Hands off one of the best imperial stouts I’ve ever had! Thick as motor oil, pitch black. Aroma of roasted malts, some liquorice and dark chocolate but most prominent is the bourbon. Mouthfeel is amazingly full bodied and taste is extremely nice with the same roasted malt, liquorice and dark chocolate and yet again a smooth vanilla/bourbon taste to finish it off! Carbonation is perfect imo. Doesn’t feel like over 12% ABV at all! Can’t find anything to complain about!

Wow, thanks for this one Allen. The nose on this beer is amazing. Huge barrel character and some smoke. Hints of vanilla and maybe a whisp of oak (haha). The taste is un freaking real, marshmallow and vanilla the best barrel attributes possible a little smoke like the nose and a well blended bourbon. Jesus Christo this beer is epic and I wish I could get more of it!

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 05.04.2014, old 0,25l bottle from Nøgne Ø, and new 0,33l bottle from Lervig @ home, side by side:

Nøgne Ø:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of sweet and spiced fruity, dark malts, dark sugar, dark fruits, spices, licorice, coffee, caramel, oak, vanilla, mild bourbon, grass, butterscotch. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish fruity, dark malts, dark sugar, oak, spices, caramel, licorice, coffee, oak, vanilla, mild bourbon, dark fruits, grass, butterscotch. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Much of the bourbon has evolved into more fruity and spicy notes, but it’s still just amazingly nice!

Lervig:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, dark malts, oak, coffee, bourbon, unripe banana, grass, caramel, hay, licorice, dark sugar. Taste is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, espresso, oak, bourbon, grass, vanilla, licorice, coffee, caramel, hay, unripe banana. Medium bitterness, dry oaky mouthfeel. Nice, but I guess it’s just too fresh, and way off what the Nøgne Ø version used to be before; sweet vanilla bourbon delight.

Wow. Really an amazing beer. Smooth as hell. Great look, taste, smell, everything. Better than BCBS. Similar to BB4D, BASS.

ABT_S54 (207) - 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.

Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2010
Fantastic taste and smell of roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruits and liquorice. Together with a fantasticly light mouthfeel, very close to chocolate mousse, this makes a winner.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a very dark-brown, huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, roasted malt, wood, chocolate, licorice and vanilla. The sweet flavour has notes of roasted malt, bourbon, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruits. It’s vinous, complex and incredibly nice.

Rate #2000, big thanks to Rasmus for this bottle! Pour into snifter is dark and thick oily black with dark tan, brown head, one of the darkest I’ve seen to date. Head is a bit thin and dissipates quickly but is expected with a 12% brew, alcohol legs stick around pretty well. Aroma has notes of big toffee, molasses, some anise, hints of fig, lots of dark chocolate, coffee notes as well. Taste is big notes of vanilla, dark fruit, toffee, lots of bourbon, but not overly boozy somehow, with notes of dark chocolate, toffee, some burnt toast and roasted malt, hints of smoke fill in the cracks but really do well to balance, finishes big, bitter, dry. So many layers, and tastes just great. Fantastic brew.

Lore (1224) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 16, 2014
deep dark colour (almost fully black), half inch of dense, creamy dark brown head, which lasts for several minutes leaving back beige lacing; aroma of coffee, whisky, herbal notes, dark chocolate, vanilla, hints of alcohol, some smoke and roasted notes; taste of herbal liqueur, dark chocolate, vanilla again, syrupy notes, roasted coffee, and whisky; spicy alcoholic and roasted bittery aftertaste; amazing imperial stout!
