adster (497) - HUNGARY - APR 18, 2015
Pokolian fekete, áthatolhatatlanul sűrű testén egy szemernyi hab sem fejlődik, az igazán különleges sörök egyik fokmérője ez esetben is felütötte a fejét. Motorolajként folyik az öblös pohárba, megforgatva tapadós lenyomatot hagy annak falán. Elég, ha csak a közelében tartózkodunk, illatszerkezetéről akkor is tudomást szerzünk, s legyünk bár a leginkább laikusak is a témát illetően, a vaníliás-faháncsos, földes-kókuszos karaktert akkor is felfedezzük majd az illatjegyei között. Whiskey szerkezete sejlik tehát fel, mint ahogy az várható is volt az előzetes információk alapján; átütő erejű prémium gabonapárlat súlyos lábnyomait követve juthatunk el imperial stoutos élményeink egyik mérföldkövéhez. Olvasztott, sós karamella; darált kávé; földes-vaníliás-kókuszos malátakoktél hangulatai versenyeznek intenzitásban, parázsló alkohol finom körvonala hálózza be az egyébként is kirobbanó testet. Nem az a fajta ital, amely valamely cselekvés kísérőjeként szolgál, megérdemli a kitüntetett figyelmet. Éppen ezért, s mert a szerkezete nem az a könnyen megfejthető fajta, érdemes bőkezűnek lenni a kortyok számát illetően, hogy minél tovább tartson a varázslat.

Saeglopur (685) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 14, 2015
330 ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop.
Black body with a tiny coffee head, that disappears immediately.
Typical, lovely bourbon aroma, with booze, barrel notes, coconut, vanilla, dark chocolate, some coffee, some dark fruits.
Amazing taste of melting dark chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, oak, liquorice, dark fruits, some booze.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes warm, alcoholic, astringent, roasty, but still smooth, with coffee, wood, dark chocolate, some liquorice.

Delicious! Especially the taste is wonderful and really multifarious, because it isn’t all about the bourbon and also not as heavy as the ABV suggests. In fact drinks pretty smooth, the balance is really outstanding. One of the best Imperial Stouts by Mikkeller!

Piwo praktycznie czarne, piana uboga i szybko opada. Aromat jest fenomenalny, czekolada, dębowa beczka, wanilia. W smaku jest mocno czekoladowe, z wyraznymi akcentami dębowej beczki, bourbon. Jest bardzo treściwe, gęste niczym syrop. Wspaniały RIS. Na pewno warto kupić i spróbować.

ElManana (815) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle bought at Bierhalle Deconinck I think. Pours black with a brown head that fades quickly. Aroma has vanilla, some soy, bitter chocolate, alcohol noticeable. Taste has lots of bitter chocolate, some vanilla and hops but also a very good amount of whisky bourbon. Alcohol noticeable but not disturbing. Nice.

MikaLukanainen (102) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Pours pitch black with (probably) some head - it faded so quickly that I missed the opportunity to look closely at it. The aroma is some burned notes and a lot of oak, fruits and gentle alcohol notes. Taste is slighty pungent, sweet and oily, wooden, coffee with cherry in the background finished with an extremely long dark chocolate aftertaste. Outstanding beer.

Swaroga (1632) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2015
Thick and still sweet after BA which is quite unusual unless it was aged only couple of months. The beer reminds a lot the non BA version with slight differences : there is less head and carbonation. It also seams more thick which is veeery unusual. The aroma and flavor gets an extra fruity like notes though. It’s still over sweet with notes of black chocolate and coffee. Tabaco dry and roasted flavors are less strong but still there. The alcohol is more intense thanks to burning a bit bourbon notes. The aftertaste is also different this way. Great tasting stout and very rich.
