TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle at SBWF2014. My 100th Canadian rating. Dark black color, small brownish head. Aroma is weird mix of wilderness, paper and toast. Medium-bodied. Chocolate, wild yeast (mellow) and caramel. Quite odd beer.

Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Malziger, leicht süßer Antrunk mit milden Kaffeenoten. Für ein Imperial Stout sehr süffig, dennoch vollmundig, die Kaffeenoten steigern sich. Leichte Bourbonnoten, passend. Weich schokoladig, geringe Bitterkeit. Sehr gut! 11/12/11/12/8/11

mcberko (6885) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from Marheb (thanks a lot, Martin), pours black with a medium tan head. Nose is very milky, with lactose, bourbon, vanilla and some sweetness. Flavour is similar, with bourbon, vanilla, lactose, and sweet cocoa. Full-bodied, with light bourbon accentuating the mouthfeel. Very full and decadent. Great stuff.

Bouteille de 750 ml achetée chez Veux-tu une Bière? (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Odeur de chocolat noir et de bourbon. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Gout de chocolat noir et de vanille avec une pointe de café. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement chocolaté. (Rating #5201)

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolates notes with light dry coffee notes with some light vanilla and bourbon notes. Taste is also dominated by nice black chocolate notes with limited bitterness and some light vanilla and bourbon notes with a dry finish with notes of roasted malt and coffee. Body is above average with nice creamy texture and no apparent alcohol. Solid rendition of the style with good balance between the different flavours. Bourbon notes could have been a bit more pronounced but very enjoyable nonetheless.
