Skinnyviking (6791) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle. Low but lasting brown creamy head. Pitch black body. Powerful alcohol dominated choccolate aroma. Smooth and pleasant choccolate flavor with some hops bitterness but not too much of a good thing. Low carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste.

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Black pour. Small tan head that quickly dies down to a thin layer of bubbles and leaves a little bit of lacing behind. Smells of alcohol and a bit of chocolate. Mostly alcohol. Tastes of coffee and chocolate. Molasses as well. Some vanilla. Some alcohol. A little hot and thinner than I expected. Decent beer.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, alcohol, and chocolate, leading to a dry, roasted and bitter finish.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Pours without any carbonation too speak off, pitch black, very thick fluid. Aroma is all dried fruit, prunes, rich sweet things. Taste follows this lead, taking on more red fruit, brown sugar, and prunes. Mouthfeel is thick, slick, little/no carb,followed by a pleasant alcohol burn. A decadent sipper.

TheJester (1808) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
330 mL bottle from Plovmand. Black, with not much head. Not much of a pop when this one opened, and the carbonation was very low, so I wonder if there was a problem with bottling. The beer was very fine, however, with roast, cocoa, maraschino cherries, and a hint of booze. Great body. Thanks, Thomas.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice huge foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of black chocolate with light lactose notes and some deep roasted malt is quite sublime. Taste is also a great mix between some black chocolate with just enough lactose notes and some roasted malt to make this truly interesting. Body is full with a super nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. I wasn’t expecting much but this is truly wonderful. Mikkeller is becoming the go-to brewery for Imperial Stout.
