This beast pours thick and sits in the glass without letting any light through, tar like with fading head leaving a halo with orange hue. Oily and milky in glass with a prominent tar-like nose of acrid roast along with resiny hop flavors. There is a slight tang to the vinous nougat center. All this goodness is slightly undercut by alcohol and oak astringency in finish.
Pite na panelu degust. Zrobiło wrażenie, może nie jakieś wybuchowe ale generalnie spoko. Mocno palone, gryzące goryczkowo, dość wytrawne. Ewidentnie czuć beczkę w dosłownym tego słowa znaczeniu - czyli drewno, poza tym ziemiste nuty. No i czekolada przyjemna. Niekoniecznie pod mój gust ale piwo bardzo dobre.

A nice and lingering brown head. Clear black color. Weevo (182) - Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Oaky and roasted aroma with nice vanilla touch.
The vanilla smothes the hard roasted malts in the taste.
Sweet caramell taste with a robust bitterness.
Pours black with thin med brown head. Nose is roasted coffee and oak. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla taste. Lingering bitter finish. Tasted better just above room temperature. Could drink two but not much more.

650 ml bottle, bottled 14.11.2016, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours a thick black with a light brown head. The aroma is full of roasted malt (toffee, cocoa, nuts, burnt wood) along with oak, prunes, raisin and quite some vanilla. Medium to full creamy body with a low carbonation, a medium sweetness, a light bitterness and some noticeable alcohol - nicely balanced. The flavor is full with loads of roasted malt - toffee, chocolate, hazelnut, burnt wood, licorice - along with wood and vanilla. Different roasted malt flavors which evolve from mildly roasted malt to burnt notes towards the finish. Overall not to sweet and lovely diverse Imperial Stout.

650 ml bottle from Beergium, bottled Nov 14 2016.
Black body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, tobacco, some leather, some smoke, liquorice.
Tastes similar, pretty dry, with more wood.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium roasty, wooden, with coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, some smoke, slight leather.
Very nice. Greatly balanced, with a great dryness throughout. Well integrated barrel notes, just providing some more dry wooden notes. Not as good as the regular version in my option, but great stuff.
0,65l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks. BB 11.14.2016. black color, small coffee colored head. smells earthy, licorice, cocoa, vanilla, nice smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, leathery, licorice, peppery, caramel, vanilla. finishes rather bitter with notes of vanilla, earthy notes and leathery notes. decent but not a fan, rather bitter with notes of earthy notes and vanilla (not a fan of vanilla unfortunatly). just drinkable.

Purchased at Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins for US$5.99 for the bomber.
It pours a near pitch black, no, it's more of a very very dark brown with a nice creamy tannish head of foam that sticks around for the duration and it has some lacing.
The smell is very woody and malty and fruity. Nice nose.
The taste has big notes of caramel malt and chocolate up front. After a few more sips, I get the Oak in the flavour along with sour cherrries and some very bitter hop, the latter of which, dominates near and through the finish. The body is medium to heavy and the carbo is lightly done. Oh, and the alcohol starts to become more noticeable, especially after the swallow....quite warming.
Well, I've tried this one and the non oaked version and I like the non oaked more. Still, this is a fine sipping IS and I'd buy it on the odd occasion without feeling any regret.
Lucky enough to try this at a bottle share last Sunday. Holy shit this is a revelation. Pours a purely black, jet and opaque with a thick tan head that subsides slowly. The nose is heavy with oak, rich dark chocolate, roasted malts, espresso and big vanilla bean notes. Heavy, viscous and oily body with no carbonation. The aftertaste is bitter from the roast and a coffee flavours lingers on. This is one hell of a beer. Nordcore (1658) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Black with a nice light brown head. Aroma of liquorice, chocolate, wood and some dark fruit sense. Sweet with a nice warm chocolate and licorice end.
