This is what you get when you take a Russian Imperial Stout and mix it with an Imperial IPA, then force-feed it sugar until it can’t take any more. Then you put it into 2 different oak barrels that previously contained Bourbon. This is not beer or wine. It’s not spirit either. It’s inspired from America, born in Belgium and headed to outer space. It’s Mohawk Double Rocket , a Belgo-American Barrel Aged Barley Wine Style Ale.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is floral, fruity, some slight alcohol and actually not all too balanced. Flavour is alcohol, sweet alcohol, some ripe fruits, mild liquorice and mild floral notes. At 17.2 % it’s quite blasting, but still somewhat drinkable.

Bottled, at NK ölbar, Stockholm. Hazy dark brown, minimal head. Boozy bourbon aroma. Sweet with really full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Slight salty chocolate, notes of espresso, plenty of bourbon. Heated finish. Potent, yet with balance. One of the better super strength beers I had lately.

Dark brown color with generous creamy head. The aroma is mild but elegant, with some malt, vanilla, oak, raisins, alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, immediately warming because of the alcohol content, but not boozy; excellent malt flavor, very sweet but not cloying, with a good share of dark and of dry fruits; the bitterness is also very high, with plenty of hop resins and some bitter oranges. The final is hot, but still full of flavors.
Extreme, but dynamic and very pleasing.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle shared at Cafe Abseits during the Bamberg Jolly - January 2014. Cheers! Pours lightly hazy golden brown with a foamy, off-white head. Decadent and ballsy, but very good. Lots of heavy bread, fruitcake, caramel. Full bodied with chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with gooey fruits, toffee. Good stuff in small doses.
