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.

sunevdj (3271) - 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 (4138) - 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 (10563) - 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 (10350) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
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.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle. Very black with minimal head. Aromas are molasses with earthy, smoky, woody notes. Floral with gin herb and spice notes. Dark chocolate with oak barrel and coffee. Flavours are rich bitter coffee with dark chocolate. Bitter and woody and hoppier than expected but with an initial brandy-like smoothness. Alcohol is strong but feels at home here. Very good.

Theis (13804) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle at home - shared with Mette. Black - small brown head. Burned, oak, vanilla, tyrkisk peber, salmiak, tobacco, tarmac, nice hoppy, sweetness, light candy sweetness, light spicy, dryness, light chocolate, light smokey. Lovely long hoppy/burned/tobacco/sweetness/salmiak finish.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 22, 2008
Botella. Pitch bælack colour with a rather short lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits and some chocolate. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good pleasant roasted maltiness with chocolate, coffee, light spice and liquour.

yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a small chocolate brown head. Aroma is initially fruity from the hops but also followed closely by a more roasted yet smooth malt note and light chocolate. Light to medium bodied - not as thick as expected. Fruity and medium sweet initial flavour followed by a complex mix of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. Reappearing fruity and hopp notes into a smooth finish with a little spice note. Very elegant and a different take on the oaked beer trends. Nice one.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
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.
