sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2010
(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 didnt love the Struise Black Jack, either. 5557

Martinus (4560) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Black colour, diminishing white head. Aroma of caramel, sherry, apple, molasses, soy sauce, roasted malts. Sweet malty flavour, chocolate, brown sugar. Finish molasses, caramel, madeira, porto wine, milk chocolate. Aged rather nicely, but wonder how it wouldve aged in a bigger bottle.
(from 18cL bottle @ ZZT XI, Oirschot. Bottle nr 689, bottled 2010. Bedankt voor het delen, Joris!)

Vaiz (4429) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, port, whisky and some slight ashy notes. Flavor is ashy, very roasted bitter, some bready yeast, slightly sweet caramel malts and some tobacco. Complex and slightly harsh. Creamy texture, very full body and low carbonation. Decent brew.

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.

Nuffield (4092) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (3864) - SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2010
r lagrat p Mackmyra whisky-fat, s lite svensk r det ver den. Kan det finnas andra svensk-heter med denna len mnne? Kanske de har blivit inspirerat av raggar-kulturen, fr len doftar fruktansvrt mycket brnt gummi! Som tur r r smaken mycket trevligare med fantastiska toner av brnda kaffebner och ek i en tjock vtska som ven innehller mycket lakrits. Whiskey-tonerna r ganska diskreta och det r en mycket god Imperial Stout.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle, 18cl. Pours a clear and very dark brown beer with a light brown head. The aroma is malt, roasted, ash, coffee and licorice. The flavor follows the nose with some additional sweetness. The palate is sweetness and some notes of alcohol. Overall a really good beer. [Rating #1800]

Bottle # 531 shared at one of gunnars top shelf beer tastings. Black with clear red edges and topped by a short lived creamy brown head. Molasses and alcohol among the aromas along with roasted notes and dark dried fruits. Sweet and alcoholic flavors with plenty of roasted notes and coffee. Full bodied and splendid!

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. Brewed 16 Dec 2009 Bottled 13 May 2010 Bottle 338 of 1440 The beer is dark brown and sports a thin, beige head. The beer appears viscous, leaving a sheet of oily lacing on the walls of the snifter. The aroma offers oak, roast, tannins, dark fruit, malt, booze. The flavor follows the aroma to a tee. Lots of dark fruit character, which, in most cases, I do not care for, finding it to be a deterrent. However, this beer has a lot of nice things happening, all of which compliment one another. Low carbonation, thick and viscous, rich. A warming finish but alcohol presence is unobtrusive. Overall, a very tasty beer. I would enjoy having this again. Recommended.
