UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Botella de 50 cl en Cimeria. 22-12-13 imperial stout?? Como puede ser tan acida...?? Inmenso sabor ácido al principio que enmascara todo lo demás, aunque poco a poco según va calentando van aflorando nuevos sabores como la madera de roble empapada seguido de ligeros tostados, café y quemados. Cuerpo ligero - medio... Como puede ser esto con 11 vol,?? Tal vez sea porque el volumen alcohólico lo domina todo, junto con la acidez inicial. Va poco a poco calentando y la acidez inicial se va fundiendo poco a poco con tostados y quemados del barril de madera, aumentando ligeramente la densidad. Después de casi una hora ya está todo un poco más relajado aunque la sensación acida y alcohólica siguen ahí.Carbonatación media. Color increíblemente negro brillante con mucha espuma inicial muy oscura quedando rápidamente sólo pequeña corona. Aromas ácidos con madera y algo dulce.Increíble cerveza. Una inesperada explosión de sabores atipicos para una imperial stout. Genialmente alcohólica.Imprescindible repetir. 07-01-14. Cimeria. De nuevo nos enfrentamos a esta maravilla, esta vez más caliente al principio. Alucinante se notan ligeros aromas de cava cl principio cuando está fría. Caliente aparecen tostados y quemados ligeros. Acidez más moderada por la temperatura pero siempre presente. Se mantiene la puntuación.

Cunningham (4499) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2013
Appearance: Black color with a fine big beige head. Nice lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee and some acidic notes.
Palate: Medium + body. Tad sweet, and a fine bitterness. Average to soft carbonation.
Taste: Chocolate, roasted malt and some wild yeast.
Overall impression: The wild yeast should definitely not be there, but it gave it a nice unusual twist.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with OleR

Countbeer (4427) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Motoroil pour. Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a pitch black colored beer. Aromas of berries, grapes, apricot, flowers, sweet grains, vinous, yeast, some light hints of ash, light bay leaf/liquorice ish tone, chocolate and malt roast. Flavours of berries, light vinous, light tart, some grapes, some chocolate, smooth light roast tint, some yeast, dry tones, some light mocha and malt roast ashy tints and some wood roast. Mostly vinous sour fruity tones than any roast coffee chocolate tones... Aftertaste is tart with berries, grapes, some wood, some yeast and vinous tones. Medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Strange, it’s too fruity and tart and for 11%ABV extremely drinkable!

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle from Bobby’s in Santa Clara. Pours black with no head. Aroma is strong and strange. Maybe a little coffee and strange berry. Med + body. Flavor is sort of sour stout with odd fruits and some oakiness. Maybe touch of smoke with treacle. Finishing moderately, but nicely, sour.

bytemesis (3157) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque black with very little head; mainly a ring of brown that leaves some lacing. Aroma is sour, lemon, roasty, cocoa, perhaps some oakiness, but no real alcohol - were they wine barrels? Flavor is the same, roasty, chocolate, sour cherry, sour milk. Light sweet, medium sour, sourness persisting to far finish. Body fairly full and creamy. Just a bit of funk as well. What is so fucking funny is that this is clearly an infected beer; the more that I drink it, the more I am sure of that, and yet I am sitting here trying to rate it hedonistically as if it were a sour stout. The scores I am giving reflect that attempt. Its actually not that bad, but there are enough off notes mixed in that I can’t see how it is getting 4’s.

Lowenbrau (1942) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 16, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 500ml bottle. Sour, roasty aromas. Pours black with some tan head, vanishing, some lacing. Medium to full body, oily txt, soft carbonation. Taste is quite sour, raisins, caramel, roasty. A dark and robust ale with interesting sour notes. More mature as it tempers, more into wood and liquor, sourness vanishes.Nice one.

TyggaBrown (391) - NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Fantastic and really black and heavy beer from this norwegian craft brewery! The taste is filled with sweetness and coffee and all the flavours you think of when sipping to your beer in front of the fireplace. Well-balanced, a bit bitter, and hints of smoke.
