UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Bottle; from Brwery, thanks Evin! Opaque black colour, mocha lacing diminishes, aroma is smoke, chocolate, light peat, fudge, some citrus hops. Taste is superb. Stunning dark Belgian chocolate, like real premium stuff, smoke, some leather, some peat, fudge, toffee, roasted malts, a littel rough on the bitternes, oil ,vanilla, raisins, brown sugar, depth and complexity is stunning, really long drinking and warms up very very nicely. Ken is right, lay this for a year and it woulld be intrigueing. I may do the same. Great work, Evin! Drinkability is there and alcohol is well hidden. Great stuff. Bottle - bottled on 7th October 2013 - re-rate. Deep guey chocolate gateaux; motor oil; tar; leather; velvet; stupidly drinkable for the abv; nice roasted malts; slight charcoal; cigar ash and wooden notes. Some blackcurrant and oil and cream. A very rich and rewarding imperial stout and in my eyes probably the best in the country of course along with GKHR SR. Aged this is even better! 4.5

330ml bottle, 9.5%, bottled October 2016. Pours black with a thin bubbly tan head. Aroma: rich dark/dried fruits, dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee. Taste: like the aroma rich with dried fruits and roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate, warming alcohol, quite sweet, long warm finish. Full bodied, minimal carbonation. Decent stout but very rich, wouldn’t want more than one.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, roast malt and coffee. Moderate sweet and bitter. Good thick mouthfeel. Excellent no nonsense stout.

KraftowyJakup (330) - POLAND - JUL 12, 2017
W nosie brownie, od groma czekolady deserowej, uczucie jakbym wąchał miękkie ciacho z płynną czekoladą, dalej trochę paloności w postaci ziarna kakao, prażonego słonecznika i skórki ciemnego pieczywa. W smaku raczej półwytrawny, ale gęsty, oleisty, ciała nie brakuje, na finiszu odczucie wyklejania, jak przy czekoladzie 90+ % kakao. Mimo, że lwią część aromatu i smaku wypełnia czekolada i kakao pod różnymi postaciami, nie powiedziałbym, że jest jednowymiarowe czy nudne. Po ogrzaniu dochodzi wyraźna nuta piernika z rodzynkami czy śliwką.

Poprawny sotut. ładnie sie prezentuje. Czarna, oleista barwa. Puszysta, kremowa piana. Pachnie kawą. Delikatna mleczną czekoladą. Z czasem miałem wrażenie, że te nuty ewoluują w kierunku mleka i masła. Pijalne, bez wyraźnej goryczki.

No taki ris. Dużo palnoci, wytrawny, kawowy. Ładnie się prezentuje, niczego nie urywa.

Pours black with a thin creamy head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with pleasant texture. Taste has cocoa, chocolate, some malt sweetness and notes of alcohol in the aftertaste.

ardeo (424) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle. Couleur chocolat noir et mousse réduite. Nez : chocolaté, réglisse, café, malts rôtis. Bouche : crémeuse, alcoolisée mais aussi douce, cafe spresso, houblons/herbes, chocolat noir, fruits noirs, réglisse, amertume légère mais longue dans le temps ! Le temps d’une superbe dégustation ! Magnifique !

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2017 Something like a savory chocolate stout. Nice coffee and alcohol aftertaste, perhaps not enough going on in the foreground.
