Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Pours thick and tar-like, black and opaque with a dense, light brown head. Sweetish aroma with some vanilla and a tart edge. Good and solid body with lots of roasted malt, vanilla and coffee notes with a vague, burned edge. The burned notes hold all through the finish where the alcohol shows. Not a bad beer in any way, but there’s just so many better Imperial Stouts out there that for some reason never made the Top 50. 160607

Grovlam (4163) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle. Small creamy like dark brown head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Very dark color. Aroma was a lovely mix of chocolate, coffee, burned malt and light hoppy notes. Also liquorish, berries, oats, prune and date with somewhat port wine like feel as well. Very full bodied with an average carbonation and a thick creamy texture. Only a hint of alcohol. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness. Lingering English liquorish finish that combines the sweet and bitter notes well. Lovely and very smooth Imperial Stout.

22oz bottle poured in a tulip. I’ve wanted to try BORIS for some time now. It pours an extremely dark brown, nearly black with a small brown head that leaves soapy looking lace on the glass. The aroma is subtle with hints of Whoppers and ripe fruit. It has a great chewy body that fills your mouth and throat like a good prime rib. BORIS has a prune, chocolate, licorice taste that hides a pancake & maple syrup core. The finish is a little bitter like those phoo phoo cappuccinos that you buy in vending machines. The whole thing is very nicely balanced with just the right amount of hops.

Pours black with little brown head that exits quickly. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and some fruit. Coffee flavors to start with hints of fruit, chocolate, and fruit. Became smoother as it warmed but was already smoothe to start. Very good. Couldn’t even taste the alcohol which is bad/good!

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 When this beer first came out, it was hard to find this beer on the shelves. Shigadeyo searched every bottle shop to get some, and shared his bounty. Pours motor oil black with a beautiful chocolate milkshake brown head, with the sides sparkling like gold metallic paint flecks. What a nice looking beer. Aroma is roasty with notes of peanut butter, but becomes more port like as it warms. Thick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Initial flavor dark roasted malts, coffee, and dark fruits. The middle has some slight dryness with strong notes of red wine. Finish has a moderate bitterness and slight tang. Not too shabby.Thanks again Craig. I still enjoy Siberian Night a bit more.

The body was black with a medium orange colored head. The aroma was chocolate and coffee with some pancakes. The taste was milk chocolate with some coffee. There was also definite amaretto and a bitter finish. A nice imperial stout, but nothing special.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 Bottle sampled from Capone’s shared with the Mad_Indian. Pours black with a decent size tan head. Aroma of roast, dark fruit, chocolate malts, molasses, and smoke. The flavor is exceptionally smooth, dark fruit, smokey, roasted chocolate malts, syrupy molasses body, and decent amount of hops easily detectable all through-out. Excellent brew.

Bottle from Capones. Sampled with Stegosaurus. A+ + Beer. Beautiful black pour with nice dark head. The aroma grabs your very soul, coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is a hint of roast, chocolate and Oatmeal. Blended amazingly. My eyes rolled in the back of my head !!!!!

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle from sliffy. Charcoal black-brown body, deep ochre head. Complex aroma of molasses, punctuated by sweet, slightly fruity black malt, coffee, chocolate, and soy. The body hits the palate with strong charred roasted malt notes with a big tannic bitterness, balanced by sweet vinous red grape characteristics, brown sugar, coffee, and a hint of raisin. Warming alcohol. The silky, medium-textured body leaves an oily, slick feeling on the palate. Excellent complexity. A great Imperial Stout, on the dry side of the spectrum.

amazing stuff...shared with silphium...black body with medium ochre head..aroma is very baltic-porter like with massive hints of nuts and marshmallow, vanilla bean, coffee, oats and chocolate..flavor is huge in chocolate, is very dry and roasted, and is complemented by grassy/earth tone hops...enveloping palate complements this style perfectly...simply one of the best out there
