UPDATED: NOV 30, 2022 Appearance: Pours opaque dark brown to black, almost no head, no lacing.
Aroma: Huge soy sauce and preserved plum, with toasted malt, cassis, clove, cinnamon, tobacco, dark chocolate, caramel and toast wood, leaves a seductive grilled meat in the empty glass.
气味：海量的酱油和话梅，伴随着烘烤麦芽、黑醋栗、丁香、肉桂、烟草、黑巧克力、焦糖和炙木 Soy sauce, sweet and pungent spices, chocolate and dried fruits with solid bourbon oak. Super heavy sweetness with equally salty and oaky to counterbalance that. Perfect alcohol hide. Lingering salty savory finish with cocoa, bourbon oak and spices.
味道：酱油、甜香料和辛香料、巧克力与干果，伴随着坚实的波本桶味。甜度超重，但同样有超 Full bodied, almost flat carbonated. Thick, oily and smooth.
The beer came as a complete surprise to me. It's more of an old bourbon-barrel aged Imperial Stout, or even Barleywine and Shaoxingwine, instead of a young Pastry Stout... With almost insanely salty, soy sauce-y and plumy, it reminds me of Goose Island Proprietor's Bourbon County Brand Stout 2014. No trace of common vanilla adjuncts (but it seems that vanilla beans can also have prune-like smell?), neither do marshmallow. Exactly match my palate, however I was expecting something totally different from this bottle. Hard to rate such...
这款酒完全出乎我的意料。它很像一款老年份的过桶帝国世涛，甚至大麦或者绍兴酒，就是不像 BCBS 2014。没有别的酒里常见的那种香草增味（但据说香草荚本身是带有西梅干味的？），也没有棉花糖。别说还 2022-11-30 zebra (4826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2022
