Mortlach (1868) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 22, 2014
22/01/2014 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma cappuccino non molto abbondante. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, botte, vaniglia, caffè, liquorosa, alcol. In bocca l’attacco è caffettoso, note di liquirizia, botte, acidula, complessa e appagante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Ottima imperial stout!

No head, viscously pouring oil-black beer. Sweetish smelling, chocolate nose; roasted, nutty touches and a - difficultly qualifyable - spirit aroma. Chocolate, coffee, and a massive spirit/whisky presence. Roastiness held in check, alcoholburn not! Black chocolate-covered dried fruits as raisins, plums or apricots. Very thick & viscous, long-lasting rroasted-sweetish flavours. What a warmth! Many thanks to Kees!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Draft @ acbf. Aroma is huge roast, smoky malt and whiskey, coffee, liquorice and more. Subtle coat of fruity and full Glen Elgin. In the flavour the whiskey takes a more dominant position. The roast is pushed to the back while the malts come more upfront. Fruity notes, smokey notes. Nice one.

BVery (9400) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle - thanks Todd! Very dark brown pour with zero head. Nose is whiskey, wood, and a hint of cherry. Palate is medium, and maybe a touch flat. Taste is very woody, with some whiskey warmth. Tasty stuff.

Beer5000 (5814) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2012
Sampled @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. A black body with a small beige head. Nice and strong aroma of dark malt, whisky, coffee and some peat. Flavor is sweet and bitter, dark malt, whisky, coffee, dry fruit and warming alcohol. The whisky is clearly represented but not overwhelming. Full body and long aftertaste. Nice one.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2012
(From notes 25 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Practically no head. The beer is almost pitch black. Aroma is sweet and wineish. Flavor toward a sweet soy sauce. Mouthfeel is watery, i.e. low viscosity, does not feel smooth/creamy as many others do. Finish is a alcoholic warming bitterness.

I realized while drinking this beer that I had a slight cold. I was not able to get the full experience. I suspect I would give this one a higher score when my left nostril actually lets air flow through it properly.

Bottled@omhper. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is fudge, toffee, caramel, some liquorice as well as mild whiskyish notes. Flavour is liquorice, toffee, mild tart wood, vanilla and some slight notes of alcohol. Smooth and rather balanced.

33CL bottle. Near opaque, mahogany colored beer, with a small tan and a little lacing. Whiskey notes shine through in aroma along with coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, hops and peat. Soft almost flat carbonation, medium bodied, oily, finishes with alcohol warmth. Flavor is sweet, salt licorice, coffee, vanilla, whiskey barrel. All nicely balanced. Aftertaste is long lasting, sweet and slightly bitter.
