Svesse (8357) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2011
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 8 Oct 2011) Black colour with brief head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, cocoa, liquorice and hints of soy sauce. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, coffee, hints of liquorice, some brown sugar sweetness and a generous cocoa bitterness in a long finish. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel. Very tasty stout and very well balanced for its strength. Impressive and quite excellent.

NapoleonSolo (4) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2011 does not count
Bottle at Craft Beer Co. in London. Very dark, practically black, with a small but pronounced brown head. On the nose theres loads of rich malt, chocolate, some coffee,light oak, and a reassuring but not overbearing whiff of alcohol. Taste is deep and complex, develops nicely across the mouth with the sweet notes not too cloying and followed by a pleasant warmth from the alcohol. Finish is smooth and long-lasting with a surprising lack of bitterness. Like rich, smooth coffee liqueur in the mouth. An excellent example of an Imperial Stout, and far more refined than most.

Scopey (14012) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle at the CP&K thanks to Duff the hermit. It pours jet black, with a decent dark tan head. The nose is milk chocolate powder, roasted malt, smoke, sticky varnish, dark cherry and toffee. The taste is initially sweet notes of milk chocolate, toffee and salted caramel, then transitions with more savoury flavours of roasted malt, smoke, oak, peated malt, varnish and alcohol warmth, with a bitter roasted malt finish. Full body, fine carbonation, sticky mouth-feel and good balance. Tasty.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Raleigh. It pours pitch black with a thick and dense brown head. This stuff is thick. The nose is potent with lots of roasted malt, coffee, mocha, very dark chocolate, and a slight oxidation. The flavor is pretty outrageous as well. Mostly roasted malt, coffee, some burnt notes, ash, a subtle sweetness, and an underlying fruitiness. A little paper as well. Warming alcohol on the back end. Thick and delicious with low carbonation. This is a perfect winter brew. Very nice and its held up very well over the past couple of years. Highly recommended.
