COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

humlelala (1288) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2016
(35 cl bottle courtesy of Tsekouratos, thanks! Bottled: 02/11/2015) Poured at fridge temperature (meter says 13 degrees celsius at surface) into a Rochefort goblet reveals a pitch black body with one finger of toffee head that subsides fairly quickly leaving film and lace. Aroma has notes of dark fruit, toffee, oak and coconut/vanilla/bourbon. The aroma does not in itself betray the high ABV. In the mouth the brew comes across as softly carbonated, with definite roasted notes on the palate and an assertive alcohol warming finish. The body is full but it’s balanced by the alcohol astringency and a bit of bitterness. The texture is oily. The flavour is sweet, slightly ascerbic and somewhat boozy. Definitely a sipper with a bit of a snakebite.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - JUN 19, 2016
12.4%ABV. Imperial Stout. Poured out black and oily with a nice thin tan head. 40ºSRM. Nose from afar, you get sweet funk of molasses, closer you get dark chocolate and the smokiness of coffee. Mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy. Strongly alcoholic and medicinal. Palate has black bread, rye toast spiciness, and bourbon. There is a charcoal, smoky finish with alcoholic heat at the back of the throat. There is also a pleasant full-bodied woody or dried aged wood overtone in the palate that rides the alcohol very nicely. I expected a lot of sweetness and fruit from the way it nosed and poured, but this has all the flavor character of a whisky tasting. Aftertaste of chocolate and some coffee and vanilla. Palate may be a bit harsh for the uninitiated, but should be right up the alley of someone who likes a good rye bourbon. Remember that you won’t be able to taste much of anything else after this one, so make it count. Goes on Favorites List !

Steven_B (113) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Pours black with a large foamy tan head. Fantastic aroma of coffee, bourbon and roasted malts. Taste is delicious. Much like the aroma with some hints of vanilla and a slight booziness. A fantastic beer that is worthy of buying as many as you can get your hands on.

This beer to the average beer connoisseur , would be ranked very highly. Top notch. Hipster status: 1000. However, I am not the average beer connoisseur, I am the inverse. The anti-Christ of beer. And like resultant residual spew of adolescent binge drinkers, this beer has been indexed to receive an inverse proportional rating. Emancipate yourself from inner slavery. -Spew

Tognetta (675) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Totalmente negra, espuma marrom de aspecto cremoso, duradoura. Aroma inicial mais para café verde do que torrado, bourbon, cacau, licor de chocolate com álcool presente e duradouro, o torrado aparece no paladar, de médio dulçor e amargor. Corpo denso e média carbonatação. Final tende a ficar mais torrado, alcoólico. Deliciosa, mas ainda prefiro a alesmith speedway stout.
