At Zeebra II. Almost totally black pour, with a small brown head, low retention, light lacing on the glass. Aroma has wine notes, some roasted malts, faint chocolate. Nice taste, roasted malts but also vinous notes and berries, traces of chocolate. Bitter aftertaste. Medium thick body, good carbonation, very dry on the palate. A very good imperial stout.

Good imperial stout, balanced and rich and all. Yet, I feel that mixing two great beers is cheating. This ain’t brewing, this is mixing.

Botella de 33 cl en casa beni bar en septiembre de 2013. De zombier. Kab no.42 ris. Vintage 2011 aged in port barrels. Rusian imperial stout con cuerpo intenso y 11.5 vol que se notan perfectamente dándole un fuerte carácter, que junto con los sabores de maderas tostadas del barril y los toques ligeramente dulces y alicorados del vino oporto la convierten en muy muy interesante. Bastante buena, para repetir claro.

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur brune très noire et peu de mousse à peine un entrefilet sur la surface, une bière très complexe avec une attaque sur le café au lait intense et qui continue très longtemps avec une continuité sur le Porto, cette longueur apporte un côté noix très agréable, un must encore...

Bue en bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur noir profond. Fine mousse marron. Arômes café et Porto. Complexe et équilibrée. On sent bien alcool. Superbe !

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottled. Poured very deep brown with a tall, dense toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter cocoa, vanilla, and vinous notes.. showed some age, but not in a bad way.. warm on the back of the nose. The flavor found burnt black malts, molasses, honey, and vinous notes at the core, with peppery alcohol and oxidation around.. quite vinous and strong on the finish, but it somehow held its balance. Heavier-bodied with full carbonation on the palate.. nice tanginess from the barrel balanced against the big sweetness.. very good overall.

Black with big brown head. Nice chocolate, cherry and alchol aroma. Smooth and light sweet with nuts and caramel flavour.

Bottle shared. Pours almost black with a thick brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, booze, red fruits, wood and nuts. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter. Complex. Long chocolatey finish with some malty sweetness. Caramel aswell. Full bodied and thick oily texture. Yummy.

330ml bottle, 2011 vintage. Poured fairly lively, with a light brown head that collapsed slowly. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and port. Flavours of coffee and roasted malt, with alcohol lurking in the background. Beautifully balanced imperial stout, perfect for sipping on a cold winter’s night.
