BBF 12 smells sour-ish taste is a little bit sour, coffee, oaky, ... complex yet i’m not convinced like with the hel en verdoemenis ...

Bottle thanks to MrHangover! Pours opaque black , not much head, not much lacing. Aroma is strong roasted malts, a bit of peat, bourbon, cocoa powder. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, some prune along with all the stuff noted in the aroma. Medium plus body.

barn0216 (398) - California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from bytemesis. Black color, not a lot of head. Cherry bourbon, Some fruity and soy sauce aromas, or so my brethren say. Very strong flavor, bitter, cherry, dries the month. A little harsh. Hmmm.

Black color with dark rubine reflex one the boards of glass, whisky, and wood aroma, great taste! sweet, whisy, smoke, wood, not excessive roasted aftertaste, licorice,consistent body and null carbonation... On the top of Imperial Stout i’ve ever drunk (Emelisse, Emelisse Wild Turkey, black damnation III, brooklyn, Trabaoudor...)

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Tar black pour with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aromatics are of chocolate and toasted nuts mingled with loads of vanilla wonderfulness. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The Flavor is a blend of sweet fudge, chocolate and vanilla accompanied by a generous ration of fruity liquor. Finishes bittersweet and quite warming. Kudos to ctipping for sharing this world class bottle of beer!

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours opaque black with a small, bubbly tan head. The nose is rich roast, chocolate cake, vanilla, marshmallow, light smoke, coffee, earth and just a hint of whisky. The taste is rich, roasted malt, some acidity, coffee, booze, chocolate, orange peel, candied fruits, fruit cake, some bitterness, toffee and light smoke with a lingering rich roasty finish. Full body, low carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. A touch flat unfortunately... Smells rather nice indeed. Decent, but could have been lifted with more carbonation.

budznsudz (555) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Bottle courtesy of Mr. Hangover poured into FFF teku glass. Dark cola, very little head. Aroma is wood, soy sauce, orangy cognac, and vanilla. Taste is orange peel, barrel, smoke, hot booze. Not what I was expecting. Medium body and syrupy. I poured half down the drain.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 5, 2014
> A flat, thinner, tart dessert sweet stout

[ Bottle ][ bytemesis ][ 330mL ][ Pizza Poy Snifter ][ Trade ][ 2/5/14 ]
>> Pours clear deep ruby black with no foam/head formation. Nose is sweet brown alcohol barrel. Some really nice bourbon and vanilla at first, but it quickly dissipates leaving very little besides orange juice and mild cognac. Taste is sweeter, thin, acidic, orange juice/cognac. But overall pretty weak sauce withouth the dextrin and carbonation and bitterness to really make this a true stout. Finish is slightly woody and acidic, very thin from lack of carbonation and lemon tangy. Disappointing.
