Bottle 750 ml. Pours black with tiny beige head. Aroma and taste: chocolate, bourbon, coffee, vanilla and alcohol. Great mix. Bourbon barrel aging really add something to this already good ber.

imperial stout du bilboquet.arômes de chocolat et café et bourbon. moins grasse que je ne l’imaginais assez pétillante et subtile,expresso avec une touche vanillée suivit d’alcool qui réchauffe la gorge .Mais il y a aussi un petit aspect terreux dans la final dialcool que j’aime bien.Cela apporte le coté boisé tout en douceur et bien balancé. Bière d’automne facile a boire et quand même chaleureuse,bonne sweet imperial stout

Bottled at SBWF. Near black, beige head. Brandy and chocolate dominate the nose. Mid sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Cocoa and coffee, brandy and vanilla. Mid bitter finish. Mellow and highly likable.

oh6gdx (22403) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottled@SBWF2014. More or less black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is spices, some liquorice, roasted malts, coffee and some sweetish wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, liquorice, some roasted malts, coffee, mild sweet alcohol notes as well as some slight berryish notes too.

TBone (13846) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle at SBWF2014. My 100th Canadian rating. Dark black color, small brownish head. Aroma is weird mix of wilderness, paper and toast. Medium-bodied. Chocolate, wild yeast (mellow) and caramel. Quite odd beer.

I bought this in April and tried to forget about it for a year, but my friend and I decided to split it last night. It’s tough to fault this beer, as it offers everything you would expect from a bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, but it DOES lack a certain wow factor. Nose is nice roasted notes with caramel, cocoa and molasses. Taste is cocoa, a bit of coffee, molasses and liquorice, with a surprisingly subtle bit of bourbon and vanilla. Body was a bit lighter than I was expecting, but overall it’s nice and well-balanced, and the alcohol is surprisingly well-hidden. Very drinkable, but definitely not the best IS I’ve ever had.

Koelschtrinker (12461) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Malziger, leicht süßer Antrunk mit milden Kaffeenoten. Für ein Imperial Stout sehr süffig, dennoch vollmundig, die Kaffeenoten steigern sich. Leichte Bourbonnoten, passend. Weich schokoladig, geringe Bitterkeit. Sehr gut! 11/12/11/12/8/11

75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours black color with a small head. Bourbon is strong on the nose, some berries and roasted malts. Berries and wood on the flavor, bourbon, vanilla and caramel also. Dry malty palate.

lusikka (7048) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Aroma of rich bourbon notes, vanilla, roastiness and earthiness. Rich roasted flavour with bourbon sweetness, wood, vanilla and biscuit. Full bodied. Oily mouthfeel. Sweet finish with wooden notes. Great.

RexTalionis (2985) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. A very dark black beer with a beige head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Wood, vanilla, bourbon, cocoa powder and hints of roasted coffee in aroma. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Roasted malts and coffee in taste. There’s that bourbon vanilla as well in taste, but not in a agrressive way. Nice and balanced brew.
