Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

Sampler @ FRTH. Pretty beer, deep and dark, creamy white head. Nose is really pleasant oats and slightly rye whisjy spice. Flavor is the nose, though the oats take over. Light smoky/woody and a little heat in the middle which is a little out of place for the malt bill. Good, not great.

jefcon (1502) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2010
A whopping big stout, with an out-of-control head and a thick, black, oozing meal of a beer. Oats and coffee, plum and raisin, honey and black pepper. A real treat, mostly as a credit to the fine balance of ingredients and the sheer weight of the brew.

BelgianBeerGal (3384) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Draft at F.S. KC. Poured like you would expect from an impy stout. Surprisingly faint aroma of roasted malts. The flavor was dominated by bitter chocolate making it a bit one dimensional.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 8, 2010
750ml, Jan. 2010 bottling. Soft but interesting aroma of dark chocolate, roasty malts, prune, spicy, doughy yeast, earth, and faint coffee with cream. Opaque ebony in color with a lasting tan head and attractive sheets of lacing. Flavor profile is roasty, malty and sweet, with accents of yeast spice, raisin and herbal hop, finishing a bit drier with a blend of dark fruit, chocolate, moderate bitterness and espresso. The darkly roasted malts lend a touch of acidity to the active, warming, thickly coating palate, while the body is respectably full. A bit of a lighter and subtler variation in the theme of the Imperial Stout by the same brewer. A worthy creation in its own right, however.

Narnad (1503) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Pours very dark black in color with a tall, slow fading, small bubbled, tan head. Aroma has a very strong burn malt nose, mild coffee presence followed by a lower yeasty and light rye malt note at the end. Flavor has an early light dark, very bitter chocolate that is quickly followed by a strong coffee note melded with notes of vanilla, licorice and a light plum and finishes with some rye bit, oatmeal nuttiness and a 1056 yeasty presence. Body is very light with a high amount of carbonation and a very, very dry ending that creates a sandpaper effect on your tongue following a sip. Overall not too bad of a brew but the flavors are extremely strong for the body of the brew and seem a bit muddled up in the tasting. If the body of the brew were a bit higher, this would of been a fantastic brew. But as it stand, a bit too dry and light in body for the flavors.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2010
# 16 Papsoe Blind tasting 21-08-2010. Large creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, mild dried fruit, chalky fell over the palate giving it a dry feel. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Heavy sweet flavor in balance with the bitter notes. Lingering roasted malty and coffee finish. 7/4/8/4/15 = 3.8
