hawthorne00 (3848) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2016
2015 bottle (Wine Down, Carnegie). Dark brown, 1 cm light tan head. Aroma of brioche, mocha, caramel, anise. 7+ Silky body is perhaps a little lighter than expected. Sweet at first but leans towards dry at the end with firm bitterness. Mocha, dark berries, toasted caramel. Coriander? Not all that roasty. No overt alcohol, surprisingly. Pretty good, old fashioned. Will age well.

Villyzzz (370) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours almost black with hint of red. Tiny off-white head. Aroma is a little roasty with malts, chocolate, coffee, licorice and alcohol. Taste is quite dry and sweet roasted coffee and malts. Hints of chocolate, licorice and dried fruit. Aftertaste is boozy and quite hoppy for imperial. Pleasent beer but nothing special.

mice (925) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Hyvin tummanruskea, aavistuksen punertava olut kohtalaisella beigell vaahdolla, joka jtt reilusti pitsi. Tuoksu paahteinen ja kahvinen. Maussa ennen kaikkea kahvia ja suolaista paahteisuutta sek salmiakkia ja lakritsaista makeutta tasapainottamassa kokonaisuutta. Loppupuolella jonkin verran katkeruutta ja kitkerhk kahvisuutta. Varsin tytelinen suutuntuma. Hiilihappoja melko reilusti. Ei tm lajinsa parhaimmistoon nouse, mutta ihan nautittava olut.

Nurmis (595) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle at home. Pitch black with some white lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, liquorice and notes of alcohol and herbal hops. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Really good.

minihame2 (602) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Slightly translucent, black body with some white lacing. Faint aroma with malts and a little bit of coffee in the background. Taste begins sweet, some roasted malts and ends in a slightly bitter note. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really easy imperial stout, mostly sweet taste but its lacking all the good things like roastiness, heavy malt taste and rich body. I like it as a beer but as an imperial stout its very lackluster.

MiP (15479) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle, 10% at K16. Fruity aroma. Black colour, seems hazy. No head to speak of. Salty and roasted flavour. Sort of fruity finish.

bhensonb (14946) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle from BarleyWine. Bottle 1494 of the 2012 vintage. Pours dark brown with a sight beige or tan head. Aroma of mixed chocolate and licorice. Sweet and malty. Med body or so. Flavor is mixed licorice and chocolate. Some fruit notes - but not fresh. More dark or dried. Overall it has good flavor, but seems a bit thin and dry. But Im not the czar, so Ill say its a good drink.

Bottle. Brown color, wispy off-white head. Fairly dry aroma, wood and dark malts. Dry flavor, licorice, hops, oak, herbal notes. Full body, medium-light carbonation. Too dry.
