Big, bold, black and aged in bourbon barrels with ... vanilla beans. The lengthy barrel conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (12659) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 13, 2015
Weiche Vanillenoten, geringe Süße, etwas künstlich wirkend. Die alkoholische und schokoladige Malzigkeit gefällt, brennt aber zum Ende etwas. Nett. 10/9/12/12/9/11

Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey’s place. Thanks Ariel. Black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, licorice. Sweet flavor with vanilla, caramel, chocolate, some booziness, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. A bit too boozy.

Black pour, small of white to espresso head. Nice vanilla and roast on the nose, with some background booze as expected. Flavor follows with just the right balance of roast and vanilla. Really enjoyed this one.
