dEnk (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle @ home. Aroma is caramel, liquorice, salt, fruity notes and more. Flavour is roasty liquorice, like a LOT of liquorice. not much else, maybe some caramel but this is all about liquorice. Too much imho.

markextrae (878) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
shared bottle sample. poured a dark black colour with a small non lasting tanned head. dark malts, weak coffee, some bitter hops, pretty boring for a imperial stout. with a very weak bodied mouthfeel for the 8,5 abv!

Kauge (63) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Bergamo airport (€ 6) in June 2014. Pours a deep dark brown with a creamy retaining head. Aroma is roasted malts and bitter chocolate, also smoked plums, maybe even blackcurrants; overall quite sweet. Taste is medium sweet with a bitter kick, especially in the finish, with huge roastiness and a hint of cocoa. Smooth yet thick, syrupy palate, not exactly full bodied but more than medium. Light carbonation. An alcoholic tingle joins the party after a short while. Good one. I’m really enjoying this as the last drink of a beautiful Sunday while watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey and Refaela’s place. Thanks Tom L. Black with a light brown head. Heavily roasty aroma with some fruitiness and chocolate. Sweetish flavor, roasty, with chocolate and a slightly burnt and bitterish finish. Full-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. Good, but doesn’t feel too "Imperial".

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle @ DTE tasting. Black color, medium sized brown head. Smell and taste malts, lightly roasty, lightly bitter. Hmm don’t feel like describing this closely. Decent.

olio (5896) - 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..
