(from taster glass @ Gents Bier Festival 2015)
(Thx! for sharing) Sampled bottled @ Gents Bierfestival 2015. Black, deep mocha head. Nose is soy sauce, licorice, big roast, big sweetness underneath it, coco puffs sweetness. Taste is herbal bittern spices, licorices, blueberry jam, big sugar, light roast. Licorice & a bit grainy body. Good but not aligned with personal preferences.

Deep dark beige head over black beer. Alcoholic (rum?)-like nose over classic burnt/roasted notes; some vanilla, wood, some fruit (nectarine?). Vanilla, spirit, bit milky/diary, and mildly roasted notes. Finish is more burnt. Well-bodied, slick to oily, alcoholheat. Far from bad, and the name fits.

Bottle at gent beer festival. Pours black, nose is chocolate, caramel, fruity, taste is dry roasted, sugary, chocolate. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
Thick nearly black with big tan head. Aroma is roasty malt, licorice, chocolate and dark fruits. Licorice is a bit strong, not a flavour I love, but a decent beer, earning alcohol.

Velvet Glove pours an inky brownish black beer with a firm head of tan bubbles. Nose is alcohol and chocolate. taste is at first a bit sharp with alcohol leading but dark chocolate really comes through the middle to the end. the body is silky. liquid chocolate velvet. nice warming kick from the alcohol content as well. a very very nice imperial stout.

Aged I think 4.5 years. Muted flavour, I like bolder, but still drinkable and smooth. Much licorice character remained. hawthorne00 (4066) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle, 12C. Black with a large light tan head that lasts well. Aroma of mocha, alcohol, tar, molasses. Much sweeter and more chocolatey than suggested by the aroma. Molasses, oak, an odd but not unpleasant herbal note. There’s a little tar and coffee astringency at the end but the main chocolatey sweetness hangs around. Unfocussed stout smudged by loads of sweetness and booze. markextrae (4460) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
bottle sample, poured a dark brown colour with a slight beige head. nose of sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, char, raisins, licorice, and a clear alcohol notice in the end, some dark coffe notes, with a hint of vanilla, pretty classic imperial stout Paigeturner (101) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Multi dimensions here. Big coffe and toffee aroma with a neat Belgian yeast aroma. Flavor is big and chewy with a wonderful full body experience.finishes with some warmth that was another great dimension to it.
