    5 - Evoo4u - Julebryg - 5.0%

    Clear deep gold, fluffy head. Aroma is all spices. Settles into a rather sessionable beer, the spices seem to dominate but there is a clean malty beer underneath with a firm but clean bitterness. Quite nice.
    This is by no means a criticism of the beer but the Julebryg spice mix viscerally reminds me of the Imperial Leather soap at my grandparents house when I was a kid :O

    23 - bierre De ble noir

    Fresh is best, eh Perry
    Slight pepper and zing in the aroma
    Nice gentle dark malts in flavour.
    After taste I don't recognise so I'm putting that down to the buckwheat.
    I'd say this was a dark saison if it didn't say witbier.
    A more subtle beer than Perry's normal offering, but well crafted sir.

    12 - angus_grant - imperial porter
    Very dark opaque brown with dense tan head and brutal death metal lacing, aroma is slightly chocolatey with this malty/spicy/sweet thing that is similar to smelling muscovado sugar? It's hard to describe. Starts off full, medium carbonation, well attenuated. Quite delicious. Different to a typical porter in my mind. Send me the recipe pls? xoxo

    Basically a beafed up version of Charlie Papazian's Silver dollar porter. His recipe is so bloody solid, it has stood up to all my bastardisations so far.

    Am rebrewing next weekend so I get 23 litres to drink instead of just 4 sample bottles. :drinkingbeer:

    Hopefully hit my gravity numbers a bit better as I was down on OG and also up on FG

    To my taste it needed just a little more bitterness as the intense malt lingered a bit too much. I reckon it would be amazing in 12 months though.

    Nick Holt's barrel-aged imperial amber.
    Once it warmed up, it started releasing all its goodness.
    Some rum/spirit aromas followed by a gentle vanilla.
    There's some spirit flavours as well, but the main flavour is sweet smooth malt.
    It's slightly boozy in aroma and flavour, but at 9.5% I'd expect that.
    I'm not a big fan of amber's as I find them a bit one dimensionally sweet. I think I'll ask for imperial from now on.
