neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
2010 vintage. 25 cL bottle courtesy of Chris served next to the base, Bunnahabhain barrel and 666 versions. Pours deep oily black with a few bubbles but no head. The nose has big notes of molasses, vanilla and oak, along with chocolate, tobacco and roasted malts. The flavour is quite sweet with big chocolate and vanilla combined with oak, bourbon, molasses and tobacco. The finish is long and roasty with vanilla and bourbon. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky smooth texture and no carbonation. Overall, wow, this is a great barrel-aged imperial stout. It is incredibly complex, appropriate for fireplace sipping on a cold winter’s night. 2014-03-29

Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Fest. Pours black with a beige head. Notes of wood, vanilla, and chocolate in aroma. Add some vinosity and you get the picture. Taste is sweet choclaty. I miss a little power in the finish. Anyway a really good stout!

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2010
On tap. Dark brown with a tanned head. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark fudge, chocolate, oak and fantastically well integrated bourbon notes. Flavor is sweet and vinous with a seamless combination of a light imperial stout and smooth bourbon. Roasted malts, dark fruits, fudge, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Really nice. Medium body, bigger than regular Hel & Verdoemenis. A great beer. A real treat.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2010
Sampled at Copenhagen Beerfestival 2010. Pitch black with a cappuchino colored head. All out bourbon at first, but give it a moment and the chocolate and coffee flavors comes lurking after. Very nice if you like BA-stuff. The sweetness is almost cloying, but it works in this beer.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et meget lille skumhoved, faktisk ikke eksisterende. Der er dog meget lidt karbonation. Duften er fantastisk med en god del sødme fra bourbon. Stadig er den brændte malt dog i højsadet. Smagen er lækker og balanceret hvor den solide humling i høj grad opvejer for den manglende karbonering i mundfylden. Faktisk vil jeg vove den påstand at vi er oppe i slut 4erne hvis der var bare en anelse mere. Lækker lækker øl.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Dark brown, almost black body with a thin, diminishing beige head. Strong aroma of sweet malt, roast and whisky. Flavor is sweet, roasted, heavy malt, molasses, coffee, liquorices, alcohol, wood and chocolate. It’s almost aggressive in flavors and smooth at the same time. Very nice.
