Bottle. It pours a minimal sized beige head over a lighlty unclear dark brown body. Sweetish, almost cough syrup like aroma with a nice grassy, citrusy hoppyness. Oxidation and dark dried fruits. Full body, sweetish and softly carbonated. Some alcohol warmth. Lots of sweetish, roasted oxidized malts, with some chocolate and a pleasant hoppyness. Not much bitterness though, or it disappeares in the sweetness. Some warmth in the finish. Well, it feels more or less like a dark English style barley wine than like an imperial stout. 130516

Black with frothy, light beige head. Roasted, fruity aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has raw licorice and good, but rough hoppy bitterness. Alcoholic, bitter finish.

In short: watery Imp. Stout.
Pours quite dark with almost no head, no lacing. Roasty, coffee, some acid malt aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is roasty, alcohol noticed, some acid notes. Enjoyable. Some more malt bill would make this beer a real nice one.

Lots of malt and hops as well. Rich roasted flavor. Complex beer but no foam.

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 50 cl bottle @ home, about a year old (bought during honeymoon in Denmark). Deep dark color (not quite black). No head. Aroma’s of chocolate, dried fruit, syrup. Flavor is rather sweet, dried fruit, chocolate-y. Alcohol warms. Medium to full bodied. Hardly any carbo. Finishes slightly dry, no new flavors. More going towards quad (or barley wine) than impy. Not too bad though.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2014
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Dark brown colour with a thin, tanned head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel, light nuts and dark, dried fruits. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter with chocolate and coffee. A lighter Imp. Stout as the label claims. Still a nice beer.

olio (6508) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2014
50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours surprisingly light, clear reddish color with a minimal head. Aroma of plums, some caramel malts, roasted notes and licorice. Flavor of raisins, plums, some caramel malts, sugary notes, syrup and wood. Very sweet and ripe fruity palate, sugary sweet finish. Clearly more like a barley wine than an imperial stout. Decent anyway.

jaghana (4142) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle 50cl from Henrik thanks. A brown beer without head ! Nose is on sweet caramel and prune / quetsches. Aroma is very sweet, vinous, lot of dray grapes, near to French muscat vine. Finish has chocolate notes and again sweet caramel and dry fruits notes with wood touch. Why is that referenced as Imperial stout ?

Flaske: Kulsort olieret øl uden nogen som helst karbonering, hvilket virkelig er ærgeligt. skam.Duften er nemlig fantastisk. Masser af humle, der giver en frugtet duft med toner af vanilie så den nærmest bliver fadagtig. Smagen er også lækker men grundet den manglende karbonering er øllen nærmest udrikkelig. Sikke en
