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.

angel77 (1090) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2014
Botella de 65 cl en cimmeria en el 17-07-2014. Color negro intenso con una espuma incleiblemente oscura y poco persistente aunque genera una buena capa al agitarla. Aromas a maltas tostadas y mucho whiskey con toques de caramelos tostados. Cuerpo fuerte con 10.5 vol y una tremenda sensación de licor y de bourbon con un retrogusto bastante alcohólico que pega un autentico puñetazo el fondo de la boca poco después de tragarla. Sabores intensos, sobretodo al calentar de maltas tostadas con bastantes toques de bourbon que casi domina por completo. Algo de chocolate y cacao en sus últimos tragos, vainilla y bastante maderas empapadas de licor. Muy buena una autentica bomba de imperial stout con tremenda aportación de whiskey. Para repetir sin duda

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle courtesy of goryshkewych. Cheers, George! Pours an inky/ motor oil black with a dark tan head. Beautiful color for a stout. Nose is roast, earth, black coffee, earth, some booze, and hints of baker’s chocolate. Flavor is similar with earth, roast, booze, some unsweet chocolate, and bits of woody booze. So thick that I almost don’t get any barrel, it presents itself in the background, but in a very complimentary fashion. Medium to full in body for a BA stout and very nice overall.

Bottle @ ZZTX. Black Malt, roast, vanilla, bourbon, hints of licorice and salt in the aroma. Malty sweet, roasty flavor with whisky notes, Salt, licorice. Vanilla. Licorice in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet and alcoholic to be really world class.
