beernbourbon (1481) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pour is outrageous. Incredibly thick and totally black with a deep red/ brown lasting head. Just beautiful. Aroma is surprisingly subdued with hints of dark roasted malt, dried fruit, faint tobacco, and some alcohol notes as it warms. Flavor is awesome. Rich, deep, roasted malt with hints of dark fruits and very very little alcohol. Finish is long with notes of toffee and rich sweet malt. Palate is so wonderfully soft and luscious. Sticky and huge but quite drinkable for 26%. This is one of the best beers I have ever had. The only thing I can even consider deducting for is the somewhat subdued aroma with a touch of alcohol. So good.

WhatDaddy (52) - Volos, GREECE - MAY 3, 2016
0,75lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece First of all, you did not feel the terrifying 26%ABV - at last not when you sip it, afterwards you will melting iceblocks. That’s amazing, it will not burn your throat. No head of course, aroma is liquerish with caramel-coffe (toffe) notes - gets more intense as it warms up. The taste ist immense with just very small sip (100ml will make a lot of sips here) and kicks in with the sweetness surrounded by the alkohol and that deep, toffe like note. The aftertaste is there, when the beer is long gone. Not the everyday joy, but for special moments with friends a top class beer.

Habanero (3714) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2016
Bottled. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee notes, vanilla and licorice. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with an alcohol bite. Full bodied, oily texture and soft to flat carbonation. A great, massive Impy. 🌟🌟🌟😈

Mesjasz (712) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 18, 2016
Kieliszek w browarze De Struise. Czarny kolor, mala piana, piwo bardzo oleiste, płyn zostaje na ścianach szkła. Aromat bardzo intensywny, czekoladowy, palony, kawowy, czerwone owoce. Smak podobny, bardzo złożony i cudownie intensywny. Tekstura tego piwa jest cudowna, gęsta, gładka, wypełnia całe usta smakiem. Alkoholu praktycznie nie czuć. Prawdziwe dzieło sztuki piwnej!

Czarne z delikatna pianka. Intensywne ciemne slody w aromacie, palony karmel, czekolada, trufle, wanilia. Analogicznie tylko bardziej intensywnie w smaku. Niska goryczka. Pi?knie ukryty alkohol (zadziwiajace). Cudowny trunek.

Rask0lnikov (435) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2016
On tap at the brewery Oostvleteren. Dark brown, almost black colour. No head. Aroma of toffee, bourbon, dark fruits, vanilla and raisins. Hints of wood. Toffee and caramel at first. Raisins and vanilla in the middle. Hints of oakiness, bit of smoke and bourbon. So creamy and tender. Reminds barley wine. Would not belive the abv. However, still heavy bodied, extremely low carbonated, really well balanced. Beer for very special moments with very special people.

daje (3163) - NORWAY - FEB 16, 2016
4cl glass at Grünerløkka Brygghus, july 28th 2015. Black and thick body with no head. Aroma is strong roasty with licorice, coffee, tar and alcohol. Taste of strong chocolate and vanilla, of course with a notable alcohol presence. Though to be at this strength I think the alcohol is hidden pretty well. Heavy malt and choco finish with a delicios bitterness. An impressive piece of madness.

rxeight (2331) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2016
750ml painted label. Aroma is very roasty. Obviously European imperial stout. Taste is Super dark malt. Lots of char. Dark fruit. Fig and raisin. Doesn’t smell or taste anywhere near 26%, but you can feel the heat afterward. Body is super thick and oily.

Dfonorow (1992) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Pour is pitch black with no head at all. Aroma and flavor of bourbon, coffee grounds, charcoal, and oak chips. Finish is boozy dark chocolate. Good, but hard to drink more than a few oz of it.
