Black bodied, aged, woody alcohol. Rich mouth feel, well aged but not a huge fan of bourbon aging. Well done brew. Not too thick. (Oudejaarsticken. Shared by Julien, many thanks!)

remice2 (151) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
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
