330ml bottle at home. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells wood, some sweetness, liqueur, coconut, chocolate, creamy, bourbon. full body, soft carbonation, full creamy mouthfeel. tastes wood, liqueur, very lightly roasted, chocolate, light coconut, some brown sugary sweetness, also light sour notes, hints of dark fruits. finishes with wood and light coffee roast notes and also chocolate. very nice beer. great balance. Not overly complex (compared with other Imp Stouts) but I love the creamy mouthfeel.

Saeglopur (1577) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 11, 2015
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.
