Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Nice bourbon and roasted malt on the nose. Big bourbon on the tongue along with sweet malt. Pairs nicely together. Hides the booze well. Nice finish. Excellent imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

T.J. Thanks for the share of this 375 ml bottle with no bottling date. The color is a opaque black, thin lasting head. Aroma is okay bourbon, chocolate, and earthy hints.

Flavor is really damn nice. The bourbon is SO nicely integrated into the rich malty backbone. Body is full and the bourbon is smooth with a very minor alcohol burn after the sip. Holy hell, why did I wait this long to try this?? This is amazing. Nobody knows how long this sat around but no matter, totally pimping.

375 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is a 2014 A vintage. The pour is a lighter black with a nice light khaki colored ring of head that lingers nicely with a little bit of light lace. The aroma is pretty heavy on the bourbon aspect. There is a lot of boozy heat and a pretty strong char. There is a bit of chocolate and a strong alcohol burn. It's pretty surprising. I like the complexity of it. It's pretty great. The flavors are pretty interesting as well. It's got a nice chocolate and bourbon. The boozy heat is probably one of the only complaints I can offer up. There is a nice roasty maltiness that brings it all together. The mouth feel is thick and heavy with a nice soft carbonation to go with a great roasty barrel finish. This one is interesting but there is a ton of barrel character here. It's nice.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 Bottle shared with koleminer20. 2014 vintage. Aroma is roasted malt, barrel, booze, smells like a BB Imperial Stout, really good stuff. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, booze, woody, sweet but bitter, real good. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, woody booze aftertaste. Overall, this one is quite good.

Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2016
dark brown colour, surprisingly large brown head; aroma of whisky, vanilla and herbal notes, some coffee, hints of smoke, minimal dried fruits and alcohol; taste is the same...to be honest, similarly to Old viscosity, it is definitely not my style - nevertheless, it is probably a perfect and amazing beer, so this must be my fault.
