Prokroustis (679) - Thessaloniki, - NOV 22, 2011
Black body, brown head. Extraordinary strong aroma of coffee, whiskey, burned malts, wood, honey, licorice, brown sugar, vanilla, dark chocolate. Full, syrupy body, alcohol quite well hidden. Amazing flavour with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, whiskey. An excellent beer, probably superior even to the already great original.

500ml bottle, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Bottle says itís aged 3 months in bourbon barrels. Batch 463, bottled 221009, best before 221014. Labeled 10.7%. Very dark brown, near black color. Thin ring of light brown head, couple bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Good chewiness. More dry finish. Dark fruit, a lot of tannic character, some raisin. Moderate bitter, light sweet, light bit of tart. Kind of disappointed by this. Maybe past itís prime, I think. Some oxidization flavors evident. Some soy. Maybe the brewery shouldnít have been so zealous with their best-by date.

So... I had a couple of guys over, and what they brought with them, was this shit. Yep, Pour is pitch black, with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is pretty sick, with plenty of coffee, earth, chocolate, nuts, bread, slight roast, oatmeal, weak vanilla, cacao powdered marzipan, finish licorice, slight booze. - Pretty complex... Yep. The taste is pretty sweet, but is very well balanced with plenty of roasted bitterness. Semi-full bodied, with a rather flat, but "mellowing" carbonation. This was bottled in 09, and has aged marvelously.. Thanks @Vestergaard and RasmusOtt for sharing this S.O.B.

Vestergaard (257) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2014
50 cl, 2009 bottle. Pours reddish black with a nice, fluffy brown head. Aroma has gunpowder, bourbon, vanilla, smooth coffee, caramel. Taste has a nice sweetness, slight chocolate, heavy roast, a little smoke, licorice, coffee. Itís indeed old, and the bourbon is really well incorporated in the beer. The coffee doesnít have the same power, and tastes a little like coffee that has been boiled a little to long.. But itís alright when the beer has so much else to offer. Slightly alcoholic, but in a very mature way, and it carries it well. Round full body with a medium to low carbonation. Very good and nostalgic stuff!

Bottled. Pours opaque with a small, tan head. leaving a good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, vanillaand bourbon.Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol notes. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great impy.

Christopsy (91) - SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Drank and noted 10 January 2013. Smells of dark chocolate leather, and coffee with a hint of bourbon. Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and a background hint of bourbon. Coffee gets stronger on the finish the further into the beer you go. Pours jet black with a dark toffee colored head.

Batch #462, Brygget 19.10.2009, BBE 19.10.2014 - Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of sweet bourbon, wood, oak, roasted malts, salty licorice, vanilla, dark chocolate, espresso coffee and hints of vegetables. Taste is complex,smooth, roasty and salty with bourbon notes, licorice, wood, oak, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee.

Heavy and complex imperial stout with a nice touch of bourbon, but not as perfectly balanced as the original.
