Bottle 1529 thanks to bosse, a world class trader.
A: Pours a nice dark black hue. Nice tan head. Lite retention with some spotty lace.
S: Aromas of whiskey, oak, vanilla, and char. Wonderful roast hides beneath with notes of chocolate and coffee.
T: Tasty brew no doubt. Wonderful barrel aged beers, whiskey and vanilla really stand out. Roasted malts, chocolate, and astringent coffee. A real big beer for sure. Not the most drinkable, but a real tasty sipper.
M: On the fuller side of medium, light carbonation, big beer that is a real treat.
D: Very high sippability.

Finally entering some old notes...
bottle #518 at Stockholm Beer and Whisky fest, September 2009. Pours deep brown with a bit of a reddish hue, taped with a small tan head. Aroma begins with roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with whiskey in the background and gradually becoming more apparent. Whisky notes, especially alcohol, dominate the palate; there is some chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and oak in the background, but the barrel overwhelms the base beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this from tap in Cafe In de Wildeman and again on Borefts Beer Festival. A heavy hitter in both taste looks and alcohol. The first time I had this it was after drinking a pretty strong tasting beer by Schelde Brouwerij, and still Black Jack came in so strong it practically swept the other taste away. It has little head and pours almost jet black. The taste combines smokey, chocolaty, fresh and bitter in a way only a good imperial stout can. It also carries a strong wooden adstringent note. Don’t drink this if you want to taste anything else that is softer on the same evening, but definitely have one if you can.

Thanx Menno for letting us taste this one.
At De Molen at 1. BBF.
Comes in neat small bottles that just fitts the a glass. Fantastic to make heavy beers come in bottles like this. All numbered bottles - This one #1390/1560
The pout is black as the name topped with a impressive dark brown head. Perfect. The nose reminds me of Irish coffee - The alcohol notes blended with coffee, brown sugar and cream. Besides that there is som cinnamon, tobacco, bitter english laqurice and some pineapple(?).
The taste is dominated of chocolate and cacao flavours topped with some vanilla with a heavy alcohol-profile. Actually it takes off with some mild sour notes. Its round but somehow very uncomplex with the cacao as the all dominating father figure. The palate is full bodyed and thick with a tinckly feeling from the alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Pours black with a few bubbles around the edges. Lots of liquorice on the nose with some spirit and woodiness noted also. Tastes good, roasty with some whisky detected but a bit like the Mikkeller Speyside in that some of the Imperial stouts richness seems to have leeched out as a result of the cask aging.

Bottle #095 @SBWF 2009
Pitch black color, small brown head. Aroma of wood, smoke, whisky and licorice. Licorice, roasted malts, some sweetish whisky. Kind of De Molen house flavor in it. Very full-bodied. Does not show alcohol much.
