hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle dated bb dec/2011 from nbutler on 2/2/11. Surprising pale color… porter orange with a beige head. Spotty yeast clumps floating around. Aroma of molasses, harsh roast, black raisins, ash and wet green wood. Loads of ashiness in the flavor mixes with more wood, raisins, roast and a bitter cocoa-like astringency. There is a light sourness on the finish. It is light bodied considering the alcohol content but I can’t taste any of it. Weird… and neat. 7/3/7/3/15

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap: the aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, plum, alcohol, and faint roast. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that leaves some nice webbing behind for lacing. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and lighter caramel. The is some plum in the background. The finish has notes of roast, espresso, vanilla, and light smoke. Alcohol/heat is also quite noticeable. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a solid Imperial Stout, but the alcohol/heat is a little too prevalent.

yackery (155) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
11.6 oz bottle pours a shade light of muddy lake opaque with a dime of head in a pint glass and a thin and fast but solidly-covering lacing. Aroma is of roasted caramel, bateria, and a note of alcohol. Taste is most like bitter chocolate with sweet and salty notes and all. Palate is full and creamy.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle courtesy of ksurkin pours darkness with full mocha head. The aroma is sweet malts, dark roasted malts, some black licorice and toffee. The taste is pretty darn rich with big dark roasted malts, black licorice, molasses, spicy hops and boozy heat notes right into the finish. Very nice bold flavored sipper.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 22, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 The purple bottom reminds me in nothing of Zeeland where it comes from. :-) Neither do the looks... Big black body with nutty brown head. Surprisingly hoppy aroma; floral, resin, toffee, cookie dough and pecan. Light to medium bodied but packing loads of flavour. A malty sweetness, slightly fatty, but halfway really punches out the hops. Left with a slightly sticky feel that I quite like. Great brew! (33cl bottle, 3,00 EUR?)

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle 33 cl @ Alko, Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours pitch black with a small bubbly brown head leaving lacing. Aroma is rich fullbodied malty, dark fruits, hoppy, roasted, slightly sweet and alcohol. Fullbodied velvety mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted, acidy, meaty, fruity, bitter, slightly sweet, dark fruits and warming alcohol. Fruity tingling palate. Finishes roasted and longlived bitter tart.

Hermod (3034) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle from Alko. Poured black color with a thin brown head. Roasted malt and milk chocolate in aroma. Coffee and roasted malt in flavor, coffee coming more through in finish, with some chocolate also. Alcohol well hidden. Nice IS.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Another great beer that I should have left for another occasion. Pulled it out of the cooler during a concert in 90 degree weather, bad mistake. I just couldn’t enjoy the flavors and aromas. It was pitch black and had a nice aroma to it, but my mouth was parched and I needed something lighter at the time.
