brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Reeks of alcohol, roasted malt, and licorice. Mostly alcohol. Mild brine note, some dark chocolate, and coffee. The taste is a bit harsh and unpleasant. A lot of booze, ash, and char. Some coffee, mild chocolate, and a heavy roasted malt character.

VDuquerroux (1280) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown opaque beer with a small white head ; small retention. Skunky nose (...), happily mouth is definitely better : roast, light coffee, prune, fig, light vinous (in the end, with the yeast sediment). Medium sweet, round, light dry bitter warming with fresh episodes. Medium body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation, sweet roasty vinous finish. Overall, good, despite of this unpleasant welcome (look and nose).

SimonBlok (311) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: dark with medium light beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, burnt sugar. Taste: fairly high sweetness with high bitterness. Notes of roasted malts, cacao, caramel, burnt sugar and bread. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and medium carbonation. The taste has some similarities with abbey doubles and it has quite a light body compared to other Imperial Stouts.

Bruin, helder, beige volle schuimkraag, veel koolzuur  zichtbaar in het glas. Aroma: Karamel, zoethout, donker fruit, licht chocolade, licht geroosterde mouten.....vooral het zoetige komt sterk naar voren. Smaak: Zoete geroosterde mout/ karamel, zoethout, koffie hint, chocolade, donker fruit en alcohol..... iets warmte, licht bitter . Body is medium, mondgevoel waterig, veel koolzuur ......erg dun voor een Stout.  Afdronk is kort en zoet.

Douberd (4925) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
(Scheldebrouwerij Oesterstout) At MOUT bierfestival NIjmegen, I remember having it before, surprised it wasn’t rated. 150ml glass. Black coloured body with a tall and thick beige head on top, good retention. Aroma of toasted malts, olive pit, heavy caramel. Taste also of caramel somehow, roasted malts, sugars. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Decent but nothing special.

MelvinKalksma (1016) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2016

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, dried fruits, liquorice and chocolate.

Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Medium sweet with malts, caramel, yeast, dried fruit, liquorice and chocolate.

This beer is rather intense, but lacks complexity and balance. It is really odd to be fair. This beer is watery, sweet and just plain weird.

Pretty decent stout. A rather soft and well balanced taste for a "fishy" beer, I enjoyed it.
