Extremely pleasant to drink. Not to much aroma, but that might be related to a bit cold serving temperature. Otherwise a fantastic beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
330 mL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass alongside its constituent beers. Pours black with a tiny tan head that fades to almost nothing, leaving a tiny amount of lace. The nose is a complex blend of chocolate, roasted malts and molasses along with herbs, a touch of earth and hops. The flavour is a beautiful blend of the three base beers, with molasses, herbs, anise, earth and a touch of coffee. The finish is long, peppery, herbal and roasty. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an amazing complex brew that is harmonic while retaining distinct elements of the three base beers. Beautiful! 2013-01-25

Vestergaard (477) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2013
Black beer - no head. As in: No head. looks like tar. Oily thick lacing, but no head what so ever. Strong aroma of chocolate, booze and licorice. Little smoked too. Sweet notes of blackcurrant paired with bitter coffee and chocolate. The licorice is present as well, but not as much as in the aroma. It feels like the strong effect from the alcohol is replacing the CO2, but perhaps it’s still a little too flat. Tastes great though!

LoFi (1627) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, and a dark brown head that disappears instantly. Aroma: roasted, licorice, dark chocolate, creamy, sticky toffee. Taste: chocolate liqueur, licorice, boozy, syrup, coffee, toffee, something else I can’t exactly pinpoint but recognize from some other high ABV stouts like Dark Horizon 3 and Tokyo* (I described it as red onions in DH3, and maybe it’s something like that). Full bodied. This is too sweet really, but still pretty nice.

Pyrmir (3631) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2013
330 ml bottle, at a Brewdog tasting summer 2012. Pitch black with little head. Aroma is very complex and sweet, leather, coffee, alcohol are just some of the notes sound. Taste is very very sweet, dark sugars, syrup, complex malt flavors. Full body.

JohnRMurdoch (3455) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2013
330ml bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Oily black with a thick texture & beige foamy head. Strong spicy alcohol malt aroma. Strong sickly sweet spicy treacle alcohol flavour. Creamy texture. Not my sort of beer.

wheresthepath (1649) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
[330ml bottle, gift from my lovely wife - thank you!] Pours black with brown hints and a dark brown head. Big dark chocolate aroma. Chocolate, plums, port and leather in the taste with a growing roasted malt bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent stuff, although somehow lacked a really big "wow" factor to take it into the big league.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - DEC 12, 2012
What a beer..next to the Tokyo by itself) this killed it in all areas. Complex and well integrated, I think this rightfully shouldn’t be considered a blend, but a rich, wholesome Impy with a ton of depth and balls to match. Big nose jumps out of the glass. Too many impy stout flavours to list, but the it has to be said the alcohol is really well hidden.
