Tasted at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours thick, oily black with a thin tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is tons of vanilla bourbon, with traditional milk and dark chocolate malty imperial stout. The flavor is really more focused on the bourbon, fairly sweet vanilla, fudge brownie, really bourbon forward. The body is full with light carbonation and a long bourbon and brownie finish. Very nice.

Bottle thanks to Team North Jersey. Pours black with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong vanilla bean, wood, roast, cocoa. Thick body, chewy, roast, similar flavors to nose, nice sweetness, very nice.

From notes. Had this one at Doug’s house on August 1. 750 mL bottle, 2014 vintage. The pour is black as night. It’s thick and heavy with a subtle ring of dark/medium brown head that leaves no trace. The aroma is surprisingly sweet. There is a great vanilla. Lots of charred oak and a light bourbon that bland with a roasted malt. It’s not overly complex, but the important factors are there. The flavor is excellent. There is more vanilla and bourbon that come out. The charred oak balanced the roasted malts and offset the sweetness just enough. The mouth feel is thick and viscous with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet vanilla and bourbon finish. This thing is just beautiful.

Bottle shared. Black with an amazing dark brown but fairly short lived head. Aroma of huge bourbon and vanilla upfront with roast, chocolate, oak barrel and booze. Flavour is heavy sweet and light bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

(Bouteille): Une version définitivement plus vanillée mais un peu moins riche. Le bourbon peinture bien le palais également.

markextrae (3995) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
bottle shared by a friend. original 2014 batch. poured a deep black colour with a slight mocha coloured ring on top. nose is still hit with a nice sweet vanilla dose. sweet bakers chocolate, roasted malts, cacao, light bourbon, all sorts of sweet sticky belgium chocolate. really incredible on the nose. taste is sweet vanilla, dark sweet chocolates, pralines. vanilla ice cream. more vanilla as it starts to warm. all rounded with a perfect balance of bourbon barrel. really an incredible world class stout. but i have to say that the regular bourbon ANTEAD is allready perfect on it’s own.

Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Almost the same as the regular, a bit thin and muddled, but vanilla does give an added sweetness which is appreciated.
