Tide (4628) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Draught at Brewdog Helsinki. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, chocolate, nuts, vanilla, a bit of bourbon, bread and coffee. Bitter finish with roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, nuts, a bit of bourbon, coffee and dark fruits. Excellent imperial stout. L_Lovecraft (783) - - NOV 25, 2017
Many problem on my bottle, nose is intense like the regular version with some oak and cognac, a bit confused maybe, pitch black wth a good tan head, full body, soft carbonation, then sour and tart everywhere, some choco and barrel but definitely this beer is not well aged...the regular is a bit too pastry for me, i'm sad for this evolution because the barrel can give a balance for my palate in this type of beer. some of this days we retry with the bourbon version...omnipollo you're not my favorite brewery but certainly you're not so bad.

Gift via Pub'R. Pours thick and turbid blackish with minimal head. Nose is huge pecan, hazelnut, chocolate, peanut butter, mild oak, bourbon. Tastes rich, smooth, with great notes of pecan, walnut, almond, hazelnut, peanut butter, chocolate, graham cracker, oak, bourbon. I'd love to know how they made this beer, because if I could freeze it, I'd eat it like candy. There are so many dessert staples dancing around, it is amazing! It is apples and oranges somewhat, but this beer is Dark Lord 2006's sweeter cousin! It is that damned good! OminouSC2 (1005) - Mora, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle at Broken dreams Borlänge. Black color, small brown head. Aromas of chocolate cake, pecan, vanilla and slight vinous hints. Sweet taste of chocolate, vanilla and cognac. Tart finish with cherries and wine. I suspect this beer hasn't aged that well, because the tart, almost sour finish felt very out of place. jmgreenuk (10520) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle shared with the KL tasting crew. Poured a clear dark brown with a round bubbly off white head. The aroma is rich roasty, big pecan nut, alcohol, oaky peaty, sweet sugary malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich oily sweet fruit, light liquorice, warm alcohol, dry coffee palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation and an oily mouthfeel.

A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th July 2020. Poured into a snifter. It was black in colour with a half finger mocha head that dissipates quickly while leaving some sparse lacing. Aromas of chocolate, pecan, caramel and whisky with hints of vanilla and cognac. Tastes of sweet milk chocolate with a nice pecan nuttiness. There are also hints of oak, cognac and peat. Full bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Overall this particular bottle was nice and tasty, but I don’t think that the barrels improved the base beer. It should be noted that this beer has had it’s share of infection. This is my third bottle now, of which I’ve had two good and one infected. The infected bottle clearly tasted sour and was just not pleasant to drink. You will know if you have an infected bottle, so I guess it’s a bit of the luck of the draw at this point. cinek (559) - krakow, POLAND - JUL 5, 2017
butelka/czarne jak noc, piękna, brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, która utrzymuje się do końca picia w postaci wyraźnej obrączki i nawet delikatnie oblepia szkło. aromat mlecznej czekolady, mokrego drewna, kokosa, szlachetnego alkoholu, który delikatnie kręci w nosie, orzechy, delikatne nuty palone, aromat kompleksowy, można wąchać i wąchać... w smaku jednak zdecydowanie gorzej, gorzki start, przechodzący w wyraźną kwaśność, która jest jeszcze podbita nagazowaniem piwa. po zapachu spodziewałem się większej słodyczy. gnoff (11229) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2017

Black color, very small tan head. Sweet, chocolate, malty, alcohol, light roasted, milky, milk chocolate scent, a bit too boozy. Sweet, acidic, charred, chocolate, lactic, cherries taste. Warming alcohol. Growing a bit disturbing CO2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Chest warming alcohol. Also smells of coconut and (canned) sausage jus.
A really dark and thick beer, it smells like flowers and chocolate mixed together. The taste is round and bitter with notes of vanilla, coffee and caramel. You can tell it's has aged in cognac barrels, a really god beer!.

330ml bottle (thx, Nick M.!). Pours am almost black with a dark brown. Aroma is chocolate cake with pecans. Taste is sour, fruity, chocolate cake, pecans, with lots of wood. Despite the original was not a perfect, this one is not better.
