popery (1851) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
2008 bottle, ~3 years old. Very little carbonation left. Pours a dark brown, cloudy, no head. Vinous aroma. The beer has faded into fruity roast malt notes, which is more negative than positive compared to a fresh bottle, imho. There’s still some of the big dark chocolate note left. Feel is thin. Some roast in the finish. Interesting changes but I’m going to enter an old numbers-only rating of a fresh bottle and just leave the aged rating here in the comments - 7/3/7/2/15.

Bottle, 2008 vintage. Ive been hanging onto this for 3 years after finding it in the Pizza Port bottle shop. Still plenty of carbonation; pour yields a reddish brown head that caps off pitch black color. Lots of lacing. Heavy nose of chocolate, figs, smoke and blueberry. Flavor is solid! Sweet dark chocolates mix with cappuccino and dark fruit. Good bitterness on the back end; a touch of dryness lends to the European imperial stout style. Alcohol is still quite hot after three years.

15/07/2011 33cl bottle @ Klaas’ &Tims collaboration stout tasting - bottled: 22/06/2011 (2011-332) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown beer, clear not cloudy (?). Small irregular shaped beige head. Aroma: fruity hops, peaches, probably due to it’s freshness. On warming up: mocha, coffee, roasted malts, meaty and even some smokey notes become noticeable in the aroma. MF: light carbon, medium body. Taste: red berries, caramel, mocha and coffee, alcohol. Aftertaste: bit sour, very bitter from both hops and roasted coffee bitterness. Not my cup of stout.

JaBier (6444) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2011
2008 bottle shared by a friend. Pitch black pour with a medium tan to light brown head. Boozy and roasty aroma with bitter dark and milk chocolate notes. Dark fruit on the tongue immediately, but quickly turns to roasted malt before a bitter dark chocolate finish. Awesome beer.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was great. The bottle completly fits the beer and it’s name. Black and red, can it get more devilish? Pure black as hell when poured out, forming little head. Full aroma of licorice, coffee and roastiness with a small hint of vanilla. Flavour is huge, a lot of going on and really strong. Coffee more than present, alongside with roasted malts and some alcohol. Licorice and vanilla are present in the middle, but then the coffee takes over again. Long finish, great beer, for a good occassion.
