COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

mathieuc (3120) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours a dark hrown with a brown rim on top that leaves some lacing. Nose is of chocolate, coconut, vanilla and soy sauce. Taste is also showing clear signs of age with a lot of roasted malt and more soy sauce. Medium-full body, medium carbonation and a pretty smooth mouthfeel. A bit hot. Good but slowly dieing.

Butelka. Aromat mocno karmelowy, lekko mleczny, przypomina krówkę. Troche czekolady. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekko słodki i gorzki. W smaku lekka paloność, czekolada, kakao.

tom10101 (4982) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle (12 oz). Shared by czar, gracias! Black with a medium brown head, good retention, leaving good lacing. Aroma is soft with roasted malts, vanilla, liquorice, raisins, hints of bourbon and berries. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted malts, vanilla, liquorice, raisins, hints of acidity, mild oak spiciness and hints of alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky finish. Liquorice finish. Lack a bit of body. Too much liquorice for my liking but otherwise a well executed barrel-aged RIS where the barrel isn’t overwhelming.

Big black beer. Nice aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee, and smoke/tobacco? Doesn’t seem like 10% alcohol. Big flavor chocolate/espresso with a nice bite.
