Danish: Denne kraftige Imperial Stout er lagret 3 måneder på Whisky fade fra destilleriet Stranahans. Destilleriet som ligger i Denver, Colorado, USA, er det første micro destilleri i Colorado og omkring Rocky Mountains. Destilleriet ligger ved foden af The Rockies, og får deres råvarer fra bjergene. Vandet som kommer fra den sne der er på toppene om vinteren, filtreres gennem trækul for et fjerne alle urenheder, og bibeholder derfor alle dets smagsstoffer og mineraler. Alkohol: 11,5 %. Holdbarhed: 10 år. Bør nydes ved 10-12 grader C.

Loads of character from the barrel, similar to BA gonzo. Aroma and flavor is whisky, oak with vanilla notes, chocolate and coffee. Delicious!

GT (9933) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 2, 2012
250mL thanks to anders37. Deep, clear sepia pour with cola highlights. Thinning, tan head. Nose is quite nice: muted bourbon, big umami and medium soy, cinnamon, sweet chocolate. Muted fusel notes. Taste is quite thin, very thin for style, with a hefty dose of ash and dirty earth. Aftertaste is a bit boozy and mouthfeel is so intensely watery that it feels like a mixed drink from a bar like a splash of Kahlua atop a vodka water. Probably the thinnest mouthfeel of any 11% + abv I’ve ever experienced.

In bottle, thanks Craig! A black beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is a little salty with leather, liquorice, caramel, roasty malt and alcohol. Similar flavours with chocolate, caramel, roasty malt and salty liquorice. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

riversideAK (6055) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Woody, barrely aroma, a little musty, moss booze, wood, alcohol, light vanilla and chocolate. More or less black pour with islands of tan foam. Flavors of basement, bitter roast, a little inky black patent malts acridness. Earthy roasty and woody finish. Light sweetness from the bourbon. Becomes a little fruitier as it opens up and sweetness emerges. A touch hot as well.

25 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu.
Rated on 20110729.
Pitch black colour with small head. Aroma of lots and lots of vanilla and chocolate, some whiskey-like alcohol too. Flavour of dark roasted malts, lots of vanilla, peat and some dry mocha-like chocolate. Palate is quite bitter but the after taste softens it down nicely.

25 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. #1501, batch 52, BBE 20-03-2018
Aroma has lot of vanilla from bourbon. Flavour has somewhat stinging whiskey, but it does not disturb much though. More disturbing is the alcohol that comes trough. Some vanilla and hints of smoke do appear in the taste too. The whiskey dominates a bit too much.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2011
250 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Batch #52, bottle #1029.
Pours a pitch black colour with a small, beige, foamy head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, sausage, oak and some dried fruits. Flavour of roasted malts, sweet fruits, vanilla, oak and toffee. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel. It takes some time for the oak to kick in. Alcohol is very well hidden. Nice one.
