UPDATED: NOV 26, 2021 Aroma of booze soaked wooden barrel. Flavour has sweet elements chocolate and whisky. Bitter cacao and burnt malts. Intense. Good but perhaps slightly too harsh and boozy. scotchzombie (815) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2021

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2021 2017 vintage. Don’t even know anymore where I picked this up, it’s been in the cellar for years, but possibly from wombat23. Virtually black with a creamy, beige head. Aroma of fudge, oak, cherries and lots of bourbon. Taste is moderate sweet with an intense, boozy finish, and lingering vanilla. Full bodied, chewy, moderate to mild carbonation. Definitely a slow sipper. Good, but too heavy on the barrel.

气味：无花果、葡萄干、烘烤麦芽、黑巧克力、咖啡、香草、肉桂、甘草、焦糖和酱油，伴有轻 Toasted malts, dark chocolate and dried spices with salty savory characters. Mellow sweetness balanced with bitterness. Lingering savory spicy finish with dark chocolate and bourbon.
味道：呈现烘烤麦芽、黑巧克力和干香料味，伴随着咸鲜风味。柔和的甜度被苦度平衡。酒精 Full bodied, moderate carbonated. Oily texture and smooth.
There is no certainty that whether I prefer this or Fremont Dark Star. In a word, this is quite salty, spicy and toasty, yet well balanced. Good alcohol hiding though 13.6% isn't among the highest abv of Imperial Stout.
很难说我更喜欢这款还是佛里蒙黑星。简而言之这款酒有很重的咸味、香料和烘烤感，但还是做的 arsol (2243) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2021
