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.

neepsntatties (1420) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of "hannont". Colour...basic black with a thin tan head. Nose...chocolate infused molasses with notes of booze and crushed walnuts. Palate...slightly thin body feel but loads of dark chocolate and oaky goodness. There’s anise all around the palate and plenty of chocolate ganache and all of it makes for a fabulously sweet and costing finish.

lillunken (55) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Köpt på gh, Uppsala. Nästan inget skum. Inte så mycket rostade toner, mycket whisky i både doft och smak. En bra whiskylagrad imp.stout men inget som sticker ut.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1001) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours black like dirty motor oil with maroon glints at the edges and a dark brown head (seriously, the darkest head I’ve ever seen). Fine, a few mm, and moderate-fast to fade. Aroma is sap, cookie dough, sweet chocolate, vanilla, toffee, some coffee. Body is thick, heavy, medium-fine carbonation, medium-light burn, syrupy-oily. Flavor is cookie dough, butterscotch syrup, huge bourbon, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, dark roasted (burnt) coffee and toast. Overall, a top-of-the-line imperial stout; highlights are the aroma, which is amazing cookie dough, flavor is dark burnt and lots of bourbon barrel. Wow. One of the best I’ve had.

hohops (548) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Appearance is pitch black and oily, no head at all despite an aggressive pour. Sucks the light out of the room. Aroma- rich chocolate, fudge, chocolate ice cream, black coffee, leather, vanilla, bourbon, boozy, roast malt, hint of tobacco smoke. Yum. Taste- great stuff. Dark, espresso coffee, bitter chocolate, whisky fudge, vanilla, rum and raisin ice cream, plenty of booze, leather, sweetness, dark, boozy fruit. Thick and chewy mouthfeel, oily, coats the mouth. Slightly sweet, whisky-filled finish. Booze-heavy, but still excellent.
