UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasty/chocolatey in both aroma and taste. Also burnt wood and vanilla and caramel aromas. Pours deep brown/black in color with a bit of brown head. Smooth and very complex, well-balanced with a nice moderate sweetness.

Brandman (2927) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2012
Pitch black body, no head. Aroma has acidic malty stoutlike notes, coffee, chocolate, wood and dark fruits. Very deep and intense flavour, ashy, a bit rubbery when warms. Bourbon hints. Slightly cheesy..

rxeight (2925) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Little 6oz bottle, stamped 222. Big thanks to Erik for the top 100 tick. Nose has some very dark European roast with a touch of booze. Taste is a lot if dark fruit, sweet cherries, some booze that to me comes off more fortified wine than bourbon. Palate was a bit thin and rather flat. Otherwise a very tasty little bottle.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Bottled 18cl. It pours a pitch black beer with a decent small beige head. Strong aroma of coffee, oak and gentian. Full bodied and syrupy. Mocha reminiscence throughout.

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Kleine 180 Milliliter-Flasche mit der Seriennummer 1000! Jubel! Im Geruch malzig, fruchtig, eindeutig s. Aromen von Orange, Holz und Likr. Antrunk s, orangig, malzbetont. Danach malzschokoladig, rauchig und schon sehr alkoholisch unterwandert. Dabei weiterhin s. Abgangs enorm dicht toffee-nougatartig und alkoholisch brennend. Ein Schwergewicht von einem Imperial Stout. Gewaltige Aromen. Leider, vor allem im Abgang, sehr spritig. Legt man die 12 Prozent Alkoholgehalt zu Grunde, verwundert das nicht und mag auch noch passend sein. Gut allemale, fr mich schrammt das Bier aber an einer Spitzenwertung vorbei.Test vom 17.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

bursprak (2800) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 6, 2014
180 ml bottle @ home. 2009 vintage bottled in 2010. Pours a thick oily pitch black fluid with no head at all. Intense aroma with lots of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, sweet syrup. Taste is silky smooth with bourbon, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Nice thick mouthfeel. Really good!

pushkinwow (2730) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Small bottle thanks to Countbeer. Black with a brown mist across the top of the beer. Light oak, vanilla and mellow bourbon, rich chocolate, light anise and red wine, toffee, and some molasses. Low carbonation, full body, alcohol is present but not too hot, sweet and viscous, quite rich, hint of bitterness at the end, great mouthfeel and long luxurious ending. The best of the HV series Ive had so far.
