Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle. The pour is a darker brown, with a hint of muddiness and a light brown head that vanishes without lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of port wine and dark fruits up front. The barrel is a little wet oak. There is a bit of whiskey and a light vanilla and chocolate added late. It’s really barrel and port dominated. The flavor is much of the same. The port really controls this one. The oak is strong and backed up by the whiskey. A light chocolate and a tiny bit of pepper come through on the finish, but it’s a little messy. The mouth feel is medium to heavy bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingering chocolate port finish with a touch of alcohol. This is pretty decent, but I wish it were thicker for sure. 8 4 7 4 15

hopscotch (11170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle... Pours dark brown with flashes of mahogany. No head or collar. The aroma features heaps of coffee beans, cocoa beans, vanilla beans and an unassertive splash of liquor. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of dark-roast coffee and dark chocolate – deep, black mocha. Lengthy acrid finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Habanero (4767) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016
Bottled. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, wood, vanilla, alcohol and dark fruit. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy. 🌟🌟🌟

PotjeBier (3505) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2016
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a rather dense beige head. Aroma’s: chocolate, sweet, roasted, ground coffee, fruity booze. Retronasal it’s roasted, chocolate, fruits, alcohol, coffee. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted, light bitter, chocolatey. Medium bodied, not as full as you’d expect. There’s some burn that could be from both the chillies and/or the alcohol, but some burn remains, so it’s probably the chillies. Finishes with chocolate, roast, moderate to full bitterness. Really nice.
