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.

TET (2682) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2016
A black beer, a head is medium and dark brown. Aroma has coffee, roastiness, salt liquirice, whiskey barrel, dark fruits and some vanilla. Taste has roastiness, coffee, vanilla, salt liquirice, some fruitness of raisins, also the bitterness is the end. Full bodied, smooth, a hint of stickyness. The barrel aging is quite strong but not too dominating. Complex and powerful. A huge quality is noticed, just as it have in the basic DORIS.

Merci à Alexandre pour le partage! Liquide très noir, foncé et sans couleur surmonté d’un mince anneau couleur mocha annonçant une forte torréfaction. Ce simulacre de mousse, on ne peut pas dire qu’on ne l’a pas cherché. Même après un vigoureux versement, je ne parviens pas à créer de mousse de plus d’un demi centimètre. Suis-je trop vieux? Trop mou? Une quantité plus qu’appréciable de chocolat mi amer au nez. De très agréables arômes de malts chauffés, de whisky, de mélasse me parviennent de ce liquide que j’appréhendais plus violent. Dès la première gorgée, mon palais est enveloppé par ce liquide rond et riche; presque gras. Une pointe d’épices dans cette douce explosion de chocolats. Une amertume modérée attendrit le tout qui sans elle eût été peut-être trop cochon. Effervescence plaisante atténuant les effets capiteux d’une importante torréfaction, un stout qui me plaît beaucoup.

Black color. Bourbon oak nose with vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate. A bitter dark roasted taste balanced by the bourbon barrel, adding sweet hints of vanilla and toffee, some alcohol. Tastes really good!
