Sammy (11641) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2016
Moderated the base beer. Dont like the aroma so much . less lace. 2014 beer liked the modest charred oak. Thick good mouthfeel. 2015 better aroma. Best of the horizontal of avarice. Edgier taste. Sticky lacy foam.

slowrunner77 (11026) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Th whisky barreling kills all remnants of Belgian in this imperial stout, but is so delicious as to still be an improvement. Thin for an 11.5% beer but smooth. Strong whiskey notes with anise and roast. Quite enjoyable.

daknole (10923) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Brown pour, brown head. Sadly this one has some soy notes, but I must say I was able to wade past them and taste what is a very nice beer. Smooth and rich with a nice chocolate and roast backbone. Too bad for the soy.

On tap @ Avery Strong Ale Fest 2015. Dark brown appearance with a dark brown head. Coconut, whiskey, dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a bit of roast in the aroma. Lots of coconut and chocolate in the mouth. A bit thin. Kind of boozy. Overall, pretty enjoyable.

Bomber, bottle #426, release #2, anno 2013 courtesy of and shared with Omgrich. Couleur brune fonce presque noire, col pais et crmeux caf au lait tirant sur le moka. Arme est superbe avec un malt divin le tout sur un whisky restant discret mais efficace et qui apporte sa petite dose de vanille et bois. Palais est fortement centr sur les malts, ici des notes caramel, chocolat avec un rappel presque de cacao. Le whisky est prsent et ajoute une petite pointe vanille venant probablement de la vanille et du chne amricain si caractristique. Le tout est pais et dlicieux avec un petit rtro de cassis noirs, malt cara avec une fini note damertume et un lger bois pic. Mmorable, qui se dguste laise, gagnant en complexit au fil du temps.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, bottle #72/708, batch 1/2012. Pour is thick black with tan/dark brown head, aroma brought notes of big roast, anise, hints of caramel, toffee, slight vanilla, touch of dark fruit. Taste is a mix of roast, coffee, chocolate, some anise, dark fruit, finishing fairly sweet, very roasted, with some vanilla, slight oak, very slight whiskey comes in. Tasty and balanced.
