Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 Colour: dark brown with a light brown head. Overwhelmingly complex and very distinct aroma of chocolate, sweet tart, campfire roasted marshmellows. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, wood, sweet tart, some dried fruits, cognac and port. Alcohol is well hidden. Exceptional. Rerate: bottled, thx to caesar. Incredible long, smooth and balanced aftertaste of dark chocolate and dried fruits. Very happy to be able to sample this one again.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2007
Yes!!! Bottle 2006. Rating #1900. Aroma of chocolate, wood, earth, cake, prunes, cognac. Very special and unique aroma. Opaque, black coloured with a thin, brown head. Taste is sweet with some coffee bitterness. Woods, lots of chocolate, some prunes appear in the taste. More cognac than port taste. Very lingering palate. Alcohol is noticeable (duh... 10%) but it gives the beer a nice warming character. Great stuff this is. I hope I can get it more often.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Bottle 2006. Opaque color, short brown head. Aroma of dark chocolat, sweet, oak wood, port, candy. Quite unique to find this combination in a beer. Very strong and complex taste of chocolat, port wine, cognac, slight alcoholic, hint of vanilla. This definitely beats a Westvleteren.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Bottle (2006) from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. To my total surprise this beer was suddenly available in the Netherlands, thank you martinboer for mentioning this! Black appearance, small brown head. Very complex nose, port-notes, wood, malts, fruit (plums) and quite some more stuff i can’t define. Sweet flavour, some cognac notes appear. Alcohol is obviously present. Great mouthfeel and long lasting bitter finish. The combination of flavours is truly unique. Really good.

Sephiroth (66) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Big thanks to those who allowed me to sample this rare brew. It is nearly opaque in my snifter, and has good carbonation all things considered. Big aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. There is some alcoholic heat, along with vanilla and chocolate. There are ripe fruits, oaky tannins, everything is more restrained than in some other BA Stouts. Silky smooth on the palate, and coating at the same time. I wish I had a whole one of these.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 14, 2007
Bottle, 2006 batch, GBBF 2007. Black with a big brown head. Strong on malts, but not overly so, balanced with liquorice, coffee, chocolate coming through. Some hint at its strength, but not offensively. Mouth is excellent, very upfront on the roasted maltiness, balanced with strong dark liquorice tones. Finishes silky and very well balanced, some dryness, complemented on the back of the palate with this wonderful oaky chocolate tone. I hovered over the gravity of giving this a 5 but then thought f*ck it, this is divine. Perfect in every way.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
(Bottled at GBBF ’07; December 2006 brew (10%)) Poured dark with a big off-white head. Scent is full of berries and a hint of malts. Slightly sugary. Dark roasted chocolate scents, cherries, berry fruits... Complex and stunning!

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Thanks to everyone involved in allowing me to sample this fine brew - 2006 bottle - Aroma is very strong oak, vanilla and roasted chocolate malts. Pours black with a small brown head that reappeared upon swirling and left good lacing. Flavor is so delicious. Smooth clean vanilla, oak and dark chocolate blend together perfectly. Alcohol is well hidden. The palate is so soft and smooth for such a strong and flavorful brew. I honestly didn’t want to be my top rated beer, but there is no denying the quality and greatness of this beverage. One word can describe it, amazing.

sprinkle (114) - Arcadia, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Does it live up to the hype? In a word...YES! I wish I could be sipping on this at my local pub! This beer pours pretty black with a little bit thicker deep tan head than the regular Imp. Stout. Rich molassis, smokey, toasty with a hint of alc. but not offputting. Rich chocolate malts, deep tastes of bakers chocolate and slight hazelnut flavors. This brew is pretty round, not the biggest brew but this beer is focused on the finesse and that it has. Very silky with fine tannins and well intergrated oak. Finish lasts for minutes.

pilsnerrogge (2535) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2007
2005 bottle Black with an ok head. Aroma is dark, bitter chocolate with notes of liquorice. Flavour is bitter, oaky, somewhat harsh and salty and in the background lurks a growing honey sweetness. Complex.
