330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore, Brunn/Gebirge.
Black body, with a medium, dense, creamy, coffee colored head.
Wonderful aroma of bourbon, coconut, vanilla, melting chocolate, coffee, some dried fruits.
Taste is as delicious, with coffee, wood, bourbon, coconut, dark chocolate, liquorice, some tobacco.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes warm, roasty-bitter, dry, with coffee, wood, liquorice, dark chocolate, tobacco.
Very tasty! Brilliant example of a Bourbon BA Imperial Stout, greatly balanced, with the bourbon not too dominant. Very well hidden alcohol. The only little flaw is a slightly too roasty-bitter finish for my taste, otherwise just delicious.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Haand Festival. A black one, topped by a finger-thick, creamy, tan head. Looking absolutely gorgeous. The aroma is almost equally wonderful, with chocolate and coffee dominating, still leaving room for the booze and a faint woody hint. The flavor is sweet, but far from too sweet, and there’s s fine bitterness bringing some balance. Brown sugar, booze and even more focus on the chocolate and coffee than in the aroma. It’s full-bodied, warming and with a dryish, lasting finish. Wow, this was a treat. 140524

Black with coffee coloured head. Sweet bourbon aroma but also with some dark, roasted malts. Flavour does have a roasted, coffee bitterness but the bourbon sweetness keeps up its presence. Smooth, silky, rich.
