Bottle from Bay Ridge in Annapolis. A little pricey but my first Brewdog and hopefully doing so in style. Pours i to my FW Teku dark brown to black and murky in the glass, a very small brown head that turns into just a ring around the top in no time. Aroma is up front scotch whiskey, caramel, chocolate, some dark fruit, oak. Flavor begins with whiskey notes, molasses, and a bit of dark fruit, then bursts into huge nutty flavors and lots of peat. Finishes with nutty, peaty caramel flavors with a slight vanilla and oak. A really beautiful medley of flavors here that come in waves. Medium heavy mouthfeel with relatively high carbonation for the style. Lots of trash talk on Brewdog it seems but this is a real treat. Wouldn't hesitate to have this again. Obviously plenty of alcohol presence here but surprisingly sippable despite the ABV. While listed as an imperial stout, it really has more Wee Heavy, Old Ale, or Barleywine characteristics than stout. Not a bad thing, of course, and rather yummy.

From Platinum. BB 2015.

A - pich black. One finger tan head fades to ring of film, a little lace.

S - intense booze, chocolate-box candy, sweet. Not as much vanilla from the barrel as I expected.

T - massive, complex, pepper, sweet chocolate-box (concuring with another reviewer almost like a strawberry-creme) , single malt, mellow roasts, but really this taste is almost bigger than beer, and demands a circumspect approach. Vanilla from the barrel has a fight on its hands with the pepper.

M - a little zesty.... Oops! Don't need the zing, but otherwise heavyweight to oily. Massive alcohol burn.

O - one of the biggest beers I have ever had, must say. However, the alcohol burn really takes over and affects drinkability. Like drinking 330ml of Port. (!) Would be a great beer to share, or at a tasting, tho.
I was sooo looking forward to this, but such a let down in terms of drinakability, not necessarily flavour, in comparison to Paradox Isle of Arran.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£7.99):
Black with a thin, bubbly head on top that is half a centimetre tall and a medium tan in colour. Retention is pretty good too.

Strong chocolate aroma with whisky throughout. There is a strong alcohol/grain presence with rich cocoa and a touch of peat. Boozy with dark fruits making an appearance with vanilla right at the end.

Strong, alcohol laced flavour that has a lot of whisky and grain coming through alongside some dark fruits such as plum. There is a strong, toasted malt taste that precedes an earthy taste that is offset with some prunes, dates and figs among others.

Full-bodied with a huge alcohol content as promised and has fairly lively carbonation levels considering this. There is a slight alcohol burn but smooth for the most part.

A true big beer, and one that packs a punch, There is a lot of whisky and grain throughout as expected but the dark fruits that feature throughout make it an enjoyable beer, although this is probably still a one-off for me

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head. Aroma of luscious sweet roasted malt notes with light sweet liquor notes. Taste is sweeter then I had expected with some sweet roasted malt notes, light chocolate notes with some light scotch notes at the end which rounds off the corner. Body is quite full with oily like texture with light carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. Barrel-aging is not has apparent has I had expected but very good nonetheless.
