COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special Markings: Gold foil neck and white numbering above rear label. Some bottles have paper labels, some do not.

We’ve matured our Russian Imperial Stout in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to create the perfect blend of flavors. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon add another level of complexity to this beer’s already massive flavor profile of chocolate, Ryan Bros. Coffee, and roasted barley. Designed to be enjoyed now or aged in the bottle for years to come, this special release is truly a unique beer that is smooth as it is rare.

Enhances everything you like about speedway stout but doesn't improve on it's weak points. Good rich bourbon barrel taste and aroma but the palate is quite thin. Good, but I was expecting world class.

Bourbon like, with strong coffee, chocolate and vanilla notes, just a pure dessert in your mouth.

Saeglopur (3230) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 16, 2018
Score: 8 / 4 / 9 / 4 / 17

Draught at MBCC 2018, green session.
Pitch black body, with a medium, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of bourbon, wood, tobacco, cocoa powder, liquorice, dark chocolate, some soy sauce.
Tastes similar, very creamy, with more chocolate.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes medium boozy, moderate sweet, a bit roasty, with cocoa powder, chocolate, tobacco, wood, bourbon, some liquorice.

Very tasty! Quite smooth for the strength, with very well integrated bourbon barrel and a creamy character throughout. Alcohol is noticeable, but well moderated. Really lovely stuff, while I have to say, after trying a couple of variants now, the straight, regular Speedway Stout clearly remains my favourite one.
