Aroma is really nice struise yeast plum and apricot fruit, dark malts, dried fruits, little toasted coconut. Flavour is composed of nutty dark malts, little coconut, little milky,dark dried fruits. Palate is medium full, velvety on the tongue, moderately carbonated. I like this.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Deep brown pour, dark brown head. Interesting beer. Not many white wine barreled imperial stouts out there. Its very roasty and has a lot of charred oak, licorice, bitter chocolate, espresso beans and the barrel notes add an odd flavor. Not sure it works that well together but the beer is still pretty tasty.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Imperial stout matured on Monbazillac barrels (sweet white wine from the Dordogne region). Thick, creamy, beige head, colour as good as black. Aroma of gooseberries, chocolate, wine, orange peel, coffee powder, dried plums, oak; dry sourish taste, very fruity and very complex, with a rich and deep, caramelly and chocolatey malt basis, the typical powdery mouthfeel I appreciate so much in this style and a full roasted bitterness in the finish with refreshing wine acidity and some woodiness. Wonderful, these people keep inventing impy variations as if it were nothing and almost each and every one of them turns out to be a masterpiece.
