dinkle50 (1134) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Black pour with no head. Viscous like oil. Aroma is very sweet. Hints of orange, dark chocolate and wood. Huge thick mouth. Kind of like drinking milk. Taste is full of fudge and oak, a little fruit. Very tasty. Alcohol is super hidden. Big time chocolate and super rich.

Backlog rating. 26cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet, boozy and roasty, with notes of cocoa powder, cedar wood, toffee and vanilla. Taste is quite intense on the sweet boozy notes of cognac, with also dark chocolate, roasted malts, wood and citrus. Quite full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, tasy, a bit boozy

Cam_Dynamite (100) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours black with minimal head but leaves some nice tan lacing. This is almost the best smelling beer I've had. Dark fruits and warm syrupy booze. Taste is complex - chocolate, tobacco, fruits, ash, vanilla and pretty subtle booze for mine. I fucking love it

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Black velvet. No head. Chocolate aroma. Boozy dark fruits and a BA bite, subtle though. Rich milk chocolate. Somewhat dry on the end. Luxuriousness liquified.

Homer321 (2768) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
bottle to snifter. pour is a thick, dead flat black. Nose is slightly fruity but mostly chocolate. light cherry. Taste is initially very sweet and viscous. some light pepper that I think is the alcohol. light apple as it warms. ok, but not great.

Saeglopur (1055) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 5, 2014
250 ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop.
Pitch black body, with a tiny, dark brown, creamy head, that disappears quickly.
Full, complex aroma of cognac, barrel, coffee, melting dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, booze.
Taste isn’t less amazing, with dark chocolate, roasty dry coffee, nuts, sweet dark fruits, smoke, cognac, wood.
Thick, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation and it finishes dry, roasty, alcoholic and with long-lasting, smooth barrel notes.

Really delicious! Complex, heavy and filling, so that this small quarter liter bottle is just enough. Overall an amazing, challenging beer, but there are even some better Imperial Stouts by Mikkeller in my opinion.

kbudd19 (890) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle. Thick black pour, boozy lacing, with a small layer of milk chocolate head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is oak, vanilla, rum soaked raisins, and coffee roast. Taste is rich dark chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, light sweetness, sticky coffee roast finish. Very decadent, better than the calvados but not by much.
