"2006 - a little past it’s prime, so the hops didn’t really add to it at all, but damn, the roasted malts and chocolate, anise, etc in this beer aged in bourbon barrels? A thing of beauty. Would really like to try this a year or two old instead of 6.
2014 as Fyodor’s Classic 500 ml bottle...soft luxurious palate aroma and flavor, just like guradians slumber. AWESOME! "

500ml bottle (Fyodors Classic - batch 3) in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and oak and vanilla, chocolate and hints of coffee, some light sweetness, and some hints of dark fruits. Flavor the same with an incredible blend of the base beer and bourbon. Thick texture. A really good beer; glad I finally got to try it.

Batch 3 bottle shared at Monkey Paw. Pitch black pour with thin mocha head. Nose is a roasted, malty, barrel bomb with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste follows the nose but is a little too boozy for now. Plan to try another bottle in my cellar in about a year. Really well done though.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: wonderful creamy bourbon with vanilla and cigar
Appearance : black with reddish brown head
Taste: Sweet salted caramel maltiness and incredibly smooth. Finish has a pleasant burst of bourbon and vanilla goodness
Overall: An elite version of a bourbon barrel imperial stout with the bourbon being the clear hero here but not in overpowering high alcohol kind of way.

Draught at Churchkey. Aroma and taste of Jack Daniels, enough to dilute the characteristics of the stout
