4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle@home. Pours clear pitch black with a small dissapering brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted, with prunes and dried fruits. Also some notes of liquorice and coffee. Taste of roasted malt, dark, really dark chocolate, but also quite prominent alcoholic. Ends with hints from the bourbon barrel and liquorice. Quite dry in the mouthfeel, reminds me of dryhopping. Body is amazingly with a thick oily viscosity. Medium carbonation, and indeed a nice brew.

Bloody fantastic. A bourbon barrel aged imperial stout to die for. If you see it you’ll be doing a disservice if you don’t get it.

From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with a thin brown head that leaves thin spotty lace. The nose is dark and roasted with tons of coffee, burnt molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla oak, and a bit of an ashy aroma. The flavor is a bit more molasses and milk chocolate, less burnt than I expected, with the same dark chocolate and coffee, with the light ashy note on the back of the palate. The body is full with light carbonation and a long bourbon coffee and lightly ashy finish.

Bottle. Pours pitch black, with very little head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, with quite straight forward cocoa and tobacco, as well as some sweet notes of barrel. Creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts, with oaken barrels, cocoa, leather and kandi, as well as lots of sweet bourbon notes. Lingering notes of burned malts and sweet, herbal cocoa in the finish.

Rating #1045, flaske fra Kihoskh
Helt sort øl uden skum, dog brunrødt skær i kanten. Duft af ristet malt, kaffe, røg og alkohol. Smagen er ren kaffegrums, salt, saltlakrids og en del alkohol afslutningsvis. Eftersmag af alkohol, kaffe og røg i flere minutter. Tyk og cremet, virkelig fænomenal.

The beer was bought for a New year’s Eve.
It’s very light stout with a sensible aroma of wine or wiskey and a sweet and sour ending. Very much appreciated!

Looks really oil-like. Coffee and chocalate aroma. Very full body reach malty taste with awesome notes of cofffee, chocolate, crème brûlée and elegan vanile. Long intensive aftertaste of expensive chocolate and cofffee with good bourbon. Almost perfect imperial stout.

Bottle. Just couldn’t wait longer to pop this, hah. Pours pitch black with a thick, dark brown delicious head. Damn, this beer always look so good. Aroma is mindblowingly good. Bourbon, coffee beans, licorice, cocoa powder, vanilla, some coconut-like sweeter notes, some tobacco, fudge, dry woody notes. Now to the taste. Oh, damn! Lots of sweeter light notes like vanilla and light caramel but behind that lies strong heavy notes like licorice, tobacco, grounded coffee beans and cocoa. Perfect balance.
