Imperial stout refermenté par les Mousquetaires, d’un niveau de 9 % abv. Mon exemplaire pouvait dépasser allégrement juillet 2017, mais il a succombé à l’hiver 2015 … Couleur noir profond, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun moyen, à texture solide en haut, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de café italien, cassonade, candi brun, fût de chai, pointe de Madiran. 1ère bouche très souple, à la magnifique entame malt/houblon, avec une pointe anisée. Arrière-bouche dense, sur des malts torréfiés finement. 2ème au superbe ensemble malt/épices, avec une pointe fine mentholée. Arrière-bouche avec réglisse, acajou, pointe de mandarine confite. 3ème au grandiose ensemble malt/houblon avec une pointe de lierre. Arrière-bouche aux nuances superbes, très fine, complexe, riche. Longueur où on part sur le whisky, café italien, bonbon à l’anis, pointe de cassis. Jambes fines, serrées. Levure dense, originale, très belle ligne. Alcool à la remarquable performance de soutien aux saveurs. Finale dont on se relèverait la nuit pour en prendre une seule gorgée. CONCLUSION : très grande bière, qui n’est certes pas fidèle au standard impérial stout, mais on s’en tape les ballerines …. En tout cas, celles du Bolshoï !!!

75 cl fles. Mooi bruin schuim. Typische stout-smaak. Caramel en chocolade. Zeer lekker. Niets negatiefs te vermelden.

Soon good. They nailed it with this one. Nothing’s off, everything’s perfectly balanced.

Taste from the bottle. Milk chocolate, yeasty, toast aromas. Black colour, with delicate cleared flashes. Clear. Impressive, big, slowly disappearing creamy head. Medium sweet. A bit of bitterness (like from dark chocolate). Medium/full body. Average carbonation. Strongly suggested to taste.

Dobry imperialny stout. Wyglad do bezowo brazowawa piana wielka i stoji jak dab, trwale i wytrwale. Kolor ciemno brazowy z licznymi bordowymi refleksami, piwo nie jest intensywnie czarne, ale po dolaniu mazi z dna robi sie ciemno brazowe nieprzezroczyste prawie. Zapach kawowy, czekoladowy i tostowy. W smaku kawa gozkie espresso, czekolada deserowa i mus czekoladowy. Po przelknieciu goryczka daje we znaki mocno, ale po chwili ustepuje. Przeplata sie to z nieco slodowoscia i czekoladowym wykonczeniem. Ciekawe i troche inne imperialne Stout. Elegancka butelka lakierowana zacheca do konsumpcji

75 cl. bottle/shared@Kulminator: dark brown – slightly going to black with a deeply tanned head, taste is very bitter, very strongly roasted coffee & malts, nearly burned but not there yet, going into slight bitter ashes in the aftertaste, bitter deeply roasted aftertaste, underneath that there is some fresh coffee beans, cacao, hint of liquorice, very bitter chocolate with some chocolate truffles buried underneath, hint of berries, nice one, I am digging this

El primer contacto con esta gran cerveza es a través del aroma..... Y cabe decir que es excelente! Intenso y concentrado, pero a la vez complejo. Destacan las notas a chocolate y cafe con destellos ligeros a nuez. También se hace presente las maltas tostadas que impregnan la copa de esta maravilla. Finalmente se perciben ligeras notas a canela. En cuanto a la apariencia, totalmente la de una Imperial Stout. Color negro profundo, cuerpo redondo, corona de espuma abundante que se diluye lentamente, burbujas de tamaño medio que se adhieren firmemente a la copa. En boca, impecable. Estructura elegante y sumamente densa. Cremosa y suave a la vez con un ligero toque amargo. Al paladar, confirma todas aquellas sensaciones que se desprenden del resto de los sentidos. Principalmente malta tostada, cafe, ligero sabor a chocolate y vainilla, toques de canela y nuez. Ligero sabor amargo, el cual no empalaga y permite disfrutar ampliamente esta cerveza, la cual oculta completamente su potencia alcohólica. Su final intenso hace cerrar con broche de oro la degustación de ésta gran bebida!!

This stuff pours masterfully. The head is easily manipulated after a few minutes but always substantial. The aroma is pretty yeasty and fascinating in complexity. The palate is various and the taste is as good as the aroma. This became my favorite beer when I found that I liked the art that’s achieved through dark IPA. I am a stout fan and IPA fan in particular. I am not a fan of Belgians or Trappists. Or the ones I’ve tried...

At Peter Rabbit & Friends, Madrid. Pours dark brown with red shades. Dense thick tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, espresso, ruccola and strawberry. Mouth feels silky, dense, creamy. Low carb. Great final bitterness. No licorice flavor whatsoever, even though I specifically looked for it. Very nice stout.

Black. The head has a dark, cream colour. Aroma of burnt malts and a hint of sweet liquorice. Rich texture, silky. Flavour of roasted malts, caramel, cocoa.
