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.

Bottled@PBF IX. Black colour, small white head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol and some sweet malts and syrup. Flavour is similar in a rather thick way, although a bit sweet it’s ok.

Tief malziger Antrunk mit leichten Lakritznoten und deutlichem Espressoaroma. Mild herb, dann sehr bitterschokoladig, vollmundig, Whiskeynoten. Die vorhandene Röstigkeit ist im Hintergrund aktiv. Vanille, nie alkoholisch. Sehr gut! 9/14/12/14/13/14

Bottle split at Bruce’s, thanks to Daniel, 06/03/15. Pitch black with a dirty tan covering that dissipates edgeward. Nose is rich dark fruits, spice, bourbon tones, molasses, dark chocolate. Taste comprises charr, earthy rost, dates, raisens, spice, molasses, bourbon, burnt biscuit, chocolate, liquorice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Ok impy, a touch harsh and not that well joined up for me at times.

On tap at the tap room. Black in the glass, with a dense finger thick tan head. It’s a tad boozy on the nose, with lots of mocha. Dark chocolate, coffee, resiny hops, brown sugar and some licorice too. It’s heavy on the palate, full bodied smooth and warming, with flavors of molasses, mocha and roasted malts. Some booze. Lasting roasted, sweet and warming finish. Nice indeed, but I think I prefer the regular edition. 150616
