(Bottle, #1236/1560) Pitch black colour with huge, foamy, fairly brief, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of liquorice, vanilla, strong black coffee, oak wood, dark fruit and hints of ashes. Slightly vinous. Roasted, malty, slightly vinous taste with liquorice, dark chocolate, sweet espresso, dark fruit and ashes. Vinous finish with oak wood, vanilla and a solid coffee bitterness well integrated with the rest of the flavours. Full body, fairly sweet with balanced hints of warming alcohol. Excellent wood ageing where the wood is always present but never dominant. Impressive and absolutely lovely.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours utterly, completely black with a firm, staying, lovely, creamy, brown head. Lovely looks for an Imperial Stout. Aroma is mildly vinious, lots of oak, roasted malts, light astringency. Dark chocolate edge. Low carbonation, light and fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of vanilla, mild roasted malts, dark chocolate. Quite sweet with the vanilla dominating, but with a firm malty bitterness with hints of dry cocoa-powder at the end. Mildly warming viniousness. Lovely.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2010
(Bottled) Roasted-burned coffee, licorice, oak, whisky. Way too burned flavor for the syrupy sweetness to rescue. Whisky cask is clearly present with all its tannins. With an impy this burned, though, the tannins just take the burnedness into a higher level. Not balanced or very enjoyable for an 12.5% impy, IMO - but I didn’t love the Struise Black Jack, either. 5557

Vaiz (3533) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, port, whisky and some slight ashy notes. Flavor is ashy, very roasted bitter, some bready yeast, slightly sweet caramel malts and some tobacco. Complex and slightly harsh. Creamy texture, very full body and low carbonation. Decent brew.

PotjeBier (1762) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2010
18 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours pitch black with little head. Aroma’s of wood, vanilla, whisky, smoke, soysauce, sweet malt, roast and alcohol. Taste is sweet ’n’ bitterish, roasted, with a hints of wood, whisky. Burning mouth (& throat-) feel, a bit too much for my liking. Roast and ash with some bitterness in the finish. Good, but could have done with a little less acolhol imho.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in an opaque black colour with small disappearing tan-coloured head. Rich aroma of wood, whiskey, nuts, raisins, figs, black chocolate and roasted malts. Full-bodied with strong notes of wood, lack pepper, whiskey, burnt malts, black chocolate and white pepper. Long roasted finish of wood, white pepper, figs and black chocolate. Really intense and tasty!
