Cola color, aroma has rye bread, roast, coffee, sweet malts and dark chocolate. Taste has same elements, alcohol is hiding. Full body. Benzai (16999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle [thanks to VastActiv from Euro Secret Summer Santa, thanks!] @ home. Opaque black color, average sized light brown colored head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, rye, light coffee, soft roast. Taste malts, soft roast, a touch of coffee maybe but more prominently chocolate, mild to decent bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice, very nice beer indeed! mauritsio (1024) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2017

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki
Pours dark brown, almost black with virtually no head. Aroma of rye pudding, rye bread, roasted malts and salty licorice. Taste is a perfectly balanced mixture of rye pudding, roasted malts, salty licorice, dried dark fruits (date/plum), dark chocolate, vanilla and hops. The amount of alcohol is succesfully disguised under the complex taste and hops: only a small tingling in tongue and mouth indicates the powerful 11,4%. Tar-like thick texture, smooth hoppy tingling mouthfeel. Nice dryish long hoppy finish. Very harmonic and complex imperial stout! Pilsnertest (296) - SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle at home thanks to Wickedestman. Pours dark reddish brown with small head. Taste is dried fruits, dark rye bread, red berries, white pepper and orange peel.

Black. Dark roasty, soft, soft dark chocolate light milk malty clean sweetish.med full bldied. Smooth, surprisingly smooth, quite easy really. At least for the moment. Bit short finishing. Ok though. Sweet, malty, not overly icky, but just almost.

Bottle. Near black in color with an off-white head. Dark breadyness, sweet vinous notes and ripe dark fruits in aroma. Nice. Soft and smooth. Light bitterness, dark breadyness, some vinous sweetness again in taste. Good, this feels like a belgian dark strong ale at the moment. Tasty.
