Lenrick (11) - SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2010
The aroma has some roasted barley, alcohol, plus some other notes that are hard to describe. Weird and not too good. The taste is slightly tart, roasted and slightly dusty. Very unbalanced and very funny, full of inappropriate and misplaced flavors. After-taste is salty and contains something resembling rotting seaweed. Interesting but not good beer

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very dark cola with a smaller fizzy foamy light tan froth. Aroma is fuller and maybe more creamy than the Peat and Wine, nice roast and coffee, warming alcohol, some burnt molasses, just a faint hint of licorice, bit of sour cream, this smells the most like an IS so far. Ooo thatís hot, way hotter than the Wine or Peat, has a great coffee flavor also, crunchy roast, touch of sour cream, super dark bitter chocolate, but quite warm, especially in the finish that is downright hot in the aftertaste, has that lasting boozy rum sugar note, also long piney hoppiness. Medium bodied, lively sizzling abundant carbonation that is similar to the Peat. The barrel booze is overpowering in this one, where it was subtler in the Peat and Wine editions. The honey is starting to make an appearance in the upfront flavor. Some of that plasticy taste in there too. A bit burnt and bitter, but like the Peat, the more one drinks the more balanced it seems to become.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with my Dad. Pours a stright solid obsidian black shiny with a wispy, slightly frothy beige head, Nice lacing down the side of my Tremens glass. Aroma of butter, cream, caramel, vanilla, honey, roasted almonds, sweet malt, oak, dry, spicy rum and lovely touches of hops and cocoa. Full bodied, but not agressive. Palate is insanely buttery, smooth, soft, and creamy. Boozy finish, but it balances out the sweetness. Seriously awesome Imperial stout.

oh6gdx (25464) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2010
Bottled. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is black hole with some wood and mild rum notes. Flavour is quite much the same. This is beautifully balanced and actually quite complex compared to the red wine one.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours onyx w 1f brown head. Nose is oaky rum, dark malt, choc, peat, molassses, blackberry, port, hops. Tastes malty, with oaky, rum, spirit, molasses, hops, an overall earthy peaty quality, and a medium palate. Late heat, and the rum barrels seem to dry this one out and add a hoppy and strong cognac element late, making this one most suitable for a snifter.

keepersj12 (3063) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Beautiful black as night with a big lacing tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is more complex with chocolate dominating then comes licorice, coffee, vanilla, the rum. Quite boozy as it warms with a nice warming on the throat. The finish is quite dry for the style. Very nice indeed.

Foxy brown-greige head over black beer. Coffee, spirit, some wood, sweetish-sourish aroma, rainwater. Again the sweet-sour stoutflavour, with a slight burnt bitterness, expecially retronasal. Remarkably little hops traceable in this version. Quite slick, if less viscous than the other versions tasted. Clear alcoholburn after swallowing, well-carbonated. The rum, on one had, lends some sweetness, and hence a good balance. OTOH, it lacks complexity compared to other versions as the peated whiskey.
