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.

gyllenbock (7226) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, some bourbon and light oak. More bourbon in the taste. Smooth and with a thick body. The aftertaste was long.

@ Basunen 16-2-27: En mycket trevlig doft av choklad och kaffe. Inte så stor fatton. Smaken är mycket fyllig och stor av bränd torr kaffe och bitter choklad. Underbar.

mariuspoenari (1203) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2016
65cl bottle. Pours pitch black and oily with a very small espresso head that disappears quite quickly. Smells like bourbon, oak, dark cherries, cocoa and dark chocolate. Tastes like whiskey, oak sourness, chocolate, cocoa, a bit of coffee and alcohol. The alcohol feels more present in this beer than in the base beer, probably because of the whiskey notes. Smooth mouthfeel with almost no carbonation and a hot and cocoa-bitter aftertaste.

Christian (12569) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2016
On tap at Ølbaren. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice and vanilla-coconut-bourbon. Sweet, dark flavour, super complex porter and bourbon character, but perhaps a little too sweet.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Very dark pour, reddish brown head. Aroma is fudge, vanilla, burnt sugar, coffee, bourbon and light leather. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, vanilla, some raisin, bourbon, a slight smoky. Very nice, although I still prefer the non barrel version.

KW92 (1093) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 27, 2016

Degustowane w "Chmielarnia Marszałkowska", [KRAN/BECZKA - poj. 0.25 ml]
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, bardzo drobna, po pewnym czasie znika kompletnie .
AROMAT: Intensywny. Niesamowicie bogate. Kawa, praliny, gorzka czekolada, kakao, dżem z owoców leśnych, nuty drewniane (beczkowe), nuty wanilii, nuty whisky, nuty palności.
SMAK: Z początku wydaje się być nawet nico słodkie, trochę jak dobre whisky Posmak gorzki, kawowy, długi. Oleista konsystencja, zalepiająca usta. Alkohol wyraźny, nie gryzący, a raczej podbijający doznania smakowe.
OGÓLNIE: Niewątpliwie bardzo udany RIS. Wersja bazowa sama w sobie jest kompleksowa i dosyć złożona, natomiast przy użyciu beczki uzyskana kolejne ciekawe nuty. Słowem wszystko pięknie zagrało i tak mamy oto świetnego RIS-a.
