Kavu (4793) - Helsinki, - NOV 22, 2012
6 fl. oz. bottle @ Harry’s. Pours pitch black with a low tan head. Light aroma is roasted malts, milk chocolate and alcohol. Flavor is roasted malts, cream, milk chocolate, coffee, alcohol and hops. Nice and soft at first with a flavor explosion in the finish. Quite sublime.

oobawa (1405) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Lovely bourbon barrel impy stout, deep, dry, and roasty with oodles of bourbon and oak coursing through the back end. Starts sweet, with milk chocolate, raisins, and molasses leading to a dark fruit-laced middle. Back end grows bitter and boozy, though, dark roast coffee and anise sliding into a deep, gorgeous oaked bourbon fade. Pours a lovely near-black with a tan-brown head and slight lacing. Nose is a enticing mix of whiskey, oak, coffee, and chocolate. Perfect texture, silky smooth without a hint of alcohol warmth. Lovin’ the B.O.R.I.S.

Tide (3895) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle at Sori Taproom. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, whisky, nuts, coffee, licorice, oak and a bit of alcohol. Bitter finish with roasted malts, nuts, whisky, oak, licorice, coffee and dark fruits. Very nice imperial stout.

SvanteL (548) - SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2017
Mycket mörkt rödbrun med litet ljusbrunt skum. Doften är fyllig, söt med lite whisky, körsbär och kaffe. Smaken är mjuk och fyllig med vanilj, russin, torkad frukt och dessertvin. Oj, oj, vad 1 1/2 månads fatlagring gör! Helt suverän, vilken smakbomb! (2010-08-14)

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2017 Pitch black color, medium sized brown head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, fudge, whisky, caramel, wood, roasted malt, slight ash and chocolate cake. Taste of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, wood, slight raisins and roasted hints. Very well balanced. I love it.

dzudohonor (167) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Czarny jak smoła, w aromacie czekolada i lukrecja, brak nut bourbonowych, w smaku tez taki jednowymiarowy - praliny, czekolada i lukrecja. Spodziewałem się czegoś więcej.

edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Draft pours black with brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Taste of bourbon, coffee and grains

tomekboniek (770) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Kran w Brewdog Warszawa. Bezowa, nikłej wielkości piana. Intensywny aromat beczki po whisky. Dalej migdały, wanilia, kokos i mleczna czekolada. W smaku przyjemna słodycz. Duża ilość migdałów, mokre drewno, whisky, czekolada. Konsystencja troszkę zawodzi. W moim odczuciu brak ciała. Alkohol świetnie ukryty.
