Black oily with a minimal brown head. Great complex roasted aroma. Wood, alchohol, caramel. All in a very nice balance. Very complex flavor aswell. Salty liquirice, roasted and alchoholic bitterness, great tasty sweetness and a finish you can nip taste for a long time, discovering yet more notes. Great brew.

Bottle. Pours Black with a bronze head. I was a little concerned about this one because I have a history of not caring for Milk stouts. The lactic sweetness is the thing I dont like. This didnt pan out like a milk stout at all. The aroma is potent whisky with oaky vanilla. The flavour is heavily whisky orientated. It’s a sipper. So thick and so delicious. I savoured every drop. The booziness, thickness, whiskey edge and madeirised, burnt sugar sweetness are all elements of my dream Imperial stout. This was a real gem.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with 2cm of rocky dark mocha head. Jesus Lord this looks delicious. Smells like chocolate milk and bourbon, exactly how it should! Oaky vanilla, raisins, soy, chocolate, coffee and booze in the nose. Flavour is smoky chocolate, bourbon, oak vanilla, soy and a warm after taste. 13% is peripheral. Nice thick oily body, lingering raisin, chocolate and bourbon sweetness. Tastes how it smells, which contains a brilliant complexity. This has the ability to be sipped as both a bourbon or a stout, offering a vastly dimensional approach as a unique brew or distilled drop of unlimited deliciousness. Props to To Ol.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with about a finger of deep tan head. Aroma is massive sweet with vanilla, chocolate, tons of dried dark fruit, muscovado, oh, and a hefty dose of bourbon barrel! Taste is peaty with a thick bourbon sweetness. A bit boozy, a bit too sticky, unbalanced. Sadly, taste and body does not deliver on the promise of the aroma and looks...

330ml bottle at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma of moderate whiskey notes, lactose notes, some sweet chocolatey notes, and a bit of residual sugar. Flavour is supremely complex, full of whiskey, lactose notes, cocoa, chocolate, a little coffee and some residual sugar. Amazingly complex, with all the flavours in phenomenal harmony.

Many thanks to Skinnyviking for a 330ml bottle which was shared with Finn back home on Walpurgisnacht. Motor oily pour revealing a two-finger sized, brown-beige head, slowly diminising over a jet black body. Blended smell of black and brown malts, creamy chocolate and subdued alcohol. Fine taste of vanilla chocolate nicely balanced by roasted grain. Lingering ending with warming alcohol and a gentle roasted touch. Full bodied. Velvety in the mouth. Perfect sipper on an eve like this (Tromsø, 30.04.2013).

Black with foamy head. Aroma is roasty. Taste is boozey, roasty and whiskey flavour. Overall, good sweet stout, but bit too noticeably boozey for me.

pitch black. Very moderate aroma, some hints of cask, but malty and some spices as well. Surprisingly smooth, well masked, whiskey is just subtle, long sweet but malty finish. Good stuff.

wow this is intense. This thick black stout has a smokey taste of coffey, caramel, spicy and just overall intense taste that lingers. The 13-something percent is well hidden in loads os flavour and aroma. Really nice but intense brew, that makes the next beer taste watery.
