Imperial Stout – 10,2% vol. Twice the amount of dark roasted malts used, massive Imperial stout. This is a mad one. Black brown colour with a thick and creamy tan head that can be added to as you wish if you give the bottle a swirl. Give this beer time to breathe and blossom into something truly stunning. Chocolate and alcohol are right there at the front but do not at all overpower the gorgeousness that is underneath. Full of leather, vanilla, amazing wooden notes, beautifully floral character from the hops, thick Belgian chocolate, much character. The flavour of crazy wooden tartness. An extremely bitter finish seems to come out of nowhere and is what really makes this quite unique. Superb width in the mouth and coats the whole palate beautifully. Alcohol 12% in latere versies

Very dark and sharp imperial stout. This one is not for the faint of heart. Smells like 100% pure chocolate. Taste is very sharp, the 12% is noteable. Remarkable.

Maakun (321) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2014
Black with no head, just some brown bubbles. Lots of bitter chocolate, coffee, burnt malts. Some tart dried cranberries, marzipan and light citrus. Medium to full bodied, with no carbonation and therefore light watery feel. Lovely stuff, would be better with some carbonation.

33cl bottle sampled in a snifter. Black brew with a very small brown head with low retention and no lacing. Aroma is roasted, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Tastes very roasty and slightly smokey. There’s some chocolate, coffee, dried fruit and spices in the taste. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy and the finish is bitter and boozy. The brew has a full body and very low carbonation. Lovely and powerfull brew!

330ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere. 12% and Bottled on 01/08/13.

Not any whiz when opening cap, no carbon acids. I have two of these so hopefully second is better.

Galago (11) - - MAR 5, 2014
De espuma más bien escasa y de poca duración, color negro profundo, marcadas notas maltosas a torrefacto, pan tostado y quizá frutos rojos. Aromas lupulados algo herbales. De trago medio.

donker bruin, zwart ogend bier met minimale (nagenoeg geen) kraag aroma is werkelijk super, zeer volle moutigheid met volle zoete chocolade smaken zijn redelijk zoet, redelijk bitter, enorme sterke en stevige smaken, zeer sterke mouten (geroosterd- gebrand), licht pepertje, licht rokerige mouten, zeer stevig alcoholisch, vanille, leer, koffie. volle body, romig/glad van textuur, afdronk zoetig maar een zeer en dan zeer stevig gemoute stout !

TET (1433) - FINLAND - MAR 2, 2014
A black beer with a weak and brown head. The nose of roasted coffee, salt liquirice, roastiness, sweet berries and strawberries. Taste is strongly roasted, coffee, herbal bitterness, hint of strawberries. The end is dry with coffee. Almost full bodied, very low carbonation, not sticky, the strong roastiness slows down the drinkability. Roasted IS with the strong coffee, tastefull.

Zwarte kleur, geen schuim. Ruikt gebrand. Smaakt weer erg lekker, erg zwaar. Goede bittere nasmaak.
