2014-12-19. Very dark brown body with a tiny brown head fades. 3+ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, sweet dark malt, hints at molasses. 7+ Flavour is similar, with a sweet malty core, dryish roast in the finish grows into the aftertaste. Light molasses touches. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, very soft carbonation. Pretty solid. Enjoyable. Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow.

Fashawn (221) - Montesarchio, ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
Bella imperial stout. Nero impenetrabile, schiuma beigenon troppo abbondante ma persistente,anche se saponosa. Aroma di caffč torrefatto note tostate EF affumicate,un po’ di cacao e sul finale prugne e castagne. Imbocco liquoroso tanto caffč che si alterna con il cacao. Il caffč č predominante ma anche l’orzo tostato emerge. Finale amaro e lungo,emergono a tratti vaniglia e castagne. Bella birra,corpo poderoso e tessitura oleosa.

gegwilson (1535) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from the Darlington Cheese & Wine Shop. Pours black with a tan head. Deliciously chocolatey beer with light spice and warming alcohol. Very tasty and far too drinkable for the strength. Rich and full bodied. Top notch beer.

Imperial Brown stout is vat precies samen hoe dit bier smaakt. Zwaar in de neus heerlijke zachte hop, karamel, chocolade. De smaak is krachtig, vol room, dik, met een zijde zachte koolzuur toets. De afdronk begint vol en wordt steeds sterker. naar mijn mening is hij aan het einde iets te scherp. al met al een geweldige Stout!

Od czego by tu zacząć może od piany której w ogóle niema , zazwyczaj w mocnych piwach jest jej mniej, ale pijałem RISy/Imperialne Stouty mocniejsze z mega pianą. Barwa jest, ciemna, w gorszym świetle można by powiedzieć że jest czarne, a w lepszym że brunatne. Totalnie nieprzejrzyste bez jakichkolwiek refleksów. Aromat wisienkowy, czerwone owoce, jakby lukrecja, słody palone, gdzieś tam na koniuszku odrobina wanilii pochodzącej zapewne z dębowej beczki. Odrobina alkoholu bardzo przyjemnego, bynajmniej nie uciążliwego. Pierwsze co nasuwa się po pierwszym łyku to to że jest pełne jak cholera, oleiste, aksamitne, wysycenie niskie i odrobina goryczki. W smaku jest czekolada gorzka, ciemne owoce, odrobina alkoholu owocowego który czuć odrobinę w przełyku.
