Pours realy black and oily. I say black! Brown head. Full nose of berriefruits, strong coffie, chocolate. Starts with dark chocolate sweetness, not so strong as expected, more smooth but heavy and oily, slightly drinkable! The 13% alc are totally hidden. Malt hints in the second row. More fruity coffie to the end. Great one! Big thank you to kappldav123 for this experience.

2012 vintage, pours pitch black with a thick brown head with tons of lacing in the glass, aroma still had a good amount of bourbon and oak that comes through with vanilla as well, flavor has a hit front end with a good amount of roast and chocolate, bourbon shows as well, thick mouthfeel, worth the wait to get to try this.

Tasted at home and "The Hoppy Pub". What can I say about this beer! Full of chocolate, vanilla, wood and of course bourbon! Black colour with nice brown head. Excellent aftertaste of chocolate and coffee. Definitely one of my favourites!

Bottle thanks to RasmusOtt. Many years ago i had this! Pours a nice, pitch black with a small, brown head. Aroma is nice and roasty, some yeasty vinous stuff, coffee, dark cocoa powder. Taste is very smooth. Pretty sweet up front. Gets more roasty bitter and with some licorice. Slight red vinous tartness, organic, malty sweetness. Full body, but well hidden alcohol, medium carbonation.

Bottle vintage 2012. Aroma is strong chocolate, caramel and slight tobacco. Very pleasant. Head formation is ok regarding the high ABV, probably help by the high carbonation level (for the style). The beer appears totally black with a nice brown head. Taste is reflects the aroma and sweetness, dark fruits, raisin. The alcohol content could be better hidden to me. This would be the only " " " issue " " " with this beer. Overall, fits pretty well what I’m expecting from an Imperial Stout. You can find it at very decent price (less than 4€ if I’m right) and it blasts other very hype and expensive stouts (from Brewdog, Mikkeller etc) so if you’ve a chance, go for it, chances are you won’t be disappointed.
