corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pitch black and completely opaque without even the faintest hint of lighter color and a two finger, frothy beige head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a cap/thick, lasting ring. Splotchy lacing left behind. Really impressive smoke/rauchbier aroma. More like an American version like Alaskan smoked porter with tons of smokey charcoal, barbecued meat, campfire and butane but doesn’t overpower the roasted and sweet malt notes of chocolate, coffee been, fudge and oatmeal. Smells incredible! Viscous full body with a slightly less aggressive smoke profile than nose hinted at. Still burnt, smokey, mesquite tasting with charcoal, campfire, barbecued bacon and wood flavor but it’s countered by sweet chocolate, lactic cream, toffee, oatmeal and coffee bean. Full bodied for a porter and the smoke is nicely integrated while remaining the dominant flavor.

Bouteille. Moustache Blanche. Robe noire huileuse, timide mousse marron. Nez malté, grillé et torréfié. Chocolat, mélasse, fruits confits, paprika enveloppé de belles notes fumées. Bouche sirupeuse, ample sur le pain noir grillé et la fève de cacao. Final intense marquée par l?amertume, le réglisse , le pruneaux, le café, la terre et le bois fumé.

Alengrin (3685) - BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2015
Rating from old notes. A spiced imperial stout with ink black colour and thin beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, elderberry syrup, toasted bread; rounded, sweet fruity taste, thick and deep malt backbone, chocolatey accent, soft mouthfeel, dry and long finish with spiciness, roasted bitterness and warming alcohol. Very interesting, too bad it apparently does not exist anymore.

MPA (866) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Aged for a couple of years in my cellar. Black with a nice brown head. Aroma of chocolate, prunes, cocoa, coffee and dark roasted malts. Think palate with a flavour of coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and dark fruit. Sweetness is wrapped with malty, bitter notes reminding of coffee beans. Very solid and powerful flavour. I really like this a lot.

daje (2782) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Fully black body with a beautiful brown head. Roasted aroma with dark chocolate, ash, leather and earthy hops. Taste is light peat/smoked wood, dark chocolate, fresh roasted coffee, licorice and a light grass note. Good dry and warm mouthfeel, thick body, roasty finish with ash and leather. This is some good stuff!

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, dark brown head. Intense, sweetish, dark malty aroma has a nuttily touch, notes of treacle, molasses, vanilla infused chocolate (ice) cream, liquorice, a touch of lovage. Taste is initially dry, roasty dark malty, finds its way over tarmac and shoe polish to woody and smoky, a moderately sweet liquorice basis is present throughout; some warming alcohol in the finish. Oily texture, sticky palate.

tom10101 (4245) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Black with a huge thick dark brown head and little lacing. Aroma is an interesting mix of vinous notes, roasted malt, liquorice and dark chocolate hints of smoke. Taste is also of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vinous/fruity notes, light smoked and light bitterness. Medium/full body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly vinous mouthfeel. Light alcohol warming in the finish. Interesting because it’s not a sweetness bomb and there’s a nice balance between the vinous and roasty presence. Quite tasty.
