Black color with a rocky brown head. Full aroma of chocolate, roast and some slight hops. Taste starts slightly sweet with bitter chocolate and proceeds to a coffee finish with some slight notes of hop. Full body.
An enjoyable stout.
33cl bottle. (Snifter). Poured black color with a huge beige head, long lasting lacing. Aroma is at first instantly recognizable as the draught milder version, but soon the roastedness kicks in along with some caramel. Very smooth, with some alcohol warmth in the finish. Flavor is caramel and roasted malt, coffee and sugar. WillemG (105) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2010
33cl bottle at home, beer tasting night. Clear black beer with average creamy head and excellent lacing. Smell is caramel, soap. Full bodied with soft carbonation, light sweetness and light bitterness. Finish is pretty bitter as well. JanEric (1246) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2010
Black, small creamy mocca-coloured head. Aroma has malts and coffee. Bitter taste, with dark chocolate, espresso. Finish could last longer imo. But a nice stout with some extra taste and palate compared to the normal version. jaspe007 (47) - Utrecht/Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle, shared with Tweeke. Like an ordinary Guinness, but better. Smells like roasted malts. Dark color, with a tiny brown head. Taste has hints of caramel, chocolate, a bit roasty. Dry after taste that lingers in your mouth with some sweetness. Medium body, fine carbonation. Very good.

Pours almost pitch black, tiny head. Smells of ash, dark coffee. Mildly assertive bubbles. Notes of coffee and burnt stuff. Dry, light bitter finish. Very pleasant drinkable beer. psilosophy (812) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 12, 2010
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur noire opaque, très jolie mousse onctueuse, tenue correcte. Arômes de café tout à fait singuliers, l’alcool est bien masqué, texture onctueuse agréable en bouche. J’ai toujours plaisir à en boire une de temps en temps. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 9, 2010
If it weren’t for the slight sour-milk aroma, this would be even higher. Looks like a great Imperial stout with a dark tan head. The strength is somewhat noticeable, a quite chewy flavor. Good stuff. Despotis (222) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 18, 2010
