tmrmwel (1156) - 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.

Rating #1045, flaske fra Kihoskh

Helt sort øl uden skum, dog brunrødt skær i kanten. Duft af ristet malt, kaffe, røg og alkohol. Smagen er ren kaffegrums, salt, saltlakrids og en del alkohol afslutningsvis. Eftersmag af alkohol, kaffe og røg i flere minutter. Tyk og cremet, virkelig fænomenal.

eluosiren (126) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 1, 2015
The beer was bought for a New year’s Eve. It’s very light stout with a sensible aroma of wine or wiskey and a sweet and sour ending. Very much appreciated!

magicmn (112) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 31, 2014
Looks really oil-like. Coffee and chocalate aroma. Very full body reach malty taste with awesome notes of cofffee, chocolate, crème brûlée and elegan vanile. Long intensive aftertaste of expensive chocolate and cofffee with good bourbon. Almost perfect imperial stout.

Klimaet (466) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Just couldn’t wait longer to pop this, hah. Pours pitch black with a thick, dark brown delicious head. Damn, this beer always look so good. Aroma is mindblowingly good. Bourbon, coffee beans, licorice, cocoa powder, vanilla, some coconut-like sweeter notes, some tobacco, fudge, dry woody notes. Now to the taste. Oh, damn! Lots of sweeter light notes like vanilla and light caramel but behind that lies strong heavy notes like licorice, tobacco, grounded coffee beans and cocoa. Perfect balance.

rarbring (1700) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Aroma: The smell is very vinous, a dry pea presence, dark forest fruits, soy sauce an a dash of coffee.
Appearance: The beer is black and oily, a really brown head, a high head, leaving little lacing but with heavy curtains.
Taste: The taste is sweet brown sugar, coffee and dark chocolate, and some spicy coconut.
Palate: Light carbonation, oily, thick and soft, a light dry finish.
Overall: This is a stout with everything extra added, but it does not cross the line.
Note: Bottle at De Klomp sampling Reviewed 2011-09-10.

ABT_S54 (221) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2014 33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours an oily black liquid with a very short lived brown head. Aroma is powerful bourbon, vanilla and buttery burnt malts. Taste is sweet bourbon and vanilla with a creamy mouthfeel and a slightly bitter aftertaste. The ABV is extremely well hidden. A truly massive imperial stout and one of the finest examples I have tried.

mmahut (1362) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle. The beer pours in very oily texture that is just black with no head at all. Aroma is complex right away, a lot of nutty toasty character right away, dark chocolate, woody, well balanced whiskey character. Amazing. Little bit cocoa too. Impressive balance. Taste has high woody bitterness, little bit too much as it’s pretty astringent, almost salty. Medium to high roasty chocolate sweetness. Body is full, low carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.
