MeadMe (1551) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours deep black with small espresso head. Aromas of dark fruits, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is wonderful. Roasted and chocolately. Light coffee and a touch of raisin. Subtle wood notes with waves of cognac. Medium full in body with a light level of carbonation. Loved it.

marcus (8295) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head and a chocolate aroma. There is a burnt chocolate flavor with a salute to the bourbon barrel. Very intense and tasty.

popery (1781) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
The beer is extremely dark and looks thick. A brown film clings to the walls of the glass where the beer has touched. Thereís pretty much no head. What bubbles I can kick up with some swirling are dark brown. The aroma has a whole bunch of fudgy dark chocolate, firm roast and an oaky vinous flavor from the barrel-aging. Lots of sweet caramel maltiness beneath all of that. Some vanilla and sweet fruitiness. Well-integrated and a good level of barrel intensity. Relatively mild booze for the abv. The taste is sweet and rich. Lots of stout and barrel flavor. Quite a bit of caramel and milk chocolate upfront. Then, it gets more dark chocolate and roast. The barrel is big in the finish. Big cognac barrel in the finish. Feel is thick with some booze burn. Very good stout, but it doesnít justify the high price tag. Still, Iím not really complaining all that much, and it handily beats many very hyped imperial stouts.

larsniclas (6337) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled from Systembolaget Pitch black with a very small beige/orange head. Sweet and oily nose with cognac and oak. Very thick and oily palate. Loads of burnt flavours; dark coffee and chocolate, tar, licorice and sweet,dried fruits. Not much of the cognac in the flavour.

olio (8470) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
25 cl bottle.
Vertical with calvados edition
Pours pitch black color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, some wooden notes, cognac and sweetish caramel. Flavor of dark ripe fruits, roasted malts, licorice, mild acidic green apples and wood. A bit more harsh palate compared to calvados, a bit more complex thought.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
25 cl bottle @ lusikka
Vertical with Calvados
Sweet and quite heavy aroma with licorice, woody notes, cocoa and some smooth cognac. Flavour is sweet with slightly stinging cognac, some slightly salty licorice, herbal notes, alcohol and some rubbery notes. Alcohol comes though and stings, but then again it disturbs just a little. A slow sipper.

lusikka (7624) - 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. Iím not a big fan of cognac but the cognac here wasnít too overwhelming. Great stuff.

tiong (5608) - 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 (7405) - 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.
