This is the first Imperial stout I try. This will not be my favourite style but it's quite interesting to try. Pours dark brown/goldish color with a small beige head and low to very low carbonation. The aroma has some caramel, alcohol and a bit of coffee. Taste a lot like coffee, a bit sweet. On palate has full body with a oily texture. The flavour is persistent with medium bitterness and a bit spicy. It's a strong beer, as my first imperial stout I was surprised by the strong coffee flavour and because it's really smooth.

VueltaBirrista (129) - Murcia, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2017
De color negro, al verter en copa tipo snifter genera muy poquita espuma de color marrón claro. Su aspecto es denso y licoroso. Su aroma complejo. Café torrefacto, chocolate y vainilla. En boca es cremosa y muy alcohólica. Su 11% ABV calientan a base de bien. Se aprecia perfectamente ensamblado el dulce de la malta y chocolate y el sabor cremoso del café. Además intuyo toques especiados, entre picante y salado. Su final es amargo, pero muy agradable.

Eructoblaster (4328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2017
On tap at L’Autre Oeil (Gatineau, Qc). Opaque black body with a thin, lasting, brown creamy head. Rich, strong malty aroma with cocoa, woody, roasted coffee, and some subtle vanilla hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its complex, well balanced, robust malty taste carries chocolate, coffeeish, plummy, and vineous notes. Ends with a long bittersweet/roasty finish. Awesome!

R4N5H (1288) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 On tap at Cocovail Beer Hall, Barcelona on 25-Aug-2017. Dark brown, almost black in colour with a medium sized beige coloured head which settles down quickly. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee beans. Full body and medium/soft carbonation. Taste of expresso, cocao nibs, resin, malt, and spices. Incredibly smooth with a little alcohol buzz and a dry bittersweet finish.

nearbeer (5557) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2017
33 cl bottle, batch no. 01-01-17. Coal black with a small spongy foam. Dense aroma of fig, dark chocolate, dark toffee, soy, black strap molasses and a hint of char. Tastes of a delicious blend of the same plus touches of sourish cream and dark toasted whole grain bread. Heavy body is smooth with low-medium fizz and never gets sticky even with the huge, rich malt flavors. Only a small warming trace of the well-disguised 11%.

kaserov (922) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención pero no llega a disiparse del todo). Carbonatación mínima. Textura oleosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta, mucho cacao, algo de café, ligero licor. En boca entra dulce, con muchísimo cacao y café, ligeros toques ahumados y final donde se funden el licor (muy suave, casi inexistente), el cacao y el café. Postgusto a cacao y café. Fácil de beber e intensa. Me sorprendió el poco alcohol que se capta tanto en boca como en aroma. Delicia.

tmoreau (4590) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2017
11.2 oz. bottle viscously poured to a Czech-pils glass at home. showing a black/brown hue, a presentably lasting layer of brownish tan head foam, and good cling to the ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted, concentrated coffee & cocoa extract, maltiness, with a touch of freezer burn & woodiness, treacle, toffee, sweetness, and a hint of salty soy. The taste was similar notes less the soy, continued strong mocha character, a bit of tartness & tanginess, roasted astringency, and earthy bitterness. Full bodied, with low carbonation, a sticky/syrupy mouthfeel, and booze & warmth that were also definite contributors. Very robust, and almost too hefty to enjoy more than one at a sitting.
