On a recent trip to Amsterdam I was told I had to visit Bierproeflokaal in de Wildeman (see separate review) and I did. The draft menu (chalkboard) was full of beer names I'd never heard of whose styles I couldn't tell from the name. I told the bartender that I was interested in trying some of the recent European takes on American styles (ala Mikkeler and Brew Dog). She recommended this beer to me and it was outstanding.

Very, very dark in color with a very dark brown head. Aroma had notes of coffee, dark fruit, hops and alcohol. The flavor too had a great (perfect) balance of elements. I enjoyed this beer as much as I have any imperial stout. I would highly recommend this one.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. This is the newer, 11.6 ABV version. Pitch black pour with a one finger caramel-colored head that faded quickly with minimal lacing. Really nice nose that's dominated by fresh roasted coffee along with hints of cocoa, tobacco, and leather. The taste mirrors the nose. Loads of roasty coffee along with hints of wood, cocoa, tobacco, leather, and some subtle licorice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a great slightly sweet, bitter finish. Overall, this was way better than I had expected. The reviews that I had read did not prepare me for such an amazing beer. And the 11.6 ABV was nowhere to be found. Scary drinkable! Excellent interpretation of a coffee stout! Definitely one of the best I've had! Kudos Menno!

Wow, great dessert beer. Tons of sweet creamy coffee to sip and savor, along with molasses and toffee. Still not cloying, and can't wait to revisit this one again!

11.6%, from notes.

Pitch black, tan head.

Coffee, a bit of mocca pie (Dutch thing), dark fruitiness, not really one sort of fruit in particular, slight bitterness.

Taste: Coffee, nice coffee, not overpowering. Roastiness, a light sweetness and some hop bitterness. The sweetness is light dark fruits. Nice beer.

Creamy but medium mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Overall a nice coffee stout. In intensity a good middle ground between the likes of Founders Breakfast Stout and Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast. Recommended.

Pours witha nice creamy and frothy light tan head that stays around for ages, and is a nice cap on top of the nearly jet black hue of the beer. Denser looking with some brown highlights around.

Loads of coffee right up front with a nice roasted quality to the malts as well. It's a pretty straightforward and leaner brew in terms of the aroma complexity, but I would have to say that it's a damn fine coffee forward (like the Kopi Loewak) stout. Lots of nice chocolate hints that come through as well.

Tons of flavorful coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavors with a deeper roastiness; it's a coffee bomb to be sure, but a very well done one with fresh roastiness and really nice bitter twang that keeps this from being on the sweeter side. Medium MF with bubbly tiny carbonation. Definitely a sipper at this heft, but a very nice drinking experience and though the alcohol doesn't rear in the taste, it's a warming brew for sure.

Beer bottle (33 cl., ABV=11.6) purchased from Clem's and tasted in 2012.

Appearance : deep black color, with too big tan bubbles (no "pschitt" when opening ? no carbonation).
Smell : dark chocolate and roasted coffee aromas (Moka).
Taste and mouthfeel : dark chocolate flavours with notes of toast, licorice and coffee and huge bitter finish (86 IBU). Alcohol presence (23.7 ° Plato).
Drinkability : a very good beer in the style Russian Imperial Stout.
To drink at cellar t° with some chocolate.

From an 11.2oz bottle, dated 08/05/15. Served in a tulip.

Pours a totally opaque black with a meager beige head that doesn't last but a minute.

Smells awesomely of mocha java, vanilla, cherries and wood drying in the sun.

Tastes of rich chocolate, cream and cacao nibs, caramel, plums, cherries and molasses brown bread. Virtually no detectable alcohol. Finishes with a bit of bitter coffee, tongue-coating vanilla cream and a little more cherry.

Feel is creamy, thick and medium-heavy bodied considerably lightened by vigorous carbonation.

Delicious.

A-thin dark brown beer with a thick and creamy tan head.

S-notes of belgian yeast, ash, tobacco, dark malt sweetness with some chocolate underneath.

T-well done, soft and perfectly balanced. good chocolate presence, notes of peat, roasted malts, a nice belgian yeast, malt sweetness in the back.

M-a little thin but soft, smooth and creamy with a medium body and moderate amount of carbonation.

D-this is well balanced and has a great feel to. i really enjoy the belgian component to this adding to your standard imperial stout flavors. lots of roasted malts and malt sweetness to play off of each other.
