UPDATED: MAY 11, 2023 Poured from the bottle (shared post-Alus Celle bottle share event). Near black with small off white head. Bourbon forward, gentle roast and chocolate. Quite nice. sinfull (3243) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2023
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2023 Black color. Medium-sized, beige head. Coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and roasted malt in the aroma. Perfectly balanced taste with warming finish. Guaro (313) - Ello, ITALY - FEB 25, 2023
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2023 Nera con cremosa schiuma marrone.
Profumo di caffè, cioccolato, vaniglia, melassa, quercia e bourbon.
Beviamo. Caffè e note tostate, cioccolato fondente, toffee e leggera vaniglia, finale secco con robusta amaricatura. Bourbon presente ma non avvolgente in modo troppo elegante. Abv generoso ma non ingombrante. Corpo medio e bassa carbonazione. kapusil (2372) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2023
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2023 0.355l bottle, vintage 2022 many thanks to Lore. Pitch black body with a lacing brown head. Super bold dark chocolate notes in the aroma with strong coffee notes, slight coconut, bourbon, caramel, vanilla and some nutmeg. The alcohol can be felt but quite mellow. The taste is what the aroma suggests. Bold chocolate notes, smooth bourbon, vanilla, coffee, coconut, nutmeg, cocoa and some caramel. Thick bodied with a silky texture. Amazing beer, literally perfect for me. olberic (1047) - Trying to read Alengrins reviews, - JAN 1, 2023

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2022 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA (2022 bottle listed at 13.3% ABV). Pour is black with a cinnamon brown head. Amazing aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and booze. Taste is incredible with espresso, oak, coconut, vanilla, and dark chocolate upfront and subtle notes of dark fruit underneath. Finish is quite warm but not off-putting. A great barrel-aged imperial stout!! colui72 (4374) - Yuen Long, HONG KONG - NOV 15, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2022 2022 edition (13.3%)
AleSmith's signature Speedway Stout aged in Bourbon barrels.
Aroma is wonderful giveaway of chocolate, espresso coffee and bourbon (with its vanillin woody tail). Roasty, nutty and promises booze.
Obsidian black, small and creamy beige head, with a high retention along the glass and the expected legs.
Moderately bitter, sweet and spicy. With dark chocolate, espresso, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, strong bourbon, spicy wood, roasted barley.. Perfect balance, what I need now it's a fireplace, to enjoy its massive lingering flavours.
Full body, creamy, low carbonation, boozy as it should be. Lovely velvety mouthfeel.
An absolute banger, this enhances the already perfect classic version. Lush!
