pharkanklaus (34) - KBH N, DENMARK - APR 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a brown lasting foam. The nose is very pleasant with raisin sweetness, vanilla and coffee. Mouth-feel is thick and creamy at first but is quickly followed by an acidic note that tires out in an astringent aftertaste. Nice but not great.

Slipstream (1974) - USA - APR 17, 2011
Spongey head on a dark pour. Fairly light, yeasty, acidic aroma. Pretty mellow for an imperial stout - not too heavy and the hops aren’t aggressive. There is a flavor of sweet brown bread, followed by a hoppy tingle that sneaks up in the aftertaste. Good.
