75cl, as Marshal Zhukovs Imperial Stout Barrel Aged 2010, recently retired exclusive American brew, thx alot to Johan for sharing!, very complex sweet Stout, roasted/alcoholic and slightly spicy/fruity, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, very good brew Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a viscous, deep black color with a red tan head. Aroma has a ton of dark fruit, brandy, light chocolate, light cigar and a very hefty alcohol bite. Flavor is extremely complex. Flavor starts off with a very hefty cigar and brandy flavor. This smoothly transitions to a chocolate syrup flavor and finishes with more smooth brandy, licorice and caramel maltiness. The body on this is probably the heavies I have ever had. You can almost feel the grains of sugar in the beer. Almost zero carbonation accentuates the feeling. Overall a VERY good beer. Almost two heavy for one person to enjoy a whole bottle by themselves as you feel like you may go into sugar shock. This is the way imperial stouts should be!

Pitch black used motor oil. No head. Aroma is cigar tobacco and boozy barrels. The flavor is Deep oaky chocolate with cigar tobacco. Rich palate is super thick and a touch boozy. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured inky black with not much head. The aroma picked up licorice and ashy malts with plenty of roast.. strong vinous notes and a touch of bourbon around.. peppery on the back of the nose. The flavor found cocoa, licorice, and lesser vinous notes at the core.. toasted oak, vinous notes, and peppery notes around.. finished sweet and a touch tangy with full belly warmth. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation.. kind of slick on the palate.. ok feel.
