jerohen (1975) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2009
Bottled 33 cL from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Opaque black appearance, no head (i see others do?). Very complex aroma, malts, laurel, liquorice, raisins, coffee, chocolate, very good. Complex flavour as well, sweet with bitterness in finish. Everlasting finish. Extraordinary brew, very complex, not necessarily my favourite flavours but still i keep sipping this one. Very well brewed!

Bottle shared by beerbill... many thanks! Bottle #102. Deep dark brown beer. Aroma is a bit malty and chewy. Light Belgian malts, soft cocoa and chocolate. There is a nice rich deep cocoa aroma and flavour. A light vineous quality. Very rich deep cocoa flavour with a lightly herbal quality and orange peel through the middle. A soft spiciness also appears before the grassy/herbal finish. Fairly peppery. This is a really interesting beer. Quite unlike any of the other stouts we’ve had tonight and pretty damn tasty.

750 ml bottle courtesy of a trade with cgarvieuk. Thanks, Craig! Pours black with a moderate brown head that lasted beyond mid-glass and left nice lace. Very pleasant aroma of oranges, chocolate, alcohol and roasted malt. The flavor is caramel and lightly roasted malt followed by fresh orange and raisins. A dose of alcohol emerges as the beer approaches the finish. Moderate bitterness at the finish as well which continues to build beyond the swallow before finally subsiding. A very different and enjoyable imperial stout.

Borresteijn (4540) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2009
75cl Bottle at new years eve, to leave all Hell and Damnation in 2008, and what a way to start 2009! Pitch black beer with a lasting creamy light brown to beige head. Thick aroma of moccha, chocolate, liquorice, coffee. Very nice. Flavour is sweet coffee, moccha, liquorice, chocolate, a hint of something like glue, with a nice bitter finish. Body is thick, syrupy, very smooth carbonation. Great mouthfeel, highly drinkable. Excellent stuff.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours completely black and opaque with a creamy, cappuchino-like light brown head. Very intense aroma: burned malts, peaches, licorice and cough syrup. Also an intensely full body, plenty of sweet licorice, roasted malt and a light ashy note. Finishes with a light malt bitterness and a warming alcohol. Truly a great Imperial Stout. 231208
