(beer tasting @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY: bottle - 330 ml - 2007 vintage) Inky black pour with almost no head or carbonation. Dark cherry and chocolate with a light roast. Flavor is about the same with more chocolate than actual roasted flavors. Smooth and creamy with very mild carbonation. Beautifully crafted and aged well.

It poured black with very little head. The flavor has notes of cherry chocolate and some creaminess. Very tasty. The finish has some alcohol notes. Would have loved to try it with a bit more carbonation. Sean9689 (285) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2011
A - Pours black, very small tan-colored head which quickly vanishes to a few bubbles and whisps on top of the beer.
S - Smooth whiskey booze, dark chocolate, oak, hints of caramel and dark fruits. The chocolate and booze really work well together, and this nose is unlike any other barrel aged stout I can remember.
T - Chocolate, smooth whiskey, oak, slight dark fruit notes. The booze is much stronger on the nose and it really just a flash on the palate. Mostly chocolate, dark fruits, and oak. I picked out quite a lot of wine-like notes from this one, which made this even more enjoyable by adding another dimension.
M - Medium (a tad too light) body, light carbonation, smooth creamy finish.
D - I really enjoyed this one. The booze, wine notes, and chocolate really combined together to create some different and special. I would def drink this one again, if given the chance. madsenbryg (371) - Holstebro, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2011

THE stout tasting Pt1. Softish light palate with mild carbonation. Sweet dark malts with a little dark chocolate. Mild tangy whisky. Mild dark fruits and a trace of coffee. Dark chocolate again before the smooth finish. Lovely balance.

(Sample from Irishboy)Black body with not much head.Aroma and flavor are of what I would say oak along with some black liquorice and chocolate.Very tasty and interesting all at the same time. tobydarling (31) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2010
275ml bottle, 2006. Pours like treacle, black, no head. Resin, raisins, coconut. Amazingly smooth and rich without cloying. Coconut, almond, mincemeat, spices, dark fruits, chocolate, liquorice ChrisHSOTE (22) - Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
Pours amazingly thick, wonderful coconut and dark fruits aroma. Slick mouthful and full of flavour. Possibly the best imperial stout I have ever had
