3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottled Jan 2013 at 10.6%. Very thin pour - dark red with a small tan head, dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cherry, alcohol. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is caramel, warming liquer, a little booze, finishes a little woody. This is nice, just not what I was expecting. Tastes somewhere in between a barley wine and a Belgian strong ale. Intense sweet flavour. Quite nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33l fles bij de slijterij van alkmaar de mare. Zwart zonder een noemenswaardige kraag. Geur is koffielikeur, zoute drop en cacao. Smaak begint met cranberry, daarna snel richting cacao en irish koffie met een afdronk met prikkelende alcohol. Body is vol. Niet verkeerd, al Is de alcohol iets te veel op de voorgrond

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Planet B, Rotterdam, Netherlands, consumed at Frank (camper) Pickets Lock campsite, Ponders End, Good Friday 3rd April 2015 Really fruity jam like nose, like when you are cooking jam, Loz gets spicy raisins and she is also correct a swirl in the glass and you do get that. Doesn’t taste like an Imperial Stout at all to me, Loz reckons it’s a bit boozy. I like it, but not sure how to categorize it. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Shared bottle. Dark brown with very small light beige head. Marzipan, speculaas, mocca, rye bread, raisins, Porto wine, light yoghurt, light boozy. Quite sweet. Medium bodied with slight sticky feel and low carbonation. Nice stuff, almost more barley wine than imp stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 Pours different than I expected. More of a brown ale look to it. Interesting beer. So many flavours it hard to narrow down. Bourbon, caramel and fruit dominated for mine. Great beer but just a bit sweeter than I prefer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (?, ?)
Pleasant roast at first, some nice vanilla, hint of coconut, and later some banana strings. Deep red, a bit pale for an impy to be honest. Remarkably watery palate, OK, it’s a bit sweet too, so not watery /per se/. A tiny drible of the cloudy leftovers did actually fill the palate out a little. Again, a pleasant light roast, again vanilla, some banana, and a bit of coconut again. No sign of 10.6%, it’s not even 7%. Finish has lots of banana as well as the bourbon. Nice, but to be honest
