Bottle from Systembolaget. Enjoyed at Fermentoren Aarhus with the Dangerous Bottleshares crew. Pours a pitch black with a reddish hue and a small tan head.

RasmusOtt (2307) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle shared with the Dangerous Bottleshares crew. Pours black with a bubbly beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, big bourbon notes, dark dried fruits, weak brownies and just straight forward BA imperial stout. The taste has bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and is overall pretty barrel heavy. Though the balance is pretty standard. Brighter cocoa and a solid malt-profile.

Padron4KM (799) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2016
22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Inky black, creamy tan head. Lace is spotty due to the high ABV. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, prune, oak, coffee, bourbon. Flavor is sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, char. creamy chocolate, sweetened coffee, molasses. Bourbon character, and oaky dryness come out more as it warms.
