Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2011
Tap @ the BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Pitch black pour, thin solid creamy tan head. Aroma is very roasted and ashy, some coffee, licorice, tobacco and port. Flavor is surprisingly sweet, although still quite bitter as well. Very nice and versatile brew. Hugely thick body and quite alcoholic.

espenra (1006) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2011
37.5cl bottle. Black as the night. Small head. Aroma is laden with alcohol which is not suprising as this is an 17.5 ABV beer. Some notes of malts, coffee and raisins. Flavour is sweet, very sweet. Lots of alcohol again. Coffee. Shorter aftertaste than expected.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Viscous dark pour with a thin chestnut colored head. Aroma is full on SOY. Flavor heavy roast on the verge of being smokey. Thick, soy, and cloying. Hot aftertaste. Im blown away but not in a good way.

plastercasts (5) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2011 does not count
Pours really black with a very thin tan head, nose is sweet stewed fruits, earth, roasty. taste is really sweet with lots of earth like if you mixed a port with soil. finishes with a huge alcohol burn. really unbalanced not my style of imp stout.

jstraw (1966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Black with big, frothy, chocolate milkshake head / Modest, grassy, hot nose / Full body, winey and a touch hot, sweet, with very good balance and dry finish / Flavors of licorice, molasses, dark roast coffee, brown sugar, and grass / Alcohol unnecessarily high?, but very good nonetheless.

Bottle 375ml @ home
Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with a very long sweet and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2011
12.7oz. corked and caged bottle. Pours thick and black with a thin dark brown head. The aromas are bourbon, oak, smoky charred wood, buttered toast, and quite a bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet sugar cane and burnt caramel, charred oak, marshmallow, and vanilla. Bitter cocoa, smoke, and buttery toast become present toward the end, with a strong alcohol finish. Creamy and warming, with low carbonation, although a bit astringent and hot. Overall, quite tasty; rich, sweet, roasty, and smoky, with obvious alcohol throughout.

JulienHuxley (5772) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle 375ml, split 5-way. Pitch black with a mokachino ring of foam. Very few bubbles. Aroma of tar, chocolate, brown sugar and torrefied malts. The taste is fruitier than you would expect with blackberries, grapes and dates but unfortunately, too sweet Sticky sweet palate like most of these high abv brews. It was pretty good, but I was happy to move on after my 1/5 share.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours pitch black with virtually no head. Aroma is sweet, boozy, chocolate. Taste is intense cloying sweetness with a heavy boozy mouthfeel. Difficult to drink.
