MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Distinct vanilla and cigarbox aroma. Black colour. Small stable dark brown head. The flavour is also of good vanilla, quite smooth and creamy. Some smoke in the finish. Late burn, more like alcohol than hops. Flavourful, but well-balanced and very smooth.

SlackerMads (1566) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Tap. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Rum and molasses on the nose. Notes of vanilla, coconut, very light alcohol burn, dark chocolate, sweet licorice. Rum flavors dominating. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium/full body, sticky oily texture, soft carbonation. You like rum? You like big sweet imperial stouts? If yes, this is for you.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 23, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Black pour with a deep dark brown head. Aroma is a beauty - chocolate ganache, fudge, sugar roasted hazelnuts, sugar cane, rum, vanilla, a nice coffee presence that is a lot like cappucino. Amaretto and toasted almonds as well. Really good! Taste is not close to being as smooth and elegant as the aroma, and is surprisingly roasted and bitter - the barrel comes through strongly, a clear alcohol presence in there. Strong toasted notes, black liquorice notes én masse, molasses and a hint of tar. Then a considerable sweetness of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and the spicy rum notes. Aroma and taste are surprisingly different. Body is oiæy and very viscous - lots of sugar left in this baby. Would dig more if it wasn’t as strong on the tarry roasted notes. Really good!

jkwood04 (3878) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Growler poured into a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of rum, roasted malts, a lot of chocolate and coffee, and a little bit of bitterness. Flavor the same with such a great blend of rum and dark, roasted malts. Smooth, oily texture. A great beer with the rum adding a lot to the imperial stout.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
From growler, shared by tom10101. Pitch black pour with thin veil of brown foam. Multi layered aroma, vanilla, molasses, coconut, rum, cake, caramel, fairly dim roastiness, definitely on the sweeter side of things a carribean treat. Chocolaty flavor, roasty acidity, rather dry compared to the aroma, was expecting something a lot sweeter and dessert-like. Palate is silky, creamy, a bit light for an american IS but quite enjoyable nonetheless. Could use more body but an interesting original take on the good ole IS.

Growler 500ml. Pours black with very low brown head. Some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, malt, alcohol, fruits. Taste is of caramel, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Surprisingly "ligth" body.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2013
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, and chilis, leading to a roasted finish.
