fonefan (44144) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2008
Bottle 75cl @ home by De Molen pre tasting before Ølfestival Aarhus with Menno.
Clear dark red brown almost black color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, dusty, roasted, dark chocolate, wood, oak - peat, smoke, moderate yeasty and hoppy, pine. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate to light heavy bitter with a long duration. Body is full, texture is oily oily - syrupy and very thick, carbonation is soft to flat. This is realy the best of the begian style and the danish imprial stouts .. Very good work Menno. A glas of this is nice but a bottle is much better it gettes better and better. ;o)) (150508)

Papsoe (25063) - 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

omhper (23712) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Transparently black with dense pale brown head. Aroma of aniseed and ouzo. The surprsingly slender and vital body gives it extreme drinkability for a beer it’s size. The flavours are concentrated Salty chocoalte is first in line. It has also grainy malt, licorice and tar. Underneath there are vague fruity notes, raisin perhaps. So unassaulting that it takes a while to realize just how intense and complex it is. One of the best new imperial stouts I’ve had in a long while!

Opaque black beer with a short lived chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Very light for the style. Frothy and creamy. Soft dark malt. Subtle undertone of red fruit, cherry and a little plum. Light coffee and toasted malt notes. Traces of banana and bubblegum in the finish. All very well joined up in to a light Imperial Stout.
