On opening there’s a huge whiff of bourbon: caramel, chocolate, coconut and vanilla. Low carbonation, but oh so lovely bourbon notes.

yngwie (16524) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. Black in the glass, more or less headless. Quite boozy aroma, but in a nice way. Caramel, licorice and chocolate, coconut and vanilla from the spirit, and some roasted, almost burnt malts. It’s sweet on the palate, full-bodied and smooth, with some warmth. There’s licorice, dark sugar, caramel and some bonfire in the flavor. Bitterness, coconut and vanilla. Lasting finish. A very nice one, blending the spirit and beer in a very nice way. 150711

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Rating 14,000. Bottle from a visit to the Ramsgate Brewery. Thanks Eddie, you are still the best brewer in Kent in my ever so humble opinion. Black beer, Bubbly tan head. Aroma of bourbon and dark chocolate. Touch of chocolate liquer aroma. A little bit of chocolate sponge cake aroma. No huge carbonation. Hides abv well. Some sting on the finish. A lot of chocolate, dark chocolate comes through, like dark Belgian chocolate. Bourbon in the mouth is very subtle. The flavour is excellent. A bit of a sipper. Just settled down with this and some radio comedy. Rather a good barrel aged impy stout. Touch of vanilla and coconut on the aroma.

hohops (821) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Appearance- black, and absolutely no head whatsoever. Plenty of alcohol legs. Aroma- chocolate, bitterness, cocoa, vanilla and bourbon notes, hint of leather. Taste- leathery, plenty of vanilla bourbon, smooth with almost no carbonation, a bit viscous but the mouthfeel is actually not that full. Bitter cocoa and coffee undertones, syrupy and a bit fudgy. Alcohol is quite well hidden. Pretty good imperial stout.

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 24, 2014
21/03/2014 330ml bottle (thanks Theydon_Bois!). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma beige-cappuccino modesta. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, zucchero di canna, toffee, alcol, ossidazione, squilibrata, rozza e aggressiva. In bocca alcol, malti tostati, caramello, ossidazione, completamente sballata e rozza. Corpo pieno, piatta. Pessima.
