OminouSC2 (521) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Classic Imperial Stout with a twist. Aromas of soy, roasted malt, chocolate, cherries and coffee. The cherry/sherry combination doesnt add much to the taste though - it drowns within the bitter-sweet flavors of the Imperial Stout, even though it adds some sourness. The concept of this beer sounds really cool, but it doesnt really work out as intended I feel.

On tap or bottle at CBC 2013. Pours black with a light brown head with some lacings. Bitter and sweet with malty aromas of toffee and burnt malts. Hints of caramel. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Sweet and dry finish.

Bottle at home. Pours a full dark depth with a deep tan head. Gonna mark the appearance high despite it fairy quickly looking flat and loosing the initial good looks. Aroma of dark fruits, dark malts and some booze. Quite tart at first; providing a bit of a shock to the palate. This rounds off with adjustment and a little time to warm up. I found this beer both challenging - initially - then very enjoyable, particularly the fruity cherries soaked in booze and aged on wood experience. Rich and tangy.

from Erzbierschof - black beer without foam; woody aroma with strong notes of black cherries and licorice; some notes of cacao; thick and a bit oily, full-bodied and quite sweet, a fair earthy bitterness and a long woody, chocolaty finish with more notes of black cherries and cacao

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Actually I dont need notes to remember this one. It was one of my favorite beers. It had really really nice mix of cherries, sherry whisky with some raisins and caramel thrown in. I would really like to try it again to see if it lives up to the memories.
