Fluxing (557) - POLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Brak jakichkolwiek dat na etykiecie, kupione zostalo 2014.05.12, wiec mozna domniemywac, ze w momencie picia ma okolo rok od zabutelkowania. Kolor prawie czarny, lekkie brunatne przeblyski na brzegach. Piana gwaltownie sie tworzy, ale juz po kilku sekundach wlasciwie nic z niej nie zostaje. W aromacie bardziej jak porter, bardzo duzo suszonych sliwek i rodzynek, sporo melanoidyn, dalej delikatne niuanse kawy, gorzkiej czekolady i kakao, delikatna nuta alkoholowa, ale szlachetna, przywodzaca na mysl sliwowice, po czasie wychodzi tez lekka mleczna slodycz i nuty orzechow laskowych, nie jest zle, ale spodziewalem sie wiekszego bogactwa. W odczuciu bardzo pelne, geste, zawiesiste, wrecz kluchowate; niskie, ale odczuwalne wysycenie. W smaku nie ma juz watpliwosci co do stylu, zdecydowanie jest to RIS, wyraznie palony i kawowy, lekko czekoladowy i mleczny, ale to w zasadzie tyle, nie ma polowy albo i wiecej elementow obecnych w aromacie, do tego lekki sciagajaco-piekacy alkohol, niemniej jednak jest to bardzo smaczne i nawet dobrze pijalne. Goryczka srednia, mocno ziolowa, ale z delikatnymi nutami zywiczno-grejpfrutowymi.

Garrold (2459) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, very dark, chestnut brown. Film and halo of sticky, light brown head. Cherry truffle. Wet leather. Milk chocolate. White chocolate. Some vanilla. Bit of burnt meatiness. Unputdownable. Taste is bittersweet dark chocolate. Smooth, rich, silky palate. There’s a green, light bitter hoppiness behind all this, that keeps things getting too sickly. Finishes long, dark chocolate bitter. Not too sweet, or rich, and silly drinkable.

@ Agards väg 5/2-15. Roasted malty with chocolate, cacao, coffee and vanilla, notes of banana (in the aroma). Body is full, the finish is dry, bitter and roasted with notes of chocolate, cacao and coffee.

Bottle, 2014 vintage. Roasted malt aroma with smoke and chocolate notes. Pours black with a thin light brown head with some lacing. Starts with rich chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Finishes smooth with smokey flavor coming through with the chocolate and the roastiness. Good imperial stout!

Bottle (12oz $4): Black with tan head. Not remembering the details other than it was a good (average) Imperial Stout.

Beardaxe (293) - - JAN 28, 2015
Poured from bottle into Teku glass. I was not expecting much from this since i was not a fan of ILWMS, but ended up really enjoying it. Moderate sharp carbonation, decent body. Heavy roast that is bold, but doesn’t cross the line to being obnoxious. A very nice sweet maltiness balances out the beer. It’s flavorful and intense, but it never overwhelms you like ILWMS. Exercising a bit of restraint with this one did wonders.

12 oz bottle shared. Pours a jet black with a patchy tan head. Very smokey stout. Big roasted malt aroma. Roasted and smokey flavor, though lighter in body. A bit of caramel. A lot going on in this one. Good beer.

Bottle (12 oz). As "Naked Lunch in a Copenhagen Heavenly Resto". From Sammy, thanks!

Appearance: Pitch black with a medium thick brown head and little lacing.

Aroma: Ashes is dominant, tobacco, roasted malt, dark chocolate and liquorice.

Taste: Ashes is the main flavor too. Tobacco, roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Silky/velvety mouthfeel. Long lasting ashy finish.

Overall: Lack a bit of balance, mainly because it’s too ashy. Not overly complex either. Not a fiasco, just a forgettable and average Imperial Stout.
