Draught @ Fermentoren. Pours pitch black with a deliciously looking creamy mocha head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon and wood. Flavour is bittersweet, Full bodied, creamy and smooth texture, carbonation is on the soft side. Finish is chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Very smooth and unlike other impy’s, I actually like this one better when it’s colder than it should be

Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a pitch black body with a large creamy, short-lived beige head. Nose is sweet malty caramel tones, vanilla, bubble gum, mild bourbon notes and hints of chocolate, licorice and roasted bread. Taste is licorice, bourbon, wood, chocolate, coffee, biscuits, burnt toast and hints of caramel, nuts and mild smoke. Full body, medium carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a thick pitch black color with a nice brown head. Aroma has a big barrel character, with lots of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, and a solid background of dark roasted malts. Same in the flavor, great roasted malts with the barrel shining through. Excellent imperial stout. Would love to try the BA DORIS!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow...Dark black pour with about half a finger of carmel head. Raisin (and other dark fruits) on the nose. Similar in taste, which starts a bit thin but becomes full bodied by the middle of the tongue. Finishes nicely with smooth bourbon and vanilla. A little to sweet for me which drops the palate score but great beer and even better day!
