maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle at ratebeer tasting at CBC. Pours dark brown with no head. Nose is very chocolatey and sultana forward. Molasses and heavy raisins as it warns. Kind of like a muscat. Heavy molasses in taste with a fair bit of booze. Heat is there. Dry finish. Sultana on the finish. Sharp bitterness on the end. Not my kind of stout

Dobry ale nie rewelacyjny w porownaniu do innych imperialnych stoutow. Charakterystyczna goryczka i palony slod. Troche delikatny podobny do guinnessa tyle ze z o wiele wieksza piana. trwala i czapowata po mojemu. Intensywnie geste i czarne tak jak guinnessy, ale delikatne jak na ten wymagajacy gatunek

ClubGonzo (3936) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. An Irish imperial stout? Well I never! :-) Pours a deep brown body with a ruby-hued taint and a tiny off-white head. Aroma is vinous raisiny dried fruit tones, hints of alcohol, chocolate, honey and caramel. Nice. Taste is burnt sugars, vanilla, chocolate, caramel and hints of raisins, toffee and sweet licorice. Smooth oily mouthfeel. A bit atypical, but quite nice.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 18, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Při nalévání je vidět tmavě rudá barva. Ve sklenici je následně pivo temně černé téměř neprůsvitné se znatelnou tmavě rudou barvou v užších částech sklenice. Pěna je nižší, tmavší krémové barvy, jemná a držící. Vůně piva je velmi příjemná, středně silná káva s náznaky ovoce a karamelu. Po prvním ochutnání je pěna piva velmi příjemná na rtech, doprovázená kávovou hořkostí se sladkým okrajem připomínající nezamíchaný lehce oslazený šálek kávy, doplněný slabší chutí karamelu. Jedná se o velmi výtečný, vybalancovaný stout který se opravdu dobře pije.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours a black choc colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is not overpowering, with molasses, caramel, coffee, chocolate. Medium chocolatey sweetness, light roasted malt bitterness, and just a little boozy kick at the end. Very smooth, in both flavour and carbonation, with a full-bodied feel to it. Very good.

Bottle at home, BOE, 02/02/13. Light black in colouration with a thin tan head that soon dissipates to a bubbly film and edgeing., Nose carries roast malts, chocolate, dark toffee fudge, sugars, molasses. Taste comprises roast malt, milk chocolate, mineral tones, toffee, metallic hints, brown sugar. Medium bodied with bite, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Decent stout.

Beersiveknown (2777) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle@home from drinkstore 25/1/13 Dark brown-black with fluffy beige head. Rich coffee and chocolate on the nose. Quite a lot of residual sweetness with some fruity hop notes and a roast barley bitter finish.

StoutHead (605) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Almost completely black but with a deep red tint. Tan head and lots of lacing. Medium carbonation. Smells roasty. Taste like roasted malt, coffee & liquorice. It’s very dry but tastes good and has a long lasting taste. The best porter I’ve had from Porterhouse.

teddybeer (2165) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 7, 2013
Bottled. Black colour with a tan head, good persistence and lacing. Aroma is roasty, coffee and smoky. Flavor is similar as aroma with a slight bitterness in the final. Flat carbonation with a medium to high body.
