Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, roasted malt, soy sauce, and wood, leading to a dry roasted finish. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2010
tiny bottle, Vielen Dank, Bierkoning! Deep black colour, no head. Impressively complex aroma. Dark malts, caramel, toffee, whisky and a bit more hops than in the Black Isak. Another delicious beer from this brewery. Nuffield (4172) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Lower fizz than some of their other exclusive bottles, dark brown body. Softer aroma, too, clearly helped by the aging, with smoothness of palate and complexity of flavor. Bottle from brewery. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2010

der Bierkulturen, Kolin nad Rynem: Literally black, small, but stable lacy tanned head; solid sherry-like to port-vinous and fruity nose with a leathery and sweet roast-malty background; soft, full bodied, solid bitter-sweet flavour; raisins in the solid sweet-bitter and coffeeish finish. Nice and pleasant.....
Bottle from Bierkoning. Pitch black body with thin, tan head. Nose of dark fruits, molasses and plenty of whisky. Taste of malts, licorice, whiskey and light notes of chocolate. Texture very silky and smooth. Very enjoyable. High ABV whips by without a notice. nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2010
Draught at Brasserie 4:20, Roma. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Huge aroma of chocolate, whisky, roast, dark fruits and caramel. The flavour carries the same. Noticeable alcohol warmth showing through. Dark bitter chocolate finish. Very well rounded and nice complexity. Awesome beer - one to sip and savour. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2010
thanks to tpd975 thru Bosse for sharing this little gem.
pours dark brown, thin mocha head, sticky golden lacing.
aroma, small bottle but packs a nice boozy scent-punch. chocolate malts, coffee goodness, grainy and notes of whiskey.
flavors, grainy, thick chocolate malts and boozy-whiskey mouthfeel, touch of caramel, dry, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs.
Nicely done, not the most unique Imp. Stout out there, but the 18cl is the right bottle and again, you might want to share this one.

Bottle 1529 thanks to bosse, a world class trader.
A: Pours a nice dark black hue. Nice tan head. Lite retention with some spotty lace.
S: Aromas of whiskey, oak, vanilla, and char. Wonderful roast hides beneath with notes of chocolate and coffee.
T: Tasty brew no doubt. Wonderful barrel aged beers, whiskey and vanilla really stand out. Roasted malts, chocolate, and astringent coffee. A real big beer for sure. Not the most drinkable, but a real tasty sipper.
M: On the fuller side of medium, light carbonation, big beer that is a real treat.
D: Very high sippability. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2010
Finally entering some old notes...
bottle #518 at Stockholm Beer and Whisky fest, September 2009. Pours deep brown with a bit of a reddish hue, taped with a small tan head. Aroma begins with roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with whiskey in the background and gradually becoming more apparent. Whisky notes, especially alcohol, dominate the palate; there is some chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and oak in the background, but the barrel overwhelms the base beer.
