Pours a pitch black with a minimal head. Aroma of Vanilla and Bourbon. Taste is sweet and medium bitter. In the mouth is sticky, a lot of molasses, chocolate, coffe and booze. I was expecting a little bit more of this two imperial stouts monsters.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Collaboration brew, a barrel aged stout with rye. Sticky, dense, creamy, stable, yellowish wite head over a very dark burgundy beer, almost black. Strong aroma of tawny port, marzipan, milk chocolate, rye bread, bourbon, basil, candied orange, banana, coffee powder, black olives, brown rhum, cooked meat, vanilla and mocha ice cream. Densely sweet, ’praline’-like onset, banana and marzipan again, deep rye sourishness throughout the palate with even somewhat drying effect, very thick and fat chocolatey and caramelly maltiness, umami taste blending in with the sweetness and sourishness, finishing dryly sourish, lightly bittering from roasted malts, very woody (tannins), umami touch, warming alcohol. Another interesting Molen creation, though perhaps not as appealing to my personal taste as some of their other stouts.

This poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of Bourbon, booze, and dark fruits. Flavor was ok barrel, light Belgian dark underneath but a lingering booze burn.

Bottle. Pours a viscous black oily body barely producing any bubbles or head. Aroma of dates and raisins along with caramel and bourbon. Taste is thick caramelly bourbon riding on a thin carpet of lightly sour woody notes. Hints of leather, liquorice and balsamic vinegar. Vinous port notes as well. Full bodied and very softly carbonated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to Adrien. Aroma is a healthy dose Belgian yeast with light chocolate, molasses and maybe even a light berry hint. Flavor shows a light oak upfront with milk chocolate hints in the center with the yeast showing up strong in the finish. Secondary notes of dark fruit and sugar.
The ABV is hidden really well but this bottle has sat for a good amount of time. The carbonation level is lower with a soft mouthfeel. This has a nice flavor but the bottle was extremely over priced at $9.00 for a 12 oz.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a friend. Strong and complex smell with caramel, bourbon, oak and dried fruit. Similar taste. Qutie sweet which balance out the booze from the barrel. The barrel gives it a very nice complex touch with lots of oak, vanilla and bourbon. Almost no carbonation but that is a plus in my book.
