UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Massive massive aroma of vinegar, ply wood, oak, cognac, some whisky and also some attic funk. At first its quite acidic, but then a bomb hits you, PERFECT balance, the cognac shines but it balances so well with the beer. This is just amazing. Long long finish. A beer that is hard to make without going over the top. Jesus!! Best imperial stout I have had! Thanks Martinus!!

Merci à Ian pour la bouteille. Effluves de cognac très puissantes au premier nez; les arômes de café, de chocolat et de cerises noires y sont également présentes, mais toujours en retrait de l’alcool. Un léger boisé s’y dégage également. Un nez puissant et corsé. Le visuel est noir, opaque, avec une petite mousse brune assez dense qui fuit rapidement. Parfaitement dans le style. L’attaque est tout en sucre avec du caramel (toffee), de la mélasse et du chocolat. Douceur et chaleur sont ici les qualificatifs principaux. La finale est tout en amertume de torréfaction. Son équilibre est parfait et sa texture visqueuse comme de l’huile. Ses sucres sont complexes avec des notes de chocolat au lait, de vanille, de bonbon et de mélasse. Le tout enrobé dans des effluves de cognac. Un vrai délice. Une grande impériale stout.

allmyvinyl (3624) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours deep dark brown, thin tan head. Dark chocolate, booze, some apples. Taste has dark sugar, more booze burn, but a chocolatey creaminess that balances out. Long bitter chocolate finish. Nice.

McNeillR (1240) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Ruby tinged dark brown, crubbed brown ring head. Smooth sticky toffee apple’d choc cake. Toasty leather shoelace. Lush dark spicy kick, sticky Cat boot stomp on your chest cough of a burny malt. Fading clean spicy sweetness. Rich, richy rich with a bombing sweet tinge. Not sticky but dense. Delicious. Cheers Meno, Cheers Craig...

olio (6277) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
33 cl bottle. Vertical tasting with 666-ish.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Dry dark roasty malts on the nose, oat, rye, licorice, wood. Dry malty flavor, lots of sweet chocolate, cognac and faint licorice. Dry and refined. Slightly better compared to 666-ish.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of rich nutty maltiness, bread, dark chocolate and muffin. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, syrup, chocolate, some mud cake and creamy vanilla notes. Full bodied and creamy, soft, roasty finish. Sweet but rich and balanced.

laiti (5755) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
33 cl bottle @ tiong, bottle #1689
Vertical with 666-ish
Aroma is more ’fresh’ and sweet than 666-ish. Also less stale. It has ripe apples, some smoky tones and licorice. Also strong oaty notes. Flavour has oat, cognag, ripe apples, and licorice. Feels a bit old and moldy. Not bad still, more mellow and less aggressive than 666.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Specialty version of the renowned Hel & Verdoemenis, wood-aged. Sticky beige head, black colour; complex, powerful and appealing aroma of coffee, fondant, toasted bread, dried plums, cognac, caramel; thick malty taste, chocolatey, soft carbonation, strong and assertive roasted bitterness, very mouth-filling, oily, with warming, brandy-like alcohol in the finish that never becomes disturbing. Very big, very well-balanced, very exciting Molen beer.

brystmar (1276) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle of b3 thanks to kraddel. Pitch black pour sprouts tan head, leaves some lace on my glass.

Aroma of caramel, deeply roasted malts, burnt sugars, booze, black licorice. Smooth and creamy body delivers the deliciousness to my palate. Decadent; boozy warmth massages my throat as I swallow. Really good.

rxeight (1365) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
12oz bottle, another thanks to Erik, my euro hookup. Deep dark brown. Subtile cognac aroma. Taste is cognac, dry oak, euro malt. Very low sweetness. Dry finish. Smooth with no heat. Quite good, although not sure if I’d put it in the top 100.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours black like oil with tan head, but not much. Wood (oak?), cognac, chocolate, and some roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet and malty.
