Guinness on steroids. Kleur als Zwarte Piet in zijn beste dagen. Smaak explosie van pepernoten en borstplaat, met lekker vettige schuimkraag.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
The ’basic’ Emelisse imperial, with a slowly building but eventually rocky, beige head and ink black colour. Strong aroma of coffee, bayleaf, iron, nutmeg, peat, bitter chocolate, straw, ginger. Rounded taste of dried fruits, iron-like undertone, ashes, coffee powder, strong roasted bitterness, bit sticky finish, quite strong carbonation for the style, in the end some warming, even a bit astringent alcohol as well, not too well hidden. Meritorious attempt at an ambitious genre but not quite there yet.

Mainuh_man (176) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours black with a thick brown head that lingers. Complex malt aromas. Chocolate, cinammon, overripe fruit, alcohol, Lots of coffee flavor up front with medium sweetness. Quickly transitioning to a long, drawn out roasted malt bitterness, leaving alcohol in the throat and chest. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and minimal carbonation. Overall, some pretty unique aromas and a nice mouthfeel. Flavor profile goes a bit too quickly to the roasted malt bitterness, but still, quite an enjoyable beer.

JulienHuxley (3267) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Bierkoning. Opaque black pour with tenacious light brown foam. Aroma is rich, intense malty licorice notes, dark chocolate and a hint of smoke. Taste is intense, but keeps a nice equilibrium between sweet malty notes, umami smokiness and herbal licrorice notes, with a long bitter roasty finish. Palate is full bodied with light medium-carbonation. Imperial stout right where it should be, a winner.
