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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2020 Fad. En af mine hvaler. Kulsort øl med et flot skumhoved. Duften er bourbon, vanille og chokolade. Smagen er ekstrem balanceret og fantastisk. Super øl.

AleMaestro53 (20) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2020 Tall boy can from Total Wine in Clear Lake. Everything an imperial stout should be. However, a bit overrated.... Would definitely get again

Inoven (2192) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2020 Fles gedeeld door Benzai. Zwart stroperig bier met weinig schuim dat snel weg trekt. Aroma van Bourbon, koffie en karamel. Het bier heeft de smaak van koffie en Bourbon en is kleverig in de mond. Nasmaak met pit van de alcohol.

The_Osprey (10553) - WALES - MAY 23, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2020 Alesmith Barrel Aged Speedway Stout (BBA), 13%, 11 fl oz bottle, 2019 ed. This beer essentially cost me £35 which is pretty outrageous, let's be honest. In saying that, it is a great beer that lives up to the hype for me. Meaty vanilla oak and chocolate aroma with peanut brittle and coffee cake. Has a touch too much of that BBA meatiness for me but it's nice. Body is rounded and oily. Taste is where this takes off. Not too sweet, which is important for my tastes. Coffee, charred wood, enduring bitterness with a touch of alcohol spice. Spicy and woody yet with chocolate and sweetened coffee. Exceptional taste and body. Yep this is worthy of being differentiated from other imperial stouts but of course it's never going to be 4x better as the price would suggest. I'm not disappointed with the purchase but it's certainly a one-off. (8-4-10-5-17=4.4)

imperial_suchy (795) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAR 17, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2020 Piwo czarne jak smoła z brazową, szybko redukującą się pianą do obrączki przylegającej do ścianek szkła. W aromacie kawa, ciastko czekoladowe, kokos, mokre drewno, likier czekoladowy, praliny, stosunkowo mało wanilii (ale też ją czuć). Po chwili wychodzi również wyraźna orzechowość. W smaku ta orzechowość jest również wyraźna. Poza tym czuć kawę, czekoladę, praliny, migdały, odrobinę mokrego drewna, kokos, wanilię. Smakuje jak ciastko czekoladowe podlane bourbonem i popite espresso. Piwo jest raczej słodkie, ale nie do przesady. Sporo ciała, w smaku alkohol w postaci rozgrzewania, wysycenie mogłoby być niższe. Trochę obawiałem się, że to piwo będzie przereklamowane, ale zaskoczyłem się pozytywnie. Gdyby nie to wysycenie, to byłoby idealnie.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2020 Tap at Kultainen Apina. Abbey 13%. Pours black with beige head. Aroma and taste have roasted malts, bourbon barrel, coffee, chocolate, dried fruits. licorice. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, roasted finish with warming alcohol. Just excellent.

heman (2846) - TYCHY, POLAND - MAR 8, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2020 Barwa smoliście czarna, piana brązowa, pojawia się na krótko i szybko zanika. Aromat intensywny i złożony. Gorzka czekolada (taka w chuj % kakao), suszone ooce, nuty porto, kawa (słodzone mocne espresso) i bardzo wyraźna beczka - wanilia, marcepan. W smaku pełne, oleiste. Słodycz czekolady, melasy. Gorzka czekolada, nuty palone, popioowe, czerwone owoce, porto, wanilia. Finisz lekko alkoholowy, rozgrzewający.
