larsga (6309) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2012
Smallish brown head. Opaque black body goes deep brownish dark red at edges. Fruity earthy chocolatey aroma with vanilla fudge notes. Dry-sweet nougat chocolate taste with nutty smoky whiskey notes. Fullish body. Mild, but hot mouthfeel. Dryish smoky whiskey aftertaste with chocolatey vanilla fudge and roasted rice notes. Nice. Complex, harmonic, and interesting. (0.33l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

yngwie (14046) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. It’s a clear-looking dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a little touch of whiskey, some vanilla, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee. Booze, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts in the flavor. Some bitterness. Quite dry, yet with a residual sweetness. Lasting finish with chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Nice indeed, but I think I prefer the regular edition. 120915

Pours dark black with a small tan head. Looks thin. Nose is big vanilla, light smoke, soy sauce and booze. Taste is sweet with some good bitter balance and a big some aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, medium body with a big long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle [330ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o garthicus. Pours a very dark brown with an average size diminishing frothy light-brown head. Aroma of chocolate, light wood, dark malt, alcohol, coffee and light hops. Flavour is malty along with alcohol, chocolate, coffee and leafy hops. Average bodied, somewhat-creamy mouthfeel. The barrel-aging isn’t overdone which I like, a very good Stout.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - April ’12. Very dark brown verging on black with a thin tan head. Definate whisky aroma floating on the nose allied to dark roasted malts, dark fruits and a pinch of vanilla and a dash of cocoa. Fairly full in body with a good alcohol burn in the finish. I was impressed by this one!

MotherBrother (763) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2012
Pour dark dark brown, with no head at all. Aroma is of roasted malts, slight coffee, licorice, wood, whisky, vanilla, asphalt(?). Taste is a little sweet upfront, with a dry, bitter and roasty aftertaste. Medium and rather oily body, with a semi-flat carbonation.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours an almost pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, smooth Irish Whiskey, oak, vanilla, tar, ashy and burnt notes, coffee, dark chocolate and dark fruits. The flavor follows the nose, with vanilla, oak, the smooth Irish Whiskey flavor, some subtle alcohol, burnt, tar and ashy notes, dark fruits, dark chocolate and coffee. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty darn tasty Imperial Stout, but a little too boozy.

garthicus (2724) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 14, 2012
Appearance: Pitch black, small but lasting brown head. Aroma: Rich espresso, molasses, blackcurrant, lots of dark chocolate, quite the whiskey notes in there, lots going on. Smells wonderful. Flavour: Wow, quite a big dark fruit flavour at first, stewed winter fruits, lots of coffee, whiskey and chocolate, tons of wood, sweet and sticky mouth feel, alcohol is definitely evident due to the ageing, long sweet molasses finish. Lovely, a real sipper.
