Holmen1 (3734) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2015
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Ovesen: nesten kullsort med højt beige skum som varer. Nydelig, kompleks aroma med lakris, sjokolade, vanilje, tjære, brunt kandissukker, mørke bær og mere til. Førsteinntrykket er en balansert smak uten skarpe kanter. Overraskende lett munnfølelse for sitt høye vitamininnhold - farlig lett å helle over drøvelen. Men det pussige er at mot slutten kommer en lite kledelig surhet frem.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 21.09.15. Ebony. Large and foamy brown head. Fruity aroma with dark malt and some star anise. Similar taste. Quite dry. Malt sourness in aftertaste.

On gravity dispense at GBBF 2014 on Day 1. Opaque black stout with a thin tan head. Nose is vinegar, little sour, roasted malt, Belgian funky yeast, black coffee, chocolate. Taste is slightly sour, yeasty, slight funkiness, roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, prune and raisin, and coffee. Not sure there is supposed to be sour in here. Suspect not. Will re-rate again from a bottle soon.

hohops (570) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Appearance- black, with a huge pillowy light brown head which settles into 1-2 fingers. Aroma- fairly hoppy, burnt malts, toffee, milky coffee, treacle, vanilla ice cream, waffles. Taste- roasted malts, burnt toast, bitter espresso, toffee, hop undertones, some dark fruits and liquorice emerge as it warms. Quite a lot of carbonation, a malty clingy finish. Very good.

TorbenJensen (1280) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2015
The color is black, foam nougat colored, dense and creamy. The aroma is partly smoked and sharp tones of roasted malt and licorice. The taste has an unexpected sour tone which I think comes from plenty of bitter hops. Coffee and liquorice and the aforementioned burnt malt takes over quickly and emphasizes that it is a powerful imperial stout. It’s pretty intense in its expression, but at the same time very tasty and challenging.

visionthing (3767) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
33cl bottle from some bottle shop somewhere in Belgium. Pours dark brown to black with a huge beige head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, dried, dark fruits, licorice, hints of coffee, spices, Belgian yeast, caramel and nuts. Medium sweet, surprisingly flavourful and quite complex. Finishes fairly bitter. Almost fizzy, at least very lively carbonation, a bit too much for my taste, but altogether a very nice beer.
