pushkinwow (2627) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle brought back by Steve and Mel from Copenhagen. Dark brown with a dark mocha head that settles down to a thin film. Very smooth, bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt, a nice islay presence with a warming booziness - if scotch isn’t your thing probably not going to like this unless you let it age for a bit an settle down. Full body with moderate carbonation, slightly bitter, peat, tobacco, delicious.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Warm asphalt, coffee, sweet chocolate, fruit esters. Notes of leather and tobacco. Creamy, thick almost as syrup, coffeeish like a fresh made espresso, slick and almost perfectly smooth (almost, because of the sharp peat notes). Sweet and full bodied, hence balancing the bitterness really well. Creamy, brown, durable head. Awesome.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - MAY 21, 2016
10.9%ABV. Imperial Stout. Nose has charcoal with mesquite coming to mind. The smoke takes on an almost chemical dimension with liniment coming to mind. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate has smoke, Japanese bamboo charcoal, mesquite briquets, black honey, Chinese lo han guo, scientific name Siraitia grosvenorii. This fruit is used in Chinese medicine to sweeten otherwise unpalatably bitter brews. The sweet malt in this bear of an ale is just that dark, smoky, medicinal and nectary. No hops Nice alcoholic heat in the back of the throat to finish. Goes on Favorites List ! Goes on All Time Faves!

crim (160) - POLAND - APR 25, 2016
Aromat drewniano alkoholowo, troche whisky bardzo gorzka kawa, troche chyba śliwki, jakiś ciemny owoc W smaku oleiste, gęste, pełne, likier kawowy , lekko przypalony ale tak kawowo posmak i dużo beczki i whisky Podsumowując jak cała seria jest po prostu bardzo dobre, dosyć dobrze czuć whisky, drobny minus w postaci wyczuwalnego alko w aromacie

Kingi (625) - - APR 16, 2016
Aroma is almost purely whiskey. Very black with a dark Brown head. Taste is medium whiskey medium sweetness. Palate is more jelly than liquid, a bit of alcohol burn. Good stuff but the whiskey on it isnt my thing.

k0mpsa (2511) - Tuusula, FINLAND - APR 16, 2016
Tap at mikkeller and friends, copenhagen. Black color, dark brown head. It’s thickest beer ever seen. Aroma has rich roasty notes, licorice, whiskey, wood. Thickest body ever tasted, it’s like kisel. Roasty, whiskey, some hops and coffee. Aroma promised little bit more but still like it.

lefossoyeur (589) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Pours dark black with a thin dark Brown head. Intense whisky aromas with licorice, light peat and smoke. Low carbonation, round body, great whisky presence, ashy, lots of coffee, really silky palate. Just a great big and bold Stout, never overpowering, really well balanced. Great stuff.

mathieuc (3390) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 Pours a dark brown with a small brown head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of peaty Islay, iodine. Taste is of smoke, scotch, light chocolate. Not too sweet or boozy, just perfect. Some grapiness. Body is medium-full and carbonation soft. There is some alcohol warmth for sure but it almost never feels hot. Lightly sticky. A solid Islay-BA imperial stout, I need more of that! This serie never fails to impress!
