Sharted bottle at RBHD tasting. Pours pitch black with a small tanned head. Aroma of deep roasted malts, tar, coffee and bourbon. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Taste is complex deep roasted malty, soy and thick fat liquorice, lovely elixir.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 28 Feb 2015) Black colour with dense, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, vanilla, bourbon and oak wood. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice, vanilla, oak wood, bourbon and a warming finish with a generous coffee bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Full body, fairly sweet. Tasty and warming imperial stout with a balanced bourbon character. Excellent beer!

White label provided by Rob the emperical mastermind. White label. Consumed at Rustende Jager lobby whilst watching the sleet storm. Big ol mamba jamba. Black on black with just a ring of foam on top, tight to the glass. Plums are centraal. There, that’s me getting my language on. Surrounded.on each side is a crap load of dark goodness bolstered by an obscene ration of black patent malt. I like it. I do like it a lot. Bring it on sleet storm....

Vestergaard (1764) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle thanks to Erik. Pours a pitch black with a nice, brown, lasting, frothy head. Aroma has sweet chocolate and bourbon up front, dry wooden ash/smoke, some licorice, slightly hoppy and fairly roasty malts and coffee. Taste has coffee, roasty, malty, coffee tobacco bitterness, bourbon sweetness and dry oaky notes. Overall not a very sweet beer despite the bourbon aging. Very nice, though it’s not that flavorfull.

Shared byygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! The beer is black with a thin beige cap. Aromas of oak, vanilla, whiskey, chocolate. Great flavor. Certainly a European style RIS. Rich and dark. Soft on the palate. Heavy but yet easy drinking. I really enjoyed this. I would happily have this again.

yngwie (16524) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle, at Haand Festival -14. A really dark brown beer, topped by a small, beige head. Almost clear, and quite oily pour. The aroma has booze, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Not so much aroma of the Wild Turkey, just the alcohol. That goes for the flavor too, it’s roasted tending towards burnt, with chocolate and dark coffee. Full body, lightly warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with lots of dark malts and a solid dash of booze. Pretty lovely this one. 140523
