Bottle bought at De Molen in November 2010. (bottle number was 209)
Black with a small tan head. Very nice aroma and taste of wood, roasted malt and some whisky. Also dark chocolate and licorice. Thick body with a pleasant mouth feel. An excellent beer, how nice that I bought two bottles.
Perfect beer to enjoy slowly. Skinnyviking (9584) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle. High but quickly disappearing brtown head. Pitch black body. Creamy coffee choccolate liquorice aroma. Coffee choccolate liquorice flavor with a hint of whisky and a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2010
De molen black Jack. Small nip bottle consumed at de molen... Pours a
dark cola brown, almost black, with a reddish tinge as you work
towards the outer rim. Little to non-existent head, more so a thin
ring of light beige film... Bourbon or whiskey woody nose with a
little peat, tobacco, and some bitter dark chocolate... Flavors are an
amalgamated combination of woodiness, chocolate, peat, and a soft
smoke. Sweet through the beginning and middle moving to a bittering
finish. Alcohol hits mid-palate and through the finish. Fairly warming
all around. Closer to thin than medium bodied. Carbonation provides

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 Bottle @ home. Deep black pour, medium brown head.
Aroma is huge peat, liquorice, salmiak, wood, whisky, more peat, hint of coffee and more. Very intense.
Flavour is peat, wood, whisky and some liquorice, medium bitter, lightly sweet. Medium to light palate, lingering for quite a bit.
Another nice one. Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2010
(Bottle, #1236/1560) Pitch black colour with huge, foamy, fairly brief, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of liquorice, vanilla, strong black coffee, oak wood, dark fruit and hints of ashes. Slightly vinous. Roasted, malty, slightly vinous taste with liquorice, dark chocolate, sweet espresso, dark fruit and ashes. Vinous finish with oak wood, vanilla and a solid coffee bitterness well integrated with the rest of the flavours. Full body, fairly sweet with balanced hints of warming alcohol. Excellent wood ageing where the wood is always present but never dominant. Impressive and absolutely lovely. thewolf (12629) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2010
Pours utterly, completely black with a firm, staying, lovely, creamy, brown head. Lovely looks for an Imperial Stout. Aroma is mildly vinious, lots of oak, roasted malts, light astringency. Dark chocolate edge. Low carbonation, light and fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of vanilla, mild roasted malts, dark chocolate. Quite sweet with the vanilla dominating, but with a firm malty bitterness with hints of dry cocoa-powder at the end. Mildly warming viniousness. Lovely.
(Bottled) Roasted-burned coffee, licorice, oak, whisky. Way too burned flavor for the syrupy sweetness to rescue. Whisky cask is clearly present with all its tannins. With an impy this burned, though, the tannins just take the burnedness into a higher level. Not balanced or very enjoyable for an 12.5% impy, IMO - but I didn’t love the Struise Black Jack, either. 5557 BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2010
