Bottle @ Himmeriget. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma has nice and sweet bourbon, toffee cinnamon, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon rolls, vanilla and lots of spices. Wow! The taste has the chili heat, cinnamon, big chocolate notes, vanilla, sweet bourbon, roasted malts, caramel, weak coconut and cocoa beans. The barrel here is so freaking good! Love this!

MotherBrother (910) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2016
Pour jet black, with a small mocha brown head. Aroma is packed with bourbon vanilla goodness, cinnamon, slight chili heat, plenty of chocolate fudge, brownie dough, coconut, booze. Taste is pretty darn sweet, faint bitterness with a bit of heat (chili and alcohol) Medium - slight watery bodied with a rather flat carbonation. Deffinitely great stuff.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Pour is black with brown edges. Nose is sweet, dark malt, berry sweetness, a hint of roast. Taste has more sweetness, a good bit of burning whiskey, strong hot spice in the finish. Malts are rich and big, body is full with strong carb. Overly sweet on the finish. Heat is strong as well from the spice on the finish.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours pitch-black with a tiny, khaki, creamy head. The bouquet is a luxuriant swirl of dark chocolate, cinnamon, leather, dark berries and clean ethanol. Full-bodied and fatty with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a sweet mug of cafe con leche with a good amount of chili pepper flavor and heat. Lengthy, soul-warming finish. World class beer! Bottle courtesy of Elliesbrown, who stiffed me on the other two barrel-aged versions.

Bomber to taster (shared with Dogbones, LitoIPA, the Mrs., and others). Looks good; an opaque dull black with foamy tan head. Smells great! Dark malt, chocolate, oak, bourbon, and a bit of spice. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel that’s a little hot, but likely from the pepper. Fantabulous!!!

Poured dark black from the bottle with aromas of chocolate, earth, light spicy pepper, some roast and light bourbon. Flavors follow suit chocolate, light pepper some bourbon and booze, a solid imperial stout that I could enjoy all day.
