375ml bottle. Great whiskeyish notes aroma that knocks one out right away but the coming crazy-heavy-sweet stuff is already perceptible. Very heavy beer, almost with a feeling of liquid tar. Delightful notes of dark chocolate, dried berries, cherries, whisky, with some sour notes but it is so, so sweet. Even the quite intense herbal hoppiness can’t really balance this out. Well-done, amazingly attractive marketing presentation but I guess I like my barrel-aged Imperial Stout better when less intense in sweetness and, most probably, in alchool.

(375ml bottle best by 7/15/19 thanks to bu11zeye) near black with light tan soapy edge bubbles. Nose of whiskey, caramel, vanilla and ashy. Taste of whiskey, big alcohol, vanilla, very ashy, an alcohol bomb! Not nearly as good as the Islay.

Bouteille de 375ml. Bière noire avec une mousse brune peu durable. Le nez est de chocolat, whiskey, alcool. La bouche est forte, l’alcool est trop puissant. C’est fort, trop fort. L’alcool est chaud.

Bottle. Something special to celebrate tonights stage of the tour. Pours jet black with billowy dark tan coloured head. Huge amounts of lacing as it falls away. On an initial pour the aromas are dominated by the alcohol. Sweet dark fruits and some roasted grain start to come through Once the alcohol dies away the aromas are very sweet. Flavours are likewise very sugary sweet initially with plenty of vanilla coming through.. At the back of the palate this sweetness gives way to agressive roasted grain bitterness and alcohol burn. Very full creamy mouthfeel. Very bog beer.

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and lots of alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish with warming alcohol. Oily. Too much alcohol for my liking. 220410

(37.5 cl) Le liquide est complètement noir. La tête mousseuse brune est de bonne dimension. Des traces restent collées au verre. Le nez présente des notes évidentes de whisky avec des malts fortement rôtis, du chocolat noir, du caramel, des notes boisées et une bonne chaleur éthylique. Le goût est dominé par des saveurs puissantes de scotch avec, en sourdine, des malts torréfiés et chocolatés. En bouche, le liquide est bien rond, enveloppant. L’effervescence me semble bien adéquate, très douce, fidèle au style. La texture est moelleuse, un véritable velours pour la gorge. En finale, les notes rôties et amères sont occultées par un alcool chaud et même brûlant. En résumé, extrême.

Courtesy of Blazer06. Pours very dark with nice looking mocha head. The aroma offers up chocolate, dark to burnt malts and boozy whiskey. The taste delivers some roasted malts, dark roasted malts, burnt malts and some spicy black licorice. Midway and into the finish smooth sweet whiskey booze seems to hold the whole experience together. Tastes pretty good.
