mateuszk (1584) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 12, 2016
Bottle. Lots of dried fruits, plums, raisins, caramel, light roastiness (somewhere underneath) and chocolate to top it. Full bodied, moderately carnbonated. Good mouthfeel, the beer is smooth, finish is lightly sweet. Good, I prefer more agressive amd roasty, but that was just fine.

Aroma is roasted smoked malts, chocolate, mocha,fig, caramel and toffee. Taste is deep and sweet with tastes matching the aroma. Some nut and a an almost chewy mouth feel. Finishes with slight tartiness. Well balanced overall and very tasty. Appearance is black with a thin brown head that retains quite well.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2016
22 oz bottle. 9.8%. Thanks to Timo A!
Black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, bitterness, salty licorice, alcohol, glue and chocolate in the aroma. The flavor is sweetness, chocolate, mild bitterness, roasted malt and some berries. Not a great Imperial Stout.

olio (8991) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2016
65 cl bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours dark brown color with a small off-white head. Caramel malts and cocoa on the nose, hops, mild resin, syrup and maybe some oat. Flavor is syrupy sweet, some chocolate, cocoa, distant tar, faint coffee too. Sweet, alcohol is well hidden. Could use some aggressive ..something. Quite mild.

Benzai (12763) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes, Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Dark brown color with an average sized beige to light brown head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is malts, brown malts, caramel. Tastes about the same with some sweetness. Quite boring and I would call this a brown ale rather than an Imperial Stout. Disappointing.
