vinivini (2818) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 8, 2017
Bottled. Hazy deep brown colour. Well-lacing capuccino-coloured head. Stays. Aroma: caramel, toffee, toast, fruit esters, Belgian yeast, a touch of nail polish. Medium body. The taste follows the nose with the exception of minor roastiness present. Medium sweet. Warming. Low to light bitterness. Stout? No way. Just a middle-of-the-road BSDA with a minor roast nuance.

wilde_joost59 (253) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle at home. Brown, some red, color. Beige/brown head. The taste is a little soft compared to the abv of 9%. For an imperial stout I expected more taste.

emincems (110) - TURKEY - APR 11, 2017
one of the most underrated beers. taste is caramel, strong malt and chocolate.a little sugary, but very good beer overall.

3.7
ardeo (508) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2017
Bottle 33. Brune-noire à quelques reflets et avec mousse beige suffisante. Nez : un peu de café, de réglisse, de caramel/candi, du malt. Bouche : assez douce, avec candi, cacao, fruits noirs, quelques épices ... vin ... avec une effervescence plus que moyenne mais une petite amertume. Pas mauvaise du tout mais pas "stout" du tout non plus. Je parie que certains "raters" ont abaissé leur côte pour cette raison !

3.3
TimE (6067) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2017
Medium brown color. Off white head. Big Belgian yeasty nose with a bit of winey character. Thin body for the style not super balanced. Despite how bad it looks for the style and how thin it tastes, it’s not that bad.

Ysok02 (1763) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2017
Robe brune foncée, mousse crémeuse mais peu peristante. Nez discret, pointe de chocolat, de café. Bouche à l’attaque banale, manque d’ampleur et de complexité. Sans intérêt.

2.9
nocheinbier (78) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
From a 330ml bottle. A bit of a disappointment. Pours dark and looks beautiful with a thick foamy head, has a dull aroma if any. First thing that sprang to mind when I tasted it was how fizzy it was. I expected much more taste and substance for a 9% beer. There’s a sweet fruity aftertaste but I couldn’t get much more than that.
