Bottle sample thanks to Kraddel. Vintage 2009. Chocolate alcohol aroma. Strong chocolate flavour which is bitter, but softer in the aftertaste. I really like the aftertaste because the alcohol taste and strongness is gone and chocolate remains.

JonMoore (1898) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle 2008 vintage - near black with moderate tan head. Super roast malty, chocolate, dark fruit, sweet malty, milk aroma. Same again in the taste, plus coffee and liquorice, with a long sweet and bitter finish. Full bodied, smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Well hid alcohol, warming on the way down. Very good Imperial Stout.

It’s a dream of a RIS, big bold roasted notes, blended with a warming amount of alcohol. Its medium to full in body, warms as its goes down. Pitch black in color.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Draft many times at Monks, Eulogy, and now Moriartys. Black pour with a full tan head. The standard version has big creamy espresso notes. Liquorice and chocolate as well. Nice full stout. Sweet, but less so than most Imperials. Molasses. Charcoal burnt marshmallows. Thick body. Well blended but not nearly as complex as the barrel aged versions. Still great stuff. Not as refined as the Mikkeller version but bigger and better.

Yorker (1344) - Herning, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a little sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are liquorice, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee - with a bitter finish.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Love it. Rich and thick and bitter and coffee. A little sweet in the first finish, then dry husked malt. So intense. Quite one-dimensional, but when that dimension is this good, I don’t care.

angelkostvo (685) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 29, 2014
Black colour, one finger tan head. Aroma of chocolate, milk, cocoa, ginger bread, toffee, vanilla, rape bananas. Taste is light sweet, a bit bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft to flat carbonation.

Vells (744) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 19, 2014
Not as intense as BA bro, thou very expressive as well. Moderate to heavy roasted maltiness, huge choco presence mixed with quite rough coffee, pleasant caramel, decent hops, vanilla, licorice. Actually this is quite interesting. BA has some positive effects, thou it takes away quite a lot as well.. Sweet with quite intense roasted bitterness. Nice brew. .Would like to sample side by side with BA bro
