750ml bottle (2013 or 14, not sure when but I think it’s pretty old) in a stem glass. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee and chocolate malts, some bourbon and oak and light vanilla, hints of dark fruits, and light dough and bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Smoother texture. A unique beer with a lot of bourbon.

slowrunner77 (6165) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"Lots of whiskey on the nose, with some wood and sweet malts coming through as well. A little hot, but not to a fault. Medium bodied (especially for such a strong brew) with ample carbonation. Flavor is whiskey dominant as well, vanilla, oak, semi-sweet, quite a bit warming. Definitely a solid sipper. Thank you Hannah."

CloakedDagger (974) - - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a murky opaque dark brown with a beige head. Very spicy aroma, loads of vanilla and licorice allsorts - and booze. Rich body, heavy caramel and chocolate with a distinct sweet impact of the whiskey barrels. Very little Brown Ale here, if there ever was any roastiness it’s definitely gone now. But a very delicious border Barley Wine. A little too boozy throughout though. 040914

Flaska blindprovas. Barleywine-drag och varma alkoholer. Nyans av bourbon. Bra balans. (vad är imperial brown?)
