Koelschtrinker (15757) - 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

TBone (15611) - 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.

mcberko (12416) - 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.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Green wood, vanilla and milk chocolate are whipped into a smooth dessert of an Imperial Stout, as roasted bitterness seals every sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Alcohol warmth appears in the finish.
-The mouthfeel is rich but not cloying.
-Wooden barrel appears a tad raw in the end.
