BARREL AGED DOUBLE TEMPEST is made with double the malt and double the hops that it takes to make Tempest Imperial Stout. Aged in Four Roses bourbon barrels for 9 months, and hopped with generous amounts of Warrior hops, BARREL AGED DOUBLE TEMPEST is full of dense chocolate and deep malt flavours with a rich, long candied bourbon and oak finish. At 15% ABV and 115 IBU, this strong beer ages well for up to 3 years.

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle at the Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting, shared by the ever cool dennoman. Whereas the straight version was a bit of a let down, this one is hitting all the right buttons: intensely roasted, balanced and a nice additional wood character that makes this a well drinkable RIS, of which the alcohol is very well hidden. Nicely done.

Sammy (9973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
RIch looking very dark brown bodied, drunk more than a year aged as this style should be. Above average mouthfeel., this is well malted. Aroma of barreling (the coconut) and chocolate. All comes together in a great taste.

Spab (2938) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
650 ml bottle from brewery retail store (cellared about one year). Pours a virtually black dark brown and moderate-sized light brown head. Aroma is extremely roasty with lots of cocoa, some dark fruit, vanilla and a little bourbon. Flavour is quite roasty but with a nearly as strong sweetness; lots of cocoa, raisin, brown sugar, vanilla, gentle woodiness, bourbon and a little leather. Rich, slick mouthfeel. Not as boozy as I’d have expected, even with the aging. A very impressive beer.

Boutip (5346) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head with light retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with some black chocolates notes with light whiskey notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet roasted malt notes with some black chocolate notes and a whiskey and vanilla finish. Body is full with nice creamy texture and medium carbonation with no alcohol. Very nice beer with smooth drinking features.

biirusaikou (1494) - - NOV 9, 2014
Rich sweet chocolate, vanilla, oak, so sweet you wouldn’t believe the abv but the alcohol slowly warms you. Wouldn’t drink tons of it but a nice cocoa liquor-like digestive.

Krypter (4) - - NOV 3, 2014 does not count
Very smooth, nice delicate mouthfeel, amazing chocolate and rum flavours, heavy alcohol overlay and heavy raisin aftertaste. Very good, hard to walk out of the bar after this.
