COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring to you a big black dirty deep delicious crazy craving creepy imperial stout created on the love to extreme beers and stupid ideas. We bring to you a fairytale. A love story between two scandinavian breweries whos destiny was simply just meant to be. We bring to you Brewmance. An Imperial Stout, that has been brewed with honey from the Swedish female urban honey collective called BeeUrban. The Bee hives here are placed on different rooftops in Stockholm and the honey is extreme in every way. After fermentation the beer has matured 3 months in Bourbon Barrels. Cheers!

Bottle. Aroma is chocolate, booze, oak, and faint herbal hops. Appearance is black with a thin tan head. Good lacing. Taste is roasted barley, burnt toast, honey, oak, and booze. Full body with low carbonation. Overall rich, complex, and very good. A little warm so some ageing might be good.

Bottle shared by Phatdog1. Snifter shows a thin tan head and extremely oily coating when swirled around the snifter. It smells really nice. Light bourbon, oak, chocolate and a large amount of sweetness from the honey. The flavor falls a bit short for me. The oily film that can been seen as you swirl the stout around the snifter also leaves a thick coating across your tongue and kind of makes the stout a cloying. The sweetness almost covers the bourbon, vanilla and chocolate flavors that people enjoy in a BBA stout. In no way is this a poor offering, I just think the honey was overdone causing the texture and flavor to be slightly off. I have no clue what more age could do to this and will not find out on my own.

Bouteille 37.5cl de HopDuvel, BB 11/12/2022. De couleur brune foncée tirant sur le noir, une mousse moka légèrement crémeuse donnant un filament huileux doré sur le verre. Arôme est principalement axé sur un malt chocolaté qui est assez dominant accompagné par un côté crystal presque sucré et des pointes de grillé. Le tout offrant des effluves de grains presque poussiéreuses. L’ajout du miel se veut discret et je n’ai, personnellement pas pu le trouver. Ce dernier était peut-être noyé dans la masse de malts. Au niveau BA, je ne note pas vraiment un impact significatif de Bourbon, dommage. Palais est malté chocolaté, grillé et caramel mis en avant. Le tout est ponctué d’une amertume modérée venant du houblonnage qui offre qcq notes fleuri-citronnée très subtil. Le Bourbon est minimaliste avec un profil qui ne rivalise pas avec ses congénères américains. Je retrouve très peu de ce côté vanillé quasi doux de Bourbon, mais note au contraire une bière épaisse réchauffée par les 11% qui fini par cacher pas mal du caractère de cette dernière. Ce profil basique se note d’ailleurs par des pointes de malt pâle et caramel typiquement européen. Ici aussi, le miel annoncé reste timide et je peine à y trouver ce côté organique - cloying. Une bière solide de par sa composition mais horriblement banale et un profil maintes fois revisité. Compte tenu de ce qui est annoncé sur l’étiquette ainsi que du prix de la bière, on était en droit d’attendre qcq chose de plus recherché.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and honey. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, honey, and some alcohol. Medium body, wish it were a bit heavier. Very nice, overall.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Obsidian pour with a tightly packed mocha head. Assertive nose of cocoa, wood, caramel, and alcohol. Flavor shows dark chocolate, brownie batter, brown sugar, vanilla and oak. Not a huge bourbon presence and nowhere near the honey presence found in Black Tie. Still a healthy, tasty brew...liked it but not in love! Definitely not a "Brewmance".

CloakedDagger (736) - - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours pitch black with a beige head. Sweet roasty nose with evident alcohol. Rich body, hardly any carbonation, sweet roastiness, slightly charred. Quite a boozy whisky feel but I don’t really pick up any Bourbon character. 271213

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is sweet malt with chocolate and roast behind it, then more sweetness that lends to booze. Taste has that typical bba stout, vanilla, wood, chocolate, nice sweetness from the honey, but also a tad of funk. Very nice, thick and viscous.

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller and Friends. Pours a rich brown black with a tan head. Sweet treacly coffee aroma. Full body, medium carbonation. Coffee, bitter choc, treacle and a big boozy hit. The booze is a bit up front, but very tasty nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
