Bottle. Black, tan head. Roasted barley, soft oaky, slight whiskey nose. Intensive, but nice soft. Sweet ashy roasted body. Peat, ashy, ground espresso. Full bodied, slighly, delightfully, oily body. Really like this. The sweetness adds so much to the enjoyment.

DwarfeD (1163) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Black with a small off-white head. Full thick body without carbonation. Sweet with tones of licorice, coffee, roasted malts, whiskey and quite some alcohol.

Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Black with a small tan head. Smoke, whisky, peat and some alcohol. Not bad but a bit harsh.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: tydlig fatdoft men även en lite industridoft. Smaken är ok men lite tillbakahållen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Franksv6 (277) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Dark black beer with a very small beige head. Smells smokey and whiskey to wood, oily texture. Taste likes smoked whiskey, roast coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt. Delicious beer.

laiti (5978) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 03/2015
Aroma has strong peaty tones. Also some licorice and whiskey. Flavour is sweet with lots of peat, some salty licorice, stingy whiskey tones and some alcohol. Too peaty, salty and stingy – drinkability is not high enough. Bunnahabhain is strong with this one.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
33cl bottle, BBE 12/15. My rating #3000. Pours black in color with a thin, but lasting brownish head. Lovely smoky, Islay whisky aroma, peat as well, covering much everything else. Flavor has peat, tar, smoke, whisky. Can´t remember the other Imperial Stouts from the White Label series were this smoky. Feels quite thin for this ABV. Very smooth. Finishes with some alcohol warmth and peat and licorice candy notes. Love it!

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours jet black color with a small off-white head. Nice smooth whisky notes first thing on the nose, some mild oaky notes, slightly peaty, roasty and malty, faint dark chocolate also. The aroma just keeps getting better as the beer warms up a bit.
Vanilla and peat on the flavor, distant dark berry notes, dry cocoa, faint whisky notes and wood. Smooth, thick palate, almost oily even, leaves a lingering woody and peaty aftertaste. Very refined and complex slow sipper. No whisky overlords trying to overpower other flavors here, well balanced and pleasant. Excellent. Emelisse seems to know it’s BA Imperial Stouts.
