Holmen2 (682) - NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Dark brown. No head. A bit of lambic in aroma. Tropical fruits, berries and canned pineapple in taste. Not much malt in taste. Long and warming aftertaste. More an old ale or barley wine than an imperial stout.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2013
You get a delicious honey sweetness straight off the bat with this one. Quite light for an Imperial Stout you expect it to be meatier, you also get a hint of woody pine nose

Tide (1674) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with bourbon, coffee, dark fruits, chocolate and oak. Bitter finish with coffee, bourbon and fruits. Very nice imperial stout, although a bit overpowered by bourbon aroma.

Frulertruler (107) - San Rafael, SPAIN - NOV 19, 2013
Botellas. Buen aroma café, licor y madera. En boca licorosa de principio a fin, predominando el alcohol sobre el resto de los sabores. Con final fuerte alcoholico

Jorn69 (822) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
@ Ölkväll och bryggning i Källna (15/11-13). Ekträssyrlig doft med söta toner. Mycket söt smak, ekträssyrlig, russin, körsbär?, aningen spritig. Medelfyllig, inte mycket till beska.

77ships (3586) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 33 cl. bottle split with Kraddel, courtesy of Kraddel. Bottled on 28/01/2013. Very dark, blackish pomegranate with almost no head, little sign of carb. Nose is mouldy, huge concentration of sugar, caramel, biscuit, incredibly sweet with some barrel with herbal tea in huge amounts,… Huge extremely sweet caramel, sugar, honey, intense sweet wood vanilla, lots of vanilla, taste is a bit disappointing but taste is incredible sweet syrup, pure vanilla, sweet tea with lots of sugar, sap, maple, pure good,… Very thick, almost boozy, little carb. Very impressive sweet goodness even if it is by no definition an RIS in any way & I am not even sure if the flavor profile is fully intentional but never the less the aftertaste on this one is divine even if this one is prob. not entirely intentional.
