Christian (11209) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012
The official Odense sunny Thursday evening in June monster tasting event. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of green pepper, green leaves, cold coffee, ashtray and bready malt. Sweet, alcoholic, and weird flavour, dominated by ashtray and green pepper. It’s a fucking brilliant idea. Too bad it didn’t work.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting´, June 2012. (SfhOdense). Pours clear golden with bubbles on top.Cold coffee, green pepper and soy. A bit of cocoa . Burning hot alcohol. Medium bodied. 20 bucks.. Insanity!

ComradeK (1041) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2012
375ml bottle, 6783 of 7902. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts well and leaves some lace. The aroma is strongly woody, with a touch of soy sauce, some very light berry notes and a slight smokiness. Peppery hops blend well with a woody flavour up front, with a cranberry flavour coming into the mix. Treacley malt gives it a touch of sweetness and some body, before a slightly charry woodiness heralds the finish. There is an odd but pleasant aftertaste of spicy plum sauce. This is a very odd beer. The official "blond imperial stout" goes some way towards describing it, but doesn’t quite get the picture across. It is unlike anything else I have tried, but nevertheless very pleasant, and certainly original!

LoFi (1594) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle #6489/7902. Dark golden to amber with a beige head. Aroma: malty, some chocolate, dried dark fruit. Taste: not roasted, but otherwise some stouty flavours, toffee, milk chocolate, earthy, cocoa, dark fruits, maybe raisins and honey. Full-bodied. A pretty interesting experiment, to create a blonde imperial stout. Flavour-wise it gets pretty close in some areas.

Bottle courtesy of Colin, thanks! Clear syrupy golden color. Aroma of caramel, taste is syrupy sweet with floral notes. Decent stuff.

JorisPPattyn (7971) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Small darker cream-coloured head over metallic amber beer, cold hazed, that seems hardly carbonated. Quite coffeeish nose, roasted coffee, caramel, parsley, with chocolate. Bitter, faint-coffeeish, as a cake or a tart made with coffee; green bitter vegetables, and again caramel. Some carbonation there, all the same; slightly burning MF, quite slick, filmy feel and medium carbonated, alcoholwarming. Not my taste, I’m afraid.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Dark copper color with a medium head. Strong caramel and toasted malt aroma. Seems like it could be peppery, both black and green. The taste is a wollop of malt, toast and burnt caramel. Light coffee, dry fruits, and some dark sugar. Rides the balance of dry/toast/roast and sweet sugar. Not nearly as full and gut filling as a 12% typically is.

Foffern (1252) - Bodř, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the fantastic Bergen tasting crew with such stars as ClubGonzo, Inbreak and Palme, and the mighty StoreMy. Has a bright and clear amber colour with a small off-white head. The aroma appears to be very spicy and is reminiscent of herbal spices. In addition, I sence leather, wood and pastries of all things. Towards the end there’s some perfume and alcohol. I find spices also in the flavour. The taste is sweet with rubber, wood, and some roast, biscuits, beech wood and peat. The beer is smooth and soft in the mouth with a nice balanced medium bitterness. This is truly a unique and interesting beer.
