Smells of delicious cherry brandy. Taste of coffee & cherries with slight carbonation leaving a tingle on the tongue. The warmth you get afterwards is very much like an excellent cognac. Rated by BrewTom

Unde (985) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Really dark brown color with cinnamon colored head on top. Roasted malts, salty licorice and herbal hops. Roasted malts some warming alcohol and oak flavors with perhaps some tannin. Really thick and full mouth feel. At the end cyrup like sweetness combined with drying roasted flavors. Complex stout which hides the high alcohol content nicely.

angelkostvo (1218) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 5, 2013
Black color, tiny head. Aroma of nuts, coffee, bitter chocolate, whiskey, cask, coconut, anise, cinnamon, vanilla. Taste is medium sweet, quite complex. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft to flat carbonation. Amazing

minihame2 (566) - 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 (1905) - 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.

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 (1783) - 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 (1604) - 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.
