3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 vintage bottle received from someone I forget as a part of a CanBIF box. Thanks dude. Pours a good black with a beige rim that leaves good lacing. Nose is chocolate, coconut, light vanilla and light alcohol. Taste is of grapes, coffee, lots of alcohol (but not really bothering) and chocolate. Body is medium-full and carbonation soft. Overall a fine barrel aged imperial stout, less intense than I was expecting (good).

A Beer snob made me drink this. it’s a good-looking beer. It smells like Bailey. The taste is mixed.it has a strong alcohol-taste and bitter as well. This beer has more musculine features. It made me drink.

Poured from the tap. Black with tan head. Getting a bit of the bourbon, some mild chocolate and coffee, subtle leather and tobacco. Good, but not the best imperial stout.

I really enjoyed the hell out of this beer. Rich rich rich and smooth. Its all chocolate when it hits the tongue then the bourbon finish really completes the journey. Im not a stout guy at all, but I bought several. Its roasty, its toasty.

2014. Bouteille partagée. Une robe bien foncée. Un nez de chocolat, mélasse noire et café. L’alcool est bien présent. La bouche est chaude avec des saveurs de chocolat et de mélasse. C’est puissant.
