COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Internt på bryghuset har striden raset længe: skal en Imperial Stout være rå, potent og voldhumlet - eller skal den i stedet være blød, blid og imødekommende? Med King Of Kentucky var det for en sjælden gangs skyld sidstnævnte fløj, der vandt det battle. Vi bryggede en helt ny Imperial Stout fra bunden, som var en lille smule sødere end normalt og mindre bitter. Den har så fået lov til at hvile sig i 5 måneder på helt friske bourbonfade fra Kentucky, hvilket har tilføjet krydrede vaniljetoner og et strejf af egetræ. Resultatet er ganske fornøjeligt og særdeles harmonisk. Vi må dog samtidig advare mod at undervurdere kongen her - han sparker bagud. Og vi kan ikke anbefale, at man konsumerer mere end tre flasker på en aften.

lusikka (6946) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
500 ml bottle. Cheers veliemboys. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of strong mudcake notes, bourbon and dark chocolate. Strong and rich flavour of roastiness, chocolate, sweet but subtle bourbon notes, biscuit and caramel. Full bodied. Lovely rich mouthfeel. Very well balanced. Bourbon is not overwhelming at all but it is there. Well done.

olio (7344) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
50 cl bottle. Batch #707. BBE 05/2019.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Vanilla and bourbon dominate the aroma, some roasted malty notes. Sweet caramel and vanilla on the flavor too, mild coffee, licorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate and cocoa. Dry burnt palate, lingering sweet vanilla aftertaste. A solid Bourbon IS, a bit too sweet perhaps.

tiong (4564) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
500ml bottle

Batch 707, BBE 05/2019 - Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, vanilla, toffee, oak, wood and licorice. Taste is smooth, slick and oaky with loads of vanilla, bourbon and hints of roastiness. Finish is slick and sweetish with some oak, vanilla, bourbon and roastiness. Okay, quite generic, but balanced bourbon BA IS.

laiti (6821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
50 cl bottle @ olio. Batch #707, BBE 05/2019
Aroma has strong bourbon notes; vanilla and cocoa. Flavour has whiskey, vanilla, some cocoa and alcohol. Also some woody tones in the finish. Becomes somewhat stuffy and sticky at the middle of the glass with the woody tones. Quite typical bourbon-IS. But a delicious one anyway.

NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Flaska, batch 707. Mörkt brun, nästan svart öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. I doften så spelar alkoholen den största rollen. Bourbon med inslag av choklad. Smaken är mycket mer balanserad. Bourbon, vanilj och choklad i harmoni. I stort sett helt utan rostade toner. Sammetsmjuk munkänsla. Ett öl att sitta och sippa på.

SlackerMads (2007) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle batch 707. Pours thick black with a large slowly diminishing brown head. Sweet bourbon in the nose. Thick texture, near flat carbonation, medium/full body. Soft with some heat from the alcohol. Bourbon dominates the flavour; vanilla, coconut, molasses, chocolate, liqourice. Light salty liqourice in the finish. Good.

650. Thanks, R! Pours an opaque black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that falls quickly to wisps. Big sweet roasty dark chocolate nose with sweet apricot and vanilla oak notes. Sticky thick heavy body with soft carb. Roasty sweet dark chocolate and apricot mid palate, that perfect blend of heavy roasty malty grain goodness with sweet softening bourbon accents. Not too heavy on the bourbon, even though it’s in the forefront. Great name, great beer.

empedokles (9) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2015 does not count
Bottle 0,5l. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma roasted caramel and bourbon with a hint of vanilla. Quite sweet finishing a little salty and bitter. Bourbon is definitely coming through and some chocolate, I am getting a little bit of licorice. A great beer although not the best bourbon barrel aged beer I’ve had.
