4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 vintage. Brown pour, black in the glass with a medium to small tan head. The first thing I notice in the aroma is strong vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate notes. There is also some dark fruit, molasses, and anise notes in the background, with some added roast as it warms. The flavor starts out with sweet chocolate and brown sugar notes, then slowly fades to mellow bourbon barrel and chocolate, with a touch of raisin. The mouthfeel is very creamy and hides the alcohol well until the warm finish.

Rating #1610 - 24.04.2015 - On tap @underground_yeg. Dark, jet black pour. Aroma is toasted cereal, earth, coffee grounds. Palate is a sweet mix of alcohol warmth, chocolate, coffee, and earth. Fantastic.

Wonderful stuff. In particular, this is a thick and creamy stout that surpasses most that use the title imperial. The head lingers pretty much forever, and the mouthfeel is almost syrupy. It is slightly sweet for my taste.

@ Basunen 16-1-9: Label: whiskey barrel. Trevlig fyllig doft med tydliga whiskey (bourbon) toner. Smaken är len och rätt söt. Toner av lakrits och choklad. Gott.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 2011, courtesy of plovmand. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark fruit with notes of whiskey; oak, tar, smoke. The flavours starts very sweet but finish slightly bitter. Lingering roasted taste. The body is full and the texture is oily. Soft carbonation. A nice warmth of alcohol. Nice one...

Very nice flavor with unique character. You don't notice the alcohol content so it goes down smooth. Good malt character and not hoppy or bitter.
