COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes - OK, rather often, actually - I find myself asking, "How far can we take it?" Keeping in mind that flavour should be the main objective at all time, the conception of Bumaye was one of those moments. To make it we started out with the baddest imperial stout we have ever brewed, and then added loads of tasty sugars to the fermenter foe extra flavour. To smooth out the roughness, we allowed the beer to mellow in Pinot Noir barrels for more than a year.

An experimental 17% Imperial stout released for Beervana 2012.

rondphoto (4261) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 10, 2014
bottle @ Winos Depot / Lima OH --- Opaque black color, thin brown rim head, no lace. Very still. Nice aroma of malt and wine. Taste is malt, dried dark fruit, and wine that moves through the palate in a big way before finishing with only the briefest infusion of hops. A big brew, yes, but that doesnt automatically qualify it for a big score. This one seems lifeless and without any traditional edge. There is alcohol warmth, of course (cmon, its 16%abv!), but it doesnt appeal as a drink to ever seek again.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Vinous chocolate malt and hay aroma. Black with small head. Dry earthy red wine dominates flavor - very light chocolate malt and hay flavors in the background. Nice but wine flavor overwhelms everything else.

Patrickctenchi (6359) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle: Black, oil, no head....just the most thin of tan ring.... Cola, smoke, chocolate/raisin aroma. Even a bit of sting/heat from the boozy notes in the nose. Vinous, burned chocolate malt, and alcohol flavor. Boozy, but smooth.... Sticky sweet with a heavy alcohol/ashy bitter finish. To be sipped......gently....make no mistake, this is a BIG beer.

Palme (4396) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
0.33l bottle brought home from 2d2dspuma. Looks a bit like pouring oily here. Its really thick and dark, not even a hint of a head on this and the beer itself is really deep dark ruby brown in color. Lovely lovely nose! Its really rum infused. Wood, vanilla, salty rope with soy sauce, coconut and dark dark bitter chocolate. Mmmhh.. What a lovely aroma indeed! This is one of those flavor bombs! Oh, my.. Its almost a little like liquefied deep dark chocolate that has been added whisky, wood, port wine, burnt sugar and charcoal. It has a really good thick chewy mouthfeel and its only softly softly prickling on the carbonation bubbles. Not to far off flat really. Having problems describing all the different flavors here, there are so many and its so concentrated! In the finish its tailing off lots of salty licorice, tannins and charred wood. A true sipper in every way! 14.09.2014

Zakoon (488) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014
Pours black with quick fading tan head. Smell is very sweet, alcohol and oak. Taste is also sweet, considering the 16% the alcohol is well hidden. Oak, dark fruits, chocolate, red wine. Warming and a dry finish.
