4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from a fresh bottle into a Hoppin Frog snifter. Appearance is like old engine oil with a one finger tan head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, and whiskey. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, whiskey, licorice. There is also a backend hoppiness and slight smoke. Palate is incredibly smooth and fills the mouth with a nice viscous presence. If you haven’t had this you need to find a bottle. Well worth your time and effort. Cheers.

Piękna drobna, brązowa piana. Przypomina spienione lody czekoladowe.
Opada zupełnie. W smaku ciemne słody, wyraźny chmiel, lekka kwaskowośc na końcu.
Alkohol bardzo dobrze zamaskowany, ale przyjemnie rozgrzewa.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 600cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours thick and black with a brown head which is the darkest I have ever seen) but does not last too long. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon and dark chocolate. Taste is all of these flavours with even more extremeness. A reasonable bitterness to follow these indulgent flavours and a mouthfeel that is so thick that the runs down the outside of the glass didn’t complete their journey before they had solidified into a black river down the glass. Lovely.

Big chocolate and bourbon aromas. Silky, chocolaty flavors with vanilla and bourbon undertones on the finish. As good as I imaginied it would be!

65cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 07-06-2014.
Shared with lukasmh.
In short: a mighty rounded Imp. Stout..
Pours black with nice little very tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Liquor, wood, roasty, coffee and cocholate aromas. Medium body, flat carbonation, viscous texture. Taste is quite bitter, some vanilla,chocolate, coffee, liquor notes. Very smooth and well balanced, alcohol noticeable but well integrated. Ends bitter and quite dry. Really enjoyable and lovely.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, oats and bourbon. Taste is pretty much like the aroma - roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, oats, licorice, love and bourbon. Full creamy body and low carbonation. The aftertaste is quite roasted and has lots of bourbon in it. However, unlike most barrel aged beers it actually works quite well here. It feels very balanced. Very good.
