Bottle at Papsø. Entered as my rating no. 3900. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. The aroma is heavy roasted with notes of coffee, chocolate and light bourbon. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, chocolate and light tobacco. Very intense and thick. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2011
Entering old rates. 75cl bottle courtesy of degarth. Similaire à sa version normale, mais ici aide par un ajout énorme de bourbon, qui me convient parfaitement. Reste épaisse et complexe en bouche, le tout sur un profile immense de bourbon, à la fois doux/vanille, note boisée de chêne et le tout sur le bourbon. Complexe avec ce qu’il faut de malt grillé, caramel et torréfie pour des notes subtiles de café. beerfleye (2) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012 does not count
Tasty stout. Looks and tastes like chocolate milk. Surpasses old rasputin in class. If you like imperial stouts this is the winner

Opaque black beer, small chocolate coloured head. Silky smooth soft palate. Smooth dark malt, not bitter or roasty. Smooth bourbon with a strong cherry streak and lesser strawberry! Mild vanilla oak. Subtle coffee and a trace of dark chocolate. Smooth finish with a little bitterness kicking in - marries up to the coffee. Superbly balanced and integrated. A belter of an Imperial Stout.
Growler. Pours pitch black with no lace. Aroma is sweet roasted coffee mocha chocolate vanilla dill, nicely fruity. Flavor is fullbodied velvety, good oily mouthfeel, well balanced between the roastiness maltyness and bitter. Long finish of malts sweet roastiness with nice bitter touch.

Bottle. Pours darkest brown with a thin light brown head. Aroam of malt, bourbon, raisin and chocolate. Malt and chocolate flavor with some roastiness before a bourbon finished. Came together really well. Nicely balanced and the flavors all meld very nicely. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2017

Black pour. Loads of vanilla and roast in the nose. Super slick mouthfeel, with loads of bourbon, chocolate and dark roast notes. Stellar
