PriorL (2423) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 18cl bottle at home. 3 year old bottle. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: not really pitch black like other Imperial Stouts, but nice black appearance, rather unstable mocha head. Nose: alcohol comes in popping immediately, lots of chocolate, lots of wood, little tart, red fruits, some vanilla, the alcohol presumably bourbon. Taste: bourbon is clear now, chocolate, rather sugary, somewhat sticky all around your mouth, some red fruits noticeable, alcohol warming feeling when drinking, even after a few minutes in your mouth! Amazing beer, I hope they remake it in time!

SlackerMads (1896) - DENMARK - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with a small good lacing beige head. Aroma is vinous, vanilla, toffee, light cheese, butter, light coffee, cocoa, dark roasted malt. The barrel notes are definitely present but well balanced and complements each other. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, oily/syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Soft sweet finish with a bit of roasted malt and warming alcohol.

Bottle. Pours dark red brown with a almost no head. Aroma is roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, oak, coconut, red berries, vanilla. The barrel influence is noticeable but nicely balanced. Taste is near heavy sweet, medium bitter with a delicious tart note. Body is medium+, texture is thick oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet, roasted and plainly delicious. Not overpowering in any way.

180ml bottle (Belgobaren, Stockholm) - freebie from the owner of the whole Monks Cafe chain - wow thanks! (8:4+:8:4+:16+=4.0+++)
Sweet vanilla and chocolate cakey aroma, a touch of alcohol in places. Black, brief head. Smooth palate, almost slick, but luscious. Gentle tingle of burntness and hops crispens it up. Chocolatey cakey body, a little sweet. Creamy butter adds to the chocolate cake in the late finish. A super-mellow rich sipper. World class.

Steasy66 (1026) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Tiny bottle at Mikkeller. Not quite black, brown head. Dark fruit, bourbon, huge marshmallow aromas. Flavors of plum, date, oak, candy sugar, coffee, and chocolate. Crisp carb and surprisingly thin. Overall, very good beer, glad I got to try it.

Opaque very dark brown beer, little tan head. Slightly sour coca cola nose. Soft semi dry palate. Pleasantly sour dark malt that isn’t bitter or dry. Coca cola sourishness contrasted with lacto sweetness.Finishes semi dry with a whisper of nuts. Nice!
