COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged in bourbon whiskey barrels to add a wonderful complexity to our massive American Double Imperial Stout. This barrel aging imparts memorable buttery, vanilla-like, and savory whiskey character, making this one of our most complex beers we’ve ever brewed. Another testament to our hard work and dedication in bringing our customers the very best.

Swaroga (1389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
Butelka 66cl. OCZY : piwo jest kompletnie czarne o bardzo malej, brązowej pianie, która prawie całkowicie znika. NOS : piwo ma mocny zapach czarnej czekolady, orzechów, wanilii, tytoniu i alkoholu. Po wstrząśnięciu uwolniłem bardzo wyraźne aromaty skórki pomarańcza, beczek po whisky (bourbon), rozpuszczalnika (a nawet benzyny) i jeszcze raz tytoniu i delikatnie siarki. USTA : prawie bez gazu, tłuste, gęste i klejące. Piwo jest intensywne w smaku i inwazyjne na kubki smakowe niczym półtorak miodu pitnego. Głównie słodkie jak czarna czekolada, Nutella, przypalony karmel. Równie mocne są nuty palone i piekący alkohol. Gorycz jest bardziej palona i podobna do gorzkiej czekolady i tytoniu. Piwo klei się na szklance i skleja usta zalegając i utrwalając ten intensywny smak. ODCZUCIA : prawdziwa "waga ciężka". Fajnie parowałoby się z cygarem. Perfekt piwo "na sen". Należy bez wątpienia do lepszych referencji tego stylu. Amerykan pełną gębą. OCENA : smak : 9/10 pijalność : 3/10 styl : +2

(Bottle) Pours black with a dark brown head. The aroma holds woodsy bourbon upfront with notes of vanilla, fudge, dill and cocoanut. Malt holds liquorice, dark chocolate and coffee (pretty standard but fat). Some resinous hops and brown sugar. The flavour is light to medium sweet, near heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of brutal roast, aggressive hops and firey bourbon. The mouthfeel is round, oily and numbing with soft carbonation. Salt liquorice, heavy roast, resinous hops and bourbon on the finish.

Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, burnt cookies, dark roast coffee, coconut milk, chocolate, hay, charred wood, toasted coconut, hazelnuts and soil. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, dark roast coffee, charred wood, bitter, chocolate, toasted coconut, burnt hay, alcohol and soil. Mouthfeel is fat, viscous, round, slightly roasted astringent and full bodied.

Vulgar yet tasty…

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2014
Flaske. Kulsort ekstrem olieret øl med et lækkert mørkmokkafarvet skumhoved. Duft af sød molasse og bourbon. Smagen er igen domineret af bourbon på den gode måde godt balanceret af ristet malt og fin humlebitterhed. Super lækker øl.
