3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Crown#6. Pours transparent black with brown edge and faint brown head. Nose is roasted malt, brown sugar, some raisins and prune, not getting too much spruce, however. Flavor is roasty and dry with roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate and mildly carbonated and slightly slimey. The short aging in oak adds a nice feel, the hop addition is noticeable and compliments well, and the fact that they added no sugar is surprising considering the sweet feel this contains. Pretty good brew.

Bottle BB April 2013. Black, foamy light brown head. Not much lacing. Smell - dark fruits like cherry, chocolate, Fry’s Turkish Delight. Body - medium to light, light carbonation, foamy in the mouth. Taste - not a great deal going on - tangy fruits, cold milky tea, alcohol. Smell is the best part.

Belgian attempt to brew an IRS. They made it typicaly Belgian, sweet and full, with a less aggresive tone than its American counterpart. Nice.

Pours black with brown head. Aromas of fruit and yeast. Strong licorice taste. Well-balanced, but slightly watery. Light to medium body. Good, but nothing extraordinary.

Pitch black with a solid frothy tan head. Noses of bread, burnt toast, roasted malts and light peat/turf soil. Rather mild texture light sweet with a faint salty note and light bitter. Full body with a pleasant finish lingering on the palate. Really good stout, well balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared via Atheist Priest. Almost pitch black colour with a creamy tan coloured head. Big aroma with spice, roast a hint of pungent hops and something sweet. On the palate it is rich, roasted, bitter but there is this wonderfully dark fruit quality that makes this a complex brew. Very good stuff.

Dobre i tresciwe imerialne ciemne piwo. Geste i nieprzezroczyste. Fajna krachlowa butelka. Wspaniale wyglada i apetycznie. Ale za malo jak dla mnie nut palonych ciut slodkawe i za malo rozgrzewajacego alkoholu. Nie mniej jest to bardzo dobre piwo. Finisz pelny wytrawny i lekko palony.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

Only Belgian stout I’ve had. Don;t see how it differs from a non-Belgian imperial stout. I liked it. Not too think, softly carbonated. Very pleasant burnt malts tasting of chocolate, espresso and dried fruit. And pretty smooth, bitter hops.
