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

Tomy63 (200) - Clermont-Ferrand, - DEC 30, 2013
couleur très noire, quasiment pas de mousse, nez de café, chocolat, beaucoup de vanille. Bouche classique, mêmes arômes qu’au nez avec un superbe équilibre, puissante sans être alcooleuse, grosse amertume qui contrebalance le sucre. Texture épaisse. Finale longue, légèrement épicée. Un modèle d’Imperial stout

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 18, 2016
Massive beer but I’m not sure what else you could expect. Chocolate, roast, sweet fruits, lots of choc orange. Bang in line with the play book. Sweetness ramps up on the finish and very effectively seals it as a one-off taste (at least for today).

Werckmeister (2207) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 9, 2016
0,33l bottle at home from drinkshop.sk. Bottled 31/12/2014. BB 31/12/2039. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells of spices, raisins, licorice, light peat, hints of bacon, lightly dusty, light ketchup. decent smell, but not overly exciting. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes peppery, spices, some ketchup again, licorice, earthy, light smoke. finishes lightly earthy bitter with notes of spices and ketchup. quite unpleasant imp stout. probably this should have been consumed fresher, and i m not sure what the shop i bought it from, did with it, but for an imp stout this is heavy and rather unpleasant.

lord_zer0 (45) - Cáceres, SPAIN - JUL 25, 2016
Esperaba mas de esta cerveza. Poco aroma y demasiada presencia de alcohol. Deja un retrogusto muy amargo. Cuidado porque sube mucho.

hrabren (920) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with lovely Anja, Višnja 666 and Goran. Thanks Višnja! Dark brown, small tan head. Dry fruits, alcohol, chocolate. Sweet, dry, barrel flavor. Quite drinkable, dry finish. Good, but not that special.

ALIBALI (687) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2016
Schlanke Schoko, Röst und Kakaoaromen. HÄMMER!! Dunkel und schwer. Extrem komplex, wobei viele Eindrücke von Bitterschokoladenaromen dominiert werden. Obwohl auch der Trunk und das Mundgefühl schlank wirken ist das Bier trotzdem voluminös und im Nachhall kommen noch kräftige Espressosäureempfindungen hinzu. FETT!!! Ein Klassiker. 0,33l Flasche direkt von der DE MOLEN Brauerei nahe Amsterdam. Ca.4-5 Euro.

jakubwloszcz (183) - Piastów, POLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Barwa ciemnobrunatna z rubinowymi przebłyskami. Piana niezbyt obfita, ciemnobeżowa, szybko znika, ładnie oblepia szkło. Intensywny, złożony aromat, dominuje w nim kawa i czekolada, jest też nuta likierowa, paloność i trochę ciemnych owoców. W smaku alkohol jest naprawdę świetnie ukryty, pomimo, że piwo jest dość młode (zabutelkowane 03.12.2015). Jest świetnie zbalansowane, ułożone, eleganckie, jak na taką moc jest wyjątkowo pijalne. W smaku nie dominuje wyraźnie żadna z nut z aromatu, wszystkie są bardzo subtelne (może aż za bardzo), czuć czekoladowe praliny, kawę, wanilię, orzechy. Świetny RIS, z każdym łykiem można odnaleźć w nim coś nowego.
