Countbeer (4973) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2012
Draught @BBF’12: Small brown head changes fairly quick into a thin brown lacing on top of a black beer. Smell lots of iodine, jodium and band-aid/bandage and there is some peat, roasted barley malts and wood and spices. Taste is earthy with tar, jodium/iodine, wood, roasted barley malts, roasted wood, some nice roasted bitterness. Strong and pretty complex. Aftertaste is thick on roast with some iodine/jodium, roasted wood, roasted grass and malts and a firm bitterness. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.

PhillyCraft (3635) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Tap at the Borefts Beer Fest at De Molen. Pours pitch black color with huge, and I mean huge brown sticky head. Aromas are filled with strong peat, smoked malt, and other earthy grains. Taste is too smokey for me with smoked malt, almonds, grain, and light coffee bean. Way too much smoke but I still enjoyed it due to the mouthfeel and complexity of flavors.

Benzai (9431) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2012
Draught @ Borefts 12. Opaque pitch black color, average sized, mostly lasting light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, tar and incredibly peaty. Taste malts, roasted malts, smoked malts and again incredibly peaty, too much for my linking. Lightly bitter. A bit thin texture, medium body, low to medium carbo. Crap, I had high hopes but I just don’t like it.

DutchDrebus (4473) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
Borefts’ 12. Pitch black colour with a light brown head. Smells peat, wood, whisky and a bit like bandaid. Tastes awesome, long lasting peat tate, roasty and some coffee. Full body, silky feel and low carbo.

bierkoning (10789) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. Deep dark brown color. Peat totally pushing away all other aromas. Malty sweet flavor. Initial chocolate challenged and beaten by the peat, that lingers on and dominates the aftertaste. World class!

GothGargoyle (1536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Borefts 2012. Solid black with a large beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is smoke, leather, vanilla, whiskey. Creamy on the palate, well balanced, smoky finish. Taste is smoke, chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla. Very heavy on the peat, will be interesting to see how this ages.

77ships (4693) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Pitch black, some dark mocha head on the sides. Smell is pretty much pure peat and heavily smoked mocha. Taste is sweet mocha, heavy peat, very earthly, charcoal, heavy smoked, bitter roast. Sticky body. Good stuff - as usual this kind of aging kind of obliterates the difference between different imperial stout.
