4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled on 9/19/11. Poured medium-deep brown with a smoked tan head. The aroma was on the big side, with sweet whiskey, coffee, and burnt cocoa leading.. accents of vanilla, black pepper, and a kiss of smoke.. balance was excellent. The flavor found well-roasted coffee, licorice, and toasty cocoa at the core, with well-integrated peppery notes and smoky whiskey laced throughout.. warm through the finish, but just the right level of warm.. awesome stuff! Heavier-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. a touch oily (a good thing).. the barrel played very well with the base beer.. loved it!
330 ml bottle at home thanks to Nightfall! Black color with beige brown head. Malty aroma, roasted, chocolate, wood, whiskey-alcohol. Sweet and bitter taste, lots of milk chocolate. Medium oily body with average carbonation. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 10, 2016
33cl bottle shared with Kermis.

Bottle, massive thnx to dEnk for sharing this! 2011 vintage. Pours an intensen dark black beer with a very minimal amount of light brown head on top. Aroma has loads of molasses, sweet whisky notes, some caramel and wood. The age is defintely showing in this one, loads of sweet licorice and some clumpy yeast sediment. Softly carbonated. Nice, good drinking imperial stout. Complex and balanced. Good stuff. 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Brown pour with a kaki head. Mild boozy bouquet. The scotch just dominates the beer. Mild dark roasted malt and espresso back beats. A bit thin in the body. Good mouthfeel. ctipping (2233) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
330 mL bottle. A little transparency to a black body. Big khaki head. Smells nutty, caramel, vanilla. Boozy with some hops. Very light scotch. Scotch flavor is light too. Caramel. Milk chocolate. Boozy with a light whiskey finish. Medium body. Not that rich. Nice, though.

Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Sourced from Kris Wines. Pours black-brown, clear, with a light, beige cream head. The nose holds mild burnt wood, torched marshmallows. Big sweet flavor with rich milk chocolate, more burnt marshmallows, moderate wood. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with plenty of sugary dark malts, further toasted marshmallow, nice dark chocolate. Very solid overall. Christos (5889) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2015
(De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis Macallan BA) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 11%
Totally black colour on the body, with head consisting of bubbles, bursting quickly and leaving a thin line around the glass.
Very nice aroma, penty of chocolate, whiskey, iodium, vanilla, more dark chocolate.
Nice taste too, again plenty of chocolate, light alcohol notable, hints of the whiskey, chocolate cake, vanilla, dark fruits, prunes.
Medium thin body, it could use a bit more. Soft carbonation.
Very good. Tsekouratos (604) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JAN 4, 2015
