ClubGonzo (5089) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a pitch black body with a small caramel-hued light brown head. Nose is coffee, licorice, wood, alcohol, hints of cognac and dark berries. Taste is mocca, dark chocolate, licorice, hints of wood, cocoa and thick cereals in the back. Full creamy body, very soft carbonation. Really good stuff. The BA profile doesnít come out much but itís still a very nice beer.

Lore (1900) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2013
very dark coffe-like colour, minimal dark brown head; aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, some coffee and significant amount of cognac; taste of roasted coffe and malt, dark chocolate and cognac again; very complex, very good imperial stout - it would be one of my favourite if I were a stout-fan.

Pour out of 8 oz bottle, thick oily black pour with chocolate colored head, aroma brought big notes of dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, big cognac, lots of oak, dark burnt caramel, toffee, lots of oak, finishing fairly sweet. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, coffee, lots of cognac, hints of coffee, roast, lots of molasses, caramel, toffee, finishing sweet, slightly bitter, oaky. Very tasty.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Roasty dark chocolate, coffee, burnt/smoky, a bit boozy, grape/plum aroma with a touch of graham crackers. Rich, thick dark chocolate, burnt malty, somewhat smoky, a bit boozy, very rich flavor. Fun to drink in small amounts.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bottle via trade - thanks Alen! Super thick dense oily dark pour with a reddish brown head. Slick thick smooth palate. Chocolate, cognac, slight wood, soy, and some boozy sweet heat in this. This is just awesome!

I could enjoy this beer all night long.. Great and strong aroma, beautiful dark appearance, strong and fantastic taste! Palate is in balance and overall amazing Imperial Stout. Price is too heavy and availability is not so good :-)

Pours jet black. I mean JET. It looks like black paint. No head whatsoever. Some aromas of chocolate and soy. Not really getting the cognac. The taste is sweet and roasty with a slight alcohol heat. No carbonation at all.

This has to be my favorite beer of all times. WOW! Although im not a cognac fan and cognac is very present, this smells and tastes very very good. All the Goerge! series are good, but this one is just breathtaking!

Bottle (250 ml). Thanks to czar for helping me to get this bottle! Pitch black with a medium diminishing creamy/oily dark (!) brown head and little lacing. Aroma is of cognac, roasted malt, toffee, chocolate, oak, smoke and dried fruits. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately to heavily boozy with cognac, chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, wood and dark fruits. Warming alcohol. Sticky cognac. Full bodied. Low to moderate carbonation. Thick and oily/syrupy mouthfeel. This is definitely a sipper and itís a good thing that it comes in 250 ml bottles, more than that would be too much for me. Really complex. Too boozy and hot for my liking. Barrel treatment isnít subtle. Still a good BA RIS.
