2012 bottle. Black pour with a fast disappearing brown head. Complex aroma and taste here, at various points I’m picking up liquorice, cocoa, black coffee, dark chocolate, soy, dark fruits, raisin, toffee, roasted malt. Full body. Damn was this delicious!

#1000, thanks a lot to mrhangover for this one!! At Nieuwjaarsborrel. Aroma is super rich. Lots of caramel, chocolate, port, licorice, red fruits and roast. Pretty sweet and some bitterness. This beer is so full of flavour, insane. Could not have wished better for my 1000th rating. So freaking good.

Dark near black pour with a light brown head. Aroma has many layers, nutty roasted malts, dark sweet fruits, and some booze. Taste is big, and bold...dark fruits are the most predominant taste to me, the roasty and toffee flavors take a back seat. This beer is really good, and gets better as it warms up. 2013 hell demon bottle

This is my ideal Imperial Stout taste profile - lighter on the coffee and cocoa bitterness in the finish. Lots of activity and burn in the nose, which works well. Very slightly raw and rough around the edges, but I expect that’s from its freshness. My circumstances weren’t ideal for a in-depth analysis, so I’d like to try this again next year.

Creamy, dark, slight bourbon and nut nose but dark chocolate, toffee and cream flavor. So damn delicious.
