gegwilson (2197) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle in the Porterhouse Temple Bar. Pours black with a good beige head. Mild sweet treacle aroma. Searved a little over cold, but the flavour still came through as mild spice with liquorice. Some fruitiness also. Quite high carbonation and a relatively thin body fort he style. Decent beer, but not a great imp.

Bottle. Black, tan head. Roasty, spft slight dry chocolately malty nose. Med full bodied, quite light for the abv, smooth with a dryish roasty soft ashy finish. Flavourful, nice, but feels more just strong stouty than imperial.

TheKernOwl (24) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
It’s a celebration, so… …Nose – break out the dark chocolate / Bourbon biscuits! …Flavour – espresso martinis all round! …Body – Lots richer than Plain Porter or Oyster Stout. Slight salty seawater tang.

Negra opaca, con un par de dedos de espuma, poco densa y color ocre. Aroma fuerte, madera ,chocolate. Toda una experiencia en boca. Textura cremosa y baja carbonatacion. Muy potente. Primero dulce y ligeramente frutal. Dura poco. Pronto la boca se llena de barrica, cacao, en un amargor creciente y muy muy intenso junto con claros recuerdos de whisky. Final ultra amargo. Y calenton de licor. Compleja. Fuerte. Diferente. Potente. Intensa.

brigg (554) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2015
(Bottle) Black body with ruby highlights, small to medium dissipating head. Aroma of candy sugar, bourbon, wine, wood, dark fruit. Flavor is sweet up front, with a very bitter finish; molasses, coffee, bourbon; some pine in the finish; alcohol is very noticeable. Maybe a little unbalanced; bitterness and alcohol kind overpower and stay with you afterward. Medium body.
