Borresteijn (4781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2008
On tap @ De Geuzen. It has been a while when this was on draught, but I really liked this one. Dark brown/black with a beige head. Nose of coffee, lots of brown sugar, dark fruits. Taste is sweet, brown sugar/caramel, liquorice, coffee, roasted malts finish. A lot going on in the flavours, but all nicely balanced. Very warming. Soft mouthfeel.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 On draught. An almost black beer, with a foamed beige head. It has a aroma of dark malts, coffee and chocolate. The taste is from dark fruits, like prum and raisins. Some drop (dutch black sweets) and pure chocolate after taste. An enjoyable complex beer for cold dark evenings.

SilkTork (5229) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Oct, 2007 In de Wilderman. Tap. Mildly sweet. Some cardboard. Lingering bitterness in the swallow. Soft chocolate malt. Faint buttery notes. Served cold on draught. Oily and fishy. Smoked herring. OK.

On tap @ Pothuiske and @ Take One in Maastricht. I sampled this twice without knowing what style this was supposed to be... and I think it’s better that way. Rather than an imperial stout, I considered it an abbey-style dubbel of excellence. Pours dark brown with frothy, tan, lasting head. Aroma was full of dark fruits, with tinges of milk chocolate. Lightly sweet beer with a healthy dose of roasty bitterness -- more hops than you’d find in a typical abbey brown, and they bring more complexity and balance to the table. Fairly lively mouthfeel, lightly dry. Alcohol hidden. Really enjoyed it. Glad I didn’t know it was supposed to be an impy stout, that probably would have messed with my head.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2007
On tap at Arendsnest. Dark brown. Rich foam. Nose of red berry fruits. Fruity with taste of oranges and sugar. Syrupy. Coffee roast. Pretty good. Wasn’t my favourite of the night.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2007
Dark almost opaque black colour. Faint aroma of coffee and raspberry. Fairly sweet taste, ending on a weak bitter note of toastiness. Ok brew.

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2007
Tap@ Arendsnest. Cheers to Rita! :-D. Aroma has some coffee some roast and is quite weak. Dark black coloured with a medium, beige head. Taste is sweet with a lot of licorice. Some coffee roast. Medium bodied. Indeed straightforward.

caesar (5202) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2007
Tap, Arendsnest. Dark black color, medium brown head. Aroma of heavy licorice, quite spicy, some coffee, but overwhelming licorice. Roasted malty taste. Quite straightforward stout-like beer, not an imperial stout. Ok.

ha1ag (733) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2007
Draught at Pothuiske in Mestreech. Creamy light beige lasting head which leaves proper lacing behind. very dark almost black color. Roasted malts flavor and scent. Expected more bitter finish. not bad, but it needs to be thicker to be an Imperial Stout
