2500. A pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of dark fruits, wood, whisky some alcohol and chocolate. The taste of dark fruits, with dark roasted malt, wood, vanilla and chocolate. Whisky and alcohol notes. The aftertaste is bitter some sweet burny alcohol. gbe75 (134) - ICELAND - SEP 10, 2012
Very interesting imperial stout from Brewdog. Aroma of whiskey, leather and somewhat a roasty caramel. A slight aroma and taste of alcohol. Nice brown and thick head when poured in a small 0,2L glass. Of course black. Slightly sweet and small bitterness, full in body with oily and creamy texture. Simply a great beer from Brewdog. dinkle50 (1530) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Super sweet and smokey. Very sweet taste. Dark pour with good lacing. Coats your mouth. Alcohol is hidden well. Easy drinking considering this is 15% ABV. Theydon_Bois (20228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Tap at Brew Dog Camden - 28/08/12.
Pitch black with a dirty brown head.
The Jura whisky dominates the nose allied to dark roasted malt, mollasses, licquourice and Xmas cake.
Tastes of smokey bacon, earth, medicine, sweet sugars, bitter chocolate and whisky.
Full bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a sweet smokey finish with a little alcohol burn.
Fairly well balanced, certainly in terms of the whisky and the smoke, just a touch to sweet for me! VsXsV (4523) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle at VilleValla Pub. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of whisky, oak, licorice, chocolate, biscuit, vanilla, port, dark fruit and raw sugar. Nice, not that boozy at all. Really showcases the Jura casks well. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of raw sugar, caramel, licorice and oak. Full bodied with medium carbonation and velvety, smooth mouthfeel. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Jura is one of my favourite whisky makers so maybe it isn’t to surprising.

Nice sipper, surprisingly not so sweet for me. sebletitje (10258) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2012
33cl from Dranken Geers, batch 47, BB 15/02/2017. If you are gonna boost your beer to 15% don’t turn into into an overly sugary mess, residual sugar or whatever sweetness is in there just ruin this beer.
Brune foncée, col moyen moka.
Arôme alterne des notes de barrique, et Jura avec un profile de charbon et de cendrier mais qui est dénaturé par des sucres résiduels qui pour moi nuisent à l’expérience.
Palais, sec et boisé, note profonde de tourbe, charbon et cendre. Profile reste malté, chocolaté caramel doux rappelant le toffee et mélasse, cela devient trop pour une personne tellement le côté sucré doux devient presque gênant. Palais est réchauffant suggérant pour moi l’usage de sucre pour booster le niveau d’alcool, dommage, mais est là bien du Brewdog. Dommage, mais pour moi une bière dure à boire seul et que je ne chercherai pas à revisiter. Fini reste huileux, réchauffant avec une brève note d’amertume le tout collant aux lèvres avec tout ce sucre. Foffern (1952) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a pretty black colour with a medium brown head. Could a beer look better? Both aroma and flavour is extraordinary, and is filled with dried fruits, coffee, barbecue sauce, dark chocolate, chocolate truffles and hints of smoke. Wonderful! Has a rich and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Simply a fantastic beer if you love dark and smokey stuff. Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle 0,33l. Pours thick black with tiny brown head. Aroma is oak upfront, sweet whiskey notes, with hints of peat, smokiness. Taste starts with salmiakk, caramel sweetness which is followed by massive pairing of oak and alcohol whiskey notes. These woody notes stick to the tongue and last quite long. Delicious stout, but too much sweetness and wood for my personal taste.
