TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours like oil with an abruptly fading head that lingers in swirls. Amazingly rich chocolate and vanilla aromas with huge complexity, there’s so much to pick up in this. Amazing mouthfeel with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, dates, raisins, and wood. Perfect.

kerenmk (3036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 22, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Stas & Vova. 2014 bottle, 18.5%. Black. Velvety aroma of vanilla, coconut and some wood, a little boozy and vinous in the mouth with raisins and prune. Full body, a little alcoholic finish with coconut flakes.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - APR 21, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Stas & Vova. 2014 bottle, 18.5%. Black. Big aroma with chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some booziness. Sweet flavor with lots of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some alcohol. Full-bodied. Great stuff. Gotta let it sit in the glass for the alcohol to mellow out a bit.

jake65 (2848) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. Very dark brown, near black pour with a thin brown cap. Modest nose is sweet, vanilla and cocoa hints of bourbon. It’s boozy, but not in a bad way. Rich flavors of chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, but not cloying. Over the top at 19.5% ABV, but really really good for what it is. Many thanks to syndicate for sharing this.

burg326 (4314) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Poured a black color with aromas of chocolate and bourbon. Flavors are chocolate vanilla and bourbon. Big sweet, sticky, chocolaty, boozie, and diabetes all in one in a bottle. Split with my father in law one hell of a night cap.

McNeillR (1595) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Thick opaque brown, greasy light lacing. Full on bright boozy, coconut choc and nippy blackberry. There’s a lot but it’s quite a scramble. Bourbon features but lean and sweet beneath a burp of hot, boozy choc. Cloying enough but soft and creamy sweet for all the ABV going on. Finishes eases in some blackberry and dusty cacao linger. A lot, mostly delicious but fairly.

Bottle, Thanks GLASGOWTAD, TAD Tasting
