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

sloth (2600) - 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.

BearsOnAcid (3) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 27, 2011 does not count
Black body, 1 inch of brown head. Aroma has a beautiful smoke and dark chocolate/coffee mixture. Heavily roasted malts and some ashiness. Barrel comes through very well. Charred oak and light caramel. The barrel is upfront in the flavor. It hides a lot of the depth and complexity that the base beer had. I don’t get as much of the sweetness and the ashy flavor is a little toned down. The alcohol cuts through that and leaves an acidic heavily roasted malt/coffee flavor on the palate. Lots of dark cocoa charred oak and light caramel. Creamy mouth feel with low-medium carbonation.

swoopjones (6701) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2011
bottle courtesy of Polly from Avenue Pub at Beer Bar Owner Gathering 2011, Good but falls victim of preconcieved notions. Notes of vanilla, dried fruits, light peat, licorice, pretty complex. Sample was about 2oz so i would love to try mote. Lighter mouthfeel than expected. Not sure of the year but good not amazing IMO

Yves (2488) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2011
Darkbrown coloured beer with almost no head and no carbonation visible. Roasted alcoholic aroma with some port hints. Full palate. Finish is soft bit malty roasted ending dry alcoholic. Very nice flavoured beer with strong aroma though soft balanced finish.

Scopey (8354) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle at THE stout tasting - part 1. Thanks Ken! It pours jet black with a small tan head. The nose is rich roasted malt, dark honey, oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, dark caramel, fudge and coffee. The taste is roasted malt, toffee, pretty big alcohol kick, honey, chocolate, earth, toasted coconut, touch of spice, vanilla, residual sweetness, salted caramel, tobacco and some pepper with a warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel (but not cloying). Really well balanced. Perhaps not as smooth as I had hoped, but a delicious beverage nonetheless.

The 500th rating of this beer! 2009 vintage @ THE Stouts Tasting. Cheers to Ken for supplying this top want! The pour’s deep brown with a small khaki head. The nose is deep, earthy sweet chocolate. Charred oak wood, a bit of vanilla. More earthy, roasted aromas. You definitely smell the barrel treatment in this beer. The taste is sweet vanilla and chocolate cake. Strong charred woodland. Thick, rich toffee and burnt sugar. Bitter, slightly hot finish. Full body, though not smooth or supple. Overall, a really nice, full-bodied imperial stout. Tasty indeed. The finish is a bit ragged, which brings it down a notch. On this showing, I prefer the older Konjaks version.
