DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Hearty dark brown pour with a brown finely bubbled crown. Aroma is sweet and roasty, and the flavours present a nice balance between the sweet vanilla/rye barrel traits and the bitter hard roasted malts. Creamy texture, full bodied. Very nice.

ciaranc (914) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 17, 2012
Pour is brown black with a fizzy tan head that quickly disappears. Roasted malt, toffee, irish whiskey, oak and coffee in the aroma. Mouthfeel is slick, with a hint of carbonation in the body. Quite a heavy body. More warming Irish whiskey in the flavour, with some background burnt malt which works very well. Finish is long and lush, with lots of lovely warming alcohol. Very nice.

Gr0ve (2141) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2012
330 ml bottle. Glossy black. Small light beige head. Oaked wooden aroma. Intense vanilla. Soft velvety texture. Rich malty caramel flavours. Silky. Burnt wooden flavours that meld nicely with the sweet malts. Could have used a little more carbonation, but this is a very nice beer.

erickok (3696) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 1, 2012
Deep brown body with tan bubbly lace. Very pleasant and refined barrel ageing, white chocolate, muesli and sweet roasted notes. Interesting flavour, starting with a real sweet liquor balanced by a beery dark malt base. Barrel ageing can make beers watery or boozy, but nothing of that in this interesting yet very tasty treat. ABV is very well hidden. Looks good, smells good, tastes great! (33cl bottle, traded with Leighton, thanks!)

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2012
Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is sweet wood, liquorice, mild tobacco and mild nutty notes. Flavour is liquorice, toffee, mild ashes, tobacco and some slight notes of alcoholic sweetness and tar as well. Mild vanilla. A bit sticky sweet, but otherwise quite nice.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
Holy crap...what a brew. The nose is simply a mark of magnificence with a huge barrel and woody presence, earthen notes, robust roasted malts. A hint of vanilla with some chocolate and whisky notes. Probably one of the best smells ever. Pours a nearly opaque black with a thin tan head that dissapates quickly to nothing. Big booze legs with a bit of bubbles popping on the surface. Sweet and rich middle with barrel flavours bursting...vanilla, spices, chocolate. A bit syrupy with no carbonation. The finish is super robust and astringently roasted. Big whisky notes, booze and a ton of roasted notes overtake the palate. Overall, simply magnificent.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
330ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a vigourously poured finger of light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some chocolate and roasted notes. Taste is a big raisiny and chocolate sweetness with a hint of alcohol and light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Nicely balanced flavors leaning toward the sweet but still a very well done impy stout. Highly recommended.

Gethinbeer (2172) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Deep black liquorice colour with an off white head and lace. Fruity, raisin and chocolate malt aroma.Caramel, coffee and roasted malt flavour with hints of whisky and vanilla. Syrup texture with a fiery finish.

Camons (6094) - Hasselager, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle @ Jacob. Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, oak, vanilla, light whisky. Flavour of malts, chocolate, coffee, strong notes of whisky and oak, vanilla, booze. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice but abit to dominated by the barrel agening. 280912
