fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 12, 2012
Best before 09/05/15, brewed 4y before
Black color, generous creamy head. The nice aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malt is a bit dusty, but complex. Big flavor of chocolate cookies, full bodied, roasted malt, quite evident alcohol; quite strong bitterness.
A bit too much roasted malt and alcohol in the end.

"first heavy hitter of the night, and it was a good one. a little on the sweet side but soooo smooth, and the cognac flavors and aroma blend so nicely with the already sweet coffee, vanilla, and honey from the stout. a treat."

Side by side with the bourbon version and to m surprise this edged it.That vinous, barrel note gave it some added complexity, that the simple though fun bourbon version lacked.These black holes are always fantastic.

Bottle code 4591105 consumed 11/12/2011 at 60° into Luigi Bormiolli Michelangelo 13.5oz Snifter

Black with a 1/2" desaturated khaki head that quickly dissipates to a thin sheet and decently thick ring. Minimal lacing with a couple very jagged peninsulas. Orange and brown highlights are visible at the edges.

Smell is on the milky sweet side but includes a full gamut of imperial stout characteristics that blend and flow smoothly. Everything from toasted malt and sugar to coffee, lactose, dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla, molasses and anise. The body is medium-heavy, somewhat runny and velvety, clinging to my palette leaving a warm sense of spirit and caramel. Aftertaste shows off the barrel aging in it’s most naked state with coffee and dark fruit to compliment in the background.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Bottle shared by esp0r with me, Simonsen & Edvard, september 28th 2013. Black body, tiny brown head. Aroma is nicely balanced between the heavy roasted stout and cognac barrels, vanilla and dark fruits shine here. Taste is slightly alcoholic, lots of dark malt, vanilla, cognac and wood. Some chocolate too. Nice complex roast and vanilla finish.

Bottle. Oily black pour with a small froth of dark tan foam. Aroma is cognac with dense plum and background chocolate. Taste is sweet cognac with dry ashy roast and chocolate and thin bitterness with alcohol. Surprisingly clean mouthfeel. Nice.
