Tasted at EBF08. It’s dark, it’s heavy. Oily and bitter. Served a bit too cool, and with too little head.

cgarvieuk (19711) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Bottle RBESG 07 ... Deep Deep black ... rich malts rich and fruity little bit meaty ...thick syrupy rich malts lots of depth and character rich fruityness and lots of roast malts. 4.0

TK 2 Bottle at home ... Deep deep black ... rich roast malts ... rich chocolate and coffee ... not as viscous as Dark Horizon and not such an alcholic spirit burn ... deep fruit malts in amongs the roast. This is a great sized bottle to settle down with. A beer this nice should be small and slowly savoured.

This beer sums up all that i didnt like about RBESG (though it was still a great day) Bottle stored at home allowed to settle well, served and savoured over half and hour on a much cleaner palate. At RBESG i could see the potential of the beer but dont think the beer was given the respect it was due or the time needed to full apreciate and savour this beer. 4-> 4.3

Tk3 TOMS Ultimate Glasgow tasting ... On reflection and compaired to th other on the day , while this is still a stunning beer it didnt hold up for me to some of the others. 4.3->4.2

Tk 4 : Quick swallow at RBESG No notes but 4.1

TK5 Draught at EBF Copenhagen 08 ... Deep black ... toffeee roat malt nose ... rich tofee ... sweet molasis ... rich sily and smooth ... little tobacco ... little honey 4.1

Interesting that its higest rating was in the Comfort of my own home. I do find that i tend to enjoy my beers more when im relaxed at home, not frantically looking at whats comming next at a tasting or beer festival

Tap at De Molen event .... 2007 version... Nice sweet chocolate nose ... soft smooth chocolate ... loads of toffee ... little hop ... very chocolaty

Tap at De Molen event .... 2008version... much less chocolate ... little meaty ... good depth ... toffee ... little chewie ... soft and smooth... bottle at home ... home tatsing 280111... very booozy bourbon ... rich malt nose ... sweet malty roast ... toastyed malts ... gain little bourbon ... nice ... but too much 4.0

bottle at home ... home tasting 250111 ... 2006 vintage ... deep raisins and plums ... rich dark toffee nose ... dark malts ... soft bourbon ... dark raisins ... nice but not stunning 4.0

2006 bottle. Flossmoor Station RB tasting 2010. Pours a super dark syrupy cola color with a nice frothy tan head. Aroma is a bit oxidized, rich chocolates, dark fruits, christmas spices, bread pudding which is really kind of neat. Flavor follows, has that bread pudding rich spiciness, dark and milk chocolates, very smooth, great depth. I have no doubt that I would rate this higher on my next sample.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Enjoyed a 2006 vintage at the Flossmoor Station RB tasting, 1/16/2010: It poured a thick, dark brown opaque body with a smallish tan head. The aroma was chocolatey, smokey, dark fruity, coffee-y... nice. The flavor kicked it up a notch, intensified the flavors, and added vanilla and wood and a light spiciness to the blend. A treat, to be sure.

2006 bottle shared by the Tampa crew. Such generous guys. Black pour with thin brown head. I wonder if this aged a bit more than it should, because some oxidation showed, but not really in a bad way. Chocolate, roast, coffee, toffee, caramel, and grain. Some molasses. Full palace. Very nice.

MeadMe (1570) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Acquired in a trade with bosse 2006 Version A: Pours a nice dark rich black with a small brown head. Some okay retention with just a few spots of lace. S: Lots of roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, and mild oak. T: Roasty and chocolaty up front. Coffee in the middle with hints of oxidation and coconut showing through. There is a nice malty sweetness that is nice without being too sweet. The oak is rather mild and can be picked up in the finish. M: Medium in body, smooth and easy drinking. D: Pretty good. Really look forward to the 2008 bottle I have on the way.

tomer (2668) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2010
At a tasting, many many thanks DSG with something to end this difficult tasting on a high. treacly pour, small espresso like head, opaque very dark brown, aroma of rich chocolate cake, cocoa and soy sauce, flavour of dark chocolate, chocolate cake and a nutty presence, the flavours and aromas are not to siverse but intense and rich, mellow sweet and sour afetaste. Very very good

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 2007 bottle thanks to importer. poured black with a tan/copper head that stained the glass. aroma was rich and decandent with fudge, honey, and a dark fruit. flavor was much of the same profile as the nose. body was slick and oily. glad that i finally knocked the whale of the list.

sloth (2755) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle from Marsiblursi, 07 vintage. Small brown head with good retention and some spotty lace. blackbrown murky appearence. Nose of choco, roast,faint smoke and dark fruits, lightly vinous. Full bodied, oily with a velvety mouthfeel. Dark/bittersweet chocolate flavors with notes of plums, raisins, gentle lumber, coffeeish hints and roast. Light bits of smoke and caramel as it warms. Big and rich finish. A solid Impy Stout but probably a bit overated. Trading with Andreas for this beer was probably the highlight of the expeirence. My first overseas trade and i was taken care of by one of the best. Thanks again Andreas. Hope we can do another trade sometime.
