Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch medium brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Smoky aroma with some dark roasted malt creating notes of dark chocolate. Moderate booze smell.

T- The dark chocolate flavors are decadent and work very well with the smokiness of the scotch barrel. It makes me think of chocolate honey glaze rub on some ribs or something. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden.

M- Velvety soft and creamy with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- A great concept for a beer with nearly perfect execution. To ol has earned a spot as one of my favorite Scandinavian breweries with this one. Simply delicious, and this is coming from a guy who's not a particular fan of smokiness in his beer.

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured pitch black and oil like with no hint of colour even when held up to the light. Dirty brown head poured tight, thick and foamy with a frothy top then faded to thickish coating with thick edging... some good lines of lacing...

Aroma - Lots of rich roasted malts mixed with good does of molasses / treacle sweetness, burnt wood and sooty notes, strong dark sweet coffee, piney hops, some prunes and dates, toasted malt loaf, some fresh vanilla notes, milk chocolate, lots of nutmeg and peppery spiciness...

Taste - Roasted malt bitterness initially followed very quickly by a strong brown sugar / molasses sweetness, some burnt wood notes, rich dark chocolate mixed with some prunes and ripe plums, lots of peppery and piney hops, some milky vanilla traces, light liquorice, some warming alcohol just coming through...

Feel - Superbly rich and creamy and very full bodied... for such a rich and strong beer this is supremely drinkable as the alcohol is almost completely hidden...

Overall - A world class Impy Stout... one of the best (if not the best) examples i've ever had... highly recommended although a little pricey at £7

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a thin film of light brown foam with good retention and lacing. Rich aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, molasses, dark chocolate, licorice and oak; smells like a dessert. Flavor follows, rich dark malt, smoky and toasted, chocolate, licorice, light whisky. Finishes with char, chocolate and hints of lactose. Medium to full bodied with pleasant creaminess. I was hoping I wasn't going to love this one as it was a pricy little bottle, but this is is really full flavored, well balanced and has a nice oaky, char finish with just a light touch of whisky. High ABV well covered. Delicious.

A - Received this in a trade; was highly looking forward to cracking this. Poured into a snifter. Pours a very thick black. No light penetration. 1 finger of a brown head with very little lacing.

S - Very roasty, hints of smoked/burnt wood, chocolate, a little scotch smell and some cocoa

T - Very smokey. Fudge, chocolate, cocoa. After taste has an even heavier taste of smoked wood. This beer warmed up tastes a little sweeter

M - Coats mouth, Very creamy and sticky

O - I was real excited to have this coming in a trade and it was well worth the hype. The smokeyness is heavy but it's balanced really well. Great characteristics. BA says 13% but bottle says 10.2%. Either way it's fantastic

Bottle from Jeffo. Served in a snifter.

A - Dark tan foam settles to a thin collar, splotchy wisps, and a few specks of lace. Very dark brown body.

S - Roasty, charry, with oak, smoke and perhaps a hint of peat. I'm not sure I'd guess this was whisky barrel-aged, as I might assume it's just a very roasty stout. As it warms there's a bit of lactose and icing sugar sweetness.

T - Taste has more sweetness, leading to improved balance. A nice mix of roast, fudge, dark chocolate, molasses, anise, vanilla, oak, and a mildly peaty whisky finish. Well-hidden booze.

M - There's a bit of warming the reveals the listed 13%, but I probably would have guessed in the 10-11% range. Creamy, soft, rich medium-full body with pleasant active carbonation. Tannic and oaky finish, with only a hint of lingering stickiness on the palate.

D - This beer is really good. Don't understand why it isn't available stateside, as it's the best beer I've had from To Øl. I easily crushed the 33cl bottle during my fantasy football draft.

Pours a dark kola hue with khaki two finger head and lacing everywhere,the nose is a nice combination of whiskey and dark chocolate along with a underlying ocean breeze smell too I like it,the mouthfeel is full and well carbonated with tastes of dark chocolate malts,the slightest hint of whiskey and I mean slight and finished with a slight sourness and overall it's quite tasty and would drink again cheers.
