Belgo (154) - Køge, - MAR 31, 2008
Thanks to Jacob and Morten at Amager Bryghus for opening this one. Black with a nice brown head. Roasted flavours of coffee and toffee mingles with the smoky sweet aroma of the whisky barrels and a whiff of hops. On the palate the roasted flavours are still there - this IS an Imperial Stout - but the mouthfeel is much more mellow and smooth than the ordinary Imperial Stout from Amager (which is anything but ordinary...). It finishes off sweet but not in a sugary kind of way - the aromas are sweet; vanilla and a hint of whisky (apricots, candied oranges, heather and smoke), but the mouthfeel is fairly dry. For a beer this size it has amazing drinkability. A great beer.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle, 11.5%. Very vinous, and very barrelled aroma. Black colour. Very small light brown head. The flavour is also very vinous, has a bit of vanilla. Quite boozy with a distinct alcohol bitterness, but quite good. The flavour is actually quite fruity, has a sort of dark berry note.

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ D-Day in Mojnlandet :-) Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel, coffee and oak barrel. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweet notes of caramel malt and touches of coffee. Discernible notes of barrel. Bitter aftertaste with roasty overtones. Warming alcohol presence. Good.

Marstonlad (621) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki. Pours black with a non-existant head. Aroma displays well the oak barrel elements such as vanilla, whiskey, sherry and licorice. Taste is dryish and roasty and offers some variety but unfortunately also shows that the best before date has passed long ago. The hops are completely gone and the palate too light and thin for this style. Licorice and vanilla are too dominant; there is not enough depth or length in the taste. Not ruined totally but still far from the level it should be.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2014
25cl bottle #2107. Pours an oily dark brown/black with some spitty, wispy brown head. Nose has a lot of booze, port, dark chocolate, cherry cordial, a little soy, toast, earthy red grape. Flavor is interesting, quite thin, licorice, oily, chocolate, raisin, soy, a little toasted sesame. Thin finish. A bit over aged.
