2012 bottle fresh. Pitch black pour with minimal brown head. Very strong aroma of chocolate, bourbon, and liquor. Fantastic mouthfeel. Thick and creamy. The flavors are off the wall. Lots of booze, chocolate, coffee, and bourbon. This beer is on the same level as KBS from founders. One of the most balanced RISs I’ve ever had.

I have had this bottle for a long time. I am pretty excited to try it! Pours a dark motor oil like color. Very thin head. Oh and gold cap on this bottle! Smells of oatmeal, some bourbon and some chocolate. Taste has a bunch of chocolate flavors with a smooth bourbon after taste. Slightly dry in the finish. Bit of an oatmeal cookie taste too! Delicious!

Ölföreningens julölsprovning 2014. Smak och doft av vanilj, choklad, kaffe, torkad frukt, bourbon och trä. Rund och len, välbalanserad, fina smaker, fin beska. Riktigt gott det här!

Draught, 2011 pitch black. 1 finger dense creamy head. Vanilla, coconut, coffee and fudge. Smells insanely sweet. This is ridiculously boozy. Alcohol for days and very sweet. Fudge, rye bread and a lot of vanilla. Just not a fantastic Impy

Draught @ Fermentoren. Pours pitch black with a deliciously looking creamy mocha head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon and wood. Flavour is bittersweet, Full bodied, creamy and smooth texture, carbonation is on the soft side. Finish is chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Very smooth and unlike other impy’s, I actually like this one better when it’s colder than it should be

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a pitch black body with a large creamy, short-lived beige head. Nose is sweet malty caramel tones, vanilla, bubble gum, mild bourbon notes and hints of chocolate, licorice and roasted bread. Taste is licorice, bourbon, wood, chocolate, coffee, biscuits, burnt toast and hints of caramel, nuts and mild smoke. Full body, medium carbonation. Very nice and smooth, without being quite of the outstanding kind.

White cap. Black, small tan head with some retention. Aroma is a bit muted, some chocolate, some bourbon, hint of red fruit. Flavor is nice, velvet smooth, hints of chocolate, really bourbon heavy. Solid BA stout.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a thick pitch black color with a nice brown head. Aroma has a big barrel character, with lots of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, and a solid background of dark roasted malts. Same in the flavor, great roasted malts with the barrel shining through. Excellent imperial stout. Would love to try the BA DORIS!
