hackobock (1349) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 (#500) Bottle at Akkurat, 2006 vintage. Pours black with a tan head. Very nice balanced roasted and sweet aroma with chocolate, molasses, licorice, coffee and a slight note of sherry.It’s a bit thin and "falls apart" in the mouth quickly (which makes it easy drinkable compared to heavier stouts, but I would prefer a bit more body). Taste is sweet dark and dried fruits and bitter chocolate, dry bitter chocolate finish.

visionthing (2731) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2013
On tap at Haand ølfestival. Black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits/berries, wine, wood and hints of alcohol. Moderate sweet with a balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Full body. Long aftertaste with notes of chocolate and dark fruits. Delicious sipper. (2013-05-25)

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 15, 2013
17/04/2012 - 2007 vintage bottle shared by Matt (thanks 50belair!) @ Brasserie 4:20. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, leggerissima schiuma color cappuccino. Aroma intenso di cioccolata fondente, caffé, liquirizia, leggera ossidazione. In bocca è meravigliosamente bilanciata, sebbene sbilanciata sul dolce, cioccolata fondente, caffé, ancora una leggera nota di liquirizia sul finale. I cinque anni di invecchiamento gli hanno fatto perdere un po’ di corpo e forse un po’ di carattere, ma rimane una grandissima imperial stout.

humlelala (984) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
(2006 vintage; 10 cl bottleshare courtesy of Mark; HUGE thanks!!!) Pours thick black with a small, tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rye bread, molasses and roasted malt with a whiff of oxydation. Creamy texture, flat, full bodied, with a dark and smooth yet warming finish. Flavour is mostly sweet with the dark fruit, molasses and oxydation coming through and not much bitterness. Probably past its prime but still a great experience.

LarsEngen (363) - Sandvika, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
On tap at Haand Festivalen 2013. 2007 version, last keg. Pours black with a medium very creamy brown head. Aroma is very complex and nice with notes of roasted malts, milk chocolate and coffee. Very silky/smooth mouthfeel, it just glides slowly down. Nice. Low carbonation, full body, low bitterness.

2007 version from tap at Haand 2013, shared with Abemorsten. Poured pitch black with a nice creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted, plenty, also liquorice, chocolate and coffee notes. Smooth mouthfeel, silky and low viscosity, struggling to swallow this nectar, pure pleasure from start till end.

Osprey87 (1694) - WALES - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm. 2006 vintage, poured into tulip. Black, not much head, just a beige ring. Lots of port in the smell. Full bodied and semi sweet. Lots of roasted barley, a bit plasticy, alcohol comes through and is noticeable. Raisins in the finish. No real bitterness. Decent stuff.
