4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige / tan head. Nose is very rich, full of bourbon barrels, heavily roasted (nearly burnt) malt, dark chocolate, and more bourbon - extremely complex. Flavour is intensely complex and rich, full of deep dark chocolate, exquisite bourbon barrels, a little treacly notes, and some wood. Extremely rich and deeply layered, with the barrels used to perfection - not overburdening in any way. The sweetness factor is low, which is how I prefer my impie stouts. Finishes on notes of bourbon and rich, barely sweetened dark chocolate. A wonderful BA rendition of Hel & Verdoemenis.

Color is very dark black, opague. Very strong alcohol smell. Taste: coffee, alcohol present but good. Oily texture, yet somehow smooth as well. Soft aftertaste and finish.

Itty bittie bottle from Alvinne beershop. Bottle # 955. Pours very brown/black with a couple of tan bubbles. Aroma is to die for. Bourbon,oak and chocolate. Full bodied with miniscule carbonation. Flavor is burnt malt,bourbon, chocolate, and possibly coffee. Mild heat. Thick and syrupy, but the oakiness offsets that. Super!
