Bottling date: 07/11/13. Thanks franski! Shared with him, kajser27 and ogivlado. Black body, tinged with amber, scant head, only vague traces of an off white, perhaps brownish or tan head. Huge malty aroma, raisins, slight dogfood, chocolate, vaaaague candied orange, vague port notes, dusty. Nice! Taste... hmmm... nice caramelly heavy maltiness, vague coffee, vague burnt sugar, on top of that some citric hopiness popped up. Milk chocolate popped up as I was writing this in the finish. Vaaague bitterness. Quite nice and tasty. caribou43 (1318) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2016 It is a great beer, it is not my favourite kind of beer but I give a good note, because it is a complex one. First I could say that the liquid is dense, heavy and nice foam. There is a good balance with this taste of oysters and roasted malt. This beer like all the Imperial stouts and the stouts take time to drink and to appreciate the paradise.

Pours opaque black with a large brown head which quickly recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma is cocoa and roast coffee. Taste is coffee and cocoa butter, porridge velvetiness, slightly smokey, slightly refined-sugar sweet. Full bodied. AgentAle (1889) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2015
Aroma is rich roasty malts, caramel, molasses, chocolate, and toffee. Taste is rich malts, chocolate, mocha and caramel. Transitions to clove and a light smokiness. Appearance is a black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Ulysse (539) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2015
Mixed stout aroma. Pure chocolate taste. Moderate. Not heavy for an imperial stout. Could almost drink this like another beer. Nicolas_M (220) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2015
The aroma tells everything: it’s gonna be awesome.
Strong aroma which reminds me of smoke, as for the taste (well, first part of it).
Aftertaste is about roasted malt, "like usual".
A very good beer, that you should still take time to drink.
