olio (6166) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
33 cl bottle. Batch? 122/2013. BBE 12.11.2018. (Rating #5666 just for the sake of it)
Pours jet black color with a small, thick beige head. Some cocoa and rye on the nose, faint chocolate and even some fruit notes. Very smooth creamy palate with dark cocoa dominant and chocolaty flavor, toasted malts and some caramel also. Feels a bit thin in the end, I was hoping for more, a disappointment. More like Baby Metal..

Idiosynkrasie (3796) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2014
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with late aakening, small to average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing tan head. Herbal hoppy aroma with perfumed touch, rosemary, lavender, dark malty background with a touch of coffee. Taste is bitter, citrusy hoppy, hints of grapefruit, orange, bitter orange, slightly roasty, dark malty background, hints of dark chocolately. Hopped with tendency towards Black IPA; not overly rich and multifaceted for an Impy Stout.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Draft sample @ Birra Expo’14 Piacenza. Noire huileuse, col épais moka laissant un filament doré au verre. Arôme est malté profond sur des notes de chocolat et caramel, une petite pointe d’amertume s’immisce en rétro-nasal avec un nez assez poudreux venant des grains. Palais est épais, malté, chocolat épais grains et caramel. Palais réchauffant sur une fine amertume et petite touche houblonnée.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 15, 2014
Sweet roasted, chestnut, some mocha, some hops. Smooth and pleasant. Taste is even more smooth. Sweet but fast from cloying, more of a tender coffee and chocolate mousse, even creamy. Pleasant bitterness. Hides the alcohol well. Really nice, almost accessible as far as imperial stouts can be that. I really dig this. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
