Nnudd (69) - Helsinge, - NOV 19, 2010
[email protected] Pours clear pitch black with a small dissapering brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted, with prunes and dried fruits. Also some notes of liquorice and coffee. Taste of roasted malt, dark, really dark chocolate, but also quite prominent alcoholic. Ends with hints from the bourbon barrel and liquorice. Quite dry in the mouthfeel, reminds me of dryhopping. Body is amazingly with a thick oily viscosity. Medium carbonation, and indeed a nice brew.

BlazerT (1050) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Butelka ma z 2-3 lata. Tak jak wersja BA Calvados uwypukliła palone nuty kawowe, podbijając kwaskowaty charakter piwa, tak tutaj mamy zupełnie odwrotny efekt. Piwo jest niezwykle ułożone, wygładzone. Dominuje przede wszystkim mleczna czekolada, ponadto trochę nut waniliowych. Kawa nie tak ordynarna w odbiorze. Słodkie od samego początku, alkohol niewyczuwalny, pijalność na wysokim poziomie. Solidne piwo, na pewno grna EU płka.

PabloZab (1476) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2017 Bottle 330ml (BB 30.10.2023). Completely black with delicate, brown head. There is chocolate and sweet vanilla plus delicate nobble booze, like liqueur in aroma, intense and very, very nice, really everything the best from ris and barrel. Chocolate, cacao, sweet vanilla, delicate, noble booze like cherry in chocolate, that we can summarize the taste. Full body, oily, smooth, really good. That is a pleasure to drink such beer.

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

__Rb81 (789) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Bottle at home (bb 19.05.24). Pours black without a head. Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, liquorice. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, full mouthfeel, but less creamy than expected, almost no carbonation, warming alcohol after. Very nice.

Strifeanddiscord (9) - - MAR 8, 2017 does not count
Konsystencja starego oleju silnikowego i mocny zapach kawy i czekolady przy nalewaniu zapowiadał, że będzie się działo. Jedynym zawodem jest piana, bo prawie jej nie było, chociaż jest to dla mnie tak mało istotna wada, że zupełnie nie zwracam na nią uwagi. Aromat powala! Gorzka czekolada, kawa, Bourbon, orzechy włoskie, palony karmel. Na drugim planie przebija się wanilia, rodzynki i figi. W smaku podobnie. Gęste, wyklejające, bardzo pełne. Wspaniała gorzka czekolada, sporo wysokogatunkowej kawy, Bourbona. Alkohol trochę się przebija, ale w żaden sposb to nie przeszkadza w odbiorze tego wspaniałego piwa. Piwo zrobiło na mnie ogromne wrażenie!

ClarkVV (6539) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle (undated) at Brew Dog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Very nice appearance, with some clarity visible on the maroon/burgundy-tinted edges. Dark mahogany body and a large, tan head atop showing strong retention.
The nose is a good mix of fairly strong, but not obnoxiously-so, bourbon and wood with plentiful roast, fudge and caramel, as one would expect. Seems to be quite sweet, but again, not nearly to the point of being put-off. Alcohol-wise, its there, of course, but isnt intense or burning. There is a bit of strong ester, almost banana-like, on the very end, but this very likely could come from the bourbon just as much as it could from the yeast. Overall, a rich, rather intense nose that doesnt quite go over-the-top.
In the mouth, its thick, though not syrupy, with an almost granular quality to it. Tons of rich caramel and fudge with a slight espresso hint, transitioning quickly to a more spicy, liquor-like bourbon character. Low carbonation but ample and mostly engaging for whats there. Alcohol nicely folded in to the rich layers of bourbon, caramel, fudge and roast. Fair acidity on the end helps with balance, as well. Nice stuff, nothing really stood out to me, but its pretty under control for its size and richness.

scottm2588 (184) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, liquorice, slight bourbon. Taste is dark chocolate, molasses, slight coffee, roasty, ripened plum, light carbination. Lovely stuff.

Bullit (4565) - Burgos, SPAIN - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle at Brewdog Dog House. Black coloured with thin brown lacings. Nose is roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon, coffee, some sweetness. Flavour is roasted malts, bourbon, wood, coffee and chocolate, bit of wood. Fairly alcoholic.

DesertDevil (698) - Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle on X-mas. Sharp aroma of licorice, slightly charred plastic and burnt coffee. Any bourbon scent is very hidden. The first sip reveals notes of oxidation along with dark chocolate and a heck of a lot more alcohol than the nose suggests. Again, the bourbon notes barely emerge. Very smooth mouthfeel, which sadly is the beers best attribute. This one hardly ranks among the top 50 imperial stouts in my book.

Torrefacto (1649) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2016
Negro opaco y espuma beis oscuro. Aromas de chocolate, cacao, vainilla, mermelada de fruto negro, caf, licor. Cuerpo denso sedoso con sabor como en aroma con final de amargor de chocolate negro y licor.
