4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black color, beige head that drops to the rim, a few lace blobs. Taste is rich toasted malt infused with dark chocolate and yeast rolls that adds bourbon alcohol warmth on the swallow. Everything drifts slowly from there to a long warm finish. Huge, chewy, complex, balanced, totally rad.

Tap at Beergeek SPb. Black with brown ring.
Aroma is really tasty. A lot of rich dark chokolate, oak and vanilla, bourbon.
Taste the same but too boozy. Nice dark fruits flavours. Good warm effect. I like so.

Draft at Pony Bar HK with Paul and Andrew. Pours a deep, dark brown body with no head; some minor lacing. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of rich roast, lots of chocolate, marshmallows and sweet chocolate syrup. I didn’t get too much alcohol distraction on the palate either, and at nearly 14%, that’s pretty impressive. A solid offering from Anderson Valley.

Decent beer in the series. Reminds me that barrel aging a huge ABV beer doesnt make it great. Aroma was roasted malt, dark chocolate and heavy bourbon. Was a little thin. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/black with a tuin tan film for a head. Taste was good. All the flavors of a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and notes of distant coffee. The strong alcohol hides the flaws of this beer being thin and one dimensional. Mild carbonation.

With Z, over Indian food, pours a deep black pour with a two finger breadth Java head. Nose is deep chocolate, malt, whiskey and alcohol ! Taste is bittersweet thick chocolate malt, with alcohol and dark fruits. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long sweet chocolate whiskey ending !
