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.

Bourbon Barrrels do it better! A great stout to begin with and now even better. A great, strong wood flavor and smoth texture. Definately give this one a try!

Spent my entire savings on two of these, it was worth it. Bought in Oslo at Cafe Sara, it deserves the praise. This beer deserves the hype, would love to try one that has a few years of aging under its belt.

This is a great beer - everyone knows that. An outstanding bourbon aged stout, no doubt. However, I’m not sure it’s worth all the hype. If you’ve never tried it, it should definitely be on your list. I wouldn’t break my neck to get it though. I actually prefer Sunday Morning Stout.

laakus (92) - Nossebro, - MAY 28, 2016
2016 edition, 12,4 ABV. Bottled 03/03 2016 Pours black with a thick brown foam, long lasting. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, bourbon and I also imagine I found some licorice there too. Taste is mainly chocolate, coffee and roasty tones and after a while a harsh finish when the bourbon tones hits in. The licorice turns more obvious as the beer is getting warmer. Creamy and pleasant mouthfeel. Excellent beer of course though I am not still convinced the barrel aging makes the imperial stouts better. Will be interesting to check out how tthis batch ages,

PabloZab (977) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Butelka 355ml. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana jasno brązowa, drobna, obfita, bardzo trwała jak na taki woltaż, dokładnie oblepiająca szkło. W aromacie paloność i czekolada podkreślona nutami beczkowymi, szlachetnego alkoholu, lekko słodkiego, takiego likierowego i subtelnymi nutami wanilii, dość intensywny i mega przyjemny. A w miarę upływu czasu nuty beczkowe, drewniane stają się coraz bardziej wyraźniejsze. W smaku mega gładka czekolada, likierowy alkohol, goryczka palono-alkoholowa leciutko drapiąca w przełyku ale bardzo przyjemna z wyraźnym efektem rozgrzewania choć sam alkohol (12.4 w wersji 2016) bardzo dobrze ukryty. Piwo leciutko oleiste, pełne w odczuciu, dość pijalne jak na swoją moc choć zdecydowanie pośpiech jest zbędny i degustacja powinna trwać bardzo długo. Bardzo dobry stout a leżakowanie w beczce po bourbonie nadaje piwu szlachetności choć nuty beczkowe są tylko dodatkiem i nie dominują piwa choć nadają mu wyjątkowej wytrawności, takiej drewnianej, leciutko ściągającej, bardzo przyjemnej.

Extremely well balanced BA stout. No booze, awesome coffee and vanilla flavor, dangerously drinkable. I would love to have multiple cases of this beer and drink every freaking day.

Bottle generously shared for breakfast by Arturo-sama! 2016 version. Rich and decadent just as I like for the style, lots of vanilla and espresso, brown sugar, cocoa, oak, just enough bourbon bite, touch of spice, dangerously smooth, nice dry finish. Perfect Saturday breakfast warmer :)

Flavour is roast malty. sweetish, molasses, chocolate & coffee, woody oak, bourbon, boozy, some spicy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, dry warm boozy woody oak bitter finish. Very drinkable indeed.

kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mycket av fatlagringen bourbon , vanilj, kaffe och choklad. Fyllig med lagom beska. Det blir inte så mycket bättre!!
