Plovmand (6704) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is hops, chocolate, bourbon, dark fruit and some roast. The flavour is lots of dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco, light smoke, caramel, molasses and hops. Full bodied. Nice and complex.

erickok (3972) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Deep black colour. Sweetness of cherry and hops. Heavy malts, coffee or even liquorish. Long bitter aftertaste. Amazing flavour. (On tap at the brewery.)

What a great beer. Lots of dark cherry. In fact it was like drinking liquefied Black Forest Gateau.

RichardGretton (4345) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black with a light light brown head. The aroma is sweetly roasted, and the flavour is rich and malty. Overall a very nice rich and roasted beer.

leaparsons (8478) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Black with a medium beige head. Aromas are coffee and cream with liquorice and herbal notes. Blackberry with dark chocolate. Smoky with some leather and soy. Flavours are pretty sweet brown sugar with chocolate and bitter roast malts. Herbal and fruity with cream. Sweet on the finish. Quite a sweet, good impy stout.

Backlog - begone!! 750ml bottle, corked and caged, 2008 vintage, bottle #74 - shared by blankboy via trade with MadMitch76 (cheers!) with me, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. Hazy deep ruby pour with an average tan head (4-). Dry, leafy roast sweet caramel aroma, slightly smoky, spicy, and initially a bit metallic - not overtly "impy" but definitely Belgian and roasty (7-). The taste is dry, a bit boozy, coffee bean and cocoa malt, a bit herbal and pungently spicy. Light-bodied, a bit astringent slick and mildly carbonated, with a boozy finish. Didn’t mind it, but was in the mood for a STOUT, and this didn’t really deliver.

cgreb (405) - Marburg, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2010
bottle (2008) - almost black beer with no head. Very smooth chocolate and somehow spicy aroma with hints of whisky. Flavour is quite malty which hides the high alcohol. Nice chocolate hints. Full body. Very low carbonation.

asheft (2615) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
[bottle--2008 edition] Sweet grainy and pumpernickely aroma with a potent noble hops note along with chocolate and a little butterscotch. Dark brown appearance with no head. The flavour is sweet pumpernickel with chocolate and, interestingly, a strong noble hops flavour that makes this beer pretty unique. Thick body, no carbonation, sweet chocolate finish.

Ughsmash (7224) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2010
750mL bottle, bottled on 2/1/08, #112 of 524. This was corked, caged, AND WAXED, so I feared the worst.. but 15 minutes in the freezer cracked and broke up the wax, and it opened without a problem. Poured a lighter shade of mahogany with garnet highlights.. dense cap of beige head capped it nicely. The aroma picked up sweet roasted and lightly charred black malts laced with vanilla, honey, and a little treacle.. sweet overall.. peppery warmth around the edges, but no rough alcohol (or hops) were apparent.. almost candy-like with its sweetness, and it was enticing. The flavor found mostly honey and molasses at the core with moderate roast to ’em.. smoky, charred notes joined in.. hotter on the finish with charred wood-inspired bitterness and dry peppery alcohol.. warmed up the belly well. Medium-bodied with dense-ish carbonation on the palate.. warm impression with a fair amount of residual sugars in the end.. this grew on me and I really dug the flow by the end. Very good, but not $23 good.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour that allows for a beautiful ruby shine when lit. Greyish, tanned medium-sized head. Very good-looking. Aroma has a lot of dark, burnt caramel, sweet, malty notes, sugar, liqourice, subtle roast, vanilla, sweet, dark chocolate, some plums and some faint hops. Taste is big on malty sweetness, caramel and bittersweet liquorice as well as a little roast. It also has some oak and port going on, further emphasising the sweetness. Also some dark berries and vanilla. Some hops in the finish. Thick palate, sticky, oily texture, medium duration, low carbonation, medium-full body. A bit too sweet for my taste, but it is nonetheless well-rounded and well-balanced, and deserves acclaim. I can imagine it working out quite well as a dessert-beer.
