COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout – 10,2% vol. Twice the amount of dark roasted malts used, massive Imperial stout. This is a mad one. Black brown colour with a thick and creamy tan head that can be added to as you wish if you give the bottle a swirl. Give this beer time to breathe and blossom into something truly stunning. Chocolate and alcohol are right there at the front but do not at all overpower the gorgeousness that is underneath. Full of leather, vanilla, amazing wooden notes, beautifully floral character from the hops, thick Belgian chocolate, much character. The flavour of crazy wooden tartness. An extremely bitter finish seems to come out of nowhere and is what really makes this quite unique. Superb width in the mouth and coats the whole palate beautifully. Alcohol 12% in latere versies

From a 4 year old bottle, amazingly complex aroma , leather , wood and dark stewed fruit. No carbonation, dark cherry flavour, then bitter chocolate on the finish

Kran. Klasyczny stout, ale brakuje jaja do imperialnego. Malutko ciała, nijakie takie. Kwasy jakie? Wymrażałbym delikwenta.

Cybuch (589) - Muszyna, POLAND - DEC 1, 2017
W aromacie kawa, czekolada, bardzo przyjemny, klasyczy, nie jakis turbo intensywny. Barwa czarna, piana drobna ladna. W smaku srednio geste, palone, sliwka. Alkohol czuc, jest tez kwaskowe na finiszu. Byloby fajnie ale na finiszu troche kiepsko.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 33cl bottle from Broucafe de Molen, enjoyed at home in a snifter on 24-Nov-2017. ABV 11.9%. Dark brown/black with a thick beige coloured head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood and coffee. Full body with soft carbonation. Taste of roasted malt, liquorice root, coffee beans, cocao nibs and hops. Light to medium bitterness. Excellent.

Adamsville (396) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2017
À noter : bouteille de 4 ans.

Apparence : Noire, léger col brun foncé, carbonatation moyenne.

Nez : Café torréfié, malt grillé, cacao, léger aspect caramélisé.

Goût : Torréfaction, cacao, café, caramel, finale sur des notes de malt grillé et de cendres. Moyennement sucrée, moyennement amère en finale; sèche.

Sensation : Dense, effervescence plutôt faible, chaleureuse, longue en bouche.

Bref : Imperial stout axée sur les accents du malt, du caramel aux cendres, et sur l’équilibre entre les notes sucrées et celles grillées/amères. Le tout, en cachant bien ses presque 12% d’alcool. Je ne serais pas surpris si une version ayant moins d’un an soit encore plus intéressant car, au fil des gorgées, la bière devenait de plus en plus axée sur le caramel. À déguster lentement.

On tap at Armsby Abbey. Poured dark black into a snifter. Closer to single malt scotch than beer this one is a winner. Very complex with flavor notes changing as it warmed up. Oh man, really good!

W aromacie pojawia się wanilia, mleczna czekolada i mocno palona kawa. Smak został zdecydowanie zdominowany przez gorzką czekoladę i tytoń. Gorzki, klasyczny RIS.

Bottle. Black beer with small, creamy, beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, chocolate liquor, roasted malts, light licorice and wood. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter, dark chocolate, cocoa, licorice, dried fruits, light roasty, with notes of coffee. Bittersweet chocolate and licorice in the finish. Close to full bodied, oily, with soft to average carbonation. Great RIS and another great beer from de Molen.

pawos (274) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Kolor całkowicie czarny, z dość obfitą pianą. W aromacie wanilia, beczka (taniny), czekolada. W smaku, słodkie, pełne, bardzo gładkie i aksamitne. Wysycenie niskie. Goryczka przyjemna, lekko czekoladowa. Czuć wyraźną czekoladę oraz smaki beczkowe, drzewne. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

3.6
datrael (621) - Krakow, POLAND - SEP 27, 2017
W aromacie wanilia, kokos, praliny, espresso, gorzkie kakao. Z wyglądu czarne z beżową, niezłą pianą. W smaku gorzka czekolada, espresso, nuty palone, kakao. Wyraźna, palona goryczka, ciało gęste, aksamitne, dość pijalne. Ogólnie solidny ris, choć nic nie urywa
