beerspammer (97) - - AUG 1, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2019 Pours dark and oily with a thick tan head. So much going on. Coolness from the licorice, some cherry from the cherry bark, bourbon sweetness, vanilla, and booze. Lovely viscosity.

ricke49 (206) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2019 This classic imperial stout remains as good as ever (2017 bottling, sampled in June 2019). Perfect balance of alcohol heat and rich mouthfeel. Sip at 50 degrees for maximum pleasure. In ‘the day’ this was a top 10 BA brew....it still holds up as a delightful sipper.

Mariox (734) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2019 W aromacie bardzo puste, lekko winne nuty, lekkie kakao. W smaku już lepiej, półsłodkie, subtelna kwaskowatosc. Na finiszu alkohol rozgrzewa i dość popiołowe.

BREWMUSKCLES (2998) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2019 like licorice, and ash? Like dark Cherry flavor nicely fruity and moderate in sweetness. Malty and boozy with roasty malt and light medicine. Fuller body smooth and velvety with a transcending lightness. ME too! Big Coffee.

3.9
neongolden (2920) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2019
UPDATED: APR 30, 2019 (650ml 2014 bottle shared @ Nische's tasting, thanks Niko!) Pours pitch black with a decent dark tan head. Notes of very roasty malt with some acidity and ashy component, rather heavy notes of licorice and soy sauce, burnt coffee, touches of molasses, soft bourbon and vanilla, a bit of stewed fruit, a scotch-like iodine bite, lightly to moderately sweet up front but finishing dry and quite bitter with loads of roast, ash and lingering licorice and spirits. Medium-bodied with fairly soft carbonation. Tough to tell what's age when not having had the beer fresh, but the acidic burnt roast and licorice disrupt the balance a little. Neat to try even if maybe better younger.
