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.

In bottle, picked up direct from BOE shop/warehouse, Kings Lynn. Fin, Loz, Ang’ and Julio’ shared this at Moncada brewery, Friday 6th February 2015 Coffee and oatmeal show first of all. Wow this is super smooth, it’s rich, indulgent, totally sumptuous. Some warmth from the BA, but that is to be expected. Pleasant nose not too much bourbon. Creamy, soft mouthfeel, lots of cappuccino. I love this, it’s a superb beer. Btw it’s thick jet black in colour with a mid sized beige head. A8 A5 T9 P5 Ov16 4.3.

Poured deep dark brown with minimal beige head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, bourbon booziness. Full body, flavour as the aroma, chocolate, light coffee. Pretty excellent.

Bourbon, hops, liocrice, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, very cake and brownie like, with a more faint bourbon character. Taste follows up and has a pretty decent mouthfeel, but not full on. Very good beer in general, just lacks a bit umph.

Another great barrel aged beer. Sweet and bourbon flavored. Very similar to a bourbon county stout. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Had at kasers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Bouteille 66cl. Brune foncée presque huile de moteur, col fin moka laissant un filament doré au verre. Arôme est simplement parfait et efficace avec de belles notes de whisky qui accompagnent parfaitement un malté chocolaté, grillé et caramel. Le tout est agrémenté de bonnes effluves boisées et de vanille. Palais est complexe tout en étant savoureux. Le whisky est tout simplement super avec une belle balance des malts. On y note un ajout boisé agréable qui est accompagné de notes de vanille. Petite note de malt crystal, pâle, choco, grillé. Le tout est épais avec une fine note d’amertume en toute fin de bouche. Effervescence reste correcte tirant vers le med/high. Sans se vouloir ętre au top, cette bičre est efficace et hautement complexe dans ses ingrédients tout comme dans sa balance.

AirForceHops (4067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2015
22 oz. bottle. Another very oily viscosity across the top of the stout. No head at this point. Aroma is mild bourbon, vanilla with a defined layer of licorice.

Flavor shows a big bourbon character right from the 1st sip. Secondary flavor has a lasting licorice through the sip, mild oak, light coffee grinds, sticky molasses, light chewy oat meal character in the mouth with a brownie batter texture. The alcohol burn gives a nice warming after the sip.

My 100th Impy Stout rate! Bottle shared by Adrien, thanks! Pours slightly thinner than the regular, black coffee brown with a few dark beige bubbles. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, licorice. Flavor is dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, licorice in the finish. This has strong bourbon character, and the coffee evident in the regular Doris is missing here.

Na, ezen valóban érezni, hogy bourbonos hordóban érlelték! Tele van vaníliával, whiskey aromával, fekete csokis, kávés, pont kellemesen fás, száraz a vége, összerántja a szánkat, de csak annyira, hogy tudjunk még belőle inni még egy kortyot.
