Color caoba oscuro con escasa espuma color crema. Aromas de licor, pasas, madera. En boca es densa e intensa de sabor con un inicio dulce, afrutado y licoroso seguido de un amargor tostado equilibrado e igualmente con toques de alcohol. Muy rica.

very dark, cofee-like colour, half-inch creamy brown head; aroma of vanilla, oak barrel, dried cherry, dark chocolate, some smoke and roasted coffe; taste of heavy roasted malt, chocolate, liqueur, syrup and some alcohol - excellent beer...my only problem is: it is hard to understand how it was categorized here as a belgian strong ale...it is definitely an imperial stout - according to its label, a rye imperial stout...

Dark brown color, small beige head. Toffee and caramel dominates the flavor. Medium to full-bodied. Caramel, maybe hints of wood and hops, quite sweet beer. Need ageing certainly.

Bottle. Pours darkest Brown/Black with a thin, black coffee tan head. Aroma of heavy, woody bourbon with a mild vanilla. The beer is very full bodied. Amazing thickness and great effect from the barrel aging. Nice thick dryness to finish. Lightly sweet liquorice and roast malt flavours give way to creamy bourbon woodiness. Totally delicious.
