rami_pl (1072) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 1, 2015
kran w jabeerwocky. Wszystko jak najbardziej na swoim miejscu, zgodnie z oczekiwaniami. Czekolada, pralinki, sliwki w czekoladzie, whiski (dosc intensywne), drewno, kawa, suszone owoce, slodycz waniliowa, winne nutki. Malo palonosci. Niska dosc goryczka (ale jej role przejal alkohol wyczuwalny i rozgrzewajacy) Ladnie ulozone. Rozgrzewajace. geste. duzo ciala. srednie+ wysycenie. Klasa.

Стандар& хороший, но банальн& имперск& стаут. Тут нет никаких заворот& поворот& только классик& - даже помногу, но мужчина всегда сверху.

neongolden (1012) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2015
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Oct 30 2015) Pours black with a small but persistent pale tan head and no lace. Aroma has loads of fairly hard, slightly ashy roast, coffee grinds, dark malts, a bit of molasses, with hints of cacao, vanilla and dried fruits. Flavour is quite dry and roast-centric, surrounding a sweet dark malt core with burnt sugar notes and a little dark fruit. Really all about the roast though, not smoky or too ashy but pervasive, with coffee bean and unsweetened cocoa and a vaguely woody note. Finish is bone dry, dusty and moderately bitter with persistent earthy roast notes and a little sweet malt core for balance. No alcohol. Medium full, slightly viscous and creamy, very soft carb, feels great. Love the balance in this bad boy, it’s dry but not harsh, oxidized or acidic despite all the roast. Supreme take on a more traditional English imperial stout. Great sipper.

Kita (1676) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours pitch black with medium soapy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and dried fruits. Taste starts with sweet and rich roasted malt and chocolate, follows by dried fruits and licorice with warming mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Damn good, smooth and easy drinking...

OnlyRogueAngel (42) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2015
Deep black colour with a chocolate brown foamy head. Smells strongly of burnt coffee, softened with chocolate, caramel and a spicy tinge. The taste is very soft considering the bitter coffee, chocolate, caramel, wood smoke and spices that all erupt in your mouth, leaving a sharp, bitter chocolate and spiced aftertaste. It’s in my Top 10.

ArtificialCyst (228) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, roastiness, some hoppy sweet notes. Appearance: Black, head low, dense, not very durable. Taste: Coffee, roastiness, some chocolate, hoppy notes, alcohol warming. Palate: finish is coffee and alcohol, body is full, carbonation is low. Thought it will be mindblowing. It wasnt. Just a standard nice RIS.

Gluepot (296) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
The Dutch might not be able to make a good IPA, but De Molen has proven they can make an excellent imperial stout! Under a thick reddish head is a balanced and rich taste profile, including ripe dark berries, milk chocolate, mid-range coffee and earthy malts. Clean and non-acidic. Very well made IS.
