Imperial stout referment par les Mousquetaires, dun niveau de 9 % abv. Mon exemplaire pouvait dpasser allgrement juillet 2017, mais il a succomb lhiver 2015 Couleur noir profond, lopacit trs forte. Mousse brun moyen, texture solide en haut, stable 3 mm. Armes de caf italien, cassonade, candi brun, ft de chai, pointe de Madiran. 1re bouche trs souple, la magnifique entame malt/houblon, avec une pointe anise. Arrire-bouche dense, sur des malts torrfis finement. 2me au superbe ensemble malt/pices, avec une pointe fine menthole. Arrire-bouche avec rglisse, acajou, pointe de mandarine confite. 3me au grandiose ensemble malt/houblon avec une pointe de lierre. Arrire-bouche aux nuances superbes, trs fine, complexe, riche. Longueur o on part sur le whisky, caf italien, bonbon lanis, pointe de cassis. Jambes fines, serres. Levure dense, originale, trs belle ligne. Alcool la remarquable performance de soutien aux saveurs. Finale dont on se relverait la nuit pour en prendre une seule gorge. CONCLUSION: trs grande bire, qui nest certes pas fidle au standard imprial stout, mais on sen tape les ballerines . En tout cas, celles du Bolsho!!!

75 cl fles. Mooi bruin schuim. Typische stout-smaak. Caramel en chocolade. Zeer lekker. Niets negatiefs te vermelden.

Taste from the bottle. Milk chocolate, yeasty, toast aromas. Black colour, with delicate cleared flashes. Clear. Impressive, big, slowly disappearing creamy head. Medium sweet. A bit of bitterness (like from dark chocolate). Medium/full body. Average carbonation. Strongly suggested to taste.

Dobry imperialny stout. Wyglad do bezowo brazowawa piana wielka i stoji jak dab, trwale i wytrwale. Kolor ciemno brazowy z licznymi bordowymi refleksami, piwo nie jest intensywnie czarne, ale po dolaniu mazi z dna robi sie ciemno brazowe nieprzezroczyste prawie. Zapach kawowy, czekoladowy i tostowy. W smaku kawa gozkie espresso, czekolada deserowa i mus czekoladowy. Po przelknieciu goryczka daje we znaki mocno, ale po chwili ustepuje. Przeplata sie to z nieco slodowoscia i czekoladowym wykonczeniem. Ciekawe i troche inne imperialne Stout. Elegancka butelka lakierowana zacheca do konsumpcji

Icedwarf (1474) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
Zwart bier met mooie bruine schuimkraag. Smaak is krachtig, bitter rookachtig, licht zoet, chocolade, mokka en koffie met iets van drop en pruimen. Erg goed bier, mooi in balans.

75 cl. [email protected]: dark brown slightly going to black with a deeply tanned head, taste is very bitter, very strongly roasted coffee & malts, nearly burned but not there yet, going into slight bitter ashes in the aftertaste, bitter deeply roasted aftertaste, underneath that there is some fresh coffee beans, cacao, hint of liquorice, very bitter chocolate with some chocolate truffles buried underneath, hint of berries, nice one, I am digging this

emartell (352) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JUL 8, 2012
El primer contacto con esta gran cerveza es a travs del aroma..... Y cabe decir que es excelente! Intenso y concentrado, pero a la vez complejo. Destacan las notas a chocolate y cafe con destellos ligeros a nuez. Tambin se hace presente las maltas tostadas que impregnan la copa de esta maravilla. Finalmente se perciben ligeras notas a canela. En cuanto a la apariencia, totalmente la de una Imperial Stout. Color negro profundo, cuerpo redondo, corona de espuma abundante que se diluye lentamente, burbujas de tamao medio que se adhieren firmemente a la copa. En boca, impecable. Estructura elegante y sumamente densa. Cremosa y suave a la vez con un ligero toque amargo. Al paladar, confirma todas aquellas sensaciones que se desprenden del resto de los sentidos. Principalmente malta tostada, cafe, ligero sabor a chocolate y vainilla, toques de canela y nuez. Ligero sabor amargo, el cual no empalaga y permite disfrutar ampliamente esta cerveza, la cual oculta completamente su potencia alcohlica. Su final intenso hace cerrar con broche de oro la degustacin de sta gran bebida!!

This stuff pours masterfully. The head is easily manipulated after a few minutes but always substantial. The aroma is pretty yeasty and fascinating in complexity. The palate is various and the taste is as good as the aroma. This became my favorite beer when I found that I liked the art thats achieved through dark IPA. I am a stout fan and IPA fan in particular. I am not a fan of Belgians or Trappists. Or the ones Ive tried...

huineman (638) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2016
At Peter Rabbit & Friends, Madrid. Pours dark brown with red shades. Dense thick tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, espresso, ruccola and strawberry. Mouth feels silky, dense, creamy. Low carb. Great final bitterness. No licorice flavor whatsoever, even though I specifically looked for it. Very nice stout.
