wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle about 1.5 years aged. Pitch black body with absolutely no carbonation or head. Aroma is like pinot noir but also has some balsamic vinegar and dark chocolate. The alcohol is still noticeable in the nose though I’d hoped it would have subdued by now. It starts off with a wallop of sweetness and alcohol. The sugary sweetness is almost unnatural and the alcohol is mostly noticeable due to the burn in the mouth. A coffee roast dominates at the finish and in the aftertaste. It’s very thin on the palate and the lack of carbonation doesn’t aid this at all. I can’t envision a scenario where this would be en enjoyable choice.

First impressions on the nose are acetate, nail polish remover and the taste confirms with hot alcohol. Sampled version is 2012 vintage so probably not going to get any better. Apart from that there is nothing going on in this beer - no complex flavours. Disappointing.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2016 Fantastic, big, beige head. In aroma full of vanilla, almonds, nuts, chocolate pralines, licorice, roasted sunflower seeds, flash of alcohol. Taste is so sweet. Full of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts ends with too long lasting alcoholic finish. Body is full. Very good imperial stout.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 ---Pisane na podstawie notatek--- Barwa brązowa, wysoka piana, świetny lacing. Aromat mega intensywny. Wyczuwalne: lekki alkohol, mleczna czekolada, kawa, lekka paloność, aromaty zbożowe-chlebowe, wanilia, cukier trzcinowy, whisky, lekkie wiśnie. Piwo jest oleiste. W smaku mega słodkie, kawowe, gładkie, słodowe, słabo wyczuwalna paloność, przykryta przez mega słodycz. Wychodzi również aromat sosu sojowego. Wyraźnie wyczuwalny alkohol i alkoholowa goryczka, które z czasem giną i zostają zastąpione kawą i kawową goryczką. Ogólnie likierowe. Świetne!

sjogro (1936) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
At Mrk’s. Bottle shared. Black with tan head. Verrery boozy dark roasted, bitter concentrated chocolate/coffee, dark raisans. Sweet with strong bitter. Medium body, sharpness from high abv. Powdery dryness. Quite carbonated. Sour edge to the finish. Overkill, obvious.

Maakun (2731) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Black with very big light brown head. Lots of roasted malts up front, dark chocolate, marzipan, cranberries, dried orange skins, massive bitter alcohol in the finish with some noted of green tea and unripe berries. Medium sweet, thick roasted bitterness and way too strong lasting nasty bitter finish. Almost full bodied. Ok, but the finish and lingering bitterness are pretty bad.

yourilevesque (1078) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Parfaitement noire au look huileux. Une mousse claire et dense se forme lentement en surface suite à une lente décantation. Une fois une le stade de l’évaluation visuelle passé, tout de cette bière me paraît surdimensionné et inutilement brutal. Tant les arômes que les saveurs et le mouthfeel n’ont rien de subtils. Une attaque d’alcool sèche sans aucune torréfaction et sans corps véritable. Une texture huileuse, des saveurs d’écorce d’orange et d’alcool qui se résorbent sur une intolérable et interminable amertume. Je suis incapable de terminer ce verre qui m’agresse.

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, rope, smoke, tar, sugar and fire place. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of coffee, chocolate, sugar, tar and smoke. A nice beer with a long and bitter finish!
