mjs (5616) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2013
(Bottle, 0.25 l, from Drink Shop, Tallinn, 20130724) The beer poured oily and black. Its head was small, dense and light brown. Aroma had wood, chocolate, roasted malts, hint of vanilla and a little bit of coffee. Palate was full bodied and oily with lowish carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, smoke, wood, cognac and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody, roasty and bitter. A nice complex beer. I havenít tasted the plain George! so I cannot compare it with this one. Here the strong flavours mixed together in a way that I enjoyed drinking this.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2013
8.5 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Tried side-by-side with the Calvados version. Pours a deep, inky, oily midnight brown with a tiny dark tan head. Aroma of thick, rich roasted malts, charred oak, cognac that could be mistaken for rum, burnt sugar, cacao nibs, and plenty of warmth from the booze. Flavor of cognac, dark fruits (berries, figs, raisins), burnt brown sugar, charred oak, bitter dark chocolate, rich roast, and coffee. Rich. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, rich, super roasty mouthfeel. Roast and mellow bitterness lingers. Alcohol warmth throughout, including the aftertaste. Very, very good. I donít mind the small bottle; $14.99 was tough to swallow, though. Bests the Calvados and keeps getting better as it warms; the body seems to thicken and the flavors pop more. Wow.

jookos (3909) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013
bottle. pitch black with one of more darker heads iíve seen on a beer. pretty impressive aroma- mostly an oaky dry dark chocolate mixture, with crushed coffee beans, some vanilla. fullbodied with low carbonation. very drinkable though- not too bitter, thick or burnt. sweet molasses, dark fruits and a very nice dark floralness.

TheCametron (2197) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Benh. Cheers Pal. Drank up at Petes on the eve of the great banquet. Pours deep black with a startling bronze head. Straight 5-out-of-5 territory there. Aroma is pretty wild. So developed and with lots of elements. Chocolate, Cognac, Ash, Tar, Liquorice. Unbelievable. The body has such a thickness to it. Itís a dream imperial. So complex. So scrummy you guys.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 21.07.2013, 0,25l bottle @ home:
Small brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich and slightly sweet, dark malts, licorice, oak, dark sugar, alcohol, cocoa, grass, caramel, coffee. Taste is rich and slightly sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, licorice, dark berries, oak, grass, alcohol, cocoa, caramel. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very nice, but the regular one and bourbon edition is way better.

jonnyguns (1104) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a thick pitch black with a small dark brown head that quickly disappears and leaves great lacing. Nose is very sweet with vanilla and espresso dominating and the cognac is there too. Thick creamy mouthful, the espresso leads in the taste with chocolate, some burnt or smoky notes. Have not had any of the other Mikkeller George beers, but not getting too much of the barrel in the taste. Still a great imperial stout though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
