UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Oily black beer with big bubbled head on top, smallish lacing attaches to the sides. Aroma has milk coffee, cream, bourbon, some berries, sacher-cake. Taste has milk coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon, wooden flavors and cream. Very oily body and medium-to-high carbonation. Well this is it, at least for me this has everything I look for in a bold Imperial Porter. I’m going to increase my score from 4,8 to 4,9. If only the head would’ve been more pleasant to the eye this would’ve been a straight 5/5 beer. Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
Tasted at Øl&Akevittmessen in Stavanger. Black in color with a frothy head. Aromas of strong vanilla, roastiness, oak. Flavors of chocolate, nice malt sweetness, chocolate, oak and faint burbon. Fullb body. Smooth to drink. A really good beer! 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
50 cl. bottle sampled courtesey of ClubGonzo and Inbreak. Bottle nr. 275. BBF 23/10/2013. Light ruby hue, blackish, little to no beige head. Thick liquorish and molasses in the nose, creamy charred whisky barrels, sweet thick, chocolate, thick goo caramel,… Taste is thick syrupy, creamy charred whisky barrels, bourbon-esque goo, thick creamy chocolate, vanilla and thick malts, light caramel dark fruits, oddly same creamy and touch too light. Still this is very, very excellent. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2012
This brew is rich. Pours almost black with a shallow head that recedes slowly and dissipates. Strong aromatics push boozie dark malt afore leaving nothing to the imagination. Rich in texture with soft carbonation. Sweet with defined whisky essence. Grab a cigar and sip this beer slowly. Phenominal!

YES. Deep black color, creamy tan head though not much lacing on the glass. Rich dark chocolate aroma, cigar tobacco, bourbon. Taste up front is a little boozy, a little sweet but not cloying. Tobacco, whiskey, bitter chocolate, something like fig, more whiskey. Again, it is boozy but in the best sense of the word. Roast bitterness in the finish. Lots going on here, very well blended. Sip slowly and enjoy one of the finest porters you are likely to experience. bytemesis (8397) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a medium brown head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, whiskey, oak. Flavor is the same, medium sweet with obvious whiskey notes and just a bit of bitterness on the finish. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth. Warming finish, just a bit boozy. This is a great beer that hits all the notes well; the only thing I can think of to improve is perhaps a different barrel treatment Inbreak (6025) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 Old rating rerated 25.12.2013, 0,5l bottle (1st batch bottle #267) @ home:Pedro_Pinho (242) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2016
Small brown slightly bubbly longlasting head. Aroma is very rich and balanced, raw licorice, mild bourbon, dark sugar, caramel, dark malts, vanilla, espresso, cocoa, oak. Taste is very rich and velvety, slightly sweet, licorice, dark malts, dark sugar, mild bourbon, chocolate, sour coffee, oak, caramel, vanilla. Medium to longlasting bitterness, thick sticky mouthfeel. Very nice, close to perfection.
Also had a bottle of a fresher third batch after the first one. The aroma is very neutral and kind of dry oaky. The taste is more in the same direction as the first one, but not as rich, and more dry oaky. The score would end at 5-4-7-4-12=3,2. A brief shadow of the first batch sadly.
Just amazing! Complex imperial stout, aroma of dark chocolate with loads of vanilla and bourbon. Smooth taste, low carbonation. The vanilla and bourbon taste really coming through. Warm alcohol and wood aftertaste. Would be even better in slightly smaller bottles. Turtles (2653) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2016
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a tanned head. Now first the aroma, this is s treat, Jack D, vanilla, sherry, cherries, hints of chocolate and smoke. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Rich taste of oak, bourbon, vanilla, cherries, cigar smoke, chocolate. Warm but not strong finish. Great!
