(2/2012) bottle. I remember this being quite oaky. Otherwise yet another nice RIS from nögne. I’m actually surprised at the low score. But, it was during a RIS tasting so I guess I could afford to be picky.

berlinoise2go (613) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
Bottle (50cl). Brewed 2007, consumed 2013. Pitch black colour. Finger-thick dark beige head that reduces to a stable ring. Boozy swirl, no lacing. Impressive, complex semi-sweet aroma of roasted malt, smoked wood, soy sauce, balsamico, coffee, licorice. Full body, flat carbonation. Rich and fairly dry, woody taste with a balsamico-like acidity that grows towards the finish. This is well balanced by a modest sweetness and some saltiness, but it veers just a bit too much in the acidic direction for full marks. Long malty salty-acidic aftertaste.

Lilja (1632) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Lagrad åtminstone tre år. Smak och doft av choklad, humle, kaffe. Krämig och lång och trevlig eftersmak. Fin beska.

Duntoyou (101) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2013
Fått denne på måltid i agder noen ganger. Monsterøl. Ble servert litt for kald, nydelig når tempen er 13-14 grader. Flott fylde, herlig og kompleks snak av blant annet sjokolade og kaffe

Pours black and viscous. Aroma is sweet caramel, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is sweet with vanilla. Full bodied and slick. Really nice!

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Brygd 2007. Flaska från SB, Norge-provning. Ganska svag men rå doft. Metall, olja, lakrits och alkohol. Mycket alkohol, ganska torr, stram och rå, hårdrostad, lakrits, riktigt torr mörk choklad, soja, oljig, måttlig beska. Ett rått maffigt öl att dricka i små doser.

martinen (36) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2013
Tydlig doft av lakrits och kaffe. Påminner mycket om rödvin, vilket verkligen inte är något negativt.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
0,5 l bottle. Poured pitch black, minimal reddish head that disappeared quickly. Strong aroma of ash, dark chocolate, molasse, cocoa, burnt wood, dead fallen leaves. Very strong body, well hidden alcohol.

GMCC2181 (1504) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle via SL... Dark in color... good head. Nose of coffee and roasted malts... Taste follows the nose. Roasted malts, coffee, bittering hops. Well balanced. Alcohol hidden well. Definelty well balanced, more so than DH 1. Medium body. Overall: Nice Impy stout!

Bottle shared by esp0r, september 28th 2012. Thanks man!!! Pitch black body, with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, soy sauce and light alcohol. Not much considering the strength. Thick oily body, sweet and intense bitter taste, licorice, roasted malt, chocolate. Warm bitter finish with malt sugars. As good as expected, though I’m happy the later editions come in 0,25l bottles and not this 0,5l killer bottle.
