JAXSON (576) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Another lil medicine bottle of Dutch barrel-aged stout. Pours black with a handsome ring around the collar, perhaps a touch more carbonation than some of these have. Nose is a bit sweeter, vanilla like, with a touch of anise, not so peat and ash forward. Really high carbonation on this. Dark chocolate and anise in the mouth followed by a strong wine-like red currant and berry flavor. Lots of chocolate cherries in the finish, slightly tart. Im not a huge fan of wine barrel aged stouts, especially ones that focus on very sweet berry flavors such as this. Not bad, decent, drinkable at least, tons better than Black Hole (Red Wine) at least.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012
(Bottle) Pours near black with a small head. The aroma is medium roasted with subtle barrel profile. Tones of coffee, light vanilla, light floral honey and tiny hints of grapes. Also room for some fresh dark berries. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Coffee, dark chocolate, subtle barrel character as well as some hoppy notes. The mouthfeel is soft and almost oily. Citric and light numbing finish. Medium bodied.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle 1537 of 2040. Midnight pour, not a hint of light penetrating the body. 1/4 inch latte head that leaves a spot or two and diminishes into a cloud that defiantly floats above the squid ink. Tons of dark fruit, touch of soy, and lots of booziness. Oak, vanilla, bit of red wine, chocolate, and molasses. Chewy.

kappldav123 (6014) - GERMANY - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Starts intense malty, strong, roasty, not too dry. Modest bitter background. Finish warming-malty, soft, modest sweet. Very well balanced. Great imperial stout.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2011
Very dark reddish brown. Like black with a nice beige head above. Nice sweet roasted coffee and chocolate, wood, raisins. A bit liquorish, but on a nice moderated way. Very nice.
