Saeglopur (2007) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 28, 2017
660 ml bottle, bottled 5/8/15, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, cinnamon, vanilla.
Tastes of dark chocolate, hot chili, vanilla, cinnamon, some coconut, some dark fruits.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes hot, roasty, moderate sweet, with chocolate, cocoa, some coffee, some liquorice.

Very nice. Really smooth nose, with roasty and sweet notes. Taste has too much hot chili for me, a bit too overpowering. Still a really nice sipper.

SebBrews (130) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours dark brown to black with zero head. No lacing. Aromas of raw cocoa beans, vanilla, cinnamon, some smoked wood and rum. Very balanced flavours of bittersweet roasted malts, cocoa beans, coke leaves, roasted coffee and discreet hints of smoked wood. The spiciness of the chilies is mild and noticeable only towards the back end. Sweet, warming finish with a a boozy kick. Viscous and full bodied, low carbonation levels. Overall an amazing, well-rounded and petfectly balanced imperial stout which avoids burnt and ashy characters. Im not a fan of spiced imperial stouts, but this is a great example of this sub-style.

neongolden (1448) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
(650ml 2016 bottle from boxbeers.dk shared) Pours black with a small dark tan head that fades to a ring with lace. Aroma is quite cinnamon-forward, especially before it breathed a bit, with rich dark malts, dark stewed fruit, light chocolate, somewhat green and spicy habanero, vanilla, rather sweet with moderating bitter/spicy notes. Flavour is dark chocolate and deep, well-balanced roasted malts, spicebox with cinnamon less obvious, vanilla, lightly nutty, with a chili heat that builds a bit into the finish along with a recapitulation of the spices. Semi-sweet at max, with a balanced roast and spice character that leads to a dusty dry aftertaste, not a dessert sugarbomb. Medium-full body, velvety, light carbonation. Nice brew, its quite well-balanced and lets all the additions work in harmony. The only variant Ive had did kick it up a notch over the base, but this is good stuff.
