Even better than I expected. A perfect bourbon, cognac, cherry imperial stout. Perfect level of carbonation that keeps it from tasting too sweet. Best to drink it in small sips that you let play on your tongue. Great beer.

SlovakSniper (3229) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
En fût au Saint-Bock. Vintage 2013. Liquide brun sans véritable tête. Chocolat, brandy, bourbon, vanille, épices, bois et raisins flottent dans l’atmosphère. En bouche, un alcool riche et fort, malté à souhait et liquoreux. Une sensation en bouche qui ne va pas avec le reste. Un corps moyen-mince avec un pétillement très vif et une texture qui se cherche. Une finale chaude comme un mélange d’eaux-de-vie brunes et noires. Beau nez mais saveurs perdues. Conditionnement douteux mais finale assez intéressante. Drôle d’assemblage.

Vignale (2106) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Otroligt koncentrerad doft och smak och mycket komplex. Tjock vätska. Stora dofter och smaker av torkad frukt, fikon, dadlar, russin, marsipan och rom, madeira, bourbon, cognac. Tjock och kladdig i munnen, söt men balanserad. Riktigt riktigt gott. Perfekt till dessert eller ost.

A hint of red Sharp fruit, oak, vanilla, roasted malts,cred fruit, chocolate, caramel, port, molasses, very smooth and awesome Bourbon taste! Boy what an amazing sipper beer!! I loved this one so much!!

Pitch black and almost no head. Not very much to look at, but then you start tasting and smelling. Whoa! It just keeps on going. Moderate malts with coffee, roasted malts, milk chocolate, nuts, cookie, light hops with citrus fruits and there's also some yeast, vanilla, a clear taste of oak, licorice, bourbon and brandy, caramel, brown sugar, grape, raisin and prune, a hint of smoke and peat, cola, spices, tawny port. The list seems endless. Flavor is complex and subtle and switches from light acodic to light acidic and light bitter, followed by light acidic, light bitter and sweet, then sweet and bitter and warming alcohol and only sweet and warming alcohol and finishing in bitter and alcohol. Body is full with syrupy texture and quite low carbonation. What a beer! Incredible. Together with Westvleteren my number one so far.

HopRedHead (384) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with an oily slick and no head. Big aroma of rum and raisins, molasses and dark fruits. Very sweet. Taste has lots of cherries, fig and bubblegum. Low carb makes this really syrupy. Bit too sweet for me but still enjoyable.

Vells (715) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 13, 2014
Definitely huge brew, but kinda dint worked out for me.. Moderate roasted malts, licorice, dried fruits, bourbon, choco, wood, vanilla. Its quite complex, but in same time too monolith, even boring. Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Nice sipping beer, but I prefer each of two brews in this one separate.
