nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, oak, chocolate, vanilla and whiskey. The roasted malt dominates the flavour and well balanced with the sweetness of the vanilla, whiskey and chocolate that also comes through. Smooth and creamy on the palate. A roasted and bitter finish. Another good beer from these guys.

jazzmaster (22) - DENMARK - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle. Black with brown dissapearing head. very low carbonation. Nice aroma of vanilla and toffee and a little whiskey. Flavour is very sweet with almost too much toffee and some vanilla. Ok beer, but too much toffee. Good for desserts maybe

wyzzywyz22 (2000) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle, Rainhall Drinks Co, Barnoldswick. Super dark mahogany tinged brown with a beige head that dissipated to nothing. Aroma was roasted malt, vanilla, wood and whiskey. Much of the same in the flavour which was sticky sweet and with pretty well masked alcohol. Dryish , woody finish. All in all a tasty drop.

downender (6446) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2009
Bottle from Corks, Bristol. Near black with a hint of red and a big tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, large amounts of vanilla and some toffee. Flavour began with some sweetness, a hint of peaty whisky, more vanilla and a warming alcohol finish. A different, Scottish take on an imperial stout, which proved enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled, BB Dec 3, 2008. Poured medium-deep brown with a short, looser cap of tan head. The aroma picked up moderately roasted dark chocolates with lesser coffee accented by vanilla and sweet whiskey.. sweet and sticky overall. The flavor was semi-sweet with a malty complexion of chocolate, coffee, and caramel notes paired fairly well with vanilla and whiskey on the edges.. spicy and warm without an overt alcohol presence.. the barrel increased with warmth. Medium-bodied and increasingly warm and bitter as it progressed.. low carbonation.. solidly done.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Clear ruby-brown pour, average frothy lasting tan head. Sweet aroma redolent with gentle Lowland character, slightly burnt biscuity malt - damned thing actually smells smooth. The taste is very sweet, somewhat burnt, but a wonderful beer/whiskey blend - slick, light, astringent, with a sweet woody somewhat alcoholic finish - a fantastic beer.

Furseth (1971) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle: Black colour, with a creamy head. Aroma of lots of malts,raisins, dust,vanilla,cocos,and alcy nose in the end. Flavor is almost the same, lots of malts and vanilla. Big body, long smokey,raisins finish. Complex beer. Nice

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a small bubbly head with limited retention and no lacing. Aroma is a mix between some barley malt with some fine whiskey notes but not as much peat as in the Islay stout. Taste is also a very well balance mix between some barley and roasted notes with some fine whiskey notes though direct alcohol was noticeable. Very well done but I prefer when more peat is noticeable.
