Bottle, thanks again to Papsoe
Black pour with a brown head, this is a gem.
It is silky smooth on the tongue & in the mouth. 11% ABV? hardly noticed it. Great flavors of chocolate & vanilla.
Purchased a bottle from the Ale House, Amesbury bottle cellar (I dont want to remember the price of this) ha ha. Date of bottle is 1/28/13. Pitch black color, no head. Aroma is chocolate hints, roast and booze. Booze at this age and only 10 %? Uh? Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 9, 2016
Flavor has a mild brownie batter base, dark fruits,molasses, and.... a slight amount of booze which teally shouldnt be here at it’s age. But with 40 year old cognac... ok, Well, I will not be able to track another bottle down, so no matter. If you get it at a reasonable price, pull the trigger.
Totalmente negra, espuma marrom claro de pouca formação mas boa persistência, precisei servir de uma altura acima da média para criar espuma. Aroma intenso de malte torrado, leve defumado, açucar queimado, mais café e cacau do que chocolate, álcool potente. Paladar de dulçor alto seguido de amargor seco torrado, corpo apesar de licoroso tem baixa carbonatação e transmite sensação de aguado em alguns momentos. Lúpulo e leve acidez de folhas verdes aparece mais ao final, longa persistência e intensificação do torrado seco. Já provei melhores no estilo, esperava mais.

From a 33cl bottle bought from the brewery, pours black with copperish head. Amazing smell of chocolate and so is the taste. Starts sweet but follows with some bitterness. Taste has prunes and dark chocolate and is very full bodied. Considering its strength, one of these is more than enough. As good for a dessert as a regular beer, if only all stouts tasted like this! Definitely not a session beer but a beer that should be drunk at every session! TomHendriksen (514) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
This beer is dark colored, has no head. It has a hint of chocolate an a taste of caramel.

dark black, small head. Heavy malty aroma,coffe, toffe nutty aromas. taste light sweet medium bitter well balanced average carbonation creamy beezydrunkit (29) - Alabama, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle at home after dinner. Pours coffee black with very little foam. An ever so slight ring of head around the glass. On the nose heavy notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts and wood. Something in there reminded me of the smell of dry dog food. Overall pleasant. Taste was big and bold dark chocolate, slight bitter spice and oak wood. Heavy, thick, and calmingly smooth. Better than most after dinner desserts. One of the best imperial stouts I’ve ever had. mmyohane (108) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Aroma has vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. Prunes. Pours black with a small headthat leaves beautiful lacing. Taste has medium bitterness and medium sweetness. Coffee and dark chocolate. Some salty licorice. Full bodied with average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Date on the back read: "Feb 29, 2012."
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a black color with no head and no lacing.
The smell, still had a nice sweet dark fruitiness up front over some light black licorice and then some sweet milk chocolate, nice good for the most part.
The taste was mainly sweet with a nice dark fruitiness up front over the sweet milk chocolate underneath. Fairly sticky in the aftertaste and leading into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body. Sessionability rolls out a fine sticky feel on my tongue. I’d say good.
Overall, as an imperial stout, I’d say its nice to have and would have again, it works for the style and for me. fredfa (234) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - NOV 22, 2015
Ótima breja, mas pelo preço, esperava mais. Fez pouca formação de espuma. É saborosa com amargor assertivo. Teor alcoólico não é bem inserido e aumenta a medida que esquenta.
