henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2008
2005 - Black, black body with a creamy brown head; Incredible nose, complex deep and incredibly balanced, indescribable amounts of notes in a perfect balance, VERY rarely seen alike; Super soft, full velvety body, amazing but not perfect, it has a fine sour touch but it doesnt seem to fit perfectly with the soft texture and the slight sweetness; Long finish with much of the same as the main body, both its good and its bad. Some of the old school UK touches are there and I love them! Thanks..

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2008
Bottled @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2008. Black as pitch with a small tan head. Really wonderfull and well balanced with notes of smoke, caramel, coffee, chocolate, burnt malt, wood and a hint of vanilla.

Pitch black color, small tan head. Oaky vanilla aroma. Licoricey, vanilla, some fudge, oak. Very nice liquerish palate. Some alcohol in the finish.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Huge thanks to Magic_Dave for this one. Thanks, Tom. The beer pours black but holds a few ruddy dark brown highlights. The head looks like a tiarimisu/parfait affair with discernible layers in its thumb thick mocha coloring. The aroma is pretty woody with a lot of vinous, whiskey and dark fruit notes. Mild vanilla and pineapple notes appear as well. Very thick mouthfeel, but a somewhat mild flavor profile. Nothing burns with alcohol or bites with bitterness. It is soft, fat, round and chocolaty. Certainly, there is some strong alcohol, but it blends nicely and reminds me of a chocolate liqueur. Gets a little hotter with alcohol and whiskey notes and sweet plump ripe dark fruits. Very refined and nuanced. Doesn’t hit you over the head and in fact may have the smoothest finish of any Imperial Stout I have had. Certainly that I can recall. It’s very nice for sure and I suspect I might like it more NOT aged in the oak barrels.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2008
Bottled. Black colour, small beige head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, wooden sourness, some chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is the same along with some warming alcohol feeling as well as mild coffee in the finish. A very balanced brew.

Marko (3922) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 10, 2008
RBESG08 Grand Tasting
Black body. Coffee and bourbon in the nose, very sweet malty taste, bourbon and chocolate again I guess. The taste wasn’t flashy but I thought that it was great anyway.

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Black as night, beige head. Evident vanilla and oak aroma with cocoa and coffee underneath. Fairly sweet with full body. Careful soft chococlate and coffee flavour. Quite reminiscent of Kaggen, but with more oak and sweetness. Less salty licorice and more oak than in the regular version. Very well made.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle from our Mes, good work lad. I couldn’t write a rate that would do it justice. Dark brown with a head the colour of a crunchie bar left in the sun. Complex and shit kickingly tasty, Loved it.
