UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Bottle from 2012 (rating from memory). Shared with Herr Angstmann. Best at cellar temperature, so a bit colder than room temp, but I guess that’s true with most good beers. Pours thick motor oily black deliciousness. Molasses, tobacco, dulce de leche, coffee, dark chocolate and more. Alcohol is insanely well hidden considering the 13%. At the time my favorite imperial stout to date, and a few years later it is still up there. I can’t wait to try this again (if I ever get the chance).
Finally had it again -- really good but didn’t quite live up to the memory, I must have romatacized it a little bit. An amazing beer but a bit abrasive with the tobacco taste and as a result the mouthfeel suffers a little bit. ebone1988 (2070) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2016

very dark brown pour. chocolate fluff head. aroma raisins port, maple, brown sugar, milk caramel. Tastes sweet silage, oats, hay, char, iron. Great balance between sweet syrupy mouthfeel with touch of wine like dry. alcohol stands out on it’s own, but is smooth and warm. gregwilsonstl (2613) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Chocolate. Tobacco after taste. Tasted side by side with Son of Beserker. They are quite a bit different. Beserker is thicker, sweeter, and did I mention thicker? Both are really good. Tanner head. Thx AkAndy.

First beer since 02-JAN. Pours jet black with with brown head that leaves a ring at ghe edge of the glass. Aroma is smoke, black malt, bitter sweet chocolate, anise and blended whiskey. Aroma is simar with tobacco, and slight sherry and black strap molasses. Finish is nice with a touch of maple syrup, only down side is the body, just A little thin for this ABV. Otherwise this is a great beer. Hombres (1) - - JAN 12, 2016 does not count
Good body. Not heavy on hops. Good light head on pour. Alch label @ 12.7% so I'm going to watch Art of the Steal ready for a good movie

Pitch black like no other beer that I had in recent times, with brown thin head; it pours rather viscous. Nice aroma of dark rye bread, the bourbon cask too is evident, and some alcohol. Thick body, almost oily; the roasted malt and sugars are in perfect balance, there is a good amount of dark chocolate, a hint of spices, black pepper, tobacco, and more than a trace of liquorice; the alcohol gently warms the tongue, but given the ABV the feeling is moderate; the bourbon flavor is less evident than the aroma; if there is one thing I could change here, I would remove the light sourness from the dark malts.
Bomber from Tacoma boys. Pours black. No head. Scent is bourbon, maple, licorice. Taste is pretty boozy. Some bourbon, brown sugar. Very tasty. Drake (14058) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2015
