Kauge (614) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn. Bottled 7.5.14. Near black. Head beige, not exactly big, but retains as a thin layer, leaving no lacing. The aroma is thick cocoa-chocolate-coffee-toffee-raisins-plums, some tar and ash... wonderful... Tastes as fckn nice. Or even better. It’s so sweet yet not overly so, it’s somewhat boozy but the alcohol is not very overpowering, it’s really pleasant in this mix. Some burning bitterness in the finish. Nice thin graininess on the palate, body heavy, palate vinous and chewy, carbonation present but nearly unnoticeable. This is a really nice brew.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Tap at Irreale. Borwnish hed. Black thick opaque. Aroma is complex and rich, cocoa, prune and coffee. Taste is cocoa, prune, coffee, burnt caramel, remindind ’irish coffee’. Very creamy palate with dry but mouthful aftertaste. One of the very best imperial stouts!

ippers (46) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Flesje van 33cl. Hele mooi donker bier met een bruine schuimkraag, bijna koffie achtig te noemen. Smaak is bij de eerste slok heel complex maar bij de tweede kon ik wel de smaak tonen proeven, tonen van koffie, karamel, zelfs iets van rozijnen. Heel interessant en lekker biertje
