COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our award winning Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The result blew us away. The dark chocolate malt yields a milk chocolate flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla flavor from the barrel. The bourbon aroma adds the finishing touch.
2013 vintage: 10.9% abv, 58 IBU

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. 3.75 A: Black color. One finger of frothy/creamy light brown head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Big leather from the bourbon stands out the most. Roastiness, dark chocolate, a touch of char, and molasses. Melon, oak, and vanilla from the barrel. 3.75 T: Taste mirrors the nose closely. Roast, dark chocolate, molasses. Again there’s lots of leather. Oak and vanilla are stronger in the taste. Touch of ashy char to round things out. 3.75 M: Lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth. 3.75 D: Good well rounded beer. ★ 625 characters DavoleBomb, May 10, 2014
