Pours black, wall to wall, with a dark brown head. This is a very dark beer. Happy memories of the original version are coming back to me from that walnut-dark chocolate mocha head. Just a bit of lacing but pretty good retention for a big barrel-aged stout. I imagine the brett helps. The aroma has a whole bunch of dark chocolate and roast, and itís shot through with a blackberry fruitiness. Thereís a mild oak presence, sweet, gooey caramel, and a well-blended vanilla note that grows rather strong as the beer warms. Thereís also red wine, molasses, cherry, raspberry, raisin, plum, cocoa, coffee and a touch of vinegar. And it all works beautifully together. The taste starts with sweet caramel before roast and dark chocolate start to kick up. The blackberry-red wine-cherry fruitiness quickly peeks its head up and announces that this is no normal imperial stout. Thereís a sour twang to beer, but it just enhances the rest of the flavors and tastes very little like an unintentionally soured stout. Itís reminds me of a fancy raspberry and dark chocolate truffle. Mild roast and wood bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit thinned out by the the barrel, but thereís still plenty of body, and the flavor is full and rich. Very little booze. For me, HaandBryggerietís best work is Odinís Tipple, and this beer is a worthy twist on its base. Personally, I like the subtle approach, but itís worth noting that itís not all that different from the normal stuff. Thereís a bit more vanilla and maybe a bit more fruit at this point in its age, but nothing really screams barrel-aged. That said, why mess with excellence? This is a big sipper of a beer with oodles of complexity to chew through.

This was absolutely horrible. I couldnít stand the taste. Like old gym sock shredded and put in a beer. I wasnít even impressed with the packaging. Disappointing.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle, 07/23/2013. Pours black, medium fluffy dark mocha head, dies to the surface relatively quickly, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is dry roasted chocolate malts, cocoa powder, espresso, dark berry sweetness, subtle vanilla with expansive woody finish. Taste is mildly acetic coffee, red wine notes, dark chocolate, more wood in the finish. Thick body, slick. Interesting, really nice.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottled. Dark-brown to black pour. Medium brown foamy head with great lacing. Full mouthfeel, slightly slick. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate, sandalwood in the nose. Huge roasty malt. Sweet up front with a tangy, sour finish. Nice hint of alcohol warmth. A great beer made better by barrel aging. I'll certainly seek out more of this and hope I can find a couple more bottles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

brnandersen (2021) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2013
Sample from 50 cl bottle. Pitch black with a small, tan head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee. A good amount of oak in this one: Spicy, wooden, almost acidic. Taste is sweet. Full body, creamy texture. Finishes bitter with dark chocolate and roasted malts. A good example of oak barrels adding extra layers of flavor.
