phredrik (1023) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle @ ØlKonsortiet summer shananigans. Aroma has a good barrel character, toasted oak, liquorice, vanilla and dark fruits. Taste has much more maltiness and fullness than the brewmaster’s editions, restrained bourbon character, lots of chocolate and liquorice notes, and somewhat more roasted overall. Nice and mellow.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Impy indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

gEUS (1471) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2015
bottle at home - 2013 vintage. Pours deep dark brown with a small beige head. Huge vanilla bourbon nose, a bit of alcohol as well but not overwhelming nor disturbing. Full body with nice roasted notes, a bit of spice but loads of mellow caramel and burnt notes and a alcoholic finish. Aftertaste is coffee and dark chocolate. One of the nicer versions.

Benzai (9999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized dark brown head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, some hops, and superbly balanced, a hint of vanilla. Taste appears to be similar: malts, roasted malts, quite some bourbon, quite some alcohol, some bitter. Intense.
