Had it a few times now, this is some of the best beer made, ever. Black with no head, rich awsome aroma. Coffee, cocoa, vinouse, wood and toffee, full bodied powerfull Complex sweet flavor, balances by complexity and alchohol. Highly enjoyable even in Very small dosis.

Shark_Pants (235) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottled 28 Jan 13, drank 21 Nov 14. Almost black with small tan head. Lots of bourbon and oak with the dark chocolate, mocha, cream, vegemite. The taste is fantastic. Delicate balance between the sweet bourbon, treacle, cream, chocolate, a little espresso and the bitter/dry ashiness, a hint of hops and the dry oak. Nice stickiness. Really good BA imperial stout. Reminds me a lot of the Struise Cuvee Delphine.

Unknown bottle date. Pours oily black with no head. Aroma is fig, plum, raisin, ashtray, campfire, cocoa. Taste is similar with more chocolate covered raisin notes coming through for me. Smoky and distinct. Smooth and worth sipping over a long while.

fletchfighters (1118) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
11% version from 2013 330 ML bottle Brownish black pour, settled black. Quarter finger light brown head that falls to a collar. Just some spotty lacing. Nose is charred oak, malted chocolate milk, soft vanilla, and toasted coconut. Taste thin for the ABV. Lots of barrel notes. Vanilla, coconut, caramel, chocolate, and coco powder. Some char and a long lasting almond joy after taste. Thin in the mouth but a solid dry finish. ABV is well reserved and doubt this would make it to 25 years.

Bottle vintage 2013 courtesy of tom10101, thanks man! Black pour with a finger of light mocha head. Aroma is bourbon, ash, chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, ash, chocolate, light vanilla, finish is bitter, mouthfeel is bit thin for such a big beer, carbonation is medium. Very tasty.

douglas88 (6250) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to Christian. Bottled Jan. 2013. Pours a dark brown zwarte color with a medium bruin color. A big sweet woody nose, vanilla. The flavor is big bourbon, I don’t remember much about the old Wild Turkey, but this is about right, more fireball than sweet bourbon. Charred wood, vanilla, coffee. Light fruit. Oak. Woody all through. uitstekend. Quite mellow in many ways.

Vestergaard (426) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch, oily black with a beautiful nut brown head. Aroma has vanilla, cinnamon, bourbon, caramel sweetness, dark roast, port wine, figs. Taste has more chocolate, coffee, some sweet licorice, but still lots of these vanilla-bourbon-coconut flavors. Extremely easy drinkable, sweet stout. Alcohol is very well hidden. Fat, gentle body and low carbonation. Yum!

Houtmankutkop (24) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Een plens ruwe Brent olie in je glas, zwarte vingerverf. Ziet er doods uit. Nauwelijks schuim. Zachtzoete bitterheid. Een italiaanse espressobar met een bakje pure chocoladerozijnen. Dit concurreert met port. Kleine slokjes grote smaken. Ik ben om!

Cunningham (4775) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Thick black body with almost no head. Leather, mild peat, oak and vanilla nose. Full body. Tad sweet . Moderate bitterness and an oily creamy texture. Almost no carbonation. I can not say it is anything wrong with this one. Probably heaven for those who love this flavors. I am not unfortunately not a fan. But it have a fine profile with leather, mild peat, vanilla, oak and some coffee. It is a really complex ale with many dimensions.
