Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
In bottle, thanks Dan. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair tan head. Aroma of ice magic chocolate topping, caramel and oak. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Not bad.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle at cgarvieukís courtesy of Stephanos - thanks! Deep brown/black, slightly bubbly beige head. Big oaky alcohol nose, slight creamy chocolate underneath, soft whiskey notes also. Sweet chocolate syrup front, slight whiskey again, strangely artificial, slightly salty perhaps. Creamy mouthfeel, slightly boozy whiskey on the finish. Interesting.

Ungstrup (30746) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2012
Bottled. A very dark brown beer with a red shine under a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, whiskey, roasted malt, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, whiskey, wood, and a bit of soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours deep brown/black with a tan head that leaves a hint of lace. Thereís definitely a whiskiness to the nose with some subdued roasted coffee and stewed fruit. Thereís an antique woodiness there too Iím digging a lot. The booze is quite well hidden. The booze comes out on the palate but only as a warming and drying agent. This is certainly a toned down imperial stout but Iím liking it a lot. Thereís a coffee feel right up front that gives way to the booze and licorice. The finish lasts for about 7 weeks and keeps rolling over itself.
