Draft at ChurchKey. Pours black. Aromas of scotch, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Taste is scotch, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and very subtle tartness. Body is just a bit lighter than medium. Very smooth for 13%, no detectable alcohol.

Botella de 33 cl en casa beni bar. Junio de 2012 de zombier. Una de las primeras imperial stout potentes en empezar a tomar. Alucinante sabor con toques quemados intensos y con final de madera. Cuerpo fuerte y gran sensación alcohólica. Una Grandisima cerveza de la que teníamos que haber pillado mas botellas.

I feel bad because I think it was a bad bottle. Initial pop of the cap shot foam across the kitchen and continued 5 min. Aroma came out funky. Not so peaty, just chocolate. I get a odd metallic flair. Over carbonated. tangy. Something ain’t right. Returning the beer sealed to where it was purchased to inform merchant of bad bottle. Don’t know what to say. I want to drink this, but can’t. I know scotch and the funk I’m getting is NOT a result of the barreling. Very sad. Hope to re rate, but for $42 a bottle this is unlikely. QC is important.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle from the local shop. Popped this one with Beastmaster. A huge gusher from the start. Finally stopped and poured into mini snifters. Pitch black pour with a small dark brown head and no light showing through. Aroma is a combination of sour cherries, roasty chocolate, green apple, peat and scotch whiskey. Yeah, pretty sure it’s not supposed to be like this. Flavor follows with a good amount of peat and roasty chocolate, alongside some sour black cherry and sour apple flavors. Mouthfeel is bold and thick with low carbonation. This is really disappointing. Bottle was a hefty sum to begin with at $43, but now paying that is a travesty. Afraid to pop my Damnation II now. Still drinkable I guess but not a big rich BA stout like one would expect.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s brown with a small head. The nose is roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate. The taste is moderately boozy. Some funky alcohol-steeped wood. Chocolate ice cream. Roasted grain. Full body, soft carbonation. Good.

Un turbinio di sapori incredibili, che dal caffé e cioccolato si diramano lungo strade leggermente vinose-acidule, con strascichi fruttati, fino ad inerpicarsi su per una eroica montagna torbata, dove il sapore amorotico e maltoso del whisky esplode in un marasma estatico di fuochi artificiali. Davvero stupenda!

Black pour with minimal tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and oak whiskey notes. I don’t get any carbonation at all. Flavor is a bit muted without the carbonation in my opinion. Notes of oak and smokey peat. Decent but it could have been much better.

Lot: 032012, 75cl. Poors black, thick light brown head, but disapears quick. The smell is sour, fruit, alcohol. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste is light peated from the whiskey, roasted malts, coffee, chocolat, but still a bit sour. Aftertaste is light peated, coffee and malty. Different from the old 33cl, and not in a good way!
