davidezdonz (488) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - APR 3, 2017
A 355ml bottle, bottled on 30th November 2016. Poured into a snifter. It was black in colour with a nice one finger fluffy brown head that dissipated fairly quickly but left spotty lacing. Aromas were roasty, chocolate, cherry and a hint of coffee. Tastes of roasty malts, rich bittersweet chocolate and coffee with hints of dark fruit balanced with some bitterness. Finish has a lasting ashy charcoal-ness. Smooth, velvety and full bodied with low carbonation. Overall nice and smooth. A good Russian Imperial Stout.

hauxe (712) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2017
Pours black from the bottle and leaves a light brown, creamy head. Lots of sticky lacing. The aroma is fudge, licorice, vanilla, roasted nuts, hints of ink. Taste is rich, sweet, tangy, trending bitter with roasted notes going into the finish. Overall a rich mix of fudge, coffee, plum and berry. Body is heavy with mild carbonation. A very good brew.

Poured into a pint ale glass at 60 degrees. Jet black with a 1/2 chocolate colored head that dissipated quickly. Aroma dark fruits, bubble gum that turns to chocolate. Taste smoke, oily coffee, dark chocolate. Finishes bitter with lasting notes of oily coffee and bitter chocolate. A complex imperial stout that might improve with age.
