lusikka (6434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
250 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, mudcake, grass and caramel. Flavour of roasted malts, salty licorice, wood, cognac, mudcake, grassy bitterness, bread and some complex fruitiness. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a roasty, wood, alcohol finish. I’m not a big fan of cognac but the cognac here wasn’t too overwhelming. Great stuff.

tiong (3933) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
250ml bottle from Systembolaget

Vertical with Calvados Edition - Pours pitch black with a brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, wood, oak, licorice, hints of sweet cognac. Taste is strong, roasty, wooden and oaky with notes of licorice, cognac and molasses. FInish is sweetish, roasty and smooth with licorice, wood, oak, cognac, vanilla and molasses. Quite tasty and well balanced imperial stout with cognac. Not quite as good as the Calvados Edition, though.

b3shine (5715) - Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2013
8.5 oz bottle to snifter (shared with jmborggren). Looks good; motor oil black with thin mocha lacing. Smells good too; sweet, malty, and chocolatey with some roast and a notable cognac presence. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good beer, but not worth almost $2/oz retail.

Sean9689 (285) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2013
On-tap at Dark Lord Day 2013.

Pours black, light tan-colored head, wisps on top. Nose is chocolate, very boozy, burnt sugars, and oak. Flavor is basically that of the nose...booze-forward with lots of chocolate and barrel influence. Pretty sweet...maybe a touch too much. Medium body, light carbonation, creamy finish. Nice, perhaps a bit overrated.

Thanks to Owen for the beer 250 ML bottle Ink black pour, dark leather brown head. Ample carbonation for the size of the beer. Visible ABV legs. Oak, dark chocolate, cognac, liquid brownie nose. Thick, rich and decadent. Big, slow sipper. Better variant than the calvados version. On par wiht the bourbon edition. Excellent beer

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours inky black with a dark tan smear. Aroma is cognac, oak, dark malt, alcohol and possibly some anise. Full + bodied. Flavor is very cognac, with some heat and oak and still, I think, anise. Nice sipper.

Woodshed 2.0. Big thanks to sebletitje for giving me this bottle. The 8.5oz bottle pours with a deep dark inky body supporting a thin mocha colored head of foam and leaving behind thick legs that stain the glass. The aroma offers up chocolate brownie, toffee, fudge, dark chocolate and black strap molasses. Yep, smells like a yummy chocolate shop. The taste is smooth rich nectar like goodness such as fudge, chocolate, toffee and sweet kettle caramelization. To midway it picks up smooth candy like cognac as well as moving into more and more booziness. Holy cow this is smooth and rich and nectar like. Oh yeah!!!
