38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sweet Stout, alcoholic/roasted and slightly woody/spicy, very heavy, yet balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!, WOW! jesperhammer (5017) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2012
09-JUN-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
Black (!) with lasting brown head.
Fantastic bourbon nose with quite some alcohol.
Heavy bourbon taste with loads of roast. Soy, hops, coffee, very malty bitter.
Very sweet but that is balanced by the high ABV and heavy roast. WAUW. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2012
12.7 oz bottle. Inky brown with a webby tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, whiskey, coconut, raisin and cake batter. Silky with heat and lingering prickles then numbing. Taste is whiskey, bitter chocolate, caramel, boysenberry, tar and cinnamon stick. Intense with massive alcohol transcending it’s imperial stout classification. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2012
375ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, roast, chocolate, alcohol, Bourbon, vanilla, oak, wood, and some coffee. Poured pitch black in color with a small, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is heavily sweet and heavily bitter. Tastes of alcohol, malt, roasting, bitter coffee, Bourbon, vanilla, oak, and slight ash. Medium to full body. Viscous, then dry texture. Soft carbonation. Heavily sweet, heavily bitter, malt, roast, alcohol, Bourbon, oak, bitter coffee finish. 19.3%ABV is present throughout and a bit hot, but not overbearing.

Bottle, 05/27/2012. Pours thick black, tan beige head with great retention and almost liqueur-like lacing. Aroma is heavy bourbon with a chocolate glaze, sweet espresso cream and licorice. Taste sweet and boozy, again with heavy bourbon, thick dark roasted malts, coconut and licorice, wood and bitter alcoholic finish. Palate thick, but the sweetness makes this one go very slowly. Rich flavors but balance is lacking for me. oRos (1674) - sacramento, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle shared with marcus. Has a woody aroma with slight coffee. Pures thick an black with a brown head. Has a whisky finish with a smoothness. grunx (367) - - MAY 22, 2012
Molt intensa en tots els seus sentits. Vainilles, plàtans, torrats, cafès... Per acabar un bon àpat. Es recomana compartir. Final agradablement alcohòlic. Genial. bhensonb (15969) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle from Bine and Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Aroma is alcohol with chocolate. Med body. Flavor is alcohol, chocolate, and smooth burnt malt. The bourbon finally appears. Strongly. The alcohol muddles the flavors. An interesting experience. marcus (10869) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a thin tan head and a treacle and alcohol aroma. There is a strong chocolate and alcohol flavor, mostly alcohol, with a long alcohol trail. It’s like drinking hard liquor with chocolate in it.
