Korsarz (4) - POLAND - MAR 7, 2014 does not count
To jest najpyszniejszy Imperial Stout, jaki piłem! Skosztowałem tego cuda w święta końca 2013 roku i dostarczył mi niesamowitych doznań. Torfowy, ziemisty smak, zapach taki majestatyczny, naprawdę przywołujący wiele skojarzeń... Łyk w ustach rozbudzał kolejne smaki, a w drodze do żołądka piwo nabierało mocy, ktrej nie było czuć zupełnie na początku. Rozgrzewał i rozleniwiał... Dla mnie to mistrzostwo! Rewelacyjne i majestatyczne piwo!

_angst_ (4560) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle bought some place I cant remember. Pours black with a small frothy dark mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is malty with roasted malts, grape juice, peat, dark chocolate, sweetened dark roast coffee, hay, smoked ham, vanilla fudge and charred wood. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, vanilla fudge, peat, low quality scotch, smoke, burnt wood, toffee, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, hay and alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, roasted astringent, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, peat, hay and alcohol. Decent Islay whisky imperial stout.

Bottle. Pours black, with a finger thick reddish head. Aroma is burned malts, grain and leather, as well as some whiffs of cardboard. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is very heavy with burned malts, liquorice, coffee and tobacco.

Botella de 33 cl en el lpulo. Junio de 2012. Lote 016. una gran imperial stout en barriles de whisky de la isla de arran. Cuerpo fuerte con 10 vol que se notan bastante. Sensacin de madera quemada con toques secos de whisky y tostados muy buena. Gran cerveza, para repetir sin duda.

g_georgiou (505) - CYPRUS - JAN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Dark black red body. Small beige head. Aroma reminds me of bourbon or port. Some smokiness. Sweet taste. Oily texture. A bit flat. For 10% alcohol is not overpowering. I like it.

Maxbier (913) - Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Aroma of port and oak. Hint of smoke, prunes, roasted malts, and cognac. Very sweet. Bottled 08/08/08, tasted 12/31/13; definitely aged too long, flat and no hop flavor left.

dlovell2 (1892) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Dark brown with a tan head. Fermented grape aroma with a dark chocolate background. Malty flavor with coffee notes and some dark chocolate flavors. No hops flavor present. This one was a little flat.

MarcoDL (4308) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Ridicilously strong tasting beer. Beer has notes of dark roasted malt and coffee. The whiskey flavors of the barrel aging gives the beer a warm and complex richness. Very good.

Dark brown with beige big head. Nice light chocolate aroma, also wood and alchol. At taste is light sweet and dry, liqueur flavour with long persistence.
