jesperhammer (3028) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2014
21-NOV-2014, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. 2012 vintage. Slightly hazy, dark, dark, brown but still transparant, low tan head. Aoma is chocolate. Mostly chocolate. Some alcohol and caramel as well. Taste the same. A bit oxidized. But only in a good way. Above average body - not up with the big ones but then easy’er drinking. Very nice drinking.

JorgeLee (1250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe, 2012 batch. Darkish black colour, reddish highlights, quite high carbonation, rapidly vanishing head. Poured quite thin looking. A bit lacklustre this one, some dark malty flavours, marmite and toast, chocolate. Moderate levels of bitterness. Perfectly drinkable but lacking flavour, this is supposed to be an imperial stout after all.

Fľaša, ďakujem Miro. Tmavšia hnedá farba, hustá pena. Vôňa krásne kávová, teplé kakao, trosku slivkový lekvár. V chuti na začiatku sladkosť ovocia, karamel, kakao a káva. Veľmi krásna a dlhá dochuť kávy, jemne karamelu a horkosti. Veľmi dobré pitie.

StoutHead (685) - DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep red color with a fine one-finger beige head. Aroma of malt, coffee and fruits. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, dark ripe fruits and a hint of licorice. Very sweet and dry finish with generous notes of coffee. Medium (if a bit watery) body and low carbonation. Taste is okay but nothing too special.
