Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Draught at GBBF 2012. Poured black, with a very small amount of tan head. Aroma of rich coffee, port, leather, roast malt and vanilla. Super smooth, rich mouthfeel. Complex flavours, of dark berries, black cherries, molasses, dark rum and slight smoke. Finish was warming booze, ash, burnt malt, espresso and some bitter hop.

Bottle from the De Hopduvel, Gent, Belgium. Imperial Russian Stout is my current favorite type of beer. Pours black with a brown head. This beer is not aged in barrels but one of the thing that I really liked is, it doesn’t leave a heavy coffee taste/flavour in your mouth. Really loved it! Very successful!

Stark - schwarz - voll. Sehr gutes Stout aber es ist wahrscheinlich mein Problem dass ich mit dieser Biersorte nicht so warm werde... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsquire (3663) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Dark beer with some cola hints with only a token few bubbles when I poured it. Nose of rich ripe fruit, alcohol and darkly malted grains. Sweet beer with lots of brown sugar, burnt toast, ripe pit fruit, bitter chocolate and sweetened coffee. There is a strong, balancing bitterness throughout. Nice sipping beer.

guzgorog (410) - FRANCE - NOV 18, 2014
Noire, fin col de mousse chocolat. Nez de malts grillés, chocolat, pruneaux, noisettes, alcool. Bouche sur le chocolat, cerise griotte à l’eau de vie, alcool. Forte amertume, légère acidité, alcool important, corps liquoreux. Bonne imperial stout mais manque de complexité, à voir dans ses versions élevées en fût !
