NosirIwont (1894) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. 13.1%. Best before 18.03.14. Pours almost black with a small, quickly disappearing greyish-brown head. No lacing. Heavy aroma; dark fruits, a bit oxidized, somewhat dusty and a bit of wood deep down. Flavour is tart, almost sour, and bitter; rather (red) wine-like, but at the same time it has a cold coffee feel to it (without an actual coffee note). Dark fruit note as well. Finish is tart/sour with dark fruits, more wine/cold coffee (without coffee), tobacco, an alcohol burn and a lingering burnt note, the latter diminishing as it warms. Overall so-so. The aroma is rather good, but the flavour doesn’t really hold up; too tart/sour, and the cold coffee note feels misplaced. 04.01.14.

Desverger (1288) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard - pours a black dark reddish colour. With a small beige head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, caramel, red wine tinged woody nuances, slight coffee and choc, berry type fruits. Complex, slick, vinous with a good subtle boozeyness in the finish. Beautiful.

angel77 (536) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 11, 2013
Botella de 37.5 cl. En Cimeria 11-12-13. Increíble imperial stout. Color negro intenso con espuma con burbuja grande oscura no muy persistente. Aromas iniciales algo especiados y alcohólicos. Sabores iniciales dulces (la miel que aparece en la etiqueta se nota) seguidos de café y tostados con final no muy amargo. Cuerpo bastante fuerte y sobre todo a medida que calienta aportando cada vez más aspectos de licor. Gran diferencia con su hermana envejecida en vino blanco, cuando esta aportaba acidez y ligereza esta en vino tinto aporta más dulzor, cuerpo maltoso, menos Amargor y más sensación alcohólica. Increíble conjunción de sabores sin resaltar ninguno de ellos y aportando todos ellos lo máximo de sí. Al final cuando más caliente está se convierte en un inmenso licor pastoso y alcohólico. Gama alta Mikkeller sin duda, imprescindible repetir, muy imprescindible.

Lowenbrau (1736) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 11, 2013
375ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Shared with angel77. Pours black with nice tan head. Some head retention and lacing. Roasty, coffee, somw wood and tart aromas. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is coffee, roasty, wood, some wine acid flavours. All flavours are well integrated, from the very beggining. Ends more like liquor/wine, more dense than the white wine edition. Really enjoyable,

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. Pours an opaque black color with a medium frothy light brown head that diminishes gradually. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of dark chocolate, wood and dark fruit. Full-bodied with a subtle vinous character and flavors of semisweet chocolate, roasted malt and a bit of black licorice. The finish is roasty with a chocolate and oak aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tiny tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, red wine, and roasted malt. Flavour is much like the aroma – with some warming alcohol and a bitter finish.

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt, tannic wood and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark roasted sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.
