olio (9288) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours dark brown, almost black color with a small beige head. Aroma of bilberries, roasted malts, some coffee notes, chocolate and cocoa. Flavor of sweet sugar, caramel, bilberries, some coffee and roasted malts. A bit sweet and boozy at the end. Not the best of imperial stouts.

Bottled. Black colour small brown head. Aroma is liuorice and some mild smoke and quite big coffee to it. Flavour is a huge coffee thing with some roasted and mild toffeeish notes. Also some nutty things.

500ml bottle @ PBF 2013 from 50belair. Thanks!

Bottle 930/1650 - Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, berries, alcohol, hints of syrup and coffee. Taste is grainy, strong and sticky with notes of roastiness, dark ripe berries, sugar, syrup, molasses. Finish is sweet, oily and sticky with notes of honey, vanilla and molasses. Not your typical imperial stout. Sweet, heavy and complex. A bit too sweet and sticky for my taste, could be a bit more balanced.

lusikka (7693) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
500 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a black colour with a brown hue and a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, soy sauce, weak vegetable-like notes, spruce and bilberries. Flavour is rather rich with salty licorice, bilberries, cream, alcohol, bread and some biscuit and hay. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a salty, rich, creamy finish. Feels a bit like a doped Eastern Europe stout, sort of like Zywiec Porter on crack. Good.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF VIII
Aroma has bilberries and soy sayce. Flavour has sugary notes, malt, honey and salty licorice. This has something in common with east European stouts & porters.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled at PBF. Pitch black, miniscule dark brown head. Aroma of trewacle and vanilla. Sweet and massive bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Heather honey and oak, dripping with sweetness and powdered with vanillin sugar. Full of big flvours, but quite superficial. Warming finish with more vanilla.

Torrefacto (1429) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 7, 2013
Color Rubí oscuro casi negro con espuma beige escasa. Aromas de licor, madera, frutos rojos y maltas tostadas. En boca es densa con sabores ácidos ligeros y afrutados acompañados de toques añejos de madera bien integrados. Un birrote.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. An opaque black beer, with a small, frothy, mostly diminishing brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (black chocolate, cocoa, molasses, roasted grain, coffee), with notes of licorice, vanilla, berries, plums, figs, alcohol, etc. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Full body, thick/sticky/creamy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with light to moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. A huge beer... Immense nose, complex, intense, deep, etc. And it also looks great. Sweet, but it doesn’t get cloying, I finished the entire bottle myself. A little more bitterness would furtherly help it to become perfect. However perfection is near... Great job.
