KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a thick dark rich black with a very small (less than 1 finger) dark medium brown creamy head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma hits you right off the bat with a strong tawny port alcohol scent followed by dark roasted cereal malts and a leathery yeast odor with hints of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruitiness, oats and a touch of toffee. It tasted mildly sweet with a note of toffee and dried fruit in the beginning then progressed into a nice bitter-sweet flavor with strong coffee and dark chocolate notes at the finish with the flavor lasting an average duration on the palate. Mouthfeel was extremely full in body and a little syrupy yet rather creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall an awesome tasting Imperial Stout which has the flavors blending so well that the heavy alcohol odor barely shows itself in the taste.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle with Martin ahead of BOX’s Brazilian Birthday Bonanza. I remember drinking one of these with Benh some time ago also. Pure tidy so it is. Pours oily Black with an inspiring Brown head. Aroma is boozy chocolate and roasty coffee. Rich flavour with a weighty, robust body. Chocolatey warmth. It’s a real beaut. Drank this one immediately after the Bourbon County Stout. I reckon BCS pips it. Only just though...

dexcansino (423) - Andalucía, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2014
Cerveza negra, muy negra. Me huele a tabaco. Sabor muy complejo, miel de caña, toffee, especias, hierbas, ron, café. Una maravilla. La botella perfecta para compartir entre dos.
