2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is sweet, but at the same time acidic - I’m thinking infection - but it might be the hard roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with acidic notes of lemon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cL bottle, courtesy of Bov. Pours dark brown to black with a small, slight bubbly chocolate brown head. Aroma is wineous and roasted malt, light boozy alcohol presence too. Solid malty flavoured, wineous note and distinct alcohol presence and smoothness in mouthfeel. Lingering fruity and roasted barley malt dense flavoured finish. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Opaque black with no head. Aroma is is quite sweet caramel malts along with toffee, alcohol and some slight burnt notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with licorice. Way too sweet flavours to be enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottled, thanks Bov! Opaque very dark brown, very lively. The aroma has loads of licorice and a whiff of lemon. Very potent and malty with notes of coffee and plum brandy. There is some syrupy sweetness, but salt and tar dominates the finish. The alcohol is very evident.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2006 Timpériale, 2005-06-27, 7-4-8-4-14=37
Black color; the head is not persistent. Aroma of malt and roasted malt. Good body strength, thick enough, malty, strong liquorice and caramel, powerful; a hint of yeast; good taste.
Maybe it will be better in one year…
Timpériale Brassin d’Essai, 2005-06-27, 5-4-6-3-11=29
Black color; big creamy head. Light aroma of rosted malt. Strong Stout, but with a fermentation problem (some sourness and bitterness, unpleasant). Very bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
More or less black colour. Aroma (as collected by my snifter) of light roast, applewood smoked cheddar, a bit of nail polish remover (phenols!) and cervelat salami. Unconventional, yes, but mostly stuff I like. The flavour, however, veers in a different direction. The smokey/meaty aspect is still there, but plays a sublimated role to the green, sharp tartness of unripe gooseberries. There are some pleasant fruity notes in that tartness, too, like plums and cloudberries. The body remains full and provides a date-like sweetness. But overall, the tartness is just too much. Without it, this would be a rich and nuanced beer where the roast, smoke and fruit notes create magic but the balance is out of whack here.
