Aged on bourbon barrels.

Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2012 är en imperial stout – det vill säga ett opastöriserat, överjäst och mycket mörkt öl av gammaldags brittisk typ – som lagrats på bourbonfat. Den präglas av stor kryddighet där smak och doft av vanilj, torkad frukt, kaffe och kakao balanseras av en lätt bränd sötma och humlens aromer. Tydliga drag av ek och bourbon ackompanjerar de övriga smakerna till fulländning.

Klassifikation: Fatlagrad imperial stout

Användning: Slottskällans Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2012 är en öl som långsamt kan avnjutas i små klunkar i till exempel ett konjaksglas, antingen som den är eller eller tillsammans med ostar, nötter eller blandade, inte allt för starka salamisorter. Ett annat lysande komplement till den här ölen är choklad eller en god vanlijglass.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: pilner-, choklad- och svartmalt samt ljus karamellmalt.
Tre sorters humle: Northen brewer, Fuggle och East kent golding.

Alkoholhalt: 11 %

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2013
33cl bouteille couresty of and shared with Gnoff, BB 140912. 2012 vintage. Brune foncée, col épais café au lait, huileux doré sur les rebords du verre. Arôme est léger et boisé avec une once de vanille, bourbon subtile, caramel pointe de chocolat. Palais présente ce côté boisé-chêne, bourbon se distinct plus ici, note de bois, fruits noirs, malt caramel avec un niveau alcool clairement bien présent voire un peu trop. Fini garde une légère note sucrée résiduelle. Amertume s’immisce péniblement en fin de bouche.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2013
Draft. Dark to black colored beer with a lasting small light brownish head. The color of the head is surprisingly light compared to the color of the beer indicating not only burned malts were used for coloring. Aroma of dark fruit and alcohol. Sweetish alcohol flavors, some dark fruits and notes of coffee and chocolate. Bitterish alcohol warming aftertaste.

Cunningham (6237) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2013

Appearance: Black color with a creamy beige head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Mild oak, coffee and chocolate.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a mild bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, mild oak and vanilla. Some alcohol coming up.
Overall impression: Tasty and easy drinkable impy. But something is missing from an imperial stout at 11% abv. Lacs some punch and power.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with SaintMatty

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @ Pikkulintu. Pours pretty black with small brown white head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, slight burbon whiskey. Abit too much of burnt taste. Good spices and boozy. More straightforward "pärähtää" in your face. Not so smooth but great taste. Also notes of licorice.

330ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Black beige head. Nice aroma, a decent roast, touch of vanilla. Soft palate, pleasant vanilla. Palate is a bit boozy, but only a bit. Finish roasty, Touch mashy. Decent, buut a bit disappointing. maybe too alcoholic, maybe no interesting details. but not bad.

Det här är ju inte bra hur man än försöker. Sträv. Klen kropp. Bismaker. Bourbonfat känner man inte ett smack av.

RexTalionis (3306) - FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Some wooden notes and light spicy vanilla in aroma. Some bourbon in taste, a bit harsh it feels with some boozyness that is detected. More straightforward that keeps you going, no hesitating here. Boozy vanilla bourbon in aftertaste. Some spicyness as well.
