Benzai (11825) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2011
Color is very dark black, opague. Very strong alcohol smell. Taste: coffee, alcohol present but good. Oily texture, yet somehow smooth as well. Soft aftertaste and finish.

Bottle. Clear dark brown color with a small, frothy off-white head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, coffee, light alcohol, dried fruit notes. Flavour is sweet and bitter with a long duration, alcohol and moderate chocolate malt. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2011
Draft at Mikkeller Bar Copenhagen. Pours a black colored beer with a small brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth again coffee, chocolate, licorice. A lot of alcohol coming through making it slichtly unbalanced.

VsXsV (3640) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2011
18 cl bottle from Systembolaget. From batch bottled 110214, bottle 93 out of 360. Black liquid with minimal brown head that dissipates in seconds. Some nice lacing. Smells of wood/oak, bourbon, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and some caramel. Very elegant. Taste is medium sweet with medium to high bitterness (no less than 99.9 IBUs) with lots of wonderful, chocolatey and coffeish notes. The bourbon ageing is well noticed but absolutely not overpowering. Taste is also very elegant and balanced. Some alcoholic burn, but that’s expected. Full bodied with little carbonation and smooth, sticky mouthfeel. Overall, stunning imp stout with great balance and elegance.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beautiful dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and oak. Flavour of roasted malts, oak, bourbon, hops and smooth caramel. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, roasty, caramel-like finish where the bourbon barrel feels slightly stinging. Yet another tasty brew from De Molen.

Kristall-König (2606) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Kleine 180 Milliliter-Flasche mit der Seriennummer 1000! Jubel! Im Geruch malzig, fruchtig, eindeutig süß. Aromen von Orange, Holz und Likör. Antrunk süß, orangig, malzbetont. Danach malzschokoladig, rauchig und schon sehr alkoholisch unterwandert. Dabei weiterhin süß. Abgangs enorm dicht toffee-nougatartig und alkoholisch brennend. Ein Schwergewicht von einem Imperial Stout. Gewaltige Aromen. Leider, vor allem im Abgang, sehr spritig. Legt man die 12 Prozent Alkoholgehalt zu Grunde, verwundert das nicht und mag auch noch passend sein. Gut allemale, für mich schrammt das Bier aber an einer Spitzenwertung vorbei.Test vom 17.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 28, 2011
’na botta micidiale! Molto zuccherosa, più cioccolato che caffè, il tocco di botte e alcolico si sente solo nel finale. Una bella birretta beverina per cominciare...

Bottle shared by TurdFurgison recently served side by side by side with the base beer and Wild Turkey versions, quite a cool thing to do. This was my second favorite although it was close for me for first place. Beer is black with almost no head, lower carbonation than the parent beer and no lacing to speak of. The nose is nicer than the original too. Sweeter, less roasty, mostly a clean, smooth, chocolate, mildly vanillic, oakiness to it. More yeast character in this version too. This one was balanced and mild overall, the creaminess of the mouthfeel was the most incredible thing about it. The barrel aging character seemed a bit muted to me though. Something about this one, I wasn’t expecting them to be "in my face" but a little more aggressive wouldn’t have been a bad thing. I want to taste the barrel more is what I’m saying and I missed out slightly here. This is why it came in second for me. Serving type: bottle

18cl bottle at home. Pours black with small beige head that soon disappears. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some caramel. Thick mouthfeel with flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Slight alcohol burn after, but all round smooth and full bodied. Fantastic beer!
