bottiglia bellissima,prima russian imperial stout inglese della mia vita..il fatto che gli inglesi siano più "delicati",soprattutto paragonati agli americani è evidente principalmente dalle birre! ti aspetti una birra con schiuma nocciola,spessissima,densa e invece ti ritrovi a bere una birra veramente strana! aroma nemmeno troppo intenso,tipico dello stile però..scura ma non tropoo,schiuma bianca e poco persistente..il gusto altrettanto,è una buonissima imperial stout ma è sottotono sotto tutti gli aspetti!

0,33l fles thuis. Zwart met een crème kraag. Geur is rozijnen en likeur. Smaak Is redelijk lijk gebrand met koffiebonen daarna caramel zoetje. Niet helmaal mijn ding.

Coffee and chocolate on the nose. Coffee, chocolate, caramel and soy sauce to taste. Good bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Cunningham (5726) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. Coffee, chocolate and mild fruity aroma. Medium + body and a pleasant carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Chocolate, some licorice, mild roasted and mild fruity flavor. A bit oily texture and very well hidden alcohol.
[Bottle (2012 Vintage – bottle #820) from Prešporská Pivotéka in Bratislava, Slovakia]

Huhzubendah (3059) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Dark brown cola body with a quarter inch of beige head. Roast, chocolate, hints of coffee. A blend of milk and bitter chocolates. Light to medium in body with only mild alcohol heat. An interesting stout. Lighter with less roasty character than is typical. Pretty good.

C’est léger, sans doute trop pour une I.R.S. Pas trop complexe en terme d’arôme. Un nez pas engageant ... Désolé mais ce n’est pas pour moi ... Trop alcoolisé pour si peu d’effets. Pour finir, des trucs dans la présentation m’agacent vraiment: La signature toute en volutes avec marqué "master brewer" en dessous / La mention 2012 vintage avec le numéro de bouteille à côté / le petit texte emphatique au dos .... Vraiment ça fait très "premium concon" !
