750 ml bottle given to me by family for Christmas. The pour is opaque, inky black with a solid inch khaki head. Nice lace left behind as the beer falls. The aroma is strong, featuring sweet cocoa and cinnamon right away, along with roast malt and additional sweet vanilla and milk beyond that. The taste is a really well integrated blend of the roast malt, the sweet cocoa, and the cinnamon. The alcohol is very well integrated, and barely noticeable, which is quite a feat. The palate is heavy to medium bodied with low carbonation and the mouth coating lingering sweet and roast finish. Very well executed Imperial Stout. Fans of the style must go bonkers for this beer.

Biroholik (1295) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Tap @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration 2017
W aromacie karmel, kawa z mlekiem, dużo gorzkiej czekolady, ciasteczka czekoladowe, ziarna kakaowca, cynamon. W smaku najwięcej kakao, gorzkiej czekolady, cynamonu. Wanilia bardzo stonowana w tle. Papryczki chilli stanowią delikatny, ale przyjemny dodatek. Nie pieką w przełyk, nie wychodzą na wierzch. Pięknie się wpasowują w tło. Lekkie w smaku i z całkowicie zamaskowanym alkoholem, przez to może być zdradliwe. Pełne w smaku, gęste, oleiste. Rewelacyjne!

SG111 (1671) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2017 Bottled 11/2015. Drank on 05/07/17. Pours absolutely pitch black, used motor oil, zero head but decent tan head if given a very aggressive pour. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, booze, molasses, roasted malt, spot of pepper. Flavor is very cinnamon heavy, big roasted malt and chocolate body, little bit of pepper burn right at the end, some coffee in the finish. Really nice thick viscous body. I?m sure it?s toned down over the years but excellent for a non BA Stout.

750 ml bottle shared with a friend. Bottled 11/2013. Black with tan head. Aromas of cocoa, dark chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, cocoa, light peppers, a little soy sauce. May be slightly oxidized. Full body with a dry finish. Definitely better fresh but didnt age too badly.
