_angst_ (3274) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2011
Sample @ Porterfestivalen in Gothenburg on November 19. Pours brownish black with a small chocolate brown head. Smell is very complex and sweet with roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and some alcohol. Taste is sweet and fullbodied with chocolate, vanilla, raisins, port wine and a warming alcohol sensation. Finish is slightly sweet with chocolate and coffee and lasts for quite some time.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2011
500ml bottle courtesy of secret santa 2011. thanks! pours a deep, dark brown that sits black in the glass and is topped by a thin, khaki head that leaves dripping rings of lace on the glass. aroma is oustanding with heavy, rich, roasted malts, black coffee, and fresh-baked chocolate cake with subtle hints of smoke, anise, and black cherries emerging as it warms. flavor is delicious as well with a heavy dose roasted malts, charred grains, and spent coffee grains up front backed by bittersweet licorice, cacao chocolate, and sweet raisins with subtle notes of butterscotch and earth on the finish. palate is smooth and rich with light carbonation, a touch of boozy warmth, and finishes dry and roasty. overall, a great imperial stout.

Ughsmash (7270) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a sticky medium tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter milk chocolate notes and smoked malts, with lesser vanilla bean and black patent.. nothing crazy, but well-presented. The flavor found sweet chocolates, molasses, and honey at the core.. odd, bright, roasted soapy accents.. grainy on the edges with ashy roast and cocoa bitterness.. oaky notes, lots of residual roast, and moderate warmth on the finish. Medium-bodied, but filling on the palate.. lots of good stuff in there, but unfortunately the odd character is what really stuck on the finish.. still a solid brew.
