Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 (Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a small, nougat colored head. The aroma holds light burned roast/coffee/dark chocolate/cocoa and woodsy/alcohol-ish/fruity/fudgey whisky. Touch of hops. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic. Notes of roast, whisky, light fruits, light nuts and bitter hops. The mouthfeel round and tart with a light carbonation. Roast, aggressive hops and whisky on the finish. Medium bodied.

wlajwl (4927) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Strong infusion of peat/scotch/scotch ale in aroma and flavor. Pretty good, the sweetness wasn’t overpowering and the scotch elements complemented the stout pretty well.

oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2012
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to black. Thick fluid, no head. Aroma is coffee, slight whisky sweetness, some roasted malts, liquorice and ashes. Flavour is quite similar with an overwhelmingly strong sweetness to it. Flavour also has quite a stinging alcohol feel to it. Feels rather different from the Hel & Verdoemenis normal one (as I remember it).

Dark opaque brown color, small brown head. Cold coffee, milk sugary, toasted malty, hints of vanilla. Full-bodied. Strong whisky flavor, vanilla, coffee, black burned malts. Strong Scotch presence.

markwise (4898) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Thanks to Mark from the Atlanta crew for sharing this one around. Pours an obsidian black with a small dark tan head. Nose is peaty whiskey, roasted malts, slight booze, and a a bit of smoke. Flavor is similar with the peat not as dominant as I thought it would be, but still very noticeable. Flavor also had elements of licorice, roasted malts, and smoke. Nice, enjoyable imperial stout. Medium to full in body with the De Molen stout smooth mouthfeel and lingering roasty smoke.

Hel & Verdoemenis tried three different versions tonight. Macallan was the best and that was a little surprising. 666 was more neutral than I thought and the regular version is just good. This one has the best stuff of the regular H&L and brings in the whisky too. Pretty good stuff.

Borefts Beer Festival 3. Opaque black beer, tidy pale tan head. Light palate. Semi sweet oaky malt with a trace of vanilla - not US style though - just a light touch. Mild whisky brings up the rear - brings more flavour than spirity presence. Really nicely joined up. Lovely.
