McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Clean oily black, wisp of a tan bubbly head. Lovely fishy grilled tang to the sugary nose. Balsamic buzz throughout without being overly tangy. Lush peaty padding throughout without being overly smoky. Really well tapered on all counts. Cooling thick mouthfeel. Clean savory finish. Lovely and in a clear bottle.

esp0r (1908) - NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
Sample at Haand 2014
From a very cool bottle. Pours quite black with no head at all. Smells of red wine, roast, coffe, funk and oak. Moderate sweet, quite vinous, the red wine barrel has really made some interesting tones on this imperial stout, there is also a nice touch of oak. Then comes the dark roasy malts and coffee flavors added with som fruity funky flavors which is really awsome. Some moderate acids also apply. Finishes off with a moderate bitter finish. Masterly done, an exquisite beer

50cl bottle (#0148) shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours very dark, reddish with slmost no head. Aroma is dominated by red wine, wood and fruits. Complex, strange and quite interesting. Sweet, desserty and flavourful. Sour notes balance the sweetness. Very nice, but not quite my thing.
