bottle shared by a friend, poured a deep black colour with a rich mocha coloured head. the nose and appearance reminds me a lot of yeti stout. nose of sweet dried bakers chocolate, sweet raisins, cacao, mocha, intense roasted malts, smooth mouthfeel, toffee, getting some slight red vinos notes aswell. enjoyable stout for a non barrel aged version

mariuspoenari (1420) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Sampled at a tasting. Dark brown pour with a tan head that gives way to a nice lacing. Smells of cocoa, milk, chocolate, roasted malts, cherries and almonds. Tastes like milk chocolate, cocoa, lactose, cherries and caramel fudge. Smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. An excellent imperial stout.

Black color with brown head. Aroma seems hoppy and malty with caramel and fudge. Taste starts sweet and with chocolate, caramel, coffee and some dark, dried fruits. Body is heavy but well carbonated. Really well made and really complex taste for a non barrel aged RIS.

Bomber brought back from New Orleans. Not sure on the vintage, either 2013 or 2014. Pitch black pour with a two finger, dense, dark brown head. Left some good lace. Gorgeous. Aroma was sticky dark malt, smoothed out coffee, dark fruit, melted candy bar, star anise. Flavors were full of deep roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, more dark fruit. So well balanced and smooth. Light yet lingering bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel was viscous, slick and oily, light carbonation. Huge surprise here. One of the best no frills imperial stouts I have had in a very long time. Wish I had brought back more.

Dégustée en compagnie de Cédrick. Cheers mon vieux! Un liquide parfaitement noir à la mousse off white qui ne dure pas. Des arômes poudreuses voire poussiéreuses, des fruits rouges confits, un alcool très présent qui me rappelle le Brandy. J’y note également du lait condensé, du soja, le tout sur une base plus laiteuse que torréfiée. Je me trouve bien loin d’une RIS, de sa mélasse et de ses malts fumés. En bouche le liquide est assez lourd et chargé de sucres lactiques. Les malts noircis ressortent avec caractère ici. Longue finale qui me rappelle le sirop d’érable.

Pours Luke a nearly flat coke. Aroma is pine, molasses, dark chocolate. I expected a fair amount of hop flavor from the nose, and there is some, but it is subtle. Just a bit of pine hop on top of molasses, dark chocolate. Ashy bitterness in the finish

Bottle share, thanks Matt. Dark brown color with a thin ring of creamy brown head. Roasty sweet aroma with burnt malts and bittersweet cocoa. Taste is sweeter than the aroma would suggest, cocoa, dark pitted fruit, and more toasted malts.
