PapaVillum (535) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
750 ml, flaske, 9,0 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 31. oktober 2014. Kastanjebrun belgisk Imperial Stout med tyk tætskummende moccafarvet skumkrone på ungefär 5 cm. Ufiltreret. Kronen svinder og danner skumlandskaber. Senere mindsket ned til gardiner og overflade. Let syrlig, men også "mørk" aroma af ristet malt og humle. Noter af mørk chokolade. Alkohol- og bondegårds-noter. Krydret. Dejlig smag med fornemmelser af chokolade og lakrids. Bitter med lidt underliggende sødme, som fin følgesvend. Lækker bitterhed. Vel karboneret på et medium niveau og med en konsistens, der er oily til cremet. Fin perlende mundfølelse og en eftersmag, der er ganske lang. Overall: let drikkelig Imperial Stout med et belgisk twist.

timmwillum (80) - BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2014
Flot mørk, næsten sort porter-type med let gyldent mellemtykt blivende skum. Sødlig næse med let brændte toner og lakrids. Starter sødligt med rigeligt kulsyre slutter mere bitter med en anelse brændt humle og anis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2630) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Derivative of Troubadour Obscura since 2011, in 75 cl bottles and destined for export - unfortunately. Creamy, stable, light beige head, very dark burgundy colour, near black, allowing light to shine through only at the edges, almost clear. Rich aroma of coffee powder, bitter chocolate, liquorice, candied dates, tonic water, blackcurrant, leather. Rounded, smooth, bit oily mouthfeel, dark and candied fruits, medium carbo, dark and deep chocolatey malts with mouth-filling, coffee-like roasted bitterness and sharpish peppery and citrussy hop bitterness in the end, long and dry. Not the best impy I ever had - still rather ’Belgian’ - but a truly great beer in all respects.

Borresteijn (5009) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
75cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele, bought 2 years ago. Black colour, beige-brown head. Aroma of oxidization, smells old, liquorice, roasted malts, yeast. Flavour is sweet, liquorice, yeast, also tastes old, roasted malt and some coffee in the light-bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Already too old, obviously not a beer to keep.

thanatosti (1005) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Bitter taste but with a light sweetness to it. Very smooth mouthfeel, maybe even too smooth for an imperial stout but I think this has to do with the sweetness. Still a good beer though.
