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 (1102) - 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

maneliquor (3461) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a dirty tan head which has fantastic retention like every George before it. Nose shows a sharp sweetness from some vanilla without being too out of whack. Some heavy espresso coffee notes with some real meatiness to it - some bacon and smoke, almost like sausages. Taste shows mocha tones enveloped in smoke driven meatiness. Light bacon in particular with some heavy sweet vanilla undertones. Quite unbalanced compared to the previous George’s I’ve had. Mouth feel is unreal though but the balance is just a tad out of whack. Strill a very good beer

Roonai (305) - - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle shared by Derek. Pours very rich chocolate brown w a dark brown head leaving a marble swirl film. Nose is BIG roasted malts chocolate and coffee and grains and an undertone of the rich cognac. Taste is that same massive layer of flavors; roast grain malts chocolate coffee... Loads going on with some cognac throughout. A TAD Much but tasty.

deyholla (7950) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours an oily black with a thin dark brown head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bitter dark grains and roasted malts with a hint of coffee and warming cognac. Flavor is bitter chocolate and roasted malts that are joined by a nice cognac warming note. Extremely smooth.

jackl (5565) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Deep brown with a very thick dark tan head. Very attractive beer. Good head retention. The nose is strong roast. Loads of dark malt, ashy earth. Burnt forest. Fat caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Soft boozy heat. The taste is quite tangy. Rum raisin, dark forest fruits. Ashy bitterness. More char, dark bitter chocolate. A bit hot, boozy. Quite sweet on the finish. Plenty of caramel, a bit of vanilla. Full body, quite viscous and thick, oily. Overall, pretty nice stuff. A bit hot, but tasty.

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.
