Black. Really thick and dark. Great brown head. Wonderful aromas of wood, vanilla, chocolate. Smooth. Tastes like wood, chocolate, smoke, red wine, fruits... Doesn’t stop evolving in your mouth. Dry, but some sweet fruits at some point. Long and delighting aftertaste. I could drink this one everyday.

haukur (1282) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 16, 2014
330ml, new label design. Pitch black, brown head. Aroma is complex, some dark chocolate, burn, smoke, roast, hint of vanilla. Big palate, long sweet finish. Good but too sweet.

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!

POLK (2195) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
Great nice black and rich imperial stout with a beautiful brown foam which provides good lace on the glass. Sweet almost smell of booze. Solid black and thick as oil. Aroma of cofee and wood.

antonstoop (166) - - JUN 23, 2014
33cl. bottle. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of malt, bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Enormous full bodied, with low carbonation. Taste is roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of vanilla. Aftertaste is boozy with lots of dark chocolate and coffee. It is smoother than the regular George. Very nice!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (2168) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 12.12% Totally black pour with the thinest of lines around the glass as head, on the first pour. After it has warmed up and a bit of swirling a small dark brown head forms and eventually leaves lighht lacing around the glass. Aroma has plenty of bourbon and vanilla, great! Some alcohol too. Taste of roasted malts, vanilla, wood, bourbon, light chocolate, bitter coffee,boozy notes but less than I was expecting from an alcohol level that high. Full thick body that you can almost chew, as much carbonation as it needs, sticky palate capturing all the flavours for long. Fantastic beer, curious to see what a couple of years will do to it.

stoutnick (491) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2014
Black, tan foam, some strong lacing on glass. Aroma is wood and roast. Taste is strong roast, vanilla, toffee caramel, treacle. Lovely finish. Overall, my favourite of the barrel aged Georges but still prefer the straight up one.
