Flaske: Kulsort øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Heldigvis er der lidt karbonering. Smagen kunne være helt i top, med en del røgmalt der kunne spille perfekt med brændtheden og chokoladen. Men desværre fungerer det ikke optimalt. Smagen og duften er en lille smule off. Desværre. hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011
bottle brewed 11 april 09 at dak’s on 8/14/10.
orange-yellowy tinted brownish black with no head.
wow! the aroma!... meaty/jerky, yeast, ash, roast, chocolate, wood, rubber, smoke, black olives and tangy barbecue sauce.
the flavor is a lot alike.... ashy charcoal, umami and vanilla mix in there as well as a tartness on the finish. the aftertaste lingers as chocolate covered briquettes. it is a touch on the sweet side but the ash and alcohol really help keep the slickness in the medium body in check. 9/4/9/4/18+ hirigalzkar (3292) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. A quite agressive imperial stout (dark chocolate, licorice etc.) with
lots of smoked, sausage kind of notes. The smokeiness is too heavy in my opinion and hides the other qualities of the beer. RasmusOtt (2912) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2011
Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is medicine, a bit soy, leather, candy, fruit concentrate, sweet berries. Taste is vinous, intense sourish, spicy, extreme sour berries, caramel and roasted malts. interesting Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
Tap @ De Molen. Pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige almost brown head. The aroma of coffee with vanilla, sal ammoniac with chocolate. The taste of coffee, sal ammoniac and vanilla. It starts a little sweet, moving to dry bitter. Alcohol notes in the back. The aftertaste is gentle sweet with coffee bitter and notes of vanilla.

29/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al De Molen beer festival. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, con schiuma color cappuccino, liquida e poco persistente. L’aroma è di una intensità davvero fuori dal comune, con note di malti tostati, caffettose, di cioccolato, vaniglia, e alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è potentissima, caffè, cenere, vaniglia, alcol, note legnose, devastante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione corretta. Imperial Stout sorprendente, di una intensità straordinaria, terribilmente strong. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
On tap at Jan’s Masters Division Celebration, 2nd August 2010. Near black with very little head. On the nose and in the mouth it is a wonderful blend of alcohol, oak, red wine, burnt caramel & Belgian yeast. The strength provides a firm but not fierce heat. Deserves to be savoured slowly. The pure expression of what an Imperial Stout should be. Rosebud butternuts (2398) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
bottle at the CCB tasting. poured thick black. aroma and flavor were super char ashy with notes of peat. body was thick and oily. NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 Had this one @ CBF 2010. Black colored brew. Wonderful brew! All kinds of smooth flavors balanced together in perfect harmony in both aroma and flavor. Very smooth malty tones, coffee, dark chocolate, vanille, some wood. All blended perfectly.
