Verre, d’un fût lors du 2e anniversaire de Hill Farmstead. Arômes de malt torréfié, portant sur le chocolat noir et les céréales grillées. Robe noire et opaque, légère dentelle moka et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le malt torréfié est vraiment très bien développé. montrant un beau caractère de céréales grillées et de chocolat noir. Les agrumes sont peu apparentes, contribuant peut-être une légère acidité. Finale très maltée sans être trop sucrée et l’alcool demeure très bien dissimulé. Une très belle Imperial Stout.

jackl (5382) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep hazy brown color with a tiny coffee brown head. The nose is coffee, sweet peaches and mocha chocolate. Some hints of mandarin orange. The taste is strong roasty coffee and lactose. Like vietnamese coffee and condensed milk. Burning sugar and light wood. The body’s full and very sweet. Soft carbonation. Very easy to drink. Nice.

ClubGonzo (4522) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pitch black body, medium beige head. Nose is subtle coffee tones, chocolate and hints of dark fruits. Taste is sweet dried fruits, dark chocolate, hints of ashes, black currants and alcohol. Seemed a bit raw to me at the time. Smooth and velvety palate with just the right amount of carbonation. A fine ale, though perhaps not as much in my book as here on Ratebeer.

thewolf (11362) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Completely black pour with a lovely, small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is roasted, liqourice, coffee, light chocolate and good, fresh orange-peel. Medium carbonation, nice light and dry mouthfeel. Quite creamy as well. Flavour is elegantly balanced, freshness from the oranges coupled nicely with charry roasted malts and coffee. Lingering malty bitter finish. Super drinkable.

Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Smooth and rather pleasant, but the whole spice rack is thrown in. Coffee, mint, undefinable finish.
