jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
2015-08-26. Black body with a small brown head. 3++ Aroma is lightly earthy, dusty roast and dark malt. Flavour is roughly bitter, herbal, light alcohol throughout. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ Kind of rough overall. The question of why it’s "smout" instead of "stout" is far more interesting than anything in the bottle unfortunately. In fairness it likely suffers partly in comparison to better beers we had tonight. Possibly just a little bit off? Bottle shared by Blankboy.

minutemat (2581) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours deep brown with creamy beige head. Taste presents a rather weak brune, a touch over-carbonated with bitter roasted elements and a touch of tang. Not amazing.

ciocanelu (193) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 6, 2015
Dark brown color with mocha head. Roasty, coffee like aroma with a hint of dark fruits. Taste is also coffee forward with just a hint of smokiness, or more exactly ashy. Aftertaste has quite bitter roasty notes. Body is quite light for an imperial stout but this makes the beer very drinkable. Alcohol is also well hidden. Overall this was a very nice surprise as I was not expecting such a well made beer.

KyotoLefty (7876) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 25, 2015
Bottled at Keyaki, Spring 2015. Pitch black, full lovely head like a chocolate milkshake. Creamy, roasty, full-on nose. Chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roasty and sweet, a bit funky and medicinal, phenolic. Quite nice, but the nose kills the flavor.

PapaVillum (678) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, BB: -/-/2016, købt i Brune Rousse Houblon i Nice i Sydfrankrig, 25. maj 2015. Sort ufiltreret fransk Imperial Stout med ungefär 3 cm smuk moccafarvet skumtop, som svinder til smuk kant og overflade samt et par mm tykkelse. Rolig i glasset. Gedigen aroma af mørk chokolade, engelsk lakrids og espressokaffe. Maltnuancer af ristet malt. Gærnuancer af læder og noter af apotek. Dejlig solid-bitter smag med minimal sødme. Blød "sort", men let mundfølelse giver en let drikkelig og ukompliceret Imperial Stout uden for meget alkohol. Der fremkommer lidt mere sødme gennem smagsbilledet, men det bitre dominerer lækkert. Fyldig krop med velafstemt karbonering på niveauer under middel. Konsistensen er olieret, og afslutningen bitter og kort. Et dejligt glas øl fra et bryggeri, jeg gerne ville smage flere øl fra.

shoulderbroken (2842) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2015
Keyaki. Bit thin again. Lightly medicinal, lots of roast, coffee. Dark fruit. Licquorice. That medicinal thing gets in the way though for me.

peponi (821) - Krakow, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, dried fruits. Appearance: deep brown color, thin creamy head. Taste: low bitterness (herbs), bitter chocolate, roasted malts, ashy, quite dry but not empty. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish with ash. Overall: Decent RIS, maybe a little bit to herbal.

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2015
Big brown head. Opaque black body with white floaties. Roasty chocolatey aroma with bubblegum notes. Sweetish roasty chocolatey taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish roasty bubblegum and chocolate aftertaste with herbal notes. I don’t really like it. The flavours clash and it’s too dense and heavy-handed. (0.33l bottle, I have no idea where from.)
