Draught at Brasserie 4:20, Roma. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Huge aroma of chocolate, whisky, roast, dark fruits and caramel. The flavour carries the same. Noticeable alcohol warmth showing through. Dark bitter chocolate finish. Very well rounded and nice complexity. Awesome beer - one to sip and savour.

thanks to tpd975 thru Bosse for sharing this little gem. bottle #1529/1560. pours dark brown, thin mocha head, sticky golden lacing. aroma, small bottle but packs a nice boozy scent-punch. chocolate malts, coffee goodness, grainy and notes of whiskey. flavors, grainy, thick chocolate malts and boozy-whiskey mouthfeel, touch of caramel, dry, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs. Nicely done, not the most unique Imp. Stout out there, but the 18cl is the right bottle and again, you might want to share this one.

Imperial stout aged on Swedish Mackmyra Elegant whisky casks, brewed for Belgobaren, Stockholm. OG 1110, EG 1032, EBC 383, 1560 bottles of 18cl produced. 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.

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.
