COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An imperial stout brewed with cacao and coffee, AB:22 has spent two years in darkness, drawing complex and indulgent flavour from the Speyside whisky casks in which it has resided: chocolate ganache, cold-brew coffee, vanilla pods, molasses, chocolate-covered raisin, fudge sundae, espresso martini, toasted coconut… this is one of our most intense and decadent barrel aged stouts, ever.

TBone (18373) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Bottled 375ml (from BD)

Opaque colour, small brown head. Sticky roasted coffee aroma with whiskey. Full-bodied. Toasted malty, vanilla (fudge), whiskey and cacao in the flavour. Sweetish, hides alcohol quite well. Nice BA stout.

sharky2kx (23) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Pours like tar with a brown head. Reminds me of cocoa psycho but with more oomph and flavour.
The nose is the standard oak and dark cocoa affair. Salty and sweet. Aniseed and Turkish delight. Almost vegetal.
The taste and palate are legendary. Absolute perfect mouth feel and an evolving taste. Bittersweet cocoa, sea salt, spicy oak, butter, the Turkish from the nose, liquorice, peat and tannins with fragrance.
It starts off tasting bitter, but the flavours develop over time like a good whisky.
Highly recommended imp. Almost perfect. Almost.

Ktwse (5596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2017
Pours black with tall deep tan head that drops quickly. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, muscovado, liquorice, peats, light ancho chilli. Taste is chocolate, coffee, chilli, sweet boozy finish. Rich and creamy body with soft carbonation.

Marko (6163) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 1, 2017
Thanks Martin! Quite black. Pungent, really pungent complex malty aroma, classy, mostly dried figs, sweetish. The taste is full, with very well integrated whisky barrel notes, great maltinesss, more figs, heavy and clean, ends like "griotte" - pralines filled with cherry liqueur, showing off an interesting fruitiness, but light alcohol too (quite okay for 12.5%). Fantastic body, simply a tasty, well made imperial stout.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - NOV 27, 2017
Pretty sure I'd already done a review for this but alas not - d'oh! Consumed at the beginning of November to cap off the events of the 5th; went down well after a fireworks display. Opening the plastic/wax seal was a total nightmare, I'll be honest with you. Once opened, I treated it like a spirit and drank it in five or six small glasses. It clings to the glass like tar. Yes, it is very boozy but the flavours are simply out of this world. BrewDog do excellent stouts and this bizarre variety is no exception.

4.1
Maracuja05 (1865) - Mainz, Rineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2017
10-09-17 // draft, tasting paddle at BrewDog Shoreditch. Deep black. Heavy sweetness, very malty, roasted malts, coffee, cacao, mild Whisky Barrel. Boozy.

2.5
adamnowek (3399) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2017 Jet black. Spotty, bubbly, mocha-coloured head. Aroma is cheap whiskey and regret. Tastes like alcohol and charcoal. Excessively boozy. More proof that ‘imperial’ is almost never synonymous with ‘good.’

3.8
Speko (483) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle 0,375. Pours pitch black with large beige head. Aroma of molases, coffee, raisins, chocolate, some whisky, faint fudge and vanilla. Taste is coffee, cocoa, wood, whisky, alcohol is noticeable. Frll body, oily texture, soft carbonation.
