W aromacie potężny dwaka orzechów laskowych, sporo czekolady, palonych słodów. Smak bardzo słodki, od początku do końca. Trochę alkoholowe, rozgrzewające, ulepkowate. heman (1110) - Tychy, POLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Barwa nieprzejrzyście czarna, piany brak.
Aromat średnio intensywny, orzechy w gorzkiej czekoladzie, pumpernikiel, wyraźny alkohol.
W smaku pełne i słodkie, melasa, cukier kandyzowany, czekolada z nutą orzechów laskowych, kawa. Finisz wyraźnie alkoholowy, drapiący gardło. Praliny czekoladowe z wódką. gr_pa (773) - siemianowice, POLAND - AUG 20, 2017

My goodness this was heavenly good. Hmm maybe the place to share it was meant to be.superspak (5793) - Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Black color with a solid beige head. Looks fine. Nice lacing. Solid aroma. Full body and a smooth carbonation level. Nice rich (but yet mellow) sweetness and a oily texture. Warming alcohol. Unbelievable well masked at 19%. Lasting flavor with chocolate, toffee, molasses, nutty, espresso, oak and vanilla. Solid stuff!
[Shared bottle at Assistens Kirkegård! in Copenhagen, Denmark]
750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 10/4/2016. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger foamy khaki head with poor retention, and reduces to nothing pretty quickly. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Plenty of alcohol legs on the glass. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, hazelnuts, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, vanilla, molasses, bourbon, toasted oak, coconut, raisins, and roast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, hazelnuts, and bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Increasing booze in the aromas as it warms, but not overwhelming. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, hazelnuts, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, vanilla, molasses, bourbon, toasted oak, coconut, raisins, and roast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate bourbon/oak spiciness and light roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, hazelnuts, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, vanilla, molasses, bourbon, toasted oak, coconut, raisins, and roast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, hazelnuts, and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet and bourbon/oak spiciness balance; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from bourbon/oak spiciness and roast bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Light-medium carbonation and fairy full body; with a smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly slick/syrupy/sticky/chalky/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden; a small lingering warmth, with mild booziness lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible barrel aged imperial stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, hazelnuts, and bourbon barrel flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the enormous ABV. I was hoping for more intense hazelnut character from this; but it seems to be much more balanced between the malt, barrel, and hazelnut flavors. A highly enjoyable offering regardless.
