33cl, Swedish brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex Stout, roasted/woody and slightly spicy/sweet, very balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet expensive! arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Thick oily black pour with creamy off white head, aroma brought notes of slight ash, roast, nice dark fruits, hints of a nice acidic coffee bean, hints of anise as well, touch of cocoa. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, dark chocolate, and thick roasted malt into some ash, earth, slight anise, finishing bitter, dry. Abrakarl (436) - SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2013
For a imperial stout the aroma is a bit too subtle. Nothing really stands out in this stout but it?s still a solid beer. At the price I would at The moment much rather have Evil Twins "Christmas eve in a New York..." - imperial stout that is on offer here in Sweden as a Christmas beer. Both cost around 4,5 $. The Evil Twin is much more luxurious and simply on another level. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Poured an oily dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roast malt and milk chocolate. Medium to full smooth body, flavour of bitter chocolate, coffee with a slightly sweet, very bitter finish. Arve_Christian (5114) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Black color, ok offwhite foam. Roasted aromas, coffee, licorice, leather, some malt: high intensity. Full body & high complexity . Good bitterness. Very enjoyable

500ml bottle. Opaque black body. Thin oily beige head. Rather still, not much carbonation. Big coffee chocolate flavors. A touch watery, with some burnt black coffee charred tastes. A little heat. Pretty good, maybe not so well aged on my part. GRM (4020) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013

Dark brown colouerd and hazy. Unpleasent sediment, slime-like. Besides this its a great beer, roasted with faint medicine notes. Light soy-sauce too. Creamy, soft.
