abemorsten (2900) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle kindly shared by Holmen2. Clear mahogany colored body with a loght brown rim. Fruity funky bourbon nose. Vanilla and heavy sweet bourbon flavors. Full bodied. Alco warm. Pretty good. I’d think more in the line of barley wine or old ale than imperial stout as it’s styled at the rating moment on ratebeer.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Shared 330 ml bottle, at local tasting. ABV is 10.6%, EBU 46. Dark brown to ruby colour, minimal head. Aroma of red wine, berries, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Minimal carbonation. Very sweet flavour, vinous notes, raisins, molasses and bourbon / oak. This is a barleywine, not an imperial stout.

Holmen1 (2763) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Flaske på RB-treff på Vistenes: null skum, og lys for stilarten. Snev av lambicsurhet i aroma. Tiltalende smak med mørke bær. Men selv om dette ikke har noe med imperial stout å gjøre (Sigmund mener det er en barley wine) er det en god øl som egner seg til konsum i små glass.

gunnar (5659) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours deep ruby with a small tanned head. Aroma is light funky, light honeyish sweetness. Taste is light sweet, wood and barrel, vanilla and cocoa, lots of bourbon, until the lingering sweet bourbon end.

Holmen2 (1221) - 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

allmyvinyl (4220) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours dark brown with little to no head. Aromas are roasted sugars, touch funky. Taste is tart bitter. Finishes clean. Good.

BenH (2493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with no head. Aroma of vinegar and spicy, funky. Tasye is chocplatey, woody, little funky. Thin, bitter and tart. Nice

Tide (1877) - 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.
