MrW (489) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2016
75cl bottle with friends. Aroma of plumes, honey, vinous, something acid. Taste is a bit the same, malty, sweet, plumes, paint. Sour, sweet finish.

HenrikSoegaard (12275) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2016
Draught. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Dark amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Barrel very present. Moderate bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Too much barrel and wine notes. Creamy palate.

Svesse (7512) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
(Draught at Kulminator, Antwerpen, 15 Oct 2015) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of chocolate, prunes and cherries. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, dried fruit, prunes, raisins, dark cherries and a gentle spicy bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite a fruity and vinous imperial stout, still in good balance. Nice one.

BeerBoom (190) - POLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. Obviously it is not an imperial stout. Colour is dark brown. The beige head is small and unstable. In aroma mostly wine notes from the barrels. Maybe a little bit of chocolate. In taste is sweet, watery without any bitterness.

sjogro (1590) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2015
Tasting at Maakun’s. Bottle shared by me. Bourbon vanille en rozijnen eendimensionaal maar wel erg lekkker. Backlog from 2015/10/16.

erickok (4634) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2015
Champagne like, light toasty, burnt sugar, candied fruit and Christmas pudding. Very bubbly mouth feel and therefore not quite as full as hoped, but not less fulfilling. (75cl bottle from Delhaize Heverlee)

ciocanelu (604) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 16, 2015
Dark brown color with milk coffee head. Aroma has some nice barrel notes, dark malts and some tart cherries. Taste is balanced, you get the wine and barrel notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall it’s a really well made and enjoyable beer.

SirLimpsalot (3129) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
@ Kulminator 15-10-31: Tydlig doft av jäst. Smaken är söt med toner av kola och torkat frukt.

On tap at Kulminator. Dark brown with a medium head. Light roasted, malt, some hints of dark fruit and caramel. The body was fairly light.

Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white lasting head. Clear ruby body. Sweet roasted malt caramel berries aroma and flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.
