50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet CC Vest. Pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma of burned sugar and some smoked notes. Oily texture, medium bitterness, a bit salty. Alcohol notes as well. Good one but not at the top.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2016
- tiefes Schwarz mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Espresso, Rstmalz, Bitterschokolade, Lakritz, Anis, Brot, Rauch und eine Idee zuviel Alkohol - Carbonisierung knnte fr diesen Typ eine Spur weicher bzw. samtiger sein - sofort im Antrunk ist mir der Alkohol einfach zu wenig versteckt - die Kaffeenote, das Malz und der brotige Rauchgeschmack harmonieren sehr schn im Mittelteil miteinander - hier tritt die Alkoholnote erstmals wohltuend in den Hintergrund - im Abgang dann eine leichte Herbe und dann leider wieder der Alk-Hammer Fazit: Es gibt Imperial Stouts, welche den erhhten Alkoholgehalt weitwaus besser verstecken

alteregoo (1149) - POLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Obfita, beżowa i drobna piana, trwała, z niewielkim lejsingiem. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami. W aromacie nuty porto, czekolady, rumu, kawy i lukrecji, może nawet delikatna wanilia. W smaku słodko, treściwie - sporo czekolady, karmelu, kawy, syropu klonowego, lukrecji i posmakw utlenienia (porto, sherry, mid spadziowy, wanilia). Goryczka średnia, palona, wysycenie niskie, drobniutkie. W odczuciu dość gęste, wyklejające, lekko cierpkie piwo, popiołowe i rozgrzewające na finiszu.
Fajny, degustacyjny RIS, ładnie ułożony i zbalansowany, z perfekcyjnie ukrytym alkoholem i nutami utlenienia - zapewne sporo pomogło mu w tym płtoraroczne leżakowanie - tak czy inaczej trunek godny polecenia :)

TheCametron (2422) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 9, 2016
Another bottle picked up in Dresden. Consumed during the great blackout. Fortunatly, this badboy doesnt need refrigerating so made its way to the front of the queue. Pours Oily Black with a thin tan head. Inky. Massive flavour bomb. Burnt toast, licorice, booze and heavy yet smooth malt character. This is my kind of imperial stout. Something to sit take your time with.

Bottle. Black pour. Aroma of licorice, burned sugar and malt. Thick sweet taste of licorice, burned sugar, coffee and malt. Nice thick body, but a bit too much licorice.

wrlangin (210) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
330 ml bottle from Cru in Brisbane. Drank at home. Pours black with medium tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Robust flavours of toasted malt, chocolate, and maybe slight anise. Very enjoyable and I would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2900) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Black body, light brown head. Aroma has plums, figs, rich molasses, some medicinal hops. Flavour has rich caramel and some deep coffee with dark fruits. One of the best ones Ive had for a while. Barkeep said they aged this keg for some time because it was too sweet. Still has sweetness but not too much. When it warms liquorice comes through. Bit salty somehow. Cant just stop getting new things from this one.
