MaartenRF10 (1869) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2013
Clear to hazy dark brown, light beige head. Nice imperial stout. Very mild, not much hops or bitterness, but some overripe fruity sweetness, a hint of bourbon, sweet chocolate and mild roasted coffee malts. Nice soft carbo, medium to good body.

VsXsV (3964) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2012
33 cl bottle. Thanks to Countbeer for this one! Dark brown/red/mahogany clear liquid with huge off-white to tan head. Aroma chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, grassy and fruity hops and caramel. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter, smoke and has notes of coffee and caramel. A bit bland. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation for an imp stout. Too thin for an imp stout. Very drinkable. Quite good but a bit boring.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle: Big airy and slow disappearing beige to light tan head on top of a deep and darker brown beer. The pour is even close to a clear brown pour, the glass filled does not ring a bell that this is actually an imperial stout. There are also some smaller thingies/grains floathing in the beer. Smell malts, caramel, some barleys, herbs. Does not remind me of an imperial stout, more some kind of a hoppy barley wine. Taste barleys, malts, autumn herbs and spices, nuts, leaves, rosehip, clay, caramel, slight hint of chocolate, slighter hint of liquorice and the slightest hint of coffee. Low to medium (bit nasty/grainy) bitter. Herby grassy grainy aftertaste. The taste does more or less remind me of a boozy (dunkler) bo(c)k beer. Low to medium carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. For an impy, this is not good, for a beer, this is ok.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle at ’t Arendsnest. Almost black, small tan head. Good roasted caramel and chocolate aroma, even smoked notes. Sweet chocolate flavours, balanced by salty meat and roasted coffee flavours. Full-bodied. Quite enjoyable- this a style that the Dutch master.

Borresteijn (6491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2009
33cl Bottle at ’t Arendsnest, shared with and by fonefan and brugmansia. Deep dark reddish brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of sugar, caramel, liquorice and laurel. Flavour is rather sweet, sugary, liquorice, laurel, some chocolate and roasted coffee, light bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, but has a bit of a watery mouthfeel at times. Decent, but a tad too sweet imo.

altonbrownd (5768) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Bottle from Bier Koning. Slightly soft dark brown body with rocky tan head. Sweet and roasted malty nose. Strong taste of malts, chocolate and coffee. Some caramel and molasses. Sweet and smooth. Goes down like a shake, with some vanilla towards the end. Definitely a quality Stout.
