A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2020 (Bottled early 2019, so aged almost another year.) Black pour with thick, chocolate brown head. Light lacing. Odor of roasted cocoa powder and rich chocolate. Taste of more roasty cocoa into oaky vanilla and chocolate with a bourbon finish. The barrel is strong, but not overpowering. Very good.

Highhopes (228) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 8, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2020 De barril en Beerhouse. Color negro con densa espuma color beige. Aromas a café, regaliz, algo de madera y malta. En boca es intensa, cafetosa, con un potente gusto a regaliz que le da un toque chispeante. Retrogusto intenso con algo de ardor alcohólico y amargor malteado con mucho regaliz. No es nada dulzona. Muy, muy rica.

DraftDodger (3612) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2020 Copenhagen 26/12 2018. 35,5 cl bottle from Voldby Købmandsgård Webshop. This is the 2016 release with an ABV of 11,9. The Classic label with the tagline “Is good for everything a flavoured stout ought to be good for”. Pours opaque dark brown with small beige head. Settles as thin, transparent layer of foam unable to cover the surface of the beer. Aroma is very intensive, sweet with a nice boozy backbone. Sweet chocolate and caramel. Like coming into a candystore offer9ng Classic chocolates. Shoe cream, vanilla, coffee. Powerful alcohol lurking in the background. Low carbonation. Thick, oily and creamy texture. Have to work a bit to get it out of the glass. Flavor is heavy sweet. Followed by more moderate bitterness. Aftertaste is long and sweet with a spicy undercurrent. Lingers for a long sweet while. This is a very nice, very sweet and very strong Imperial Stout. A metal in it-selskab - but I would not dare to drink it for Breakfast.

drewsbrewsmke (52) - - JAN 29, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2020 (2019 KBS) Pours pitch black and with a tan head. Noticeably smells of boozy and lovely bourbon with some vanilla and coffee beans. First tastes that come through are pleasant coffee and then a nice wave of bourbon comes through before finishing with semi-sweet chocolate. The ending hop presence is a nice addition and gives it some dry bitterness (in a good way). Very smooth given the ABV. Very well done beer that sets the bar high for barrel-aged stouts.

BarrelMonger107 (156) - GREECE - JAN 17, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2020 I waiting so long time to find and after drink this beer in my country and i was so exciting to try it.. But all my excitement was nothing when i finally drink this beer.. Anyway like i said i was pretty sure for how good can be this legendary beer and when i open it the aroma bursting my nose in the first secs. So much coffe inside and so much power. The beer is really lively.. And when i get the first draught, one massive mouthfeel fill my mouth and my stomach.. This beer is a real dynamite.. It has the most coffe flavor i have get from any other beer out there and i love that. The beer is so rich and complex and give you one insane mouthfeel and go down in your stomach so smouth.. Your mouth is so alive when you drink this beer.. You can get any detail from the flavors in your mouth.. Chocolate, caramel and one massive amount of rich coffe there.. Also the carboration is moderate and in the right levels. Overall one of the best and rich beers i have drink in my life. And also the most coffe beer too.. Despite 'Stout - imperial' beers are so expensive, this one deserve every penny from my wallet..

sjorsvdg (830) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2020 Heerlijke imperial stout. Mooi dik, viskeus mondgevoel. Het aroma is sterkedrankerig, en rijk aan donkere tonen. Het bier heeft een uitstekende smaakbalans tussen koffie, pure chocolade, hout, karamel, bourbon en pruimedant.
