COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of specialty malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry hopped it with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully aging the beer on French toasted oak chips.

Bottle from Brewer. Very complex beer. Great balance of caramel malts, chocolate and oak character. With a strong belnd of liquoirice and bittering hop. Some sour tones and great alcohol finish. Another corker from Martin and James. Yum yum diddy dum.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2008
Pitch black with a small brown head. Looks very oily. Aroma has allot of character, caramell, vanilla, fruit, dark chocolate and more, all in serious harmony. Extremely smooth bodied and oily. Slides down too easily with no trace of the high alcohol. Very complex, smooth, harmonic imperial stout with many layers of taste, chocolate, oak, fruit, burnt wood, ashes, caramell and some hops in the aftertaste. My only minus is that it’s slightly too drinkable, I prefer alittle bit more resistance in my imperial stouts. 33cl bottle bought at Ölbutikken.

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinnens Verden, Odense.
Pours utterly and completely black with a thin rim of brown creamy foam. Soft and elegant aroma. Lots of chocolate, raisins, apples, roasted malts - and lots of liquorice. Good notes of vanilla, oak and a flowry touch. Low carbonation, wonderful, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, but the 12 % is nowhere to be found. Incredibly drinkable. Lots of chocolate again, some cocoa, good, lightly tart oak and plums. Some sweetness with vanilla and malts. A long, dry bitterness with roasted malts and good, heavy hoppiness. Very nice!

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Thanks to Fonefan for sharing and thanks to Cgarvieuk for donating an additional bottle. It’s pitch black with a brown, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, light wood and flower. The mouthfeel is oily. The flavour has a light sweetness and a roasted bitterness, notes of chocolate, dark fruits, light wood, caramel, licorice and the overall impression is both smooth and powerful and it’s scaringly easy to drink. It ends with notes of berries and a nice, dry bitterness.

Rune (9303) - Tromsř, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2008
Shared with Skinnyviking after purchasing a 330ml bottle at Řlbutikken, Copenhagen. Dark-black body under a brownish layer. Roasted, almost burnt, spicy malts. Dark caramel leading to a confectionary smooth flavour. Rounded palate and warming alcohol (10.09.2008).

sunevdj (3479) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle. The bottle opened without a sound. Pours an opaque black with only hints of a tanned head. Smells of fruits and alcohol. Sweet. Aromas of roasted malts, very dark chocolate and some alcohol. Also some oak and wood, especially as the beer ages in the glass. Full bodied. Carbonation is down to an unconfirmed rumour. Roasted finish with a nice alcohol warming finish. If this one had been carbonated just a bit, it would have been very good.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2008
This rarity was shared by xmarcnolanx (who enjoyed it far more than me). Pours black with a dark brownish orange head. The aroma has milky malt with some soy sauce. Medium / thick body that gets thinner on the finish and has subdued carbonation. The flavor has roasty malt, lots of abv and light oakiness. The finish has some soy, heavily roasted malt and quite a bit of burn. There is lots of burnt wood taste as well. I didn’t notice any cranberries or jasmine. I know many seem to love this, but it’s just not for me.

bierkoning (11110) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle, batch # 1 from Cgarvieu. Thanks! Opague, hardly any head. Chocolate, licorice, jasmine, oak and red berries in the aroma. Salty, malty, roasty flavor with licrice, oak, vanilla. flowers and berries. Sweet but complex. Full bodied. Some roasty bitterness. A bit too perfumed for my taste, but still a very good beer.

KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Black with tiny beige head. Somewhat sweet aroma with loads of roasted malt, oak, smoke and coffee notes. Flavour has roasted malt, fried ham, oad and liquerice. Strange imperial stout.

Bottle (330ml). Shared by ... Mes_and_Sim!!. Deep murky brown pour, average head. Deep dry roast aroma, weirdly and pungently floral, with brazil nutshell bitterness. (my notes begin to thin out here - sorry) - Taste - slightly oily, creamy - bitter! Smooth mouthfeel, yummm.
