1/25/2009 5:30:43 AM Bottle at Arendsnest. Brown body, tan head. Malty and coffee nose. Lots of flavours, including caramel, malts, some chocolate and bitterness. Warming mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from a Deen supermarket in Holland. Medium thick, cobweb-lacing, pale greyish white head retaining quite well over a very dark, initially clear but eventually hazy, burgundy coloured beer with ruby hue, blackish but still fully transparent under bright light - not what I’d expect from an impy. Aroma of fresh blackcurrant, lots of caramel candy and butterscotch, liquorish, milk chocolate, banana (gaining strength as it warms up), raisins, candied fig, kahlua, ruby port, some shoe polish-like phenols, dead garden weeds, roasted hazelnuts, toasted brown bread, pear syrup and a vague presence of cooked, brown-sugared red cabbage. Sweetish and sourish onset of fig, pear, raisin and blackberry, very ’Belgian’ in its esteriness and much more announcing a dubbel or a quad than an impy, medium carbo (a tad too sharp for the style), no umami worth mentioning, (too) supple and smooth, caramelly and lightly nutty maltiness with a toasted edge, bit oily, no true roasted bitterness but still bitterness from spicy, leafy hops in the end combined with the toasted malts, as well as a certain wodka-like alcohol astringency, though showing up late enough not to become much more than deeply warming. Very malty and more or less enjoyable beer for sure, but by no means an imperial stout: this is, in terms of looks, (Belgian yeast) aroma and flavour much closer to a (average) quadrupel. Not bad per se, but utterly failing in trying to be a RIS, that much is clear. A shame in that respect, considering the high quality of their barley wine, for example.

schavuitje (8) - apeldoorn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016 does not count
Imperial stout ; ik vind het meer een porter met zo’n rooksmaak of cacaonibbel smaaktonen. Een best aardige biertje

DwarfeD (2077) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Clear dark amber with a small slightly off-white head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with subtle bitter tones. Caramel, malts, brown sugar, some chocolate and spices. This tastes somewhere between a dubbel and a quad, not like an imperial stout. Not too good.

mariuspoenari (413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Pitch black pour, with a generous light tan head. The smell is pilsner-hoppy alongside dark chocolate and coffee. It has a fresh taste as well, with hoppy bitterness and cocoa, dark chocolate and coffee. There’s also a metallic bitterness which I personally find not pleasing.

TtV (327) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Ink black with a fluffy off white head. Spicy bitter aroma with a bit of rusty, metallic touch. The taste is a lot softer than your usual stout, but gets metallic and spicy near the end. Not too special.

mutz (802) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Heel donkerbruin, flink wat kraag die lang blijft. Ruikt naar mokka, koffie,smaak is idem maar vrij vlak, ik mis het pittige van een goede stout. Weinig nasmaak ook.

oliodnb (612) - ITALY - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle at Briljant, Haarlem. Pours black with a light beige uneven head. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, some vanilla. Taste is similar, maybe a bit too sweet. Creamy texture, light carbonation.
