Skakapa (52) - Malmö, - APR 19, 2012
Draught at Plevna in Tampere, Feb 2012. Dark brown, almost black with brown head. Smoke and chocolate are present in the aroma with a hint of caramel or cola. Goes down smoothly, almost too easy and would probably do well from racking. Cocoa and a light bitterness lingers.

nimbleprop (4881) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12oz bottle via Summer Secret Santa 2014. Pours a murky, opaque black with a ring of lacing, creamy, beige head. Nose has plenty of licorice and rubber, some black pepper, molasses, some roast mushroom, some pen ink, a little bit of liquid smoke. Flavor has some interesting caramelized onion and barbecue sauce notes, plenty of malt obviously, some molasses, a little smoke, some mild charcoal, some squid ink, some industrial notes, a little burnt plasitc. Full bodied, but not as sweet as I anticipated. A nice, big, roasty, filling stout.

Marduk (2742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 12, 2014
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy dark brown color. Small yellow head, disappears. Malty, dusty, hops, sweet notes in aroma. Roast, coffee, hops, pine, dry yeast in taste. Lovely spicy hops mixed with roast in taste. Mind blower. Fantastic beer! MORE!

Alengrin (1750) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
One of several splendid beers inspired by the Pikkulintu pub in Helsinki and probably the first real imperial stout in Finland. Dark beige head, blackish colour and profoundly malty, complex aroma of coffee beans, chocolate, candied dates and brandy; deep malty taste, sharpish, full of character, with sourish accent and powerful roasted bitterness along with warming, but not astringent alcohol in the finish. Powerful and impressive, a great example of the style.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Bottle [thanks to tiong] shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes, Ansjelaah and Martinus @ weekly tasting. Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized beige to slightly light brown head that leaves fair lacing and lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, even a touch of fruits, only slightly roasty. Taste malts, light to moderately roasty, superb bitterness, hops. Damn, this is a very nice beer!
