procraste (247) - FRANCE - MAR 10, 2015
C’est très étonnant ! Une mer huileuse tranquille mais avec un petit goût que j’ai du mal à définir ... Disons un café un peu amer dans l’herbe grasse ... Il y a un trainée dans le goût qui m’interpelle, me dérange et m’intrigue ... A nouveau, une bière que j’ai apprécié mais dont je ne saurais dire que j’aime vraiment ...

Svesse (7058) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
(Bottle) Black colour with dense, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, hints of tar, a touch of dried pineapple and citrus (probably the Sorachi Ace addition) and a vinous, warming finish with a generous coffee bitterness and a whiff of alcohol passing by. Full body, quite heavy and oily mouthfeel. Some sweetness coming through. I didn’t expect the hop character to come through this fairly heavy imperial stout, but there is a touch of tropical fruit in all the coffee, chocolate and liquorice. Very nice.

ABT_S54 (286) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a hint of garnet and a caramel coloured bubbly head. Aroma is hop riven but still fundamentally an imperial stout although it is close to becoming a black IPA when chilled. Mouthfeel is excellent and the taste is buttery smooth and tastes almost barrel aged. Once warmed up the hop present is less present and the heavy imperial stout is left to do its thing. Better than the standard version and not far behind the maker’s mark version.

33cl bottle at home Appearance: Black with a creamy mocha head. Leaving some lacing. Aroma: chocolate, tropical tones, earthy tones, roasted malts, coffee, red and dark fruit. Taste: A Quite Hoppy stout. Expect roast ed maltand hop bitterness a very cimplex palte with dark b and tropical and citrus fruits and chocolate tones. Cold it’s very black IPA like Warmed up it’s a Stout.. The taste tones move forwards and backkwards depending on the temperature. medium- full body, slightly below average carbonation. creamy texture. Very good and interresting brew. Serious andidate for my best beer of 2015.

Drank with Rik 26-01-2015 while watching The Hobbit I. This is very well-balanced beer. Quite rich taste. It has to warm up in your mouth, but in the middle the taste really comes to live. Soft start and rich ending. Very drinkable. Nice beer.

ShivanDragon (2486) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Zag deze fles opeens bij de Mitra in Leeuwarden staan, ik ging er vanuit dat ik deze al gehad had en zou er achteloos aan voorbij lopen, echter toch maar snel ff checken en wat schetste mijn verbazing.... nee nog niet gehad... snel pakken dus... schenkt mooi stroperig zwart met zeer fijne bruine kraag (ziet er fantastisch uit), Aroma is ook heerlijk ; chocolade, geroosterde en gebrande mouten, haver, zoet, alcohol, Tevens wat tonen van een BIPA. ’t zal van de sorachi ace hop wezen, maar doet het goed..
Smaken zijn die van een mooie niet al te uitgesproken IRS, de volmoutigheid zit er lekker in, chocolade, alcohol, stevige zoetigheid, gebranden mouten en het bittertje wat erbij hoort, de hoptonen komen ook wat door in de vorm van den, zoethout, laurier, iets van vanille icm de zoetigheid en iets á la haver (oatmeal) romigheid, koffie en de bijbehorende droge tonen ook.
lage co2, mooie volle body, romig qua mondgevoel, iets van olie achtige structuur, heerlijk gebalanceerd, kan er niet meer van maken dat dit gewoon een erg goed bier is. Maar goed dat mijn ook er nog snel op was gevallen anders was ik dit heerlijke bier voorbij gegaan...
