Almogabar (35) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - JAN 11, 2017
Botella comprada en Liquidos (Zaragoza). Estilo Imperial Stout britnico "de libro", una de las mejores cervezas del estilo. Color negro, corona beige. Aromas a torrefactos, chocolates y ahumados. Se aprecia cierto dulzor. Cerveza equilibrada, de sabor marcado por el caf, chocolate, humo, madera. Final ligeramente amargo.

Youre doing yourself a disservice if you dont try this beer. Chocolate, malty and just the slightest amount of bitterness. Lucky this comes in a 4-pack because if was a 12-pack I would have drank every bottle.

A toasty, chocolate offering residing beneath a light brown head. The head dissipated quickly however. A round and smooth presentation with a bit of bitterness on the finish. Not as complete as Id hoped, but a long finish and drinks easily enough. Ive never been disappointed in a Sam Smiths, but Im rarely blown away either. They seem to all be easily drinkable.

Priced right at the nearby grocery so why not. Appearance is inline for an imperial stout, nice and dark. It gives a fantastic light brown head that unfortunately dissipated fairly quickly. The nose is intriguing, licorice to me with a note of dark fruit. The taste is lesser. The carbonation is gone so no mouthfeel from that. Milk chocolate with a firm maltiness and dough. A slight hop finish with a some bitterness to complete it all. Okay but I prefer many others.

Personal blind tasting, 4th out of 4.
Almost definitely Sam Smith. Fruity, almost appley, not roasty. Yeah, apple all over and light but no fun to drink. Every few years I try to return to this beer but I always get some very poor beer. Not sure if I just get old bottles but enough is enough.

MarcinG (780) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 Butelka 330ml. Czarny kolor. Piana bezowa lekko kremowa. W zapachu duzo sliwki rodzynek i czarnej porzeczki ,wszystko podparte solidna dawka kawy i czekolady. W smaku slodkawe o owocowej nucie potem pojawia sie kawowo-czekoladowa goryczka. Karmel i lukrecja w tle. Niska karbonacja i delikatna tekstura sprawia ze jest bardzo pijalne. Moje niestety zostalo podane zbyt zimne....

DonGregorio (321) - POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle. Black beer with small beige head. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate and some dark fruits. Taste of plums, chocolate, caramel, medium sweet and light roasty bitter. Medium- body, soft carbonation, texture is between thin and oily. Too thin and light for an imperial stout. OK, but not very interesting.
