“When I copied the famous Even More Jesus, I had to ask myself as an artist, why am I doing this? I didn’t honestly know. It was just an instinct about beer as pure form… in a sense this stout is like a metaphor for freedom - the sum of all the beauty that surrounds me and my perfect contemporary existence.”

Hoozah, I love a good stout. Oil black. Thick tan lacing. Coffee. Slight nuttiness. Hot aftertaste (11 abv) but not overpowering.

tightslice (832) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is coffee, charred fruits, dark chocolate. Taste is smoked, charred dark fruits that have been fermented into a boozy black concoction that will haunt you. Amazing.

martjoobolut (2725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle (from beergium). Pours dark brown. Aroma is sweet and bitter, roast, fruits, alcohol. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, cherry, malt, ash. Finish is sweet with dry bitterness and some booze. Overall: ok-ish, but too boozy and somewhat just not balanced.

suurjuust (2736) - ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle shared by Mart. Almost black beer, very small head. Nose is chocolate and coffee, hints of booze in the background, licorice, some sweetness, some citrc hops. Flavor is sweet, way sweeter than the nose would suggest, caramel, some roast. Slightly sticky finish, caramel and chocolate, some alcohol. Lots of booze in the aftertaste. Too much booze.

Salwal (302) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle at home poured into nosing glass. Pours pitch black with thick beige to brown head. Nose of roasted malts coffee and liquorice. Taste is quite bitter for a Stout, intense residual sweetnes, sticky creamy mouthfeel. Plums, raisins and dryed fruit in General. I like it while I find the sweetnes a bit out of bounce...

anstei (977) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Faint nose of boozy burnt malts, but really low. Strong taste though, some sweetness, healthy bitterness, still boozy and powerful. Charming palate, strong nuts and booze again. But all that booze actually works really well and is not off at all. Nice, but not overwhelming.

Ritzn (209) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2016
Deep black with no head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Also a hint of raisins and licorice. Taste is bittersweet. Very harmonic. Low carbonation with little bubbles on your tongue and viscous fluid. Full body. Long bitter finish. Overall amazing. This is the prototype of every imperial stout.

Koelschtrinker (16316) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2016
Recht süßer, dennoch halbwegs runder Malzantrunk. Brotig-süßer Mittelteil, Kakaonoten, etwas Kaffee. Unsüffig, dafür vollmundig und lecker. 8/10/7/10/10/9

Tognetta (669) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 21, 2016
Totalmente negra, turva, espuma marrom de ótima formação e persistência, cremosa. No aroma prevalesce o café e álcool, chocolate e cacau em segundo plano. Paladar de dulçor intenso, amargor médio torrado. Corpo denso, licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Final persistente misto de café espresso e achocolatado, dulçor continua intenso, leve defumado com o aumento da temperatura. Muito boa.
