Fukito's rating

Fukito (1059) - Santiago, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle, January 2013. Pitch dark color, medium tan/ creme head that diminishes to a thin rim. Intense roasted, coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste is intense, rich, of molasses and tobacco. Incredibly drinkable for a beer so big, almost no alcohol burn. Warming and moreish. Easily one of the top imperial stouts I have ever had and another winner from Founders.

ardeo (429) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle. Liquide épais, noir, visqueux avec mousse brune abondante et stable laissant des dentelles sur mon verre ’tulip’. Fines bulles. Arômes : café, réglisse, raisin, vanille ensuite porto, fumé, un peu chocolat. Saveurs : frais, sur le café, les malts torréfiés, l’alcool et une impériale amertume. Costaude cette excellente Impy !

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie imp stout, smaken van geroosterde mout, chocola en koffie. Medium dikke textuur, mooie volle smaak. Heerlijk!

nogva (82) - NORWAY - JUN 3, 2017
Pours blacker than the innermost parts of Khazad-dûm with a brown creamy head that dissipates quickly leaving only a thin lacing. Rich aroma of coffee, brown sugar, burnt wood, some alcohol and even the sea. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Intense taste of salty licorice, bitter chocolate, roasted malt, cough syrup and a touch of dark fruits(?) with a dry and intense finish. Beware of the ABV ’cause this is seriously drinkable!

From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Watching Looper. Amazing in all aspects. Thick, with a delicious dark fruits profile. I found myself drinking it in small sips so that it never ends

alteregoo (1451) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUN 1, 2017
Piana brązowa, obfita, drobna i trwała. Kolor czarny jak smoła, nieprzejrzysty. W zapachu głównie intensywne nuty palone, kawowe, truflowe i toffi. W smaku słodkie, gładkie, są praliny, kakao, karmelki, kawa, jest likier karmelowy a w kontrze tytoniowo palona, dość wysoka i długa goryczka. Wysycenie nieco powyżej niskiego, w odbiorze dość gęste, oleiste, lekko wyklejające, z mocno rozgrzewającym alkoholem.
Bardzo intensywny, wręcz agresywny w odbiorze RIS, aczkolwiek z miękką, aksamitną fakturą. Chyba najbardziej przypomina mi pierwsze, najlepsze warki Black z Mikkellera...

karpik (1188) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, licorice in nose. Pours black with tan lacy head. Taste is medium sweet to sweet with chocolate, caramel, coffee, roastiness. Medium to high bitter finish, full body, soft carbo. Overall very good, I’m happy to try this classic.
