KansaiBeerLvrs (1850) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
Draft for 500 yen 9.9% at Tadg’s Epic Event. Not sure what release this was. A nice stout with coffee and caramel flavors.

Pitch black with a dark brown head and carbonation along the glass and no lacing. Nose is mainly chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, licorice, roasted barley and malts. Flavor is likewise the same with a slight boozy flavor. Body is fairly light and the carbonation starts out strong but tapers off after a few minutes. Good tasting Imperial Stout overall.

22. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Sweet and roasty nose; showing anise and a bit of soy sauce along with some milk chocolate. Creamy thickish body with soft carb. Roasty dark chocolate mid palate with a bit of good coffee. Salty and anise notes fade a bit compared to the nose. Long coffee finish. Nice impy.

Pailhead (4741) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and light vanilla. It pours a dark brown with faint orange highlights and a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate and a touch of black licorice. It finishes with moderate roasted coffee, light burnt notes, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat oily mouthfeel.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Release #3. Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with a tiny beige head that dissipates immediately and amber highlights around the sides. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, earthy roast, and faint char. The flavor hits the same slate of notes; rich, roasty flavor. Light-medium bodied, probably thinned over the past couple years, with a smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Good imperial stout.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Release #11. 10.3% ABV. Bomber from Beverages for Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the man! Pours extremely dark brown/black with an extremely dark tan head. Aroma has lots of treacle and burnt malt. Full bodied. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, chocolate, treacle, touch of heat, and bitter! Finishes all that way. Mouth smacking finish. Very impressive.
