czar (4364) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
2014 vintage shared by hoppypocket, thanks bro! pours murky very dark brown with a small light beige head offering some retention and lacing. intense bourbony wood and its vanilla component, coffee and cream perhaps, salty raisins, burnt nuts and burnt caramel, peppery booze, strong ashy presence. light carbonation, medium body - oily, assertive if not slightly harsh hot-ashy-resinous finish. should perhaps consider blending in non-ba churchill’s.

JulienHuxley (3046) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to FX. Black pour with thick brown head. Aroma is boozy, really roasty, winey notes, nutty aroma, not as powerful as many imperial stouts, but also seems more complex. Taste is sweet nutty flavors, chocolaty, roasty, light coffee notes, winey. Palate is full bodied with good carbonation. Nice is.

tom10101 (2760) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (22 oz). Vintage 2013. Shared by Fux, thanks! Pitch black with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is really winey (not sour though) and quite decadent because it smells like a dark chocolate and dark fruits cake with roasted malt/coffee, vanilla and light spiciness. Taste is also of a fruit cake with a nice winey presence and it’s also very similar to a fruitcake combined to a decadent brownies. There’s also notes of vanilla, hints of spiciness with a warming finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Mouthfeel is somewhat winey, but also oily. This is a really decadent RIS. Rich, complex and tasty. The balance isn’t bad all. Nice fruitiness.

77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2014
THX!!! to fux. 2013 Vintage. Pours an oily black with only some mocha bubbles on the side as a head. Nose is incredible, thick vanilla cake, brownies, chocolate chip cookies & cake, bourbon. Tastes like brownies, chocolate cake soaped in whiskey and rum, vanilla, very sweet, rum cake, palm sugar, melted milk chocolate, warming bourbon finish. Low carbonation, very oily. This is amazing, believe the hype.
