Pours black with a reddish hue, minimal tan head that disappears fast. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, burnt sugar, melasses, prunes and raisins. The usual imperial stout stuff, done to perfection. Taste opens with a light but thick sweetness before turning into a very rich, long bitterness before a strong alcohol finish with all those barrels incredibly present. A lingering taste of dark chocolate and coffee. Body is full, creamy and very, very pleasant. One of the best imperial stouts I've had.

Dark brown color, small brown head. Some sediments. Lovely aromas of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, toffee and slight tobacco. Taste of bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malt. Warming finish from the alcohol. Really good. EerieDrinks (302) - Malmï¿½, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2017
300th Beer Rating!AndySnow (8119) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2017
2 finger tan head.
Pitch black beer, with some light bleeding through underneath.
Aroma is bourbon, toffee, milk chocolate, soy, prunes, vanilla and a hint of raisins.
Taste is dark chocolate, soy, dark roast coffee, burnt oak, vanilla, coconut and light chili heat.
Mouthfeel is medium-thick, velvety smooth and presents a very nice kick of bitterness and perfect carbonation, along with a sugary stickiness that lingers for a long time.
Overall: I figured this was going to be great but this is even better than I expected. Well, it should be for $15/355ml bottle. Totally worth the money though. Good balance between harsh, roasty flavours and the sweet, sugary notes. A tad bit too alcoholic at times if I'm to find faults but it is at 14,5% ABV so what the hell. Fantastic stuff and one of my new top 5 Imps.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Dark. So dark once I had my thoughts on the appearance I gave in and consumed in blackout with some hifi tunes. Underworld: second toughest in the infants (if you must know).
Sweet bourbon nose with plenty of dark and caramel malt. Stone fruits with an alluring boozy invitation. Sticky, roasty toasty malts. Prune, bourbon, chocolate. Nice warmth.
Delicious!! Next one I’ll cellar (and share). Villyzzz (454) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2017
