Shark_Pants (424) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2015
Tar-like appearance with small coffee coloured head. Very forward bourbon and oak aromas, with the expected dark chocolate, vanilla, leather and licorice. The taste is beautifully rich - loads of dark chocolate, bourbon, tannic oak, roasted coffee, licorice and a little ash in the finish. Very smooth, oily and full bodied. Really outstanding.

bursprak (1220) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from the most recent batch. Poured into an oversized snifter. Pitch black oily pour with a small mocha head. Nose has tons of bourbon notes, vanilla and some licorice. Taste is pretty bourbon forwarded as well, some vanilla fudge and light smoke as well. Super smooth stuff!

pyskaty_dawid (12) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Totally black. Used car oil consistence. Very rich aroma. Chocolate pralines, sweet coffe, vanilla, woody accents, alcohol notes (but in a good way). Sweetnees is balanced by high bitterness. Very long chocolate aftertaste. Rich and big beer.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Butelka (inna etykieta niz na zdjeciu z RB), warka do 30.10.23. Przy nalewaniu fajne wrazenie wlewania zuzytego oleju silnikowego, ewidentnie widac gesta, lepka konsystencje. Calkowicie nieprzejrzysty. Piana bardzo mala. redukuje sie do obraczki, brunatno-brazowa. Aromat z butelki od razu bardzo mocno wyczuwalny, dwie podstawowe skladowe to whiski (no dobra, niech bedzie - bourbon) i suszone sliwki. Pozniej tez - juz nieco delikatniej - drewno, popiol, palone slody, kawa, wanilia, gorzka czekolada, kwiaty, karmel...wszystkiego po trochu - kolejnosc nieprzypadkowa :) czuc tez alkohol, ale delikatnie dosc, gubi sie w tej rozbudowanej calosci. Smak juz nie robi az takiego wrazenia - jest oczywiscie bourbon, sliwki suszone, kawa, wanilia... ale mocniej czuc slody, kwaskowatosc od nich. Bardzo dlugie i zroznicowane posmaki - zazwyczaj kwaskowatosc + kawa, sliwki.Odczucie w ustach baaaardzo mile, dzieki gestosci, tresciwosci, lepkosci. Niemal zerowe wysycenie pasuje do tego. Bardzo dobre piwo. ale... "Were your expectations met?" - tak nie do konca...

Gerbeer (2319) - 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 (1844) - 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.
