4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from a fresh bottle into a Hoppin Frog snifter. Appearance is like old engine oil with a one finger tan head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, and whiskey. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, whiskey, licorice. There is also a backend hoppiness and slight smoke. Palate is incredibly smooth and fills the mouth with a nice viscous presence. If you haven’t had this you need to find a bottle. Well worth your time and effort. Cheers.

Piękna drobna, brązowa piana. Przypomina spienione lody czekoladowe.
Opada zupełnie. W smaku ciemne słody, wyraźny chmiel, lekka kwaskowośc na końcu.
Alkohol bardzo dobrze zamaskowany, ale przyjemnie rozgrzewa.

Big chocolate and bourbon aromas. Silky, chocolaty flavors with vanilla and bourbon undertones on the finish. As good as I imaginied it would be!

65cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 07-06-2014.
Shared with lukasmh.
In short: a mighty rounded Imp. Stout..
Pours black with nice little very tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Liquor, wood, roasty, coffee and cocholate aromas. Medium body, flat carbonation, viscous texture. Taste is quite bitter, some vanilla,chocolate, coffee, liquor notes. Very smooth and well balanced, alcohol noticeable but well integrated. Ends bitter and quite dry. Really enjoyable and lovely.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 ounce bottle from the source into a Hoppin Frog brandy snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a thin, khaki colored head of foam. Spotty lacing. The aroma has a big whiskey presence, but it melds well with the roast, dark fruit, and leather of the base beer. The vanilla and oak aspects of the barrel come through more in the taste and balance the base beer out nicely. Thick, chewy mouthfeel with a subtle carbonation. Delicious beer.

Draft at the testing room. Pours pitch black with thin mocha head. Aroma of oak, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, roast. Full body, really creamy, slightly oily texture. A bit hot with strong bourbon nots but a noticeably fuller body when tried next to BORIS
