Excellent berry notes with subtle and balanced roast and coffee on the nose. Smooth and silky in the mouth with a soft texture and a slightly oily viscosity. Taste is equally smooth! Chocolate and coffee with a red berry sharp note in there. Notes of LBV Port with dark fruits continuing on to the finish. Classy beer! KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle at Q-Brick. Nose of cocoa, chocolate, café au lait. Think body, but good cocoa flavor, some cream, coffee. Very nice. Alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle from Bierkompass.
Pours a dark reddish brown with a small off white head.
Smell is not very prominent. Some smoke/leather, some chocolate.
Taste has coffee, chocolate and a lot of liquorice and bitter hops at the end.
Very thin for an Imperial Stout, more like an Imperial Porter but that’s also too much to say regarding the very thin feel. Mouthfeel is smooth, not much carbonation at all.
Quite disappointing. Jimmythespoon (469) - - SEP 22, 2012

2011 version. Poured out a stupid crown that took 30 mins to settle to a drinkable. Dark brown brew. I’d say this smells like a borderline stout. It’s a sweet candy like molasses blob. A little nutty in the almond genre, mild spice. Complex yet not appealing. The taste is a mix between a UK Barleywine, a fruity dark Belgian ale and a weak winter seasonal offering. Mild molasses, short lived spice, almond, licorice, orange, not quite choco, more slice an a touch of heat on the finish. For the most part this beer was just too rich for me. Almost oily. Not a fan tonight but maybe on another night. BelgianBeerGal (4258) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottled shared at Jackie O release with the Disputin label plastered on top. 336/1120 from 2009. Poured a slick, oil looking. A little tobacco/spice bite to it but then mellowed into some sweetness. Fine. McDear (44) - Napoli, ITALY - SEP 3, 2012
