3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6/07/2011: Amager Imperial Stout... Aroma: Milky Dutch cocoa. Appearance: Beer is near black in color and has a brown head. Flavor: Slight meatiness that quickly disappears; milk and dark chocolate blend; heavy dark fruits with some balancing acidity. Palate: Body is medium-full; smooth, milky texture. Overall: Very drinkable and very sessionable, but would like more depth and complexity.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a deep brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is rich and heavy, syrupy with a slight hint of vanilla, as well as some notes of smoke, chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly medium body, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish is a bit unexpected, but good. Smoky and oaky, slight bitterness, long and acerbic. Really a lovely beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep black with a nice tan head. Strong anise aromas coming out from this one, along with some figs and coffee. First sip reveals a twisted bitter concoction of burnt sugar, molasses, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and roast. Slight hop bite. Thick mouthfeel. Dry finish. I really like these European imperial stouts much more than the American versions. These tend to be dry and bitter from the malts, instead of sugary and bitter from the hops. This is a good beer on all accounts.
