@Basunen: vilken härlig doft av bourbon-fat. Smaken har en mycket god balans. Stora chokladtoner, vanilj, söt bourbon och kaffe. Härlig mjuk eftersmak.

Fifty Fifty Eclipse Elijah Craig (Purple Wax 2013) and served in snifter: Opaque with a long lasting frothy head and nice lace. Great woody and char overtone with some leather and tobacco notes too. The coffee roast and dark chocolate keeps this from being one of those too sweet and too bourbon-y Imperial Stouts. MIKEY LIKEY... I am pretty sure that this is my fav from the series so far!!
