Melker (222) - Varberg, - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at The Roundhouse Taproom Hong Kong. Got a free sample of it and came back for more later. Really nice aroma with chocolate, berries, sherry, whiskey. Very sweet taste. Notes of cashew nuts in there also. Like it a lot.

23/XII/14 - 37.5cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ home - BB: 3/X/23 (2014-1531) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, big creamy irregular beige to brown head, little stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very oxidized, caramel, dried fruits, some orange peel, chocolate. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: little sweet first, lots of chocolate, very oxidized (well, that’s what you get for ageing in sherry barrels, I guess), orange peel, bit hoppy. Aftertaste: sourish touch, caramel, milk chocolate, sweet, bit hoppy, spicy finish.

Habanero (2818) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2015
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and weak sherry notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol and a peppery touch. Medium to full bodied, oily to creamy texture and flat to soft carb. A excellent Impy.

angel77 (1157) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 12, 2015
Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo en el momento el 12-01-2015. Con fecha de cons pref para 03-10-2023. color negro con espuma beige oscuro poco persistente. Aromas de maltas tostadas ligeramente quemadas, con toques frescos de maderas de vinos, cacaos, algo de café y ligeras frutas del bosque. Sabores de maltas tostadas, ligeramente quemadas con cacaos y algo de vainillas y buen aporte de maderas empapadas en vinos que le dan una toque fresco y alicorado,, intensificándose todo ello a medida que va calentando. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 12.2 vol con buen paso algo pastoso y bastante fino y suave. Una gran cerveza, para repetir sin duda.

pkomar (176) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Very nice and rich aroma. Dark chocolate, roastiness, coffee, dried fruits, some liquor. Pours jet black with nice tan coloured head, that leaves lacing and stays for a long while. Beer is very smoooth, alcohol is really warming the throat, but hard to smell. Medium bitterness, very enjoyable sweetness. Nice cherry-like flavour and liquoric taste. No taste of chillies,but there is some nice spiciness on the palate. Overall it’s a damn good beer - it may get better when it comes to aroma or taste, but it’s very nicely balanced and that’s what makes it stand out.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade
Pitch black color with small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, alcohol, light phenol, coffee, wine. It’s a bit too carbonated to fully appreciate the flavors; very strong roasted malt flavor, with some chocolate, quality coffee, light liquorice, tar; a bit salty too, while the sweetness is very moderate; very strong bitterness; the final has more notes of liquorice than Sherry.
Good beer, mainly because of the chocolate presence, although aiming too high.
