Bomber bottle and served in my big arse Tripel Karmeliet glass: Pours a very deep brown, nearly opaque with an initial big frothy tan head that fades. The aroma is twangy cherries and plums, heavy roasted barley and charred black malt, with a bit of Belgian yeast banana and bubblegum as well. The taste is sort of muddled... make that very muddled notes of fruits, roast and yeast. Some oak and vanilla towards the tannic dry finish. The mouth feel is far too thin for the genre. I do not care much for these Belgian Imperial Stouts and while this is better than most it still lacks depth, richness and complexity found in American and British styled version.
22oz bottle. 2012 Vintage. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized tan head. Darn fruits, chocolate, vanilla, and some roastiness. Not bad. Sdaniel90 (1090) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 23, 2016

Bottle, 650ml. A dark beer with minimal brown head. Aroma is of dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is moderately bitter with an aftertaste of dried fruits, especially raisins. Light bodied for an Imperial Stout with considerable carbonation. Somewhat alcoholic finish. dfinney23 (3394) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2016
I think I get what they’re aiming for but this comes off more like "stout light" than "Belgianized". A little fruitier than a typical stout but lacks complexity and subtleties that would be found in a fine Belgian. DiarmaidBHK (5460) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Draft at Hayseed. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Fairly fruity on the nose. Interesting mix of roasted malt and Belgian yeast notes on the tongue. Finished clean. This vintage was from a 2012 keg so the flavors may have deepened as opposed to a fresh keg.

Bottle. Brought this bottle that I aged 13 months to the In-laws to share. They made the Easter dinner for us. Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, tan head. The aroma is a collection of chocolate, plums, figs, vanilla, brown sugar, toasted bread and roasted nuts. Full-bodied and oily with modest carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced – roasty, toasty and loaded with dark chocolate, figs and dates. Lightly bitter finish. TaktikMTL (7880) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
