Fourth in our series this is Danís "Unplugged Imperial Stout". This beer is handcrafted for you with the same care that English brewers used when the brewed Imperial Stouts for the Russian Royal Family. This is a strong beer brewed with lots of black barley. Back home that makes this beer an excellent candidate for laying down in your beer cellars.

A pitch black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is slightly sour, but with nice malty, chocolate, and coffee notes. The flavor is malty with notes of chocolate and hints of coffee.

Dark cola with small brown head. Aroma is medium sweet, cherry, chocolate. Taste is coffee and chocolate, very well balanced with decent bitterness. Full body. Pairs splendidly with chocolate (peanut M&Ms).

Tmoney99 (12407) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured dark brown color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that may be past itís prime.

madsberg (11065) - SÝborg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2004
Bottled: Black/brown coloured. Light brown head. Some light coffee and roast notes in the aroma. Very vague in comparison to other american Imp. Stouts. Hops, malt, coffee, roastyness and chocolate notes in the flavour. Again not as distinct in the flavours as in other examples. Ends up in a light bitterness. Thanks goes to CaptainCougar for trading me this.

black, fine tan head, streaks of lace, rich fruity aroma with chocolate and roasted malts and black licorice sweetness, creamy body, rich milk chocolate flavor with tons of dark fruit character, roasted malts add complexity but stays in the background, just a bit of sweetness along with the chocolate, the dark ripe fruit is the star of the show

Finally the last of the unplugged series. Dark brown. This has held up fairly well. Lightly toasty and some sweetness.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Pours very black. Not much light can make its way through the glass, but when it does, a lovely, crystal clear crimson ale is revealed. Large, creamy, light-brown head. Poor retention; decent lacing. The aroma is of vanilla, chocolate and espresso. Flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, strong coffee and roasted macadamia nuts. Full-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bone-dry, chocolatey finish. Should improve with age. Damn fine beer as is! Thanks to BBB63 for this one!

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Ughmash (thanks!). Poured a dark black (with light brown at the edges) and a larged sized brown head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, dark fruits, and some toasted nuts. Tastes of roast, chocolate, dark fruits, and a light coffee finish. Alcohol content hidden. I found the body to be on the light side for a Imperial Stout although it was very easy to drink.

Thanks to JPDIPSO for this one. Pours deep brown/black, with a medium brown quickly fading head and not much lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts, toffee. Tastes malty, fruity, milk stouty, with a nice roatiness, rauchiness, and some great wood-barrel bourbon flavors at the finish. Medium mouthfeel and complexity. Not quite as big and bold as other RISs Iíve had, but this one holds its own. Daniel Carey may have been a shitty painter and singer, but he makes ass-kicking beers. Hereís to you, Dan. One of the few good things (along with the fellows Iíve traded with in Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota, Wisconsin cheddar, Indian casinos, and Brett Favre) to ever come out of the midwest (OK, Iím kidding, guys). Hereís to a lot more East Coast to Midwest beer trades in the future, if you midwesterners can forgive me for having fun at your expense. Cheers.
