4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 The beer was poured from the bottle in the glass. It foams heavily, very nice. The beer contains lots of alcohol, and you can taste that. It is a heavy beer. It tastes mainly like coffee and alcohol. Chocolate as well, cool! The mouthfeel is in order, a good thick beer. Overall an okay beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Borefts 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a huge frothy tan head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich fruity, slightly sweet raisin palate that simply masks everything else. A super beer.

Draught. Pours black with virtually no head. Feels a bit flat. Some grains and bready darkness in aroma. Sweetish taste, slightly vinous. Feels flat, yes - there are some flavors but they don’t stand out in the long run.

Jet black pour with a tall brown head and great lacing. Frist sniff was oooh thats good. Big rich syrupy malty some milk chocolate lots of butter and bourbon and a hint of vanilla. Huge thick creamy palate almost chewy after swallow. Sweet vanillas dry lightly bitter chocolates a touch of butter a warm swallow. This stuff is amazing. Nearly perfect IS!

Pours an opaque black on tap with bubbly tan ring of lacy head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt and Belgian yeast, lends to nice dark fruity esters, and then the barrel hits you; big vanilla and wood notes on the back end. Taste follows, smooth and bubbly. This is pretty amazing, priveledged to have tried it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. 2009 Vintage. Thanks Brett! Pours pitch black with a small foamy head that fades normally to a ring. Aroma is sweet and dense. Dark chocolate, wood, vanilla, ash, licorice, black currants and light whiskey. Taste is sweet at first but quickly turns fairly bitter. All the aromas come through nicely with the dark chocolate and burnt wood being most prominent. Thick, dense beer. Mouthfeel is very chewy but also a bit chalky. Really great imperial stout. Love everything but the slightly chalky mouthfeel.

Draft. Chocolate malt and bourbon aroma. Black with small head. Sweet chocolate and molasses malt flavor. Lightly bitter herbal and bourbon finish. Delicious.
