5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark almost black beer with small cinnamon coloured head on top. Aroma is just amazing. There is lots of vanilla from the bourbon, then roasted malt, coffee in different form, there is espresso and milk coffee. Some sweet chocolate also. Taste has bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, lots of coffee, dark chocolate, milk coffee and cream. Full body and low carbonation makes this an pleasure to drink. Hands down my favourite beer so far. The bourbon finish gives this great vanilla flavour which I like a lot in my imperial stout. Just perfect 5/5.

Black with brown head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, leather and some sweet roasted malt. Bourbon, roasted malt and smooth finish. Overall: nice and surprisingly sessionable. I miss the amazing coffee from the regular weasel.

Das Bier ist schwarz und es hat eine geringe aber sehr schöne braune Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, alkoholisch, Holzfass, Vanille, Kaffee. Geschmack extrem nach Vanille, sehr cremig, süß, schokoladig, sehr vollmundig, eine reine Geschmacksexplosion, wow!

Tap at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm, last of the keg, lucky me. Really mouth and very luxurious. The bourbon is well integrated into the base beer. Great stuff

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottled in Oct 2009 at 12.7%. Post-exam celebration beer. Black, very small foamy brown head settles to a ring. Aroma is strong bourbon - the usual coconut and vanilla, paint, maybe some metallic coffee. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is semisweet coffee, coconut, creamy vanilla, a little floral ashiness in the finish. Bourbon is very well integrated and no alcohol in the flavour. Very good. Dangerously drinkable for the strength.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bold super smooth IMP bomb! Huge maltiness, roasted malts, coffee, dark choco, perfect bourbon touch, wood, vanilla. Warming alco finish, but never gets too harsh. Bittersweet. Oily smoothness all the way. Maybe not the very top, but close enough. Awesome brew.

Thick dark ruby brown, thin greasy lacing and no head. Rich coconut, stewed figs. Rich spicy coconut. Steeped thick choc cake spongey malt. Wet leather. Thick, treacley mouthfeel but fades nicely and ensures a brisk boozy finish.
