Bottle @ Odense Get Together Short Notice, August-14. Thanks SFH for sharing. 2013. Red Wax. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Vanilla, roast, mild booze, coffee and bourbon. Smooth and slick! Vinous , complex and just pure deliciousness!

Christian (11052) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Odense Late Summer Post-Munkekonge Whale Spotting Night. 2013 vintage. Black with a small, but lasting tan head. The well balanced aroma has licorice, chocolate and bourbon with a faint charcoal note. Sweet, roasted flavour with nice bourbon character. Very tasty, though perhaps a little bit on the sugary sweet side for my taste, and with a little too much burnt character in the finish.

Thisis12ptfont (831) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Massive aromas of bourbon, milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee bean oils and earthy hops. Black appearance with a thin tan rim. Taste is very dry chocolate, toffee, oak, espresso, and dry maple. Bourbon is accented well on the finish which is more dry dark chocolate and big booze. Dark fruits shine as it warms. Overall, really nice imp stout with really dry chocolate overtones and some nice espresso notes. Don’t really pick up any honey on the palate though. A rating.

dmac (3983) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Red wax 22oz 2013. Poured a dark black with a foamy deep beige head. Aroma of heat, chocolate, whiskey, rye, wood, dry pudding skins. Palate is good, mediu, to full, slightly creamy, softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste with some heat. Flavor of alcohol, dry chocolate, burnt toast, rye, burnt chocolate malts, some burnt ash. Not bad but not worthy of the big $$$.
