NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Tap @ De Molen Brewery. Black colored brew. Coffee, dark chocolate aroma with some liquorice. Coffee, dark chocolate and light liquorice in the flavor. Could not taste a lot of the whisky malts. Balanced imperial stout, good decent bitterness, but not too overwhelming. Could be a bit more creamy, but it’s pretty thick already. Looking forward of trying a botlle when aged some more! Another winner from De Molen. Aged 1 year. Very smooth. More whisky tones, very nice.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2008
Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours absolutely black with a small, film head with little bubbles round the edges of my glass. Super chocolate aroma, light smoke, toffee and coffee. Some soft roastiness as well. Low carbonation, managing that great oily/creamy combination. Super flavour, good dark chocolate, some smoke, caramel, a peity edge. But it is the chocolate that takes the crown and runs around with it, joyously cheering (more or less like I did).

JorisPPattyn (8034) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2008
Draught Black beer, small rim. Pure coffee nose, Nespresso... Black coffee & chocolate in the taste, with just a hint of some spices, but little else. Finish is sweet however. Very slick, nearly oil. Crude one, that is. Not a small stout, just a tad sweet, maybe quite some unrefermented sugars?

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
Fad. EBF 2008 En lille smule karbonering giver et lille brundt skum som igen får den til at ligne en cola der har stået et stykke tid. Flot balance i øllen der skjuler alkoolen særdeles godt, men mundfylden er en smule tynd og det trækker ned.

Draught at EBF 2008. Black with no foam. Roasted malt aroma, with aniseed, cough medicine spices, coffee, chocolate, and alcohol. Thick body, flat mouthfeel. Good balance.
