COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An imperial sweet stout brewed with cherries and cacao nibs, which is then aged in bourbon barrels. This beer is brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller our generous friend from Copenhagen, Denmark. What you have here is a modest attempt to emulate the experience of biting into a chocolate-covered cherry candy. We hope you enjoy it but you never know what you’re gonna get.

laiti (5661) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar
Aroma is sweet but somewhat straightforward with soy sauce, licorice. Flavour has salty licorice, soy sauce, some coffee and distangt rubbery tones. Hides the ABV rather well. Perhaps a bit too salty and I also expect more richness with ABV like this. Starts to feel more rich when this warms up. Bourbon steps forward.

pentaz (1239) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 30, 2014
Draught at Mikkellerbar, Viktoriagade. Pours pitch black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, cherries, wood, dark sugars, fudge, caramel, medium dark bread. Taste is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Body is full, texture is smooth and sticky, carbonation is very soft. Finishes very sweet with cherries, chocolate and dark fudge. This is a very nice treat indeed and almost surprisingly drinkable. The sweetness easily overpowers the sourness from the cherries but it’s a nice laid-back flavour-rollercoaster ride.

Tap. Pours pitch black with a tiny, tan head. Aroma of dark, roasted malt chocolate, caramel, wood, licorice and bourbon notes. Sweet flavor that ends up slightly more dry with alcohol and a hint of bitterness. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft to flat carb. A great impy.
