fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Black color; small, creamy, brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, paper, chemicals, alcohol. Caramel and some coffee flavor, quite sweet, but with too much alcohol presence, that spoils the body, and worsen in the final. Elements clash here. Confused.

Abio (1784) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2011
Pitch black. Head is good and hold nice when poured from a bit higher. Good roasted, coffee, chocolate, hint of vanilla, good moderated liqourish. Something less pleasant gets trough a little at the smell, but overall, this one is good for sure.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Sehr intensiver Antrunk, süß nach Kaffee, dazugehörig röstig. Extrem intensiv trotz Süffigkeit, höchstmalzig. Dazu süßlich-röstig auf einer scheinbar unendlich intensiven Ebene, sehr schokoladig, komplex und natürlich entsprechend vollmundig. Sehr langer Schokoladenabgang mit Nuancen von vergorenen Früchten und Bitterschokolade. Genial! 11/12/13/13//13

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Festival der Bierkulturen 15.05.2010 Malziger, cognacartiger Duft, gleichzeitig hopfenbetont zitrusaromatisch. Startet sehr dicht dunkelmalzig. Im Mittel schokoladig, würzig mit einer sehr gut balancierten Bitternote. Malzbitter und samtig-schokoladig abebbend. Im Finish leichtes Alkoholflair. Super Imperial-Stout. Extraklasse!Test vom 19.5.2010, Gebinde: Fass

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2011
Green waxed 18 cL bottle, brought home from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Black with ruby-brown edges. A finger of creamy choco head. Smell licorice, hard roasted sweet dark malts and strong coffee ground. Also some barrel notes and a nice whiff of vanilla. Full malt body. Creamy in the mouth, with soft prickling carbonation. Sweet, roasty and warm. Coffe, licorice and wood. Quite vinous. Substantial bitterness. Finishes smooth, warm and balanced. Great drinkability for such a big beer.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle. A black one, topped by a medium sized, creamy, tan head. Red wine, roasted malts, some alcohol and oak and a touch of coffee on the nose. The flavor has a good bitterness to support the roasted malts and coffee, as well as the oak and vinous feeling. Full-bodied and slightly warming on the palate. A rather lovely one, making me forget to take notes when drinking it. 110107

GT2 (9408) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
250mL green wax from Belgobaren in Stockholm, Sweden. Courtesy of Jack himself! The pour is a deep, tawny maroon with a scant, creamy, tan head. Little spotty lace. Aroma is wet wood, sharp coffee and chocolate, peat, boozy black cherries, meat, fat. Taste is buttery/ganache, heavy, rich, tart cherries, but dry and bitter. Sort of like liquid smoked chocolate. Excellent, soft, creamy palate. Sweet up front and bitter, tart in the back. Really yummy. Would pair well with hanger steak.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle, thanks to Mes. Black as the abyss with a small brown head. Nose and taste had abundant dark chocolate and roasted malt with some alcohol and barrel notes. Very smooth, fullish and creamy mouthfeel. Some bitternes protruded towards the finish. Barely noticable ABV overall. A perfect late night sipper. Ace!
