Bottle @ Julekranse Share. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate, light coffee, huge vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, milk chocolate, butterscotch, light malty. Taste has light coffee up front, dark chocolate transitioning into huge butterscotch, vanilla and milk chocolate, subtle roasty finish. Holy fuck this is good!
Pours black, no real head. Smell is full, sweet, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is full, intense, sweet, chocolate, vanilla, syrupy. Very nice. Sweet, but not overly so. Ice cream, liquid goodness.

At this time, this is #27 on the list of Imperial Stouts. I've had it for at least 2 years, kind of forgot about it. Pours like motor oil, just a small bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is the sweetest most decadent vanilla and dark chocolate. Allowed this to warm up...wow, like chewing on a vanilla bean which is certainly overpowering It's not cloying but it does have a caramel chocolate bar sort of flavor or even 3 muskateers. yet not too sweet. Solid beer overall. I love the coffee throughout.
Bottle at bumba. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon vanilla, sweet maple and candy. Taste has thick bourbon, chocolate, milk, caramel fudge and sweet molasses. Amazing.
