EBF 2015. Une belle robe presque noire. Un nez intense de chocolat, d’amande et une touche vanille de bourbon. Le liquide a une belle texture huileuse et les saveurs sont agréables de chocolat, de vanille boisée et de noix. C’est intense, comme je les aime.

tom10101 (3586) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Black with a small bubbly brown head and no lacing.

Aroma: Almonds, boozy notes, roasted malts, chocolate, light spiciness and vanilla notes.

Taste: Quite sweet with boozy notes, lots of almonds, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, light acidic presence... quite complex.

Palate: Full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily. Mouth coating. Long lasting roasty finish.

Overall: A bit heavy and hard to drink. Balance is average to good.... it’s really flavorful, but not perfectly cohesive. Good BA RIS.

Sample at EBF, Almond version. Deep deep brown almost black pour with thin brown-ish foam. Aroma of almond, almond butter, roasty almond, unfortunately something a bit solventy, turpentine, chemical, paint thinner aroma. Tastes like almonds, flavor is harsh and boozy, again solventy, light chocolate notes, very harsh. Body is med-full bodied, med carbonation, the almond thing is too much though, way too rich.

Beau corps huileux. Nez riche. Bouche comme un délice. Gros malts. Noix enrobés de chocolat. Cette bière est aux amandes mais il me semble qu’il y a d’autres noix que les amandes. Le bourbon est élégant. beau fond caramel et vanille. Pas étonnant. Densité moyenne. Texture douce ou veloutée. Finale amère : alcool, bois, noix, rôtie. Très bon. En plein dans mes cordes.

Draft at brewpub. Pours the usual dark brown to black color with a smaller beige film. The aroma has dark roasted malts, dark chocolate with a very nice nutty component that pushes this to a new level for me. I enjoy the black walnuts in the oil quite a bit and found this to be on the same level with the addition of bourbon and vanilla to the mix. The flavor has the nut flavors working very well with the base beer; roast, dark chocolate, pecans with some of the black walnut found in the oil, bourbon, vanilla and wood. Medium plus body with a smooth texture.
