jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
25-NOV-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Black with brown head that dies quickly and only leaves a brown rim and a slightly coated glass. Nose is tar, smoke like peaty, very roaste - burnt chocolate and espresso. Taste is the same with a sweet dark fruit-like addition. Under the peat I sense some wood, dry wood. Layers of burnt brown sugar fills the mouth. Fine carbonation to sort of break the sweetness. Extremely complex, and very very sweet. Nothing wrong with that:-) I love this brew. My 99th Mikkeller rating and my rating #1200.

Black color, with a creamy but not persistent head. The aroma of roasted malts is also mildly cheesy, very nice. It would have a better mouthfeel with less carbonation; the body is not too thick; excellent flavor of chocolate and dark malts, spicy, peppery, with a good share of sugars, and also high alcohol content, everything powerful but balancing each other. Very good.

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. What a suprise this one. Much tastier than expected. Vinous and complex with a lot of things going on both in the aroma and taste. I need another bottle. Once again an excellent Imperial Stout from Mikkeller.

planky84 (1907) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Blacker than Thatcher’s heart pour with a thick, creamy tan head. Raisins, bonfire toffee, plain chocolate and burnt sugar aromas. Most alluring indeed. Smoky-dry flavours of dark roast coffee and chocolate. Quite sticky. Dry as Jack Dee’s wit finish. I love me Impys and this is up there with the best of ’em!

fantti (675) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Pours pitch black with brown and very big steady foam. Aroma is roasty, little burnt, chocolate, licorice, finnish salty licorice, herbs and little hop bitterness on background. Taste is chocolate sweet, salty licorice-like, little roasty. On the background is coffee and citrus. Palate is medium and quite bitter. All in all, very stable imperial stout, which has something special.
