hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Draft at Torst- lovely black with blood red highlights around the glass- The barrel aspects meld wonderfully with the underlying deliciously smooth stout- strong, sweet- yet not cloying- with the big roasted tones balancing everything out and the port mellowing what is left with some merlot/vineous notes- my only complaint was an unpleasant lacker/medicinal/pheonlic type aromatic at the way end when it was pretty warm- note, torst served it at proper temp, warmer to begin with- but thats it- otherwise, wonderful.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet with roast malt. The flavor is also sweet with a good deal of coffee and chocolate. The beer is very smooth with the big alcohol hidden nicely.

javiercrasher (216) - Granada, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2014
Petroleo negro coronado por una espuma beige de escasa retención. Aromas a madera impregnada en licor, pastel de chocolate con cerezas, vainilla y un poco de humo. El alcohol se deja sentir agradablemente en la nariz. Buen cuerpo, cremosa y con poco carbónico. En boca bastante licorosa. También chocolate dulce y algo de Oporto. Tremenda!!

rodenbach99 (3461) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Un bel exemple que le bois n’améliore pas nécessairement les choses, cette bière est moins que la ordinaire, moins bonne, moins riche, moins sucrée, moins bien balancé. Elle est bonne mais un léger goût de vielle épice en fin de bouche gâche la sauce.

SlovakSniper (3634) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Petite bouteille qui crache un liquide pourpre qui ne construit aucune mousse. Le nez révèle des notes de cerises, de mûres, de fraises et de prunes qui évoluent sur des notes rôties, de mélasse, de réglisse et de noix grillées et fumées. La bouche est bien enlignée vers le porto. Il y a un bon équilibre entre l’acidité, les tannins et les sucres résiduels. La riche base maltée s’exprime librement tandis que la transpiration du fût assure une étonnante vivacité. En bouche, le corps me semble aéré. La texture est celle d’un vin muté bien gras. La finale est un mélange complexe de fruits, de grains fumants, de chocolat, d’amertume et d’acidité. Ce stout impérial est savoureux. La barrique est intelligemment utilisée. C’est franchement facile à boire. Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø est définitivement un maître de la chose noire.

Wow! Renews my faith in this style, having so many disappointments lately. The aroma is coffee, vanilla, wood, licorice, chocolate. The appearance is gorgeous, deep black, deep tan head, oily lacing on glass. The flavor is coffee, cream, chocolate, licorice, oak, vanilla. Beautiful mosaic of flavors. The finish is coffee, light roast, light pine. Awesome thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Just freakin awesome.

DuffMan (7501) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Incredibly dark, viscous pour, like motor oil overdue for a change. The head takes its sweet-ass time to form too, reddish brown and finely bubbled. The aroma is sweet and dark and dense and a bit woody. The palate is thick and sticky, with huge ruby port character, vinous dark fruits, chocolate, and leathery wood. Fruit acids in the finish. Silky, velvety mouthfeel. Whoah.
