COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This thick, rich ale was brewed with plenty of caramel and roasted malts, and subtly spiced with American Chinook and Willamette hops. It boasts flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with raisins and dried fruit soaked in sherry. Weve accentuated the natural smokiness of the brew by adding a small amount of beechwood-smoked malt and aging the brew in an oak whiskey barrel, which also adds notes of oak and vanilla.

S: Oak, dark dried fruits, alcohol at the fore - dark chocolate and coffee to follow. All toasted. A: Pours black, though not too thick - faded mocha head that dissipates quickly T: Dry - toasted oak and caramel - toffee sweetness lined with alcohol P: Thin for a stout - active carbonation - lingers well O: Good stout, not amazing. Would definitely drink again, though I am anxious to get my hands on the bourbon/brandy barrel aged black cauldrons

pours pitch dark with a rich and foamy thick head. Smoky coffee and chocolate aroma, and incredible taste to follow. Hits sweet right away, gets rich with coffee and chox flavors, strong finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: This smells absolutely wonderful. Deep roastiness with plenty of sweetness to make this a rich, decadent treat for the nose. Chocolate, caramel, and hints of molasses. 3.5 T: Smells better than it tastes, but its not bad. Lots of roast, but not as sweet as I thought it would be. Less chocolate and caramel too. Moderate roasty bitterness. 3.0 M: Heavier medium body. A bit too much carbonation, but okay. Lacking creaminess. 3.5 D: Decent beer. I just wish it tasted like it smells. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-06-2012 20:08:23

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle bought in Chicago 2011. Almost black with a medium tan head. This was a relaxed Imperial Stout. Soft and easy to drink. A bit sweet with notes of "milk", roasted malt, some bitter chocolate and coffee. Descent.
