hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle... Pours new-moon black with no head. The aroma is an intense, fiery swirl of fudge, chocolate crème, espresso & ethanol. Full-bodied and oily with soft carbonation. The intense, sweet flavor is constructed with espresso, light molasses and dark chocolate mocha. Finishes nourishing, bittersweet and boozy. A little rough around the edges, but otherwise quite nice. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Shared bottle at Grünerløkka mat- og mikrobryggfestival. Pours pitch black with a minimal beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, fruits and coffee. Pretty intense aromas, but well balanced. Alcohol is noticable, but pretty well integrated. Full body. Very chocolaty and quite sweet with a slightly dry and bitter finish. Delicious Imperial Stout!

fletchfighters (1077) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2012
A-- Poured black, syrupy black. Just a bit of red ruby on the sides of the glass and a very short lived film that quickly vacated the glass. Mostly chocolate syrup looking and a good layer of oil that covered the glass. Fair amount of alcohol legs. S-- Sweet nose. Char and ash to start but changed to port, date, chocolate and dark fruits. Mostly dark cherry. Alcohol is well hidden for the size of the beer. Honestly was surprised. T-- Syrupy, thick and sweet. Mostly reminded me of a port. Decent amount of chocolate and roast malts to carry this pretty well. Other notes were molasses and some toffee. M-- Rich, syrupy, and oily. Once again the alcohol is quite well hidden. Get more of the Brewdog part of the beer than anything else. Very little char and ash and a lot of dark fruits and chocolate. Little carbonation but it worked well. O-- Slow, slow sipper. Shared the bottle 4 ways and that was prefect. Unsure how could do a 330 alone or even attempt to with all the sweetness to this. Still get enough of the base beer to like it. Good long term cellaring prospects for this.

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Khioskh. Black beverage, rapidly disappearing head. Molasses, coffee, a hint of the alcohol snapping at your nose. A shipload of sweet malt, burned sugar, smaoke and oak. Incredibly rich.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle. Thick black in appearance, no head. Strong alcohol aroma with coffee, tar, brandy? Sweet taste, roasty with chocolate, good bitterness, very little alcohol taste for being this strong. Very nice result of three extreme beers

NosirIwont (1962) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a diminishing brown head. Aroma is coffee at first, slightly tart and with notes of cream and chocolate. Alcohol deep down. As it warms, dark fruit notes appear and gives it a port wine feel. Flavour is sugary and fat with dark fruits, heavy and with an alcohol burn; again port wine. The initial flavour contines in the finish and end with a lingering grassy note in addition to the other notes. Overall a very good, if somehwat heavy beer, well-balanced considering the high alcohol percentage. 24.07.12.
