We’ve matured our Russian Imperial Stout in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to create the perfect blend of flavors. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon add another level of complexity to this beer’s already massive flavor profile of chocolate, Ryan Bros. Coffee, and roasted barley. Designed to be enjoyed now or aged in the bottle for years to come, this special release is truly a unique beer that is smooth as it is rare.

Bottle, 2013 vintage, thnx to bytemesis. Really looking forward to this one. Pours an inky black beer with a big, beige brownish head on top. Aroma is massive licorice, bourbon, licorice and sweet caramel vanilla fudge to a whole new level. Incredible. Flavor is incredible strong, balanced, full of bourbon notes, base beer is certainly there. Very long, strong bitter sweet bourbon finish, well carbonated and overall a great beer! Awesome!

Har väntat på denna länge. Så mycket man hört o läst om denna. Har inget annat att säga än att denna balans i en öl har jag aldrig varit med om. Den som kommer närmast är hand & seal från Brooklyn brewing. 100/ 100 ??

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Aroma of dark mocha, clean bourbon, with almond, coconut and honey notes. Taste of chocolate, loads of it, mudcake like, hazelnuts, with some nice light bourbon inputs. A bit thin.

Bottle. Pitch black with a 1 finger mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, licorice and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is a little fusel up front, giving way to oak barrel, coffee, vanilla, waffle cone and chocolate. Rich and sticky. Fantastic.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av kaffe, bourbon, fatkaraktär, vanilj, marsipan och torkad frukt. Kärv, fin sötma, stor beska. Fina smaker i en bra balans. Gott!

Vignale (3372) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2015
Flaska från SB. En maffig IS med en extra dimension av kaffe och bourbon. Drucken tillsammans med Fiftyfifty Eclipse Elijah Craig 18y som referens. Alesmtih är lite stramare, mer kaffe (såklart), lite mer beska och något större spritighet och bourbonen slår inte igenom lika mycket. Vilken som är godast? Hugget som stucket men som dessertöl där den lilla extra sötman och bourbonen kommer till sin rätt vinner nog Eclipsen denna giganternas kamp. fantastiskt gott hur som helst.

A great beer. Very malty and almost thick. I personally prefer Bells Expedition Stout but that’s just a personal opinion
