Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
75cl Bottle from De Molen shop. Thought this would be appropriate for the Eurovision Songfestival. ABV is 11.2%. Black colour, thin brown head. Aroma of liquorice, some hops, ash, hard-roasted malts, molasses, chocolate. Flavour is thick, sweet, syrupy, molasses, roasted malts, earthy, liquorice, chocolate, hops, firm earthy bitter finish. Full-bodied, very thick, viscous. Good stuff. This, and Death on my headphones, helped me sit through the agony of having to watch the Eurovision.

Idiosynkrasie (3589) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2014
750ml bottle [11.2% abv, bottle #23]. Minimally ruby red glowing, black colour with late awakening, small, creamy, fairly lasting, superbly lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, notes of leather, oak, liquorice, a touch of smoke. Taste is bone dry dark malty, salty, notes of liquorice, oak, leather, soy sauce. Very soft, thick, oily palate, lasting dry, salty finish. Not what one would call flattering or simply accessible in taste, but a really sophisticated, immensely dry Impy Stout.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Thanks to MrHangover for this bottle! Bottle number 32, April 18, 2013 bottling. Pours opaque black with a tiny tan secondary head and some lacing. Aroma is super duper roasty, ashtray, not much else. Flavor is burned malts, tobacco, lightly sweet and very bitter. Fills out in flavor profile a bit as it warms. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting.

barn0216 (395) - California, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle from bytemesis. Deep, dark brown color, little foam. Chocolate, dark dried fruits, fairly rich. A bit of sweetness in the front but burned roast takes over and holds onto the finish. Meh.

MotherBrother (683) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Pour is pretty darn black, with a beautiful creamy dark tan head. Aroma is pretty roasted of coffee, roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate, slight green notes, some molasses/toffee stuff. D.I.S indeed!!! - this really is like a Classic Dutch demolen/emelisse kinda stout. The taste is pretty darn bitter, with some faint sweet notes. Semi-full bodied, with a rather flat carbonation. Thanks a bunch to Jeff for sending me this.
