4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is big on the char vanilla oak with a back of coffee, the good bitter kind of roast. Appearance pours like ink with almost no head and no lacing. black. Taste is a bit more bitter than the nose but still crazy smooth, can’t taste the burn at all. Palate is thick and chewy. Overall a really nice stout.

@Basunen 14-8-23: mycket söt fatton. Smaken är full av sötlakrits och bourbon. Snygg balans. Lagom het.

> Insanely silky, rich bourbon barrel expressive, decadent RIS
[ Bottle ][ 375ml ][ motorheadtodd ][ Trade ][ Hotel Room Garbage Glass ][ 8.17.14 ]
>> Dark pour with blood ruby highlights. Lower foam with good retention. Aroma is just silly: orange dark chocolate ball, smoke, buttery rich bourbon, chocolate mousse, cocoa powder, savory. Very rich taste with a shooter like medium hot finish. No fusel white alcohol. Bitter cocoa, rum, and bourbon, brown alcohol warmth. A powerful beer, rich and drinkable with no white alcohol character. Palate is rich, oily, ultra silky. So good.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, wood, coffee, caramel and licorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes and alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Imby.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black colored pour. Small ring of tan bubbles. Not much lacing. Sour aroma of spoiled vegetables and a slight chocolate. Taste is chalky chocolate and the faintest hint of bourbon. Finishes good despite the aforementioned problems.

Soil and manure aroma, very earthy. Mahogany, thin tan head. Tobacco and prune flavor. Unique, but not really something I enjoy.
