Franckg (1959) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2018
Bouteille. Robe noire opaque qui semble moins visqueuse que les trois autres versions et surmontée d'un léger col de mousse brunâtre et rocailleux/laiteux. Arômes de malt torréfié, chocolat noir poreux, pâte d'amande, eau-de-vie aux mûres, traces d'anis et de café noir. En bouche, comme les trois autres itérations, forte entrée chocolatée et de malt torréfié très doux. Par contre, pas de transition vers des côtés boisées ou plus secs. Les saveurs continuent sur cette voie plus sucrée et vanillée avec de légères effluves épicées et même mentholées, crème d'amandes, caramel et une finale laissant entrevoir la liqueur par son goût franc et enivrant. Texture huileuse et velouté, corps rond. Excellente.

yngwie (17379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2018
Bottle. Close to jet black in color, oily pour, with no head or carbonation. Roasted malts, coffee grit, cocoa, booze and some notes of prunes and raisin in the aroma. It’s full-bodied and warming, with just a hint of carbonation. Rather dry for an Imperial Stout. Still some sweetness though, with licorice, roasted malts, cocoa, booze, raisins and a light bitterness touch. Lasting finish. A very pleasant one indeed, where the liquor is well integrated with the beer, not taking over. 180210

Black colour, minimum brown head that fades soon, small brwon lace. Aroma of chocolate vanilla, licorice, oak, coffee. I don't feel much the brandy. Full body, dense creamy texture. Carbonation is the usual in this kind of beers, not much. Taste of coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, vanilla. This is not the chili version but I feel some hot notes. Still can't get the brandy. A robust warming beer.

Bottle. Opaque, oily black pour with very thin white head. Aroma Is rich, syrupy chocolate, brandy, oak, booze, raisins, molasses and light roasty coffee notes. Taste is rich, sweet, boozy, not particularly complex, but definitely a mouthfull, palate is rich, full bodied and chewy. Satisfying RIS.

JefVerstraete (3838) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle from Taboada, Euro swap. Many thanks! Black sirupy beer, thin brown head. Roasty but more on the sweet side. Lots of brandy, rather sweet. Nice sipper.

A rich and flavorful RIS where the brandy barrels notes are easily recognizable but it never fall into the "too much" category. Well balanced all along with a flavor profile dominated by milk chocolate, brandy fruitiness, roasted malts and wooden notes. Very good!

Bouteille (330 ml) à la maison. Couleur noire opaque, col beige de moyenne taille qui diminue rapidement et laisse une fine dentelle. Au nez, c'est à la fois riche et complexe, mais délicat et approchable. Il y a un aspect fruité intéressant accompagné de chocolat au lait, de malt rôti, de notes de guimauves, d'un brin d'alcool et des notes boisées. Au goût, c'est modérément sucré et le chocolat au lait vole la vedette sans que l'équilibre en soit affecté. Corps moyen. Carbonatation modérée. Texture un brin huileuse. Finale chocolatée avec un léger réchauffement gracieuseté de l'alcool. Une belle réussite de la part de Montseny ici, un stout impérial riche et savoureux qui présente clairement des notes provenant des barils de brandy sans jamais tomber dans l'excès ou la démesure. Très bien fait!
