Patjeadam (154) - - JAN 22, 2014
The first tastes are boozy, but also chocolate, bitter, licqour, little smokey, some ruby red, but the taste develops and after half a bottle (room temp, at home), it kicks in properly: wow. This is amazing. It seemed out of balance. But then it somehow seems to be together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

mathieuc (3870) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2016 From 2013. Opens up without a sound almost and very high fill, it pours a very dark brown with no head at all. Nose is of vanilla, grapes and you know youre going to get a splitting headache from all that alcohol. Slight smoke. Taste is more of the grapes/raisins and is surprisingly not too boozy. A light chest warming and thats all. Moderately sweet. Some milk chocolate and coconut. Body is medium-full (scratch that, its full) and carbonation almost nil. Sticky. A fair imperial stout that is a lot more drinkable than I thought it would be. Barrel could have been more upfront, though.

androman (2140) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
33cl bottle at home from thebeershop-online.com, bottled in November 2013. Nose is peated whiskey. Body is pitch black, no head. Aroma is whiskey, roasted malt, licorice, milk chocolate, mild coffee, red wine, raisin. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, medium fruity sour. Finish is long lasting roasty medium bittersweet, medium fruity sour, medium alcohol warmth. Full body, oily sticky texture, flat carbonation. A bit heavy sweetish dessert beer, interesting, usually not really my thing but there are moments when its good like now.

tiong (6905) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma of syrup, burnt malts, ash, wood, oak and vanilla. Taste is sweet, syrupy and slightly acidic with hints of wood, oak, vanilla, toffee and some off notes. Finish is sweet, syrupy and roasty with some wood, oak, vanilla and some green apples. Feels a bit off, not very drinkable.

Pours black with no head. Aroma is strong coffee, red wine, red sour, sherry, hint of smoke, brown sugar. Very vinous and fruity. Medium sweet, medium bitter, short aftertaste. Body is medium to full, palate is oily, carbonation is flat. Such odd brew.

MrHangover (4355) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle, bottled November 2013, drank today. Pours out a pitch black, as good as headless beer. The little that is on there disappears within seconds. Aroma of loads of booze, cognac or bourbon, oaky notes, vineous touches and licorice among malts. Very rich. Flavor is intense, loads of sweet sugars going on, loads of booze and woody notes. Sweet molasses and thick licorice dominate the palate, slight roasty finish oversauced with a dense bourbon sauce. Immensly complex and strong. Thick mouthfeel, long sweet sticky aftertaste. No carbonation going on. Epic brew.

Une bire catalogue par ratebeer en imperial stout!! Do sa trs mauvaise cote en style videmment puisque ce nen est pas un Le brasseur en parle aussi, mais en situant bien quil sagit dun barrel aged .. Ceci change compltement la donne!!! Niveau abv de 11,3% pour 24,5 plato (pardon), et un ebu de 66. 7 malts au menu: munich, choco, cara, roasted, smoked, pils et brown. 5 houblons pour agrmenter: legacy, saaz, sladek, premiant et columbus. Quand on commence avec 12 ingrdients (sans compter leau, la levure et un peu de sucre brun ), on commence trs fort.... Mon exemplaire avait 2 ans et 2 mois, sur les 10 ans prconiss par le brasseur, il tait donc en pleine force de lge... (comme moi, hum hum). Signalons aussi la cire noire sur la capsule et le col de la bouteille, vraiment trs classe... Couleur noir charbon (ebc de 328). Liquide parfaitement lisse, comme un grand vin. Une sorte de force tranquille mane de cette apparence, un peu comme un lac dcosse la profondeur insouponne... et par ailleurs insonde. Armes de whisky de rserve, ft, baies noires, pain complet, certains vins du Rhne. 1re bouche souple lentame sur du whisky et baies noires, avec une pointe de caf, et une lgre touche de fume. Arrire-bouche sur du malt torrfi, moka, cassis. 2me sur whisky, ft, tanin, pointe de Chteauneuf. Arrire-bouche large, avec des nuances trs pingles. 3me sur du pruneau, bois de chai, pointe de gin haut de gamme. Arrire-bouche avec whisky, genivre, sucre de canne. Longueur vraiment trs originale, liquoreuse, dense, aux nuances infinies. Jambes huileuses. Levure dense, forte, trs grande ligne. Alcool qui est un maestro ne supportant pas la moindre contradiction... La finale touche au mystre... CONCLUSION: lexemple mme de bire o on se demande si on est encore en prsence dune bire, tant cest riche sur la liqueur, lalcool , le ft, le vin, le bois. Ce qui me fait dire au sujet du style,que lon nest pas en prsence dun imperial stout, mais bien dun barley wine, dans le plein sens du terme. Un vin dorge et on croit parfois rver .
