03-JUN-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish @ Beer", thx Minitøser.
Black with lasting creamy brown head.
Roasted with chocolate. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, soy.
Full but not really as imperial as some but just makes it more drinkable.
Sweet, long roasted finish.
Fantastic stout. MrYdremark (4) - - JUN 17, 2012 does not count
Very good imperial stout. Dont have much reference to go with but it sure tasted good.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen
Vertical with basic (2010) version
Flavour is quite different from the basic version with vanilla and bourbon notes. And hints of cocoa. Flavour has lots of vanilla, some bourbon notes and hints of coffee. Warming alcohol in the finish. Much better than the basic version.
