Douberd (5252) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
(Cycle Rare DOS) Bottle 650ml at home, served into a snifter. A thick pour gives a totally black coloured beer, with a small dark brown head on top, with good retention. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts. Tastes also of whiskey, light iodine, lots of chocolate and vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts, light coal, alcohol. Full body, soft carbonation. Great.

On tap at Pegs. Originally reviewed 7/24/2011. Jet black body with an ample chocolate head. It dies down a little quickly to a brown ring around the top. Wisps of lace on the surface and as I swirl it around, staining the inside of the glass. Nice. Smells of bourbon, oh my. A second whiff reveals some coconut and strong dark chocolate. More bourbon ensues. Wow. Tastes much like the aroma, only richer. Bourbon with coconut and chocolate at first. A nice, caramel midrange flavor (with bourbon) followed by a rich, dark chocolate creaminess (with bourbon) and a coffee bitterness in the finish (with some bourbon). Loads of bourbon, but somehow it never overwhelms the other flavors. Great body. Thick and chewy, but it isnt sweet. Hardly any alcohol burn. Perfect for a stout of this caliber. Nearly perfect in every way. One of the best bourbon stouts Ive ever had. Im stunned. I was prepared to drink a beer that had been overhyped, but it is delicious.

Pitch black, little brown head. Aroma is really bourbon forward, some slight peatness, loads of cocoa and vanilla. A bit thin mouthfeel. Barrel is almost overpowering. Very nice though
