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 our Mes. Cheers mate, loved it. Very special in my eyes. I like Brewdog. Blacker than the deepest hole with a beige head. Loads of flavours and tastiness going on. Almost a liqour type smell meets Willy Wonka. You know the alcohol is there and it’s a serious drink but lovely yummy complex and balanced. A joy to have in my mouth.

Bottle at EBF. Thanks Maria. Pitch black with nearly no head. Roasted, vinous, round, sticky, smooth, coffee, wood & hints of smoke. Very nice & quite heavy!

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 Good god this is a strong beer. Tastes much stronger than similar strength beers like ABTs and quads. Dark pour, thick mouthfeel, I think there is some good stuff in there somewhere; sweet flavours, some spicy maybe and lots of malts. Shame the taste is swamped by the warm, cloying alcohol. Almost tastes like medicine!

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle. Thanks to Maria for sharing this one. Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of strong roasted malt, chocolate, mild coffee, berries and what could have been a hint of smoke maybe from the oak. Also mild sour notes of the cranberries and a hint of floral notes as well. Over the palate a mild hoppy feel can be picked up over the heavy malty base. Quite full bodied with an average carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering wood and strong malty finish.

TBone (11884) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2008
Bottled, Ølbaren (BB 11/2009)
Pitch black color, small expresso head. Coffee, dark malts, chocolate in the nose. Tar, oak barrel and smoke. Less alcoholic than 12+ could expect, but sticky beer with wineous palate. Long coal-alcoholic aftertaste. Very tasty. It is not a sauna beer.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle, 12%. Weak roasted aroma, faint hint of cream. Almost black colour. The flavour is very roasted, hint of smoke. Some tar. Not very balanced. Rough alcohol and salami aftertaste. Low carbonation, quite pleasant.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2008 (Bottled) Almost black with a very small, beige head. Strongly malty aroma with slight smokiness, and lots of salt. Salty-licoricey, dry and very malty, slightly burned flavor with black coffee, tar, and a spicy jasmine-cinnamon blend. Medium to full body with medium carbonation. Totally different from the one I had in Copenhagen - and in a really good way. A pretty good Impy! (Bottled, was 6-4-6-3-12=3.1) Almost black with a very small, beige head. Strongly smoky-peaty aroma. Very thick and tarry flavor with burned malt. Medium to full-bodied with no carbonation. Interesting, but too heavy for me.

Skinnyviking (6375) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing light brown head. Pitch black body. Coffee cocoa aroma with clear notes of the alcohol. Flavor of coffee cocoa and alcohol but also with a bit of liqourice and smoky notes. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste.
