INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle @ Brasserie 4:20. Black pearl color, very short brown head fast to disappear. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol. No noticeable smell of bourbon or vanilla; some fresh wood maybe. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, cherries, alcohol, molasses, just a little bit of vanilla when the beer got warmer. A little bit disappointing

Beerconnaiseur (73) - BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2014
37,5cl bottle at Gainsbar in Kortrijk - Belgium. Pours black dark with hardly any foam. Amazingly aromatic Imp, roast, saucy, soy, toffee, dark chocolate. The bourbon shines through beautifully. Reminds me of some very old matured beers I tasted. New beer but has an old aromatic character. Nice one!

Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
from Erzbierschof - black beer with no foam left; roasted aroma of chocolate, marzipan, mushrooms and soja sauce; pretty woody; no carbonation; sticky and very sweet; full-bodied, earthy and woody roasted finish with a solid presence of alcohol, umami and mushrooms - quite ugly in fact ...

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
12.7 ounce bottle purchased from Ledger’s Liquors about 3 years ago. Has been refigerated ever since. The aroma on this is very pleasant with plenty of chocolate sweetness, bourbon, and some woodiness. A little vanilla extract, too. Quaffable. Opaque essentially black body present with a medium, tan head present. Fair lacing after all these years. Starts with a velvety, sweet-ish chocolate flavor. Lowly carbonated. Becomes rather woody and kind of dry in the middle. Bourbon shines through nicely. Finishes with a little warming finish. For being such a big beer, this seems to be a bit light bodied and a little thin and flat. It’s nice stuff, but seems to be lacing the layers of complexity I would like.

Backlog. Tried on tap at the Copenhagen Beer Festival. An immense stout truly worthy of it’s name. One of the better out there. Not sure if the barrels really contributed anything significant to the brew.

Buongiorgio00 (757) - - FEB 11, 2014
Si tratta di una birra olimpica, la Venere Nera delle imperial stout barricate. In lei tutte le sfaccettature, dal torbato penetrante e caldo alla leggera sfumatura amara alle intense note di caffé, cioccolato e malti tostati fino al tocco acidulo finale si legano in una struttura assolutamente equilibrata, un’orgia di gusti che incatena il palato con un incantesimo irresistibile. Basta attraversare questo buco nero per trovarsi decisamente in una dimensione parallela del gusto.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. 13.1%. Best before 18.03.14. Pours almost black with a small, quickly disappearing greyish-brown head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet, bordering molasses, with dark fruits, and is a bit oxidized. Remote sweet liquorice note in the background. Flavour is tart, with dark fruits, a bit oxidized, and has a cold coffee feel to it (without an actual coffee note). Somewhat wine-like. Tart, roasted, dark fruit finish with a cold coffee/tobacco note and an alcohol burn. Overall so-so. The aroma is rather good, but the flavour doesn’t really hold up; too tart/sour, and the cold coffee note feels misplaced. I wrote the same about the Red wine edition; this one is marginally better though. 04.01.14.

angelkostvo (583) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 21, 2013
Black colour, no head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate, coffee, earth, leather, tobacco, liquorice. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet a lot of coffee flavour, dry finish. Medium body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation. Interesting.
