I tried the Oak Aged 40 year Cognac version at Portland International Beer Festival. I tried 13 beers there, the beers I tried averaged 3 tickets each. This is one was 5 tickets, one of only three that I would buy again, and the best tasting beer I have ever had! I read through the first page of reviews and agree with all the good things said. However, no one else has mentioned the obvious extreme quality of the Cognac flavor. Perhaps I have tried a very rare version!

Bottle shared with Armando629. Csakajosor.hu Poured black as hell, as the name would suggests. Brown, heavy, lacing foam that already suggests what’s coming ahead. Unbelievably complex aroma, with most dominant being coffee, chocolate, irish whisky, ash, earth, molasses, roasted malts, and hops. Dense, syrupy, oily body that is seriously heavy in the glass. Hoppy bitterness and roasted, burnt aftertaste that stays, mellows out with a bit of vanilla aftertaste. Alcohol is present, and it should be. Imperial stout at its best, a masterpiece!

Bottle, 33cl, Utobeer, number 180. Screw it. This is AWESOME. Astonishing world class lacing, just pefect white-cream texture, opaque black colour, grounded coffee, expensive dark chocolate, really fantasticly blended together, lovely whack of cream and vanilla to the mix, outstanding bitterness, stunningly well balanced, gorgeous roasted malts’ finish, low carbonation, oily and just an utterly WORLD CLASS BEER. MENNO YOU ARE AWESOME!

The original and possibly the best. Thick, full bodied with coffee and chocolate maltiness. Rich and flavorful. Tried this with Paul in A’dam in July, 2010.

Pours dark black, hardly any foam. Taste is very roasty, very bitter. Like dark pure roasted chocolate, with special hops.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 An almost black colored beer, with a thick dark beige foamed head. It stays for awhile. It leaves a lace on the glass. An incredible aroma of burned/roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and nuts. The taste starts with burned malts, coffee combined with pure chocolate. There are fruits like, prune, date and raisins. Some sweet in the back. As the temperature is rising, there are aromas and tastes of liquorice. This gives a warm feeling. The aftertaste is a little dry roasted. A great beer.

How can someone rate this beer? Besides the words amazing and perfect, there is nothing else that can be said. Drunk it from a 33ml bottle (the 75ml one, was kept for aging. The chocolate aromas and taste were amazing, while the after taste brings some coffee-ishness up. I loved it. Next time, i will drink it while eating a piece of chocolate cake.

I have not drunk many imperial stouts but this is delicious! I love dark chocolate and coffee aromas and tastes and this has it all! The alcohol is dominant, not hidden, but in this case I don’t mind that at all. Thanks a lot Imrich for this great beer you shred with us!

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 Rating 2500. Bottled at NoiZe 30th birthday party. Pitch black color. Good aroma of coffee, dark malt, good quality. Bitter and dry taste, roasted malts. Bitter and dry palate. Again good dutch stuff.
