yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2011 Bottle, kindly provided by KnutAlbert. 10% ABV. A reddish, very dark brown body under a tan head. The aroma is a lovely blend of chocolate, coffee, licorice, malt extract alcohol and notes of oxidation. The flavor is even more lovely, with the same elements found in the aroma as well as a nice bitterness and a slightly more obvious oxidation note. The finish starts hoppy bitter, but soon turns coffee bitter. A beauty. (081031)

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 Bottle Pigs Ear BF. Black colour with tan head. Intense choc/coffee aroma, but a broad level of aromas, not tight. Beautiful condition and intense lovely choc/coffee. Stunning. Great beer. I like most of the Porterhouse beers and this is another good one.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2007
Pours black with tiny head. Nice burned aroma with coffe, chocolate, liquerice and burned rubber. Good burned flavor but unbalenced with perfurmed and bitter finish.

FatPhil (9647) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 29, 2007
500ml bottle (Porterhouse, Dublin) Thick black, tight bready head. Sweet dark fruit - plums and cherry - aroma, coffee and malts too. Sticky burnt taste - coffee and treacle. Some bitterness too - good complex mix, very well balanced. Quite subtle for a 10%.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2007
500 ml bottle. Dark brown black beer with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very flinty and minerally. Lots of earthiness and a little bit of woody character as well. The flavour is very British, leanish body for the style with earthy hop flavour and a minerally bitterness. Very roasty without any supporting dark flavours (i.e. no coffee, caramel, or chocolate). A hint of licorice. Dry, roasty finish. A light peppery ethanolic flavour adds a bit of complexity. It’s probably the most unique imperial stout I’ve had to date and it’s quite good in it’s own way.

3fourths (8241) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Brown with deep red hues at the edges. Very clear, though very dark, so I’m not sure if it’s filtered or not. Peppery, slightly oxidized, old battery nose, yes it smells a little bit like old batteries, with a metallic twang up the nose and all, it’s a little hot in the nose as well, with some liquer-like chocolate and cherry and sweet bourbon, along with a dark fruit note. Rich texture, not exactly full, but rich and resinous, oily perhaps, with a bigger dose of green apple than it should have, but primarily tasting like a chocolate liquer, lightly spicy, and again a little too boozy with a lack of body. Call me the odd man out, or maybe I was just really drunk at the time. But I drank this nearly along side the Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 5 and this one came up short. Still need to send a huge thanks to garthicus for bringing it over from Ireland for us to try.
