martjoobolut (1132) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de). Pours black with small brown head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, some sourness, calvados. Flavor is roast, sweetness, dark chocolate, malt, calvados, some salty notes. Finish is dark chocolate and roast bitter. Overall: great brew, but not as enjoyable as bourbon and cognac BA-s.

Marduk (3215) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Sweet, malty, roast, dark chocolate in aroma. Intense roast, faint hops, oak acorns in taste. Roast is bit rough. Alcohol stays down. Nice one!

sic1314 (4033) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Poured deep dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of the calvados dominates, roast malt, dark fruit. Full body, flavour as the aroma, this isn’t as good as the base beer by any measure.

FatPhil (9819) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Very pleasant roasty aroma, less aroma than the brian we had earlier, some celery salt. Also has a salty palate, otherwise full and burnt, just a touch astringent. Getting a bit of the alcohol burn fromi it. Prefer the heavier sweeter one. This has too much salty bite.

suurjuust (1361) - ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2015
Dark brown, small beige head. Nose is roast, bread, alcohol, chocolate, mild calvados. Favor is bready-roasty, sweetness, ash notes, hoppy-calvadosy finish. Lots of lingering booze, soy sauce. Interesting stuff.

Nocturne (934) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
250ml bottle. Black with a very short brown head. Aroma brings some interesting touches from the barrel. Apple strudel, golden syrup and blackberry are in there. Taste is oily, thick and rich, which is just how I’d like an imperial stout to be, but it feels lacking compared to the aroma. It’s a bit too generic and even in this small bottle format is pretty tough to work through.
