COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a big and full bodied Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels with lots of roasted malts, but very balanced with heavy hops. Brewed with a top secret root, this beer has an amazingly complex flavor that you must wait for.

Ungstrup (33430) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, soy sauce, and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, soy sauce, roasted malt, wood, and bourbon, leading to a dry, alcohol, and roasted malt. The alcohol leaves a burn on the tongue. Thanks madsberg for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of madsberg. Pours an opaque black with pretty much no head. Sweet Bourbon nose atop some very sweet roast. Solid body, no carbonation whatsoever, slightly tart hard roast, some pruney dark fruit and sweet roast. Lots of warming Bourbon leaving a boozy finish. Lovely - in spite of the lack of carbonation. 311011

Bottle shared at the Croydonia July 2013 Tasting - East Croydon. Thanks to Paul for this one. Pours oily black with a frothy tan head. Nose of chocolate cake, brownies, a bit of dark wood, hints of alcohol. Big sweet flavor with rich dark malt character, light char, dark chocolate, some dark fruits, raisins, light booze, mocha, chocolate syrup, decadent chocolate cake. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderate warmth in the finish, tons more dense chocolate cake, mellow earthy bitterness, brownies, oily chocolate, light burnt wood. Lovely, balanced but still rich and complex. Superb.
