The_Osprey (9916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2018
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd's Bush as Marble Decadence, 10.5%. Good to catch up with this one. Pours a dark brown with a slight red hue, big dense foamy brown head endures and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is fruited dark chocolate, cocoa powder, dark fudge. Body is smooth and rounded with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is vanilla, fudgey, earthy, little charcoal, spicy finish with a little resin. Quite nice. (8-4-7-3-15=3.7)

Heidbummer (1044) - SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Can from Salt Horse. Pours black, thin white head dissolving down from initial foam. Big coffee and roasted malt aroma, some booze in the nose too. It's really dry which I like - no thick oily impy here. It's complex - lots of deep coffee notes, charcoal, treacle. A bit of booze heat in the back, which lifts it rather than overwhelming it. Excellent.

Black with thin head. Aroma has a touch of wood and alcohol. Flavour has bittersweet roasted malts and burnt cream. Thick lucious texture.

beeebon (508) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2017
Can purchased from Red Elephant Beer Cellar in TRuro. On can reads "Packaged in Nov 2017" so I am guessing this is quite 'young'. Pours thick oily black with initially medium tan foamy head which quickly settles but leaves retention throughout. Atoma is rich, full of sweet roasted malt, licorice, coffee, a touch of soy sauce and I also pick up some banana... maybe that's just me. Taste is roasty bitter but not too strong, nicely balanced with some sweetness and ever so slightly tart (perhaps as the beer is so young). Slick feeling in the mouth with just enough carbonation to liven it up. Long lasting and pleasurable finish. This is a fine Imperial Stout!

rodenbach99 (4571) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Style et résumé: Imperial stout un peu vieux.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016. Vintage 2009.
Portrait: Une robe brune noire foncée. Un nez oxydé car vieux de chocolat, de malt grillé. Une bouche mince avec des saveurs de chocolat et de malt rôti. La dernière mais pas la meilleure de cette superbe dégustation. Merci à tous.
Note: 6+/10

Christos (5938) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2016
(Marble Decadence) Bottle 750 ml, corked an caged, served into a snifter at home, ABV 8.7%. Thanks goes to Beersiveknown, cheers Steve! Black coloured body with one finger of beuge head on top, good density and retention. Aroma of olive pit, liquorice, faint chocolate notes. Taste of roasted malts, burnt wood, faint chocolate, light liquorice, nice fruity notes and quite bitter. Medium body with soft carbonation, very dry palate. Nothing extreme but honest and very drinkable.
