GlasgowTAD (37) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Thick black. Small dark brown head. Faint sweet malty aroma. Taste is sweet, bitter and medium calvados - complimentary but not defining which is nice. An easily drinkable beer but Christ on a bike, the strength is nowhere to be found so be careful!

angel77 (984) - oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el momento en el lúpulo el 12-09-2014. (R24)Lote KL 11:55 hasta 28-05-2024. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura que desaparece por completo al poco. Aromas intensos a frutas pasas (uvas )cacao y algo de especias acabando con cierto toque fresco alicorado y de madera empapada de calvados. Cuerpo intenso, muy denso y espeso, casi masticable, con una gran sensación alcohólica de 15 vol que se notan cada vez mas según va calentando. Sabores intensos, a lo bestia, de maltas tostadas,q cacao, algo de café y especias, vainillas, con toques finales, frescos, de maderas empapadas en calvados. Imperial stout bestial densa, casi petroleo con sabores intensos. Para repetir sin duda.

tricksta_p (1137) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, wood, calvados, dried fruits. Flavour is roasty, sweet, with notes of alcohol. Still, the alcohol is remarkably subtle for a beer with an ABV of 15%. Wonderfully balanced and full-flavoured BA Imperial Stout.

Väldigt kraftig i smaken. Rostade toner, russin, mörk chocklad. Tjock och mörk som tjära i kroppen.

@ Basunen 14-08-09: riktig trevlig och mörk doft. Smaken är riktig fin med tydliga brända toner tydlig cognac-fat och en god balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Yorker (1211) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tiny tan head that hardly leaves any lacing. Aroma and flavour are liquorice, calvados, roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate - with a bitter finish.

stoutnick (542) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2014
Motor oil pour with very small tan head. Aroma is dark malt, spirit; good balance between two. As warms fruity spirit rises out more and more. Taste is apple fruity with malt dessert. Sweetness. Abv is crazily well hidden. Smooth finish with a minor bitterness in the mix. Vanilla and lingering spirit finish. Palate is viscous but not quite full bodied. Overall, great imperial stout.
