Bottle. Very dark brown with an average light brown head. Super rich fudge and soy with figs and light smoke and a hint of licorice, velvety rounded mouthfeel. Delicious.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Nieuwegein.
Black with a beige head. Sweet malts, coffee, some chocolate. Sweet taste wich reminds me a bit of "Haagse Hopjes' or sweetened coffee. Smooth easy-going imperial stout. Holmen1 (6861) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2018
0,33 flaske (bb. 110224) fra Kihoskh, hjemme: brunsvart helt uten skum, men med klumper. Mørkrøstet aroma og smak med kaffe, mørke sjokolader, havregryn og litt lakris. Mild bitterhet og overraskende slank munnfølelse uten antydning til kullsyre. Slank og flat, med andre ord. john44 (3544) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle. Bought Dec 2016; BB Feb 2024; Drank Dec 2017 - Opaque very dark brown in colour. Small tan head. Very malty; roasty malts, oaty, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, caramel. Fruity; dried fruits, raisins. Bit spicy. Bittersweet roast coffee and chocolate malty fruity throughout. Drinkable until the end when it poured a lot of lumpy glutinous floaters. Disappointing finish. (2017-12) ruuurd (390) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 This earthy, mouty taste of this dark pour is so tasteful. A really nice beer to end a cold evening with.

Bottle, black beer, medum head. Aroma is malt, oats. Taste is the same, quite sweet, bitter, nice one. Marko (6421) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 26, 2017
Bottle. Clear black-red body with a tiny tan head. Oily malty, dry aroma, caramel, alcohol, meh, generic strong stout aroma. Caramelly dark malt taste, mixing with a lovely chocolate note and some bitterness. Bit creamy. Tastes better then it smells. Very much a good beer. Stew41 (2139) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 18, 2017
Surprisingly easy going at 9.8% indeed almost sessionable (!) albeit served quite cold. Dark blackberry fruits offer a point of difference (um...hope the purple label didn't influence!). Some sugary sweetness to finish but not out of step with the strength/style of beer. (6 euro 330ml bottle Akerbeltz San Sebastian). DSG (15623) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 16, 2017
