750ml bottle shared at epic Cantillon tasting. Aroma: molasses, chocolate, candied fruits, vanilla, raisin. App: dark brown with medium moka head, little lacing. Taste and palate: full body, medium high sweetness, some vanilla, light bitter and alcohol finish. Overall: good beer but feels a bit too strong for me. Too much alcohol for me. katrinaez (2147) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2017

Poured from the quart bottle. Quiet pour with moderate carbonation and an assertive complex aroma - bourbon, roasted barley, vanilla, and oak. The beer is an opaque dark colour with a thin head and only minimal lace. The aggressive bourbon-oak start has malty smoothness and roasted barley expanding into the middle. The long lingering finish has notes of vanilla and hints of chocolate. Good mouthfeel throughout. Well made indeed!

LCI. Van de tap @TheBruery. Prachtige imp stout, geur en smaak vol donker fruit, zoet, boozy, heerlijk! nickd717 (4781) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Large format bottle pours black with a nice tan head. The aroma is reminiscent of Black Tuesday, molasses, anise, chocolate, roast, vanilla, bourbon. Flavor is intense, doesn’t seem like a lighter version of anything. Big molasses, sweet chocolate malts, some bitterness on the finish. Not too boozy. Quite heavy on the feel, albeit not as much as the original. Pretty good. kryon (3775) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2017
