jonno (2524) - JAPAN - JUN 29, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2009 Rich, deep and dark. Aged for nearly a year apparently. Not sure what type of barrel. Similar to the original witha more velvety smoothness, but with a bit less bite. very nice.

Bottled (8%) Opaque black, beige head. Vanila and calvados up front. Mid sweet with less malt softness than the non-barrel version. Vanilla, cedar and calvados comes to dominate chocolate and tobacco and with the extra flavours from the barrel it looses some subtlety.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2009
Bottled. Pours out in a opaqye black colour with a small tan-foam. Rich aroma of oak-leaves, black currant and dense smooth dark malts. Full-bodied with notes of oak, leaves, vanilla, tar and roasted coffeee. Long smooth warming finish. Really tasty but the non-barrel version is a notch better. Thanks to the OMH crew for thism one!!!

Capa (2778) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Black with a deep head. Roasty malts, sweet molasses, some oak, dark fruits, bitter chocolate. Flavor matches the aroma with the chocolate and dark fruits playing the biggest role. Medium bodied. Very tasty.

TimE (5100) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2008
Pitch black color, dark brown head. Slightly oak tinge, peaches, cherries, dark chocolate. Mouth is rather sweet with dark chocolate, hazelnuts and cherries. Moderately rich and intense. I just failed to see what oak aging this beer did. Hardly noticed any difference between this and the regular Imperial Stout. Still highly enjoyable, but give the price difference the regular imp stout is better value.
