UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Massive massive aroma of vinegar, ply wood, oak, cognac, some whisky and also some attic funk. At first its quite acidic, but then a bomb hits you, PERFECT balance, the cognac shines but it balances so well with the beer. This is just amazing. Long long finish. A beer that is hard to make without going over the top. Jesus!! Best imperial stout I have had! Thanks Martinus!!

2012 bottle at home. Smell is cognac, alcoholic, with a small hint of fruity sourness. Taste is chocolate, lots of cognac, coffee. Had this one twice. The second I tried was quite oxidized so Im not ging this a very high score, it would have earned the first time.

Deep dark beer with creamy brown head. The creamy roasted flavor is thick and carry the vanilla bourbon softly. Very enjoyable.

Little 18cl bottle pours an oily, translucent deep brown, basically no head. Nose has wet wood, burnt wood, a little mushroom, some German chocolate cake. Flavor is chocolate, watery coffee, earthy tree bark, cola, vanilla. Finishes watery, but it is a bit old. Just a bit too far gone.
