Gerbeer (2126) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
250 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate head. Aromas of watery bourbon, medicinal alcohol and very light hints of the original George. Flavors of nutty dark chocolate, vanilla, and base George. Hot. Disappointing relative to George but still a good beer.

rxeight (1611) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2015
330 ml, cap dated 30.10.23. Guessing that’s a best by date and was bottled 10 years earlier. In my fridge for almost a year. Dark, black as night pour. Smell is Mikkeller dark roast, Euro malt. Licorice and fig. Taste is very toasty malt. Like other euro imperials. Some smoke, licorice, dark fruit. Some barrel heat at the end, otherwise not much barrel in this one. Good stuff but nowhere near my top 50.

martjoobolut (1132) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2015
0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de). Pours black with brown head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, bourbon, coffee, malt. Flavor is very intense dark chocolate, roast, coffee, bourbon, smoke. Finish is intense roast bitter. Overall: great "punch in the face" stout, one of the best beers I have ever tried.

Martinus (3344) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2015
Pitch black colour, tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts. Bitter flavour, sweet, brown sugar, lots of liquorice, bay leaf, laurierdrop. Quite boozy. Finish lingering liquorice, sweet caramel and brown sugar.

Bloody fantastic. A bourbon barrel aged imperial stout to die for. If you see it you’ll be doing a disservice if you don’t get it.

suurjuust (1374) - ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2015
Black beer, small tan head. Nose is bourbon with smooth vanilla notes, alcohol, roast, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is roast and alcohol, some licorice, more vanilla and wood, smoke notes, chocolate. Finishes with alcohol, slight pepperiness, bourbon, roast. Very complex and very nice. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

wedgie9 (2490) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2015
From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with a thin brown head that leaves thin spotty lace. The nose is dark and roasted with tons of coffee, burnt molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla oak, and a bit of an ashy aroma. The flavor is a bit more molasses and milk chocolate, less burnt than I expected, with the same dark chocolate and coffee, with the light ashy note on the back of the palate. The body is full with light carbonation and a long bourbon coffee and lightly ashy finish.

tmrmwel (1123) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours pitch black, with very little head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, with quite straight forward cocoa and tobacco, as well as some sweet notes of barrel. Creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts, with oaken barrels, cocoa, leather and kandi, as well as lots of sweet bourbon notes. Lingering notes of burned malts and sweet, herbal cocoa in the finish.
