Erzengel (7324) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Smooth fresh beginning. Nice smooth brown malt with a smooth alcoholic whisky in the background. As the whisky is not too distinctive here, the beer is in total a bit flat in aroma. The Imperial Stout is great smooth and round, but the wood is soft in the background and the whisk is only in its alcoholic aroma there. The beer is a bit sweetish as there is no real counterpart. The aftertaste is wood with smooth sweetish milk chocolate.

Bottle, 2012. Pours opaque black with a smallish tan head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is roasted chocolate, bourbon, coconut, vanilla. Flavor is fully sweet and light bitter, lots of bourbon, but not overpowering. Nice blend of stout and barrel here. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. One of the good ones.

2012 bottle. Blue wax. Nose is huge in the fudge and vanilla. Light booze. Nearly black. Garnet highlights. Minimal head. A lightly oxidized lightly papery mouthfeel. Fudge and light chocolate with that still lingering paper oxidation. Light alcohol warming. Overall the mouthfeel and oxidation kill this beer. I have had many other 5050 BA Stouts that are way better.

2012. Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, whisky, dark fruits, touch of vanilla, molasses. A bit smoky in the flavor. Creamy body. Very nice.
