ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 27, 2010
Ébenfekete színe van, aminek a mélyén valami egészen mély, vöröses csillogás van, hogyha egy erősebb fényforrás elé tartjuk. Vékony kis krémes és világosbarna hab fedi a tetejét, ami gyorsan eltűnik. Illata meglepően édeskés, áfonya likőrös, erdei bogyós gyümölcsös, egy kis nedves dohánnyal és pörkölt mandulával. Íze is édeskésen, gyümölcsszörpösen és égetett cukrosan kezdődik, aztán jön egy nagy adag maláta, keserű gyógyfüvek, borókabogyó, fekete csokoládé és kávébab. Vastag, nehéz és olajos teste van, a magas alkoholtartalom pedig nagyon szépen elvan rejtve, egyáltalán nem tolakodó. Utóíze mint egy édesebb fajta pipadohányé, keserédes, száraz és hosszan tartó. Fantasztikus és különleges egy sör, nem könnyű és nem a mindennapokra való, csakis különleges alkalmakra tudom elképzelni.

Sloth sent me this 2008 bottle some time ago. It has been lurking and daring me to drink it from the depths of my basement fridge for seemingly years. I figured it was about time. Bottle #205. Nose of flat dark malts and some anaerobic compost. Thin, thin head. First taste is raisins and plums on the tip of your tongue. Body is powerful yet moderate to mild in weight. Subdued and devious, for I found it a bit hard to get out of the barko-lounger.

750ml, waxed, corked & caged bottle dated 5/3/2008, #220/548 courtesy of madmitch76. thanks, ken! opens with a loud pop and pours a surprisingly light mahogany brown with a thick, creamy, light beige heand a nice lacing. aroma is damn nice, was a bit odd at first, but really started to pop as this one warmed with notes of heavy, roasted malts, caramel, prunes, raisins, and licorice with notes of burnt coffee, light hops, and port. flavor is delicious with sticky, sweet dark fruits, cognac, caramel, and port wine up front backed by licorice, dark malts, roast, and light coffee with hints of candy sugar and chocolate-covered nuts on the back end. palate is medium bodied with solid carbonation and a lingering, sweet finish. overall, a very solid, unque imperial stout.

hawthorne00 (2768) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle. Wax hides an agglomerated cork (hmm). Darkish brown with a good coat of light tan head. Not opaque. Aroma of stewed fruits, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, cognac. Texture is quite light and more creamy than oily. Very boozy upfront. Stewed and macerated dried fruit sweetness is more prominent than roasted flavours. Quite a lot of pine and herbal bitterness. Some astringent coffee. Bitterness disguises the considerable sweetness, but my body is saying "sugar rush". Long finish with roasted and hop bitterness, some wood. If there is such a thing, this is at the Belgian Strong Ale end of Imperial Stout - the roasted and hop bitter touches seem like accents on a strong dark Belgian beer. Good and quite elegant, but maybe needed some more time to meld. Enjoyed a second glass more than the first.

Via trade with Ragesaq. Aroma is an amazing mix of mild roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak, pine. Appearance is what you would expect: deep black, tan head. The flavor is like the aroma, coffee, alcohol, chocolate and vanilla, oak, pine needles. The finish is a alcohol warming, followed by a pine hop/noble hop bittering, which is strong, and REALLY hangs in there. Medium to Medium/thick in body, a tad thin for the style. Excellent. Thanks, Aaron.

This beer was a little too sweet for my taste. However, most people seem to like it, so don’t let me stop anyone from trying it. I’m just not a big fan of really sweet beers.
