Maybe it was served a bit too cold, but it was still damn tasty!

MarcoDL (5381) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2017
Nice full bottle, 5 years old. Black pour. Aroma of red grape, vinous oak, cognac booze, mild tart and coffee. Taste has strong cognac notes, with vinous red grape, oak, tannines, chocolate, coffee, mild licorice and a boozy grapey finish. This matured quite nicely. Strong tasty beer.

PotjeBier (3734) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2017
33 cl bottle (filled to the rim) @ home, bottled Sept. 2012. Black color. Light brown head, not much and quickly disappearing. Aroma’s of booze, fruit, cognac, light umami. Retronasal it’s fruit, sweet, wood, light cognac/vinous, not so boozy. Flavor is moderate sweet, chocolatey, boozy. Alcohol is warming. Body is medium. Low carbonation. Finishes with light roast, bitter chocolate. Probably a bit past its prime, but still very enjoyable.

[27/2/13] Bottle from De Molen online beershop. Dark brown body with big head. Nose is chocolate, malts, caramel, molasses. Great flavor of chocolate and plums and molasses again. Really nice and then the cognac! Spicy as well. Just really good.

stefannilssons (1582) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2015
Det här var en synnerligen trevlig sak, aromen och smaken var urtjusig och dov med toner av torkade bär, choklad och jästkultur. Balansen var fulländad och kroppen var fin den med!

EvilCat (112) - FRANCE - JUN 21, 2014
Bouteille. De molen shop. Couleur noir pétrole , col de mousse beige très éphémère , texture huileuse. Le nez est bien malté , chocolaté avec des notes de café, subtilement boisé et très légèrement tomaté. Longueur en bouche exceptionnellement longue et complexe . L'attaque est ronde et douce , légèrement sucrée . Se succèdent des belles notes de malt grillé , petites saveurs de chocolat amèr et de café torréfié, de cendre et de bois . Le tout est dominé par l'alcool et le cognac . La finale est amère , portée par le réglisse, le bois, légèrement florale et toujours cette note puissante de cognac qui s'intensifie au mesure de la dégustation. Faible carbonation. Une impérial stout savoureuse , certes peu équilibrée car dominé par l'alcool mais un vrai plaisir a boire! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
