Gluepot (392) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
This really isn’t fair - comparing this massive IS resulting from three of the best ISs coming out of Europe to other regular production beers. The price is out of this world as well. But that said, this is a great brewing accomplishment, which isn’t always the case with "All Star" products like this one. The nose has more elements than any I have tested before - Tar, liquorice, roasted malt, Cream, and burnt butter on top of some earthy hops.Those nose elements follow through into the taste profile, complimented by bittering hops with tropical fruit, Cocao nibs, coffee, roasted caramel, dark berries and molasses. A rich, oily, viscous body coats the mouth with alcohol warmth. Delicious.

Kraambezoek voor Roza tasting. Enorme dijk aan koffie en bourbon, alcoholisch als de pest maar soms vergeet je het en merk je het niet. Brand wel bijna door je tong heen. Backlog from 2015/02/09.

Completely black in colour and absolutely no head. Complex tastes of licorice, fresh coffee, chocolate and alcohol. Very full, somewhat oily body, light carbonation, and a very long finish of licorice, coffee and alcohol. A strong, fantastic imperial stout

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Black as black can be with a nice thin brown head. Smells of treacle, marmite, molasses, wood, port, brown sugar and rich roasted dark malt, dark fruits, including raisins, and figs. Tastes of dark prune, figs, raisins and sultanas, Christmas cake, roasted dark malt, coffee. Full delicious body. Delicious stout

Zakoon (483) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2015
330ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours very dark brown - almost black with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, raisins, dates, prunes, coffee, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, dark chocolate and wood. Flavour is light to medium bitter and medium sweet. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is long, warming alcohol and complex.

drpimento (3007) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2015
While this one is the least complex of the three, it’s still incredibly tasty. Has a bit of warmth in the finish. All the flavors are dominated by the sweet. Could easily sip on a couple of these. Thanks again to John for his generosity in his gift of this to me!

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2015
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je znát po ovocném likéru připomínající jahody a pomeranč s nádechem dubu a alkoholu. Pěna je zlatohnědá, jemná, nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je neprůsvitná, temná čerň. Chuť je výrazně alkoholová s nádechem karamelu, hořké čokolády a ovocného likéru, finiš je slabě hořký, výrazně alkoholový s držícím palčivým ocasem. V ústech pivo působí mohutně, má silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Jedná se o opravdu mohutný,výrazný imperial stout, kde ta jedna třetinka je téměř nezdolná i když chutná v první deci.
