TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
33 cl bottle. Dark brown with a smooth tan head. Nose is coffee, scotch, wood and chocolate. Medium body with a sharp tang and punchy alcohol. Taste is scotch, peat, tobacco, tar, licorice and unsweetened chocolate. Monster, roasty bitter with prominent whiskey. A bit rough but i keep thinking about it.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small brown head. Aroma: roasted, coffee, smoke, some sweat. Taste: chocolate, salty licorice, smoked meat, smoke, fruit, wood, semi-dry. I don’t get the whisky. Doesn’t feel very full-bodied. De Molen has brewed so many amazing imperial stouts, in comparison this feels a bit one-dimensional. Still a solid brew.

Black color. Mild but very nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, peat; iodine. Good body strength; good roasted malt flavor, cut by a slight sourness; the booziness from the barrel here is a bit more evident.
Good.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Jet black body, small light beige head. Nose is alcohol, wood, leather, licorice, hints of coffee and ashes. Smooth. Taste is leather, licorice, tar, alcohol, hints of coffee and wood with some sour notes of dark berries in the back. Soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. A nice imperial with a well-cloaked alcohol content, but which nevertheless somehow fails to reach the top rungs of my ladder.
