Vintage 2011: What you have here is quite rare and special. We take 1-year old Imperial Stout, age it in Jack Daniels Barrels for 6 months, then carefully blend it at a very rich ratio of 1:2 with this year’s Imperial Stout. The results are powerful. Huge bourbon character and oaky notes come through in waves, supported by the big roasty malt backbone of the base stout. This beer can be enjoyed now or cellared for many years to come. Skål!

Bottle as Vejle Bryghus Imperial Stout Bourbon. Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice and coffee. Taste is extremely sour and body is totally flat. Obviously this beer has been damaged or stored incorrectly, so the rating is misleading. I’ll re-rate when I get a new bottle.

As Jydske Bryghuse Bourbon Stout at ØK 13, thanks to fonefan for sharing. Dark, almost black coloured body. Decent tan-coloured head. Vanilla oak nose with dark malts. Comprehensive flavour of coffee, oak and liquorice. Bittersweet finish. Tingling alcohol where the semi-dry Jack Daniels taste is present. Pleasing as a sipper (Copenhagen, 25.05.2013).

650. Pours jet black with a loose whitish head. Big sharp apricot and vanilla nose. The JD is pretty sharp with this one; a subtler bourbon would push this beer into very nice territory. Creamy thick body with some light chalkiness and soft carb. Dark roast, chocolate, vanilla, some oak and a bit of apricot on the mid palate, leading to a nice chocolate and vanilla finish. Good stout.

23. http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/vejle-bryghus-imp tap at ØlFestival 2012. It pours a tan head over an almost black body. Roasted malts, some vanilla, hints of licorice and an alcoholic, boozy touch in the aroma. The flavor is maybe a bit boozy, with pleasant sweetness, some hoppy bitterness and a touch of vanilla. Warming, full-bodied and soft on the palate, with roasted malts in the end. Overall, too boozy and Jack Daniel-ish, but it’s a decent beer anyway. 120510

Sampled on tap at PIB, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla--very dominating--not much else detectable. Flavour is a HUGE bourbon bomb, dominating everything, with vanilla, bourbon and lots of booze. Ridiculously boozy and barrel-dominating. I prefer the base beer, as the barrels make this even messier.
