minihame2 (526) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Slick, black and oily body. Thick tan head. Aroma has roasted malts and some chocolate. Taste is soft but bitter, lingers for a while. Its an OK imp. stout but nothing special.

haukur (1841) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle, Brewdog Teku glass. Pitch black, very small head. Light brown coloured film. Deep oaky aroma, huge whiskey notes. Some burn. Some sweetness followed by a slightly bitter burn. Not very roasty but more into the sweetness, which I like. Highly drinkable considering the abv. Delightful imperial stout, and something I could imagine would be very suitable on a autumn night in Scotland, looking into the breezy Atlantic ocean.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle 33 CL. Pours black with brown head. Notes of rye bread, yeast, sweet. Abit disapointing needs more character and taste. Alcohol very well hidden tho.

Foffern (1704) - Bod, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is deep brown to black and with small light brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, liqour, and chocolate truffles. Compact and balanced. Has a powerful flavour with much of the same but in addition licorice, oak and nice roast in the end. The mouth feel is rich and slick, and has a medium bitterness. Is well-balanced, round and good.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
On keg at Brewdog, pours jet black with a small tan head. Good well balanced malty chocolate stout with an added texture of the whisky on the tongue. Good stuff.

leaparsons (10054) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. Near black with a beige foam. Aromas are raisins and marzipan with damsons and herbal notes. Dark chocolate with strong yet mellow whisky barrel. Smoked ham with floral aspects and mixed spices. Lightly roasted coffee with toffee. Flavours are sweet, plummy fruit with marzipan alcohol and fudge. Roast coffee with toffee and raisins. Peppery with earthy notes and lemon. Spicy with obvious yet warming alcohol. Damned good.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Keg at Brewdog. Black pour, thin head. Definite vanilla ice cream, raisins, softest BBQ smoke nose. Fairly sweet (much much sweeter than the old Arran batch), rum n raisins, soft smoke, white chocolate, warm booze and a hint of roast on the finish. Medium oily body, soft carbonation. Decent.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Leeds. Pours a pitch black, small mocha head that fades. Aroma is vanilla/oak/whisky, some raisin, peat/smoke, hot chocolate. Taste is good too and a bit more complex - rum-soaked raisins, vanilla, pray, smoke, some slight coffee. Medium-full body, lovely lingering bitterness. It is good, but I dunno, it seems to be missing something, probably the complexity Id expect from a 15% imperial stout.

maneliquor (3493) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2013
Tap at BrewDog Camden. Pours black with a small lightly tanned ring for a head. Nose shows heavy, sweet white chocolate, light whisky, heavy vanilla, raisins. Definitely for the sweet tooths out there. Taste is white chocolate covered almonds and raisins. Very sweet and chocolatey with dark fruits and light nutty tones. Booze is hidden nicely. Bitter sweet finish. Lengthy. Really good stuff
