Snifter pour dark dark brown with thin khaki head that doesn’t stay. Nose is mild, smooth malt, some sweet caramel... Not bad. Flavor has a little more going on, but not tons. Sweet malts and caramel, some chocolate notes.. Lighter body for an imperial. Could be worse.

750 ml bottle. Pours a foggy dark brown with a ruby red tint and a resilient, creamy beige head. Aroma is roast, coffee, licorice. Flavor is a typically belgian-dubbelish start, very sweet with brown sugar, candi sugar and almost maple syrup-like notes. Some obvious roast in there, too. Finish is clearly coffeeish, good roast feel in there. Nice level of bitterness. Some lingering licorice, sweet flavors. Medium to strong body, somewhat oily mouthfeel. A very good dark ale. Although I felt it lacked in body for an imperial stout, I felt it had very good drinkability, and easily combined the best attributes of good belgian strongs and imperial stouts.

Minderbinder (1693) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours black with high beige head. Aroma and taste are of roasted malt, caramel, sweet. Sligthly bitter in the finish. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Not my, but I would not get out of my way to drink it again. Still a pretty decent IS.

Pours raisin brown, thin persistent head and delicate lacing remains. Roasted malt dominates, with tones of raisin and a slight touch of chocolate. A tad more carbonated than most stouts, which with the lighter flavor makes this come off almost like a porter. Nice and drinkable, certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed, but not extraordinary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Nose of dark fruit - dates, prunes, raisins and hints of roasted malts and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a dark tan, mostly lasting tan head and spotty lacing. The taste has a rich bittness to it with a slight hint of sweetness. Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, with hints of coffee and port. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, an excellent imperial stout. This would be an interesting after dinner drink.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks David! Black with a frothy beige head, good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and liquorice. Taste is moderately sweet and about the same as aroma. Slight bitter finish. Medium body. Slight bitter finish. Really smooth RIS. Not too complex, but drinkable. Enjoyable.
