hackobock (3495) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 (#500) Bottle at Akkurat, 2006 vintage. Pours black with a tan head. Very nice balanced roasted and sweet aroma with chocolate, molasses, licorice, coffee and a slight note of sherry.It’s a bit thin and "falls apart" in the mouth quickly (which makes it easy drinkable compared to heavier stouts, but I would prefer a bit more body). Taste is sweet dark and dried fruits and bitter chocolate, dry bitter chocolate finish.

Mortlach (1925) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 15, 2013
17/04/2012 - 2007 vintage bottle shared by Matt (thanks 50belair!) @ Brasserie 4:20. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, leggerissima schiuma color cappuccino. Aroma intenso di cioccolata fondente, caffé, liquirizia, leggera ossidazione. In bocca è meravigliosamente bilanciata, sebbene sbilanciata sul dolce, cioccolata fondente, caffé, ancora una leggera nota di liquirizia sul finale. I cinque anni di invecchiamento gli hanno fatto perdere un po’ di corpo e forse un po’ di carattere, ma rimane una grandissima imperial stout.

humlelala (1307) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
(2006 vintage; 10 cl bottleshare courtesy of Mark; HUGE thanks!!!) Pours thick black with a small, tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rye bread, molasses and roasted malt with a whiff of oxydation. Creamy texture, flat, full bodied, with a dark and smooth yet warming finish. Flavour is mostly sweet with the dark fruit, molasses and oxydation coming through and not much bitterness. Probably past its prime but still a great experience.
