kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Pitch black, malty coffee smell. Quite sour taste. Dry, dry stout even to be imperial style. There are plenty of aromas, birch, nuts, bread, basement, earth, even a bit smokiness. To me this could be better if this would be just a tiny bit more sweet. BTW I did not notice that this beer has 11% before writing this rating, so while begin strong the beer does not give it out easily. That tells something about amount of other malty aromas.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
330ml bottle enjoyed on an advent afternoon at Skarven in Troms. Oily pour, deep, dark coloured body, bubbly tan-coloured head. Inviting aromatic brew with a good punch of dark malts and dark fruits. Well integrated taste character with a bit of everything, so to speak; coffee, chocolate, liquorice and berries. Dark and dried fruits to the lingering ending. Integrated warming alcohol. Full bodied. A lot of praise for this one and very suitable for the right Yuletide feel (Troms, 20.12.2011).

rodenbach99 (4532) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bire brune trs fonce avec une mousse brune peu durable (normal pour une bire 11,0%). Le nez est peu complexe avec ses effluves de caf. Il y a beaucoup de caf. En bouche la texture est de moyenne facture, elle est longue et malheureusement il y a une touche poussireuse en fin de bouche. La caf domine aussi le palais.

nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Dark brown with very little head. Not as viscous as many RIS. Big nose of chocolate, raisins, cola, coffee, vanilla, and slight funk. Earthy and musty in taste. Lightly carbonated with raisins, chocolate, and cough medicine. Lots of flavors, not all working harmoniously. Strange maltiness on finish that doesnt quite belong.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma raisins, nuts, plumes. Like a barley wine. Strong palate and a hint of alcohol. Not Bad.

Flaske 0,33l p Vertshuset Skarven i Troms. Kullsort. Hyt luftig mokkafarget skum som varer ei god stund. God sjokolade- & karamellaroma. Innbydende. Oljeaktig munnflelse. Smaken godt integrert. Karamell. Frukt. Lakris. Glir over i en trr fruktig ettersmak som varer. Alkoholen merkes overhode ikke.

Csak a j sr, Budapest. tlthatatlan fekete szn, tetejn kevs krmes vilgosbarna habbal. Illata hords, aszalt gymlcss, prklt malts, kvs, vanlis, kiss dohnyos s meglepően komls! zben sem annyira a prklt jegyek, mind inkbb a gymlcss, komls zek rvnyeslnek jobban. Szraz, nagyon testes, nem tl keserű imperial stout, melynek magas alkoholtartalmt szpen elrejtettk, nagyon knnyen csszik! Igazn szpen kiegyenslyozott darab, nekem nagyon bejtt, tetszik ez a főzde.

0,33 l bottle, Csakajosor.
Poured Black with a small but creamy beige head. Complex aroma of roasted malt, peat and earth, molasses and dried fruits like raisins, some vanilla and tobacco. Oily body with a rich texture. Cocoa and dark chocolate, roasted grains and light hops, molasses and green leaves. Good, very good one!

lefossoyeur (612) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
Pitch black with a thin moka head. Intense fruity aromas with cocoa and chocolate and roasted toast undertones. Medium to full body, smooth, abit raisiny, lots of cocoa flavors finishing with a little bit of warmth from the alcohol. Almost well balanced, if for the alcohol burn in the end.
