English: A very smooth version of Xbeeriment Black Force One with complex notes of maple syrup and oranges from the Bourbon blending in with the roastiness and hoppiness of the imperial stout. An extremely complex beer. Only 375 bottles made.

Bottle @ RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting at Dean Swift. Black beer with lasting dark beige head. Not too heavy on the bourbon but still dominates the beeer, Itís an impy stout with bourbon. Too hot, too all over the place.

Bottle, shared by Meilby. Some reddish notes, else itís a dark brown beer topped by a dense, light tan head. Some alcohol on the nose, with roasted malts, a sort of pleasant boozy touch, some coffee, dark chocolate and some vanilla. A touch of vanilla and booze on the palate, full-bodied and warming, with roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate and alcohol. Lasting finish with roasted malts, some booze and a nice bitterness. Certainly a really nice one, would certainly like to repeat this one. 120224

Kestral (506) - Ňrnes, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. No idea where this came from anymore. Anyways, a black pour, zero highlights, and a finger of beige head. Boozy aroma with tons of dry yet sweet dark chocolate, some odd earthy notes I canít pin down. A little vanilla, a little bit of dark fruits. Almost a little peppery. Very, very full flavoured, jesus this is a flavour bomb. Loads of chocolate, coffee, definitely a bit boozy, with a spiced, earthy tinge to it. Burnt malts, alcohol in the finish. Fairly well balanced, but perhaps a little bit on the sweet side. Full bodied, and quite generously carbonatied. This is a good one for sure, but it falls a little short of the big hitters in terms of complexity. Itís not exactly one dimensional, but itís not one of those beers you can just smell for hours and still pick out new things in.
