Poured from bottle at Cask Pub & Kitchen in London. Aroma of chocolate, berries, and sour. Opened the bottle and brown foam gently rose out of the top. Palate is very light for this high of an alcohol stout. Taste is that of slight sour turning into oak from the barrel aging then that of dark chocolate. Very nice! Spoke with Pete from CASK and he said they aged this in their cellar for 18 months before making it available. Really enjoyed this one! deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Poured a near clear dark brown with a light brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of dark grains and a bit of roasted malts backed by a bit of dark fruits and whiskey. Flavor was similar with a more earthy grain note and a good amount of whiskey in the finish. A bit boozy. fiulijn (20938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Tasting at PapsøHoly (837) - GERMANY - FEB 20, 2011
Dark brown color, almost black; flat, no head. The dark malt aroma is a bit dusty and ashy, with very light alcohol and apples. The body is weaker than expected, for this gravity, with a fairly good of chocolate, caramel and roasted malt combination; the whisky barrel just seems to bring some alcohol in the end. The final is rather short, with semi-sweet chocolate and caramel; the intrinsic strength of the beer is covering some light fermentation flaw.
Bottle. Holy-Gusher Beerman! Took over five minutes to calm down, but was worth the wait! The signature Morpheus yeast dominates the front end, but interestingly enough, the end sip is a mixture of sweet coco, coffee and sour elements. Very nice! Bov (13005) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2011
courtesy of fiulijn - a brutal gushing sadly makes 1dl disappear ... pours a very dark brown cloudy beer; little long lasting beige foam leaving a correct lacework; a fair whisky presence in the nose along with notes of wood, licorice and black chocolate, fairly roasted; full-bodied and with some initial sweetness, a solid harsh bitterness; very long roasted chocolatey and woody finish where the whisky notes, this time, stay in the background

Woody roasty aroma. Deep brown with a thin layer of off white head. Roasty flavor with hints of liqour, but not too complex. A bit thin. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 10, 2011
