Hands off one of the best imperial stouts Ive ever had! Thick as motor oil, pitch black. Aroma of roasted malts, some liquorice and dark chocolate but most prominent is the bourbon. Mouthfeel is amazingly full bodied and taste is extremely nice with the same roasted malt, liquorice and dark chocolate and yet again a smooth vanilla/bourbon taste to finish it off! Carbonation is perfect imo. Doesnt feel like over 12% ABV at all! Cant find anything to complain about!

Aroma of liquorice & cocoa. Black with low brown head. Heavy motor oil. Full bodied, heavy texture & intense carbonation. Very long lasting finish.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 This beer is amazing. Well carbonated. Soft Coffee, chocolate a bit of vanilla and bourbon from the barrels. Highly recommendable

Wow, thanks for this one Allen. The nose on this beer is amazing. Huge barrel character and some smoke. Hints of vanilla and maybe a whisp of oak (haha). The taste is un freaking real, marshmallow and vanilla the best barrel attributes possible a little smoke like the nose and a well blended bourbon. Jesus Christo this beer is epic and I wish I could get more of it!

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 05.04.2014, old 0,25l bottle from Ngne , and new 0,33l bottle from Lervig @ home, side by side:

Ngne :
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of sweet and spiced fruity, dark malts, dark sugar, dark fruits, spices, licorice, coffee, caramel, oak, vanilla, mild bourbon, grass, butterscotch. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish fruity, dark malts, dark sugar, oak, spices, caramel, licorice, coffee, oak, vanilla, mild bourbon, dark fruits, grass, butterscotch. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Much of the bourbon has evolved into more fruity and spicy notes, but its still just amazingly nice!

Lervig:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, dark malts, oak, coffee, bourbon, unripe banana, grass, caramel, hay, licorice, dark sugar. Taste is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, espresso, oak, bourbon, grass, vanilla, licorice, coffee, caramel, hay, unripe banana. Medium bitterness, dry oaky mouthfeel. Nice, but I guess its just too fresh, and way off what the Ngne version used to be before; sweet vanilla bourbon delight.

Wow. Really an amazing beer. Smooth as hell. Great look, taste, smell, everything. Better than BCBS. Similar to BB4D, BASS.

wojanex (106) - warszawa, POLAND - APR 26, 2017
ambrozja; rwnie wybitne jak Brian, ale stout ciekawszy gatunkowo, whisky aż tak się nie wysuwa na prowadzenie wśrd smakw - gęste, wybitne, arcymistrzowskie piwo do solowej kontemplacji na długi wieczr

Pundarquartis (19) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2010
Fantastic taste and smell of roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruits and liquorice. Together with a fantasticly light mouthfeel, very close to chocolate mousse, this makes a winner.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Its pitch-black with a very dark-brown, huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, roasted malt, wood, chocolate, licorice and vanilla. The sweet flavour has notes of roasted malt, bourbon, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruits. Its vinous, complex and incredibly nice.

Rate #2000, big thanks to Rasmus for this bottle! Pour into snifter is dark and thick oily black with dark tan, brown head, one of the darkest Ive seen to date. Head is a bit thin and dissipates quickly but is expected with a 12% brew, alcohol legs stick around pretty well. Aroma has notes of big toffee, molasses, some anise, hints of fig, lots of dark chocolate, coffee notes as well. Taste is big notes of vanilla, dark fruit, toffee, lots of bourbon, but not overly boozy somehow, with notes of dark chocolate, toffee, some burnt toast and roasted malt, hints of smoke fill in the cracks but really do well to balance, finishes big, bitter, dry. So many layers, and tastes just great. Fantastic brew.
