Brewed with American Amarillo.

Brassée en Angleterre à partir du 18ème siècle, cette variante plus forte du Stout traditionnel était destinée à la cour de l’impératrice Catherine II de Russie. La Postiche est une héritière moderne de ce style, où les saveurs torréfiées des malts s’équilibrent aux arômes citronnés des houblons américains (Amarillo).

Imperial stouts are so highly rated on this site. To me, this should be around 80 percentile, not around 50, even if there are so many that I don’t know... Very dry and intensely hopped (quite citrusy), with notes of espresso, bitter chocolate and pleasant black licorice. A lot of deepness and pretty complex, and very easy to drink. Very good.

kraddel (3001) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2014
Pours black ( trough Brown ) with a good , bit darker foam . Smell is burnt malts , bitter style . Taste is rather light-in mouthfeel , but full in taste . Very bitter , and LOADS of malts , resulting in an almost faded-peaty taste ( I had this in a homebrew once and I am pretty sure it is due to the overly use of malts , burnt malts mostly - yet i’m not sure ) Ending is bitter, with a sweet, chocolaty undertone .Not bad, but i prefer thicker , and more complex taste . Also could use a ted more sweetness in this one ...

Peter_L (714) - SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Flaska från Belgoklubben. Kolsvart vätska med ett massivt och högt skum. Dofter av röktorv och mörk choklad. Kraftig smak av mörkrostat kaffe med lite lakrits. Fyllig och eldig munkänsla. Lite udda med en belgare. God men ingen kioskvältare.

@Basunen: lite mjölkig doft. Tydlig smak av bränd kaffe och aska. Helt ok att sitta och smutta på. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong stout. Drunk from 33cl bottle bought at Malting Pot, Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swaroga (1316) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : czarne piwo o średniej wielkości beżowej pianie. NOS : przypalane aromaty podobne do przypalonego tosta, czarnej czekolady i słodkiej kawy. Również toffi, skórka od cytryny, alkohol i suszone ciemne owoce. USTA : średnio gazowane i oleiste. Ma kremową teksturę. Piwo jest słodkie o nutach przesłodzonej ale za to mocnej kawy ponieważ cierpkość i gorycz nadrabia i równoważy tą słodkość. Piwo również przypomina gorzką czekoladę z otrębami skórki cytrusów. posmak jest gorzki i podpalany. Chmiel nabiera coraz więcej przestrzeni po kilku łykach. ODCZUCIA : smaczny i udany stout. Trudno do czegoś się przyczepić. Na pewno świetnie parowałby się z jakimś ciastem albo lodami. Czemu nie jakieś ostre mięso. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 4/10
