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 (2755) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6150) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
330ml bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Deep but clear ruby-black with a small tan creamy-fizzy head. Aroma is medium roast, coffee, prune, alcohol, red wine ... and sweet vanilla bourbon. Taste follows, sweeter, less prune, a lot less roast - sourness comes in, boozier too - a little unbalanced (7-). Slick, light body, astringent, weakly carbonated, quick dry oaky/boozy slightly sour finish .... not loving it, but not bad.

jesperhammer (3172) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2012
03-JUN-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish @ Beer", thx Minitøser. Black with lasting creamy brown head. Roasted with chocolate. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, soy. Full but not really as imperial as some but just makes it more drinkable. Sweet, long roasted finish. Fantastic stout.
