Christian (11612) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2015
Tap takeover at Christian Firtal. Near black with a lasting off-white head. Roasted malty aroma with yeasty notes and some apple peel. Sweetish malty flavour with chocolate, caramel and fruit.

Calisky (1540) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 4, 2015
Couleur noire, très légère mousse beige. Nez de malt un peu grillé et chocolat un peu amer. Gout malté et chocolaté doux avec petite amertume en fin de bouche et note levurée. Bon corps, bien rond et léger malgré l’alcool. Fin légèrement grillée et chocolatée.

alomtnez (152) - SPAIN - MAR 29, 2015
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 On tap at Café Gaspar. Big brownish head with good retention and leaving a good lacing. Clean transparent dark brown colour. Aroma is biscuits, chocolate and toasted malts.Taste is also chocolate, biscuits, plum and coffee. Very high carbonation and medium body. Too soft and sweet to be an imperial stout, for me.

nihtila (1468) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
21.11.2014. Dark brown, big head. Aroma of roasted malts, plenty of milk chocolate, coffee. Taste is nicely balanced between sweetness and sour dryiness, also milk chocolate. Plenty of coffee in aftertaste. Easy to drink, rather light for IS.

TET (1992) - FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
A very dark brown beer with a big and beige head. Aroma has coffee, roastiness, herbs, some dark chocolate and milky sourness. Tate has liqurice and coffee, some fruits, dry roastiness in the end. Only medium bodied, medium carbonation. Stronger body would be needed. Not so good as I expected. Coffee and roasted.

tricksta_p (1766) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, lots of chocolate, yeast, some coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Pretty good, like most Troubadour beers.

jc1762 (151) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2015
Tap at Popeye’s showing dark caramel brown, with big wide red rust colored rims. Very little color and quite clear. No head. The nose shows a lot of belgian style sweetness along with sweetness from the malts. The palate is is very light bodied for a stout with very light carbonation. Hints of roasted malts but mostly clean malty sweetness all around. Bitterness on the finish comes mostly from the hops. In general, it tastes like a very light stout that was fermented with belgian yeasts in a style closer to a dubbel.

Hanoi (570) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Nose is malt, slight smoke, licorice, slight dark fruit. Taste is yeast, some soft fruits leading, smoke, toffee, a little chocolate, a little resin in the oddly bitter finish. Very thin for an imperial stout It has a funny taste profile for an imperial stout and is very forgettable.
