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.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Raisins, dark pitted fruit, and roasted malts with a hint of alcohol comprise the aroma. A inky black pour with a small, rapidly dissipating khaki head and minimal to no lacing. The taste is slightly sweet. Dark roasted malts, raisins, coffee bitterness, caramel, brown sugar, sweet fruit with wood notes. The finish and aftertaaste, while sweet, have some pepper and alcohol flavors present. Full body and mild carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, a well crafted beer with an extremely complex flavor profile. It tastes like a sweet port. Would be great with blue cheese!

kappldav123 (5158) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Deep black in the glass, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts quite sweet and malty, more and more dry. Finish less sweet, some earthy notes. Interesting beer.

330ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Batch 001 (or 061?), BBE 31/11/09 Pours pitch black with a tiny bubbly brown head. Aroma of sweet roasty malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, wood, ash and oaky notes. Taste is sweetish, roasty, heavy and a bit oxidized with notes of dark chocolate, wood and oak. Finish is sweet, sticky and caramely with notes of oak, dark chocolate and some aged notes. Okay, but feels like it’s already past it’s prime.

Beer4000 (4607) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
330 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Black body with a small and fast disappearing brown head. Aroma has dark malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, coffee, chocolate, nice bitterness and warming alcohol. Fine body and long aftertaste. A bit rough and sweet, but nice and a lot smoother than Tokyo*

Bamsen78 (3403) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt with pronounced caramellish and boozy notes. Sugary flavour, enriched by scarse caramel notes. Excessivley sweety, amd yet unable to erase the boozy feeling. An astounding defeat for BrewDog. I’m sorry. Go back to the basics.

Doodler (313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from the cellar. Dark brownish black body with a minimal tan head. Nose of cherries, apple brandy and dark malts. The flavor is filled with brown sugar and alcohol, tingly bubbles of caramel and plums. Finishes wih an apple brandy & chocolate syrup combo. Wow. Not like the 18 percenter but still very tasty stuff....

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
330 mL bottle courtesy of Chris served in a stem glass alongside Black Tokyo Horizon and its other constituent beers. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a trace amount of fine lace. The nose has big, syrupy molasses with alcohol, herbs, a touch of anise and some hops. The flavour is huge sweet brown sugar and honey with cranberry, a touch of oak and some herbs. The finish is long, hugely sweet with a touch of pepper. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great herbal-spicy-roasty imperial stout. It is very smooth and well constructed, but a bit too sweet for my taste. 2013-01-25

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated on 07.08.2009<br/< Aroma is sweetish with licorice, roasted notes, malt and hints of coffee. Flavour has licorice, well roasted malt, some coffee, hints of herbs and spices. Sticky palate. A bit too sweet but rather good still.
