4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Thin, nougat coloured head, dark brown with reddish hints in the body. Lots of wood and whiskey from the aging and some vanilla and caramel from the stout. Taste is like a shot of whiskey poured into a stout. A hint of alcoholic burn in the mouth. Body is full, but not too thick. Overall, I really enjoyed this. Spot on.

Pours a dark brown/black color that forms and off white to light brownish head on top. Smells of some roasted maltyness with a definite after aroma of booze!

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Fairly dry palate. Dry wood dominates the otherwise smooth dark malt. Trace of vanilla. Dry finish with a little spice and minerals. Quite aggressively barrelled - US style!

Bottle. Dark brown with thin light Brown head. At first I smelled light dry roast but booze scent takes over. Boost but nicely balanced with dry roast and a gentle sugary sweetness.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Januar bonus @Sørens. Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla and dried fruit, a roasted note and a little sweet licorice. Sweetish malty flavour with licorice, chocolate and dried fruit, bourbon and vanilla oak notes and reasonably drying roasted flavour. Very well balanced for a barrel aged imperial stout

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 11.0%. Best before 13.08.13. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a dark khaki head. Decent lacing. Sweet and roasted aroma with a faint vanilla note and an alcohol bite. Dark fruit note as it warms and a slight berry-like tartness. Flavour is sweetish and dry, with dark fruit and roasted notes, alcohol and a plastic note, the latter diminishing as it warms though. Tart, alcoholic finish with a roasted touch; whisky-like overtone. Lingering dryness and a grassy note. Overall good. Aroma wins by an inch over flavour. 28.12.12.
