Reddish brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of sweet liqurice, prunes, alcohol and weak notes of chocolate. A flavor of sweets and liqurice.

Thankfully the bottle shop warned me this may be a gusher. Safely opened in the sink with a quick foam explosion and yeasty aroma. Full bodied, dark brown Imperial Stout with Belgian sweetness, roasted malt and moderate bitterness.

Bottle @ FUAD share. Deep reddish pour with a small head. Nose is a bit acidic. Cherry fruit leather and cocoa. Chocolate. Taste is pretty dry and peppery. Manure. More fruit leather. Dark chocolate. Full body, soft carb.

Bill Becker (565) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 9, 2015
Cola coloured with an inch of tan foam. Great lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt bitterness, with a hint of Brett. Very bitter roasted malt and chocolate to start. Light coffee with a very dry almost tart taste in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. The cap mentions October 2016. A best after date? The label says it can be kept for 8 years or more.

More like a Belgian strong than an imperial stout. Strong yeasty flavours, and sour notes. Not unbalanced though, and very enjoyable.

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark brown pour that starts with beige foam that mostly disappeared. Large swath of dark caramel malt flavors. Earthy, musty wood barrel notes. Dark chocolate cherry cordials. Liquorice roots. Truffles. Sweet orange peels. Fruitcake. Slight smoke. Bit tart. Body reads a bit thin. Belgium yeast is noticeable. Not my favorite, but not bad at all.

BeerViking (3261) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle labelled 2007 (thanks Martin!), pours a brown that’s near-black with a beige head, quite gassy though thankfully not a gusher. Nose is cocoa, musty wood, touches of liquorice and Bovril. Rich and heavy yet somehow slightly watery too. More cocoa and liquorice, along with dry bitterness and a slightly tart plumminess in the background. Strong dry and slightly sour umami notes. Very Belgian!

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
Made in honour of Chris ’Podge’ Pollard, this was Belgium’s very first attempt at imperial stout. Very dark, almost black colour under a deep, dense beige head; full and rich aroma, lots of chocolate, toffee, wood, coffee, candied fruits, spicy yeastiness; very full and deeply malty palate, fruity with a long dry roasted bitter finish and warming alcohol. Certainly worthy of its style.

vtafro (4929) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Draft at ebenezer’s. Black pour with some lacing. Dark malt aromas, very strong tones. Flavors are dark malt, roasted and other malty tones, has a bit of alcohol warmth.

dfinney23 (2284) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2014
A sweet stout with more yeast, dark fruit and sourness than is typical, though still predominantly chocolate and toasted malt.

Gusher! Black colour, brown foam. Aroma of roasted malts with notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Light sour hints. Good beer!
