Fles van Heroes of Taste . Vol. Vooral chocolade en wat geroosterde mouten. ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Pours jet black in color. Smells like bitter chocolate. Not a whole lot of taste beyond the chocolate/coffee. It does hold some nice lacing given the 10% alcohol. Scouser (352) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Pours almost black with a little beige lacing and no head. Slight aroma of burnt coffee and chocolate. Taste like it smells, its ok, nothing to write home about. jrodooo5 (1718) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Pours black w/ a big mocha head that leaves lacing. The aroma is dark malt & boozy. The taste is almost overwhelmingly bitter. It’s about as bold of an imperial as I’ve come across. Some black liqourice & toffee notes sort of mellow the super dark coffee flavor but not enough to make it pleasant on the palate. A tad over the top for my liking!
