(500ml bottle from the LCBO, BB 6/16) Definitely well past it's stated best before date. Nearly black pour with a big pale tan head. Notes of acidic roasted dark malt, a little caramel, burnt nuts, soft vanilla, oak, subtle cacao, a bit of dark fruit, subtle salt liquorice, light green hoppy bitterness. Lightly sweet turning to fairly dry, a bare hint sour, astringent and roasty with moderate bitterness. Fairly thin body with average carbonation, no alcohol. For an old bottle this held up very well, not showing many overt signs of oxidation. Reasonably pleasant old school imp stout feel, not the easiest to drink but still pretty well-brewed.

Schwarz mit hellbraunem Schaum. Geruch ist schokoladig, etwas Kaffee und Vanille. Geschmack leicht rauchig, malzig mit schokoladigen, karamelligen Aromen. Dabei angenehm bitter und leicht süß und für ein Imperial Stout recht süffig. Sehr runde Sache! culchiem (4296) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2017
Draught in Delerium. Jet black with a minimal head. Aroma is molasses and malt. Flavour is raisins, caramel, warm malt, dry smoked wood. Lingering bitter finish.
Zlotta (4239) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2017
0.33 l bottle from 'Biermuda', best before April 2018. Clear, very dark ruby to black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, medium roasty and minimally fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, some licorice and hints of dark fruits. Quite sweet, malty, moderately roasty and a little fruity taste of dark chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, some licorice and a touch of dark fruits, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, moderately earthy-dry finish. Medium to full body, almost creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Classic Imperial Stout, great balance, good! DavidSvinth (427) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2017

Kaffe, eg, toast i næsen.
Fyldig og hverken for bitter eller for sød.
Helt ok. dorain (750) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2017
Aus der Flasche im 2015-08 getrunken. Ein sensationelles, balanciertes Imperial Stout was keine Wünsche an ein solches Bier offen läßt. Hammergeiler Stoff. LasseVPedersen (453) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle, 50cl. Pours very dark brown. Still some cola-colored hue to it. Dense and creamy, settled beige head. Sweet, roasted malty aroma with coffee, herbal hops, wild red berries, wood, chocolate, caramel, toffee, raisin, some weak yeast - and dare I say, red wine? Taste is similar. Bittersweet coffee, chocolate and vanilla flavour at first. As it warms more heavily malty sweetness, roasty with more ripe dark fruits; oak, wood and earthy feel. Served too cold. Waited 10-15 minutes; got even more malty notes, wood barrel, vanilla, white pepper, cocoa, cherry oats and roasted grains. Let it develop and reveal itself.
Medium body. Quite ... surprising for an almost 10 % beer. Flat carbonation and not that heavy mouthfeel. Best at its sweetspot between served too cold and getting bit flat and overly belgian ale-sweet. Get it right, and its great. brnandersen (4390) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2017
50 cl bottle poured in to a Snifter. BBE July 2019. Pitch black with a thin tanned head. Sweet roasted aroma with coffee, caramel malts, chocolate, fruity yeast, subtle wooden notes and berries. Herbal hops. Taste is sweet. Full body with an oliy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes lasting roasted bitter with fruity notes and dark malts. Nice Imperial Stout that still tastes good after 10 years on the market.
