3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(50 cl bottle from the brewery; Batch #355 BBD: January 2018) Pours black with tan, quickly receding head. Decent regeneration. Aroma is wet oak and bourbon with some booze upfront that fades leaving notes of fruits like prune and plum. Soft carbonation, full body, oily texture and a leathery finish. Taste follows the flavour with some added caramel. Girlfriend says: "it’s less tasty than the Pride."

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle from 1420, León. Pours black with nice tan head, some head retention, some lacing. Full bodied, soft carbonation, silky texture. Bourbon, burnt wood, liquor aromas. Taste is incredible balanced, smooth, rich palated. Flavours of wood, raisins, liquorice, liquor, roasted malt, all combined in a lingering palate, extremely well balanced and enjoyable. An amazing one.

Deep opaque brown color, small brownish head. Fresh wood in the nose. Full-bodied. Wood is present in the flavor, alcohol too then toasted maltyness. I prefer regular. Not much bourbon here.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Botella de 50 cl en León una noche de verano de 2013 en Llamas y en Cimeria 7-12-13. Alucinante imperial stout. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura que desaparece a la mitad del vaso casi por completo. Cuerpo fuerte. Aromas intensos a malta tostada algo de chocolate y mucha mucha madera quemada de dulce bourbon. Gran sabor de licor de pasas añejas. Sabor intenso tostado y predominio de madera quemada de bourbon muy bien integrado con el sabor amargo, que viene después del bourbon. Cerveza imprescindible repetir, una gran imperial stout

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
botlte from toft vin, islands brygge. (great shop - insane selection of amager bottles).
pitch dark, smooth light brown head.
not that strong aroma, wood, bourbon, hard roasted malts, very nice, but sort of closed in on itself. Flavor is extremely woody. wood, glue, tar, bourbon, I wonder how long this has been on wood... also roasted malts,and the general fantastic flavor profile of mr. frederiksen. however, glue and weird woody notes are a distraction. If You are looking for an extreme beer, look no further.
