crim (218) - POLAND - OCT 5, 2016
W aromacie sos sojowy, słodka czekolada, kawa wanilia, troche wiśni W smaku pełne, słodkie, średnia gorycz posmak palony, słodki karmelowy, waniliowy i słodkiej czekolady Podsumowując piwo z 2011 roku, na duży minus sos sojowy, na plus traktują, dla mnie troche za słodkie ale warto sprbować

All you could want in an imperial stout. Taste is lightly roasty and bitter but mostly sweet and decadent, perfect for a dessert

mcberko (15407) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
2011 vintage. 500mL bottle, pours inky black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out decadent chocolate, a touch of roast, alcohol and some sherry oxidation. Flavour is decadent and complex as hell, with liqueur, booze and chocolate. Boozy, but in a pleasant way. Liqueury on the finish. Really a wonderful beer.

Jow (3648) - New York, USA - SEP 4, 2015
The last beer at the Rome tasting and its only fitting to go with a highly rated Italian brew to finish after previously drinking brews only from Albania, Croatia, Tunisia, Malta, Estonia, Denmark, Serbia, Kosovo, New Zealand, Belgium and the US. Pours thick oil can black. Nose of over ripe fruits, espresso, and booze. Tastes of molasses, blackberry, tobacco, cherry, brandy, espresso, chocolate, plums, and some earthy bitters to finish. rich and thick and delicious. Thanks again Alberto for hosting the excellent tasting.
