tastybeer (1847) - Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft at source. Black pour/tan head. Poor retention/some lace. Aroma is tangerine/grapefruit, light chocolate/roast. Taste is sweet, chocolate, roast, quite bitter, orange candies, citrus. Palate is soft, oily, bitter finish. More of a black DIPA than imperial stout. Good.

Gurthnar (2926) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. Lots of grassy earthy English hops both in aroma and flavour. The classic roasty and malty flavours come more towards the finish. Not overly sweet, more hoppy. Not all about the classic dried fruits and sweetness, more about looking for balance where there usually is none. Interesting and excellent thought-provoking beer.

Drake’s 10k. Nice to have a Three Floyd’s beer, been a while. Poured black. Aroma of piney hops over coffee and chocolate. Flavor had loads of pepsin, otherwise a match. This worked for me, quite nicely.

Bottle @ tasting. Dark brown w/ mocha head and nice lacing. Perfumy hoppy aroma. I agree with stale. A little wonky flavor- sour & roasty.

Bottle thanks to Tectactoe. Aroma is super hoppy. Pine, chocolate cake, some dankness and grass. Tastes moderately bitter. Fairly dry. Dusty chocolate and pine. Chalky mouthfeel. Good aroma but not a big fan of the taste and mouthfeel. Still pretty solid.
