TheKernOwl (13) - 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.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
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 (548) - 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.

kathouse (1256) - Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle. Coffee and roasted barley on the nose. Taste is chocolate and espresso. Medium to full body and plenty of dryness. I think the imperial Irish stout moniker is appropriate. Other than the typical nitro carbonation, this is a full throttle Irish stout all the way. I like it.
