jesperhammer (2883) - Copenhagen, - NOV 12, 2012
09-NOV-2012, bottle from Ølbutikken, @Ulkløbben meeting @my place. Black with no head. Sweet roast. Coffee. Does Tokyo* not have peat’y elements? I find none here. Quite sweet. Is that hte Horizon infuence? Low carbonation, alcoholic but not really 17% alcoholic. Lovely drink.

Bosskie (397) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Pitch black, weak head, not a lot of carbonation. Coffee bread creamy smell. Raisins and fruity. Apples, cookies, cinnamon, subtly alcoholic. Pepper. Bread. Taste is quite sweet. Lots of coffee. The sweetness is a bit overbearing. Spicy with a sweetish alcoholic finish. Oily and fizzy and dry. Astringent. Expected more.

Beese (1771) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog, London. Poured a thick black, with a dense tan head. Huge aroma of dark rum, molasses, treacle and spice. Really thick, syrupy mouth feel. Massive complex flavours of golden syrup, coffee, roasted malt and liquorice. Finish was aniseed, espresso, vanilla pods, burnt sugar and burnt malt. Wonderful.

Dark black body with a medium size dark brown head. Aroma is strong roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, raisins, some smokiness. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with medium bitterness. Full body, thick texture, nice pleasant bitter finish. Lovely.

Absolutnie czarne z drobinkami chmielu na dnie. Piany w zasadzie brak, ale moc robi swoje dlatego nie ma się co dziwić. W aromacie kawa, czekolada i mocno alkoholowe cherry. Od razu czuć alkohol i ciało, którego jest cała masa. Wspomniany alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk. Czekoladowo kawowy smak z dodatkiem wiśni i rodzynek. Wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego. Goryczka też konkret.

as (161) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JUL 23, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 0,33 l bottle from Craft Beer Store in Hamburg, Germany. 15.2% ABV. The 1000th particular beer I tried in my life. Opaque, deep black color with a small brownish head. Intensive bitter / alcoholic kick right from the start. Then the usual aromas for the style jump in - roasted malts, coffee (lots of it) dark chocolate, raisins. The aftertaste then becomes dry and bitter again. Beautiful drinking experience, even though it’s a bit too robust (and yeah, overpriced) for my taste.

dEnk (3795) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle @ bready, thanks vaiz! Aroma is huge liquorice, coffee, roast, burned molasses. Flavour is very roasty liquorice molasses coffee madness, hugely bitter and roasty yet sweet at the same time. Quite some alcohol in the finish. Long lingering roasty liquorice. Hefty but very nice.

Imperial stout d’autore! Colore nero soia ed schiuma inesistente. Al naso molto complessa con note di soia, caffè, cioccolato, liquore, radici e spezie. In bocca equilibrata tra dolcezza, amarezza ed alcolicità. Nel palato una splosione di sapori concentrati in un corpo denso e grasso che finisce in una lunga e persistente aromaticità retronasale. Si tratta di una birra magnifica ma dificile da bere. Comunque un capolaboro!
