COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each year we mature Super Nebula, our Imperial version of Nebula Stout, in unique Bourbon casks before selecting an origin-specific cocoa nib to complement the blend. Every vintage is a unique blend, never to be duplicated.

Bottle shared on the RBWG bus tour (LaZoom!). Dark chocolate brown pour. Pretty nice n’ sweet nose of heavy dark chocolate, lactose sugars, and a touch of bourbon. Mmm! That’s good. There’s chocolate and vanilla sweetness that is perfectly balanced with bourbon wood notes. Well balanced and delicious.

1L btl. Thanks James Birnie! Episode IV (2012). Nose is vanilla, oak, alcohol, liquorice. Black, slight tan head, quickly evaporated, but heavy legs left. Taste is vanilla and oak, slight boozy warmth, doesn’t burn, great balance. Palate is silky, slightly oily but not unpleasant. Whoa! So complex! Give this to a wine snob or whiskey brat and they’d be hooked. This is the most wood and vanilla I’ve ever had with a beer, after 2 yrs I think the cocoa died a bit but its there in the finish. Top 5 I’ve had maybe #2

25.4 ounce bottle from Timfoolery at Christmas, a lot of char and chocolate. Bourbon plays well with the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from IP trade with Aaron. Aroma and flavor is bourbon-soaked, coffee-soaked white cake. Not really sweet, toasty, but remarkably not smoky. Excellent beer.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2013
One Year Old Bottle at Home - One of my favorite Imperial Stouts! Huge bourbon, vanilla, chocolate nose. Bitter Coffee and deep cocoa flavors are washed down in viscous bitter sweet toffee like finish. A delicious barrel aged stout!

2012 bottle. So smooth, blends exceptionally well with these choc chip cookies. Chocolatey, roasty, silky, highly refined. Zero bite, so good.
