Bottle, batch 373, enjoyed 6,5 years after bottling, and it’s a story about cellaring success! Pours black, with a minimal creamy mocha head. Aroma is dark roasted malts and notes of port, with tobacco, dark fruits and coffee, as well as notes of burned wood, lactose, cocoa, molasses and liquorice. Full, creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with tobacco, muscovado, dark chocolate and oak, as well as raisins, prunes and dark fruits, coffee, vanilla and earthy notes of heather and honey. Beautiful finish with notes of wood, dark fruits and sweet coffee. A sweet bugger for sure, but never even close to cloying or over the top, as the sweetness sublimely blends delicately, and close to perfection, with the dark notes of roasted bitterness.

Bottle. $13.99 for a small 8.5oz bottle packed in wrapping paper and a tin. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Murky. Earthy aroma, dark chocolate, and some roast. Heavy mouthfeel. Bam! This is very sweet. Molasses, brown sugar, slight leather. It’s just so sweet that all other flavors are somewhat drowned out. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel.

8.5 oz. bottle that I think I bought at WIne and Cheese Place when I was living in St. Louis. Pours an inky deep, opaque brown with almost no head, just a little beige wispiness that departs not long after it shows up. Rich aroma - roasted malts, coffee, cacao nibs, molasses, earth, and ash. The flavor is sweeter and not as roasty, with molasses, cacao nibs, fudge, syrup, cola, coffee, and a bit of ash at the finish. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, coating mouthfeel and low carbonation. Probably a bit too much on the sweet side, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy this quite a lot.

Bottle share. Thanks GothGargoyle! Pours a clear, deep burnt amber. Aroma of green pepper, alcohol, muted dark fruit, wet coffee. Taste is dank sweetness, an odd sourness.

Tsekouratos (603) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - NOV 13, 2014
250 ml bottle thanks to Gunnar. Black as night body with dark brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate, liquorice, some coffee and alcohol. Taste is pretty sweet, maybe sweeter than the other vintage versions, with milk chocolate, vanilla, liquorice, some oak, maybe some dark fruits and coffee. Sweet aftertaste, pretty sticky mouthfeel. Medium to full body with low carbonation. My kind of Imperial Stous.

Bottle sample @ CK. deep brown with a small head. Nose Is ink cartridge. Pepper, dark cocoa. Taste is super sweet. Damn. Burnt brown sugar. Chocolate. A bit of soy sauce. Acidic roast coffee. Full body, oily. Meh.

Bottle, from tube. Orange paper inside, pour is no head, thick and syrupy taste is more of the same, big sweet beer with raisins and the like, minimal roasty flavor, almost chewy.. good body I love imperial stouts that make it known they are big heavy beers.

Tranquillity (1933) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
That is amazing! This is sweet. Fan of port wine? That’s nothing compared to this. The body is dark, there’s no head. The aroma is raisins, cognac. Smoke. The palate is incredibly full, the taste is so strong that you only need a drop at time. It’s sweet, molasses, prunes. The longest finish possible. Just wow.

sweet Jebus, they went sweeter. less char than volume 2 and the coffee is up front and center as opposed to in the background. overly sweetened coffee is the aroma and flavor, with some raisiny mollasses going on as well. more bitter at 100 ibus than sweet or red, which is nice, with a slight roasted malt character under the 15.5% abv. nice sipper...still too expensive...but i didn’t buy it :)"

Vintage moment at Finn’s Castle : Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon 3rd Edition. Beige but almost headless in the snifter, pitch-black body. A bouquet of liquorice, lots of fruits and sweets, and grapefruit peels passes my nose. Taste; powerful, prunes and malts, raisins and liquorice, fruits and grapes, candy grains and hops. Palate gets it to the max, power body and fruity de luxe. Very sweet-fruity, and finishes with syrup, apricots, fruit-liqueur or sherry. Luxurious late evening sipper. I saw no almonds but a beautiful midnight sun. Thanx 2 Finn :)
