Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Impressive oak-aged imperial with sinister label and deeply beige, stable foam, colour jet black, no light manages to get through. Dense and powerful aroma of liquorice, coffee powder, bayleaf, leather, coriander seed, molasses, blackberries and bitter chocolate. Profound dark malts in the mouth, full, oily and viscous mouthfeel, deeply roasted bitter with spicy hoppiness in the utterly long, dry, complex, warming finish. What a great and unexpected surprise that the Nest is capable of creating this, an imperial stout nearly as good as almost any Anglo-Saxon example.

jdb288 (567) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Draft at Maxs Taphouse. Pours straight black with caramel lacing. Aroma is vegetal, soy sauce, booze. Taste is big boozy stout with some sweet/savory notes. Walks the line between the two and hits some odd notes (carrot? fish sauce?). The whiskey takes over and gives your the caramel/sweetness this desperately needs, but not enough.

bmerz (713) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Draught at Mugs on for 12 days. Pours reddish with lots of heads and good lace. Aroma is apple and malty sweet with dusty spices. Flavor is that fairly balanced with moderate whiskey notes in the middle that build with a esthy bitterness. This keg is described as having anise added which I get in the feel but no much in flavor. It is fairly watery and at this point a little dead. Interesting and good.
