Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Appearance: Black, looks like oil, no head other than a thin tan glass ring. Aroma: Bitter chocolate, brandy, treacle, liquorice, slight spice, roasty, very, very, slight undertone of peatiness. Taste: Medium sweetness, medium/high bitterness, liquorice, treacle and slight sourness. Palate: Thick body, full mouthfeel, coarse/thick texture, low carbonation, quick dry astringent finish and warming. Then in the aftertaste the astringency hits the tongue and mouth again as does the alcohol warmth which has a spice heat to it. Comments: Lovely, very, very satisfying, I definitely want another! Left a short lived glass lace.

Flavour is roasted, almost burnt malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, liquorice, and some warming alcohol – with a bitter finish.

barn0216 (483) - California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Coffee/cocoa, very roasty. Tempered by the cognac aging. Flavor also has that noticeably cognac booze edge. Some cherry sweetness plus the imperial stoutitude. Fairly restrained alcohol considering the 12 abv. Bitter finish from the roast. I want to really like it but something is a little off.

brnandersen (2298) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2013
25 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Pitch black with a small, tan head. Sweet aroma with rich, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, cognac shows as a mellow alcohol note with oak, dark dried fruits. Hints of licorice and vinous notes. Excellent. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body, oily feel and a flat carbonation. Perfect palate for an imp. stout! Long lasting bitter finish with rich, roasted malts. Alcohol shows as a pleasant burn. What an excellent experience!
