Wow, c’est intense cette bière là! Je ne suis pas un grand amateur de stouts et, même si cette bière se veut en fait une "lager noire", elle me rappelle immédiatement pourquoi ce type de bière n’est pas mon préféré. On dirait un dessert! C’est sucré et bourré de notes de chocolat, de café, de cupcakes. Le vieillissement en fût d’alcools forts accentue ces notes de torréfication et en ajoute de nouvelles.

Remarquez, je n’ai pas dis que ce n’était pas une bonne bière. Je ne doute pas une seconde qu’elle soit considérée comme une très grande bière par les amateurs du style! L’alcool y est merveilleusement caché et il n’y a pas de défaut majeur, si ce n’est que de ne pas être d’un style que j’apprécie particulièrement! Bref : recommandée, mais pas pour moi.

Magnificent imperial porter, the bourbon imparting more than cognac. Very smooth mouthfeel. Wonderful drinkability.

Torrefacto (743) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 20, 2015
Negro opaco y espuma beis compacta. Aromas intenso y equilibrados de chocolate, bourbon, brandy, frutos , manzana dulce y madera. Cuerpo medio, inició dulce de bourbon y achocolatado intenso que deja paso a un sabor afeitado y un final de amargor suave tostado y seco de madera. Birrote.

ametras (557) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
[2014] 750ml bottle. Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Flavors are dark fruits, molasses, chocolate, licorice, roasted malts, vanilla, oak, bourbon and brandy. Nice alcohol warmth, but never boozy. Prominent in the aroma, those spirit flavors are more cohesive in mouth. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. A nice treat for a sweet tooth.

Holy crap! Definitely the best of 2015 so far. Pours a purely opaque black with a thick but already dissipating creamy tan head. The nose is pure barrel aroma with sultry brandy notes with rich and complex bourbon aromas. Smoky and earthy with light fruity and roasted notes. An underlying robust malt with heavy espresso and vanilla note swirling into a behemoth of a brew. The first sip is a bit sweet with a milk chocolate likeness that runs into heavy roasted notes and big coffee, licorice and vanilla bean flavours. Smooth and rich barrel notes with mild smoke and toasted flavours. Woody and earthy notes blend together. The finish is heavy with complexity but incredibly smooth and delicate. One of the best beers of my life. The barrel influence is remarkable and impeccable

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
2014-12-31. Black body with a modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is quite boozy and bourbony. Sweet vanilla character, somewhat overwhelmed dark malt base. Flavour has rich dark malt foundation and good amount of vanilla and bourbon. Simple but lovely. Medium bodied palate, soft to light carbonation. A bit too heavy on the bourbon and booze at times for my tastes but fairly nice overall. Bottle at Volo, Toronto.

j12601 (7248) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle shared with Dany, Rudy, Eric, and my wife at Be Bap in Montreal. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Big bourbon and warm wood, hints of cherries and dark stone fruits over dark chocolate. Medium bodied, rich cocoa and sweet wood, chocolate and stone fruit. Cocoa, warm brandy, vanilla and bourbon. Incredibly smooth, chewy, lovely. Alcohol peeks through at the end but quite subtle.

2013 edition. Black with a short tan head. Aroma is oak, vanilla. Boozy and sweet barrel, fruity and sticky. Very good, much better than previous years.

Ferris (6310) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle - Boozy barrel notes and dark roast. Jet brown black with a rich beige head. Sweet. Dark malts and nice barrel sweetness. Well balanced, on the sweet side but nice to drink.

Wow, quel délice! Évidemment, le bourbon prend beaucoup de place (normalement, je déteste ces produits qui goûtent trop l’alcool fort et peu la bière) mais c’est très bien dosé. La vanille est bien présente au nez comme en bouche, appuyée par la café et le caramel. Presque aucune effervescence, à vrai dire quasiment "flat" ;-(
