Maris (1118) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 18/2/2015. Pours close to black with a small tan head. Has nice chocolatey nose, with some roasted malt, lots of caramel, and a touch of booze. The flavour is powerful - again lots of chocolate (milk and dark), caramel, vanilla, soy, brown sugar, and treacle. It’s very sweet up front but the sweetness is met by a sharpish roasty bitterness, which lingers in the background. The palate is lovely - very creamy, with the carbonation modest. A very enjoyable impy.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2015
Decent Russian imperial stout slightly marred by the prominence of the 11% abv. Looks terrific. inviting aroma of coffee and marshmallows. Full mouthfeel. Vegemite notes and heavy alcohol. Dry, ashy finish. Richly flavoured but a bit heavy handed - I like my alcohol more integrated. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars)

Flaska från Saveur-biere. Svart med beige skum. Söt tung doft av portvin. Smak av kaffe och lite sötma.

olliejobbins (1287) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
330ml bottle. pours jet black with no head. aroma is burnt toast, molasses, caramel, dates and prunes. quite boozy taste. thin bodied, roasted malts and molasses. very nice long lingering after taste which brings up the score. really nice warmth from the alcohol. a very good imperial stout, just not exceptional.

Maakun (1269) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Black with beautiful thick beige head, with in the middle some big bubbles. Big toasted malts, chocolate pudding, bbq, lots of roasted nuts (walnuts, Brazil nuts), rye, brown bread, caramel, fudge. Boozy with cognac and bourbon. Thick flavor but not overtly sweet, roasted bitter finish. Full bodied with creamy feel. Big beer, and well done.

Fashawn (373) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 3, 2015
Buona imperial stout, dall’Olanda arrivano sempre buoni prodotti. Birra nera con schiuma non generosa, ma fine è compatta. Odore di malti torrefatti, orzo, caffè, elegante ma poco varia. In bocca è accademia, liquirizia, orzo e caffè, con cioccolata amara. Ordinata, pulita e senza sbavature. Non stanca,cremosa e corposa. Buonissima birra.

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2014
(Bottle) Very black with small tan head. Lovely rich complex aroma - dark toffee, licorice, coffee, dates. Fantastic palate - full bodied, thick, rich, creamy, slightly sticky with velvety carbonation with some fine bright sparkle to it. Excellent taste too - again rich and complex - dark toffee / black treacle with bitter chocolate and some slight notes of dried fruit through the start and mid-palate. There are some candy / cough medicine hints. A respectable bitterness develops in the finish and stays around a long time. Fantastic beer.
