godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, - OCT 2, 2011
cask at DdC anniversary. 11.5%. room temp. colour is pitch black and there’s almost no head, just a thin moka rim touching the glass. aroma has all the roasted malts and coffee like the regular version, but with the added oak and bourbon from aging. the oak and bourbon is intense in both the aroma and the taste, but not at all overwhelming. this was extremely well done. thick and heavy bodied, little to no carbonation. this was already my favourite beer on earth!

Good gravy this stuff is good. Pour is jet-black with a velvety brown head with solid retention and great lacing. This barrel-aged version doesn’t have as much coffee punch as the original, but there’s so much else going on. Chocolate and coffee, lots of boozy bourbon and wood, vanilla, dark fruit, molasses and caramel, roasted grain/burnt toast and a bit of smoke. Taste is more velvet: a smooth, creamy, sweet, heavy malt with a perfect amount of chocolate/coffee bitterness to hide the alcohol. This stuff is so well-balanced. Nothing overwhelms, notably the bourbon barrel, which is on full display without stealing the show. I wish I had a hundred more of these.

Big thanks to bursprak! Pours black with a brown head - nice! Aroma is very coffee forward with lots of caramel, sweet tobacco, liquorice, vanilla, chocolate and some nice wooden bourbon notes. The taste on this one has notes of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, wood, roasted coffee, a bit of the sweet tobacco here as well, roasted malts and a savory end. A really nice barrel aged impy!

Vestergaard (453) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle thanks to Erik! Pours a pitch black with a nice, mocha brown head. Aroma is pretty roasty with lots of fruity coffee, some oatmealish stuff, slight sweet bourbon and vanilla, tobacco, dark chocolate. Taste is very smooth with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco, roast, sweeter bourbon notes, but it’s still pretty subtle. The coffee is really dominant, but the beer is extremely well balanced anyways. Extremely smooth body and medium low carbonation. Really nice surprise!

andrew_drinks (102) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from BD Clapham Junction, poured into an ostentatious wine glass in the absence of any proper glassware. Deep dark chestnut brown pour, small cream head, touch of lacing. Aroma is top-tier - bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate, fresh espresso, light roast - perfect. Medium carbonation, could stand to be thicker in the mouth. Flavour is creamy coffee, dark bitter chocolate, burnt toast, dulche de leche, espresso. Top flight coffee stout.

teorn88 (2822) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at BD Camden tap takeover. It pours a deep dark brown color with a medium mocha head. Aroma is bold and quite sweet with notes of coffee, vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate mousse, leather, booze. Taste is quite sweet and lightly roasty and bitter, with notes of grinded coffee beans, cocoa powder, chocolate milk, vanilla, sweet red beery marmalade. Bourbon presence is quite pronounced, and I love it. Finishes sweet velvety and warming. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, truly delicious

tiarasummer (11) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Pours a nice creamy dark black with a thin lasting off beige head and great lace. Aroma is a nutty creamy smooth big espresso- earth, leather, and light but balanced bourbon- good vanilla mixing with the chocolate and roasted coffee. Smooth bourbon in the flavor- very subtle and acts to blend the beer together better- smooth yet intense coffee, vanilla, chocolate, toasty, nutty and some earth.

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
This is what a barrel aged beer should taste like. Pours a beige mocha head atop an opaque body. Nose of bourbon and vanilla. Very alcohol of aroma yet nose absent of the familiar coffee base. Very smooth, velvety. I love this. Wonderful. Purchased at Metro Liquor for $4.55 per 355ml bottle. Thanks Drew!

341ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours dark brown, thick tan head. Aromas of fresh coffee, bourbon notes, vanilla, boozy, near whisky in fact. Taste is dark chocolate, more vanilla bourbon, coffee. Sweet, boozy finish. Nicely done, but have had better in the style.
