harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to Theydon_Bois, cheers Colin. Black beer with lasting dense tan head. Some liquorice on the aroma. Quite smooth in the mouth. Touch of spicy rye I guess. chocolate and coffee kick in later in the swallow. It’s pretty drinkable to be honest. The liquorice spicy rye thing actually works quite well together. Touch of heat from the alcohol on the palate. More chocolate on the finish. Rather decent. Spicyness is rather good.

turbothy (1113) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2014
33cl bottle from P&M, two months past BB date. Pours dark brown with crema head. Lots of unappetizing light brown sediment. Sour coffee roast aroma. Burnt malt, syrup and coffee flavour, good with a sharp bitter aftertaste.

jonas (5738) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a golden shine, brown cramy ring. Aroma is light minerally, burned caramel, rye edges, strong licorice. Fullbodied, solid, quite dry mouthfeel. Licorice and dark chocolate, a hint vanilla, rye notes are integrated well, berrylike notes, herbal hops in the finish, spicy aftertaste. A lot going on here, initially a bit too dense for me but I am warming up to it.

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2014
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. This is a deep dark brownish looking one. It has a somewhat lacing dark beige top that’s sticking to the sides of the glass. On the nose it’s soft woody, dark with some spices? A little bit of chocolate and cocoa also. Mild. Really wood chocolate in the taste. Almost mineral water-ish. A soft coffee thing here as well. It this an imperial stout? I can’t sense any alcohol what so ever until a little warming spicy hint in the aftertaste. Yeah, I could drink this again. 02.05.2014

Procent (153) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2014
W aromacie cappuccino, trochę wanilii i owoce (leśne lub jabłka, trochę wiśni). Piana średnio obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, jasnobrązowa. W smaku kawa, gorzka czekolada, także nieco owoców. Piwo dość łagodne, kremowe, pełne w smaku i średnionasycone, goryczka niska. Brakuje mu jednak wyrazistości, szczególnie w aromacie. Nie zachwyca, ale jest dobre. Warka do 30.07.2014r.
