Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage Old Streetil, hind £ 4,00. Ülimust. Suuremulliline väga vähene vaht kaob kiirelt. Aroom paneb oigama: ülitugevalt likööri- ja trühvlikommine, st tumeda šokolaadine, kakaopurune ja alkoholine, kergelt suitsune (suitsutarene, pigine, kõrbene?). Nagu oleks likööris leotatud veidi rosinaid, kuivatatud ploome ja tumedaid kirsse. Joogil on lõhn muuseas isegi külmikust võetuna äärmiselt tugev. Kehalt kerge, mitte päris sametine, kuigi sellele lähedal - ei ole otseselt mulline, kuid mingi porterlik kihisemine on olemas. Maitselt ehk isegi häirivalt hapukas-alkoholine ja mõrkjas, nagu oleks kange kohv segatud vürtsilikööriga. Ergas, alkoholisooja õhkav ja kiirgav - sametiselt siledast ja pehmest Stoutist on asi kaugel, see tõesti mõjub pigem ergutava laksuna: kirjutaksin ma praegu romaani salapärasest mõrvarist 19. saj Whitechapelis, saaksin siit siukse energiabuusti, et hommikuks oleks asi valmis. Lõpp on kleepjas-õline, suhu jääb tugev alkoholitunne. Äge kraam.

mR_fr0g (4169) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle at home picked up at the brewery, split with sarah. Aroma is nutty caramel malts, woody oak and mellow booze, some dark berry fruits. Hint of rounded vanilla on the nose as well. Viscous dark brown coloured pour, oily with a thin fleeting dark tan head. Flavour is rich dark chocolate, woody oak, dark berry, hint of tart, mellow woody roasted malts. Palate is smooth an viscoud, low to moderate carbonation. oily an coats the tongue. Long lingering dark chocolate, roast and light tart berry. Really good, nice and rustic.

ciocanelu (101) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 28, 2014
Black color with dark mocha head. Dark roasty aroma with some light fruity character. Taste follows with bitter roasted malts and a bit caramel. Definitely not the sweet kind of imperial stout. This one is all about the roastiness. Medium to heavy mouthfeel, smooth and easy drinking. Really nice beer.

330ml bottle. Aroma chocolate, flavour is chocolate toasted grain and nutty. Black colour, minimal coffee coloured head which laces quite well. Viscous mouth feel, low carbonation. Excellent.

kanerjus (52) - orimattila, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2014
tuoksu on yksi parhaista ever. kymppi hyvin lähellä. suklaata, pähkinää, vähän paahdetta. pähkinän ja suklaan liitto on hieno. suutuntuma kääntyy vetiseksi. liian makea.

simont1 (320) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Nose of fruit cake, toffee and chocolate. Taste is very mellowed out with some chocolate raisin quality, not very roasty compared to american counterparts, but some roast is there. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, lots of licorice. Mouthfeel is a bit thinned out.

Flaska köpt i Stoke Newington, London. Detta var en besvikelse tyvärr, smaken är inte alls behaglig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim, Ra’anana. Deep brown with small brownish head. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee, a bit alcoholic, faint toffee notes. Lots of coffee in the flavor, roasted malt, milk chocolate, licorice, medium sweetness, sticky dry sweet-bitter finish. Light carbonation, creamy, full-bodied. Very good.
