Beer4000 (4323) - Kristiansand, - JAN 29, 2013
250 ml bottle. A black body with a thin brown head. Aroma is a bit milder than expected, still quite obvious. Roasted malt, coffee, dry fruit, wood and alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, rather alcoholic, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, dry fruit and wood. The body feels probably lighter than it really is, but it feels OK as it is. Aftertaste is same as the main taste and stays along. Overall this beer surprises me a bit. The Imperial Stout flavor is somehow somewhere in the background and the flavor from the barrel feels rather boozy but not too typical whisky or whatever, its more wood and alcohol in general. Takes a few sips to get used to it, not unpleasant but I prefer the original Imperial Stout.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours cloudy very dark brown with rich, stable tan head. Dark aroma of malt and caramel, with notes coffee and chocolate. Alcohol and fruit in the long nose. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and coffee, with notes of liquorice and dried fruit. Warming alcohol presence. Bittersweet, lingering aftertaste. Very nice, indeed.

dj (471) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle, 250ml, from a Vinmonopolet in Oslo. A jet black colour with a huge brown head. Aroma of burnt malt, hay and black treacle. Flavour is coffee, black treacle, burnt malt plus some fresher malted barley notes. Some alcohol is evident. Moderate bitterness in the finish along with more black treacle. Not a fan of the burnt flavour in this.

abstractbeer (237) - NORWAY - MAR 25, 2014
2014-03-25. Black. Large, chocolate brown, rocky head. Aroma is chocolate, licorice, salty sea, tar, wood. A slight hint of red berries on the edges. Very full body. Livelier carbonation than I had expected. The flavor follows the aroma, but with additional notes of roasted nuts, coffee, ash, and a hint of parmesan cheese. Loooong lasting aftertaste. A little acidic. A little bitter. Not much sweetness to find here. Beautiful, but not perfect.
