COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special Markings: Gold foil neck and white numbering above rear label. Some bottles have paper labels, some do not.

We’ve matured our Russian Imperial Stout in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to create the perfect blend of flavors. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon add another level of complexity to this beer’s already massive flavor profile of chocolate, Ryan Bros. Coffee, and roasted barley. Designed to be enjoyed now or aged in the bottle for years to come, this special release is truly a unique beer that is smooth as it is rare.

Jet black pour with a thin espresso colored head. Aroma of chocolate, oak, a hint of fudge. Thick, viscous mouth. Taste is very chocolate forward with a slight honeyed note (I think there is some oxidation going on here). Reminds me of a mocha with a dry finish, but it is still sweet. Finish is sweet, but there is a dryness in there that balances things out. Nice beer.

Tap at Bottlecraft North Park, San Diego, 22nd November 17. Drank this is a hurry followed by a Parabola, as I browsed the store for take away bottles ahead of the final call at 10pm. Pours black, aroma is coffee, bourbon barrel, wood, vanilla. Taste is smooth and rich, not sweet though, bourbon, vanilla, barrel, coffee, lovely if a bit rushed.

Anvil and Stave, San Diego. Heavy sip, lots of lovely peat flavors highlighted by extra bourbon vanilla barrel. This is a special treat. Thick soap head, nicely poured back in this special room. Woody stain appearance. Touch of oxidation on nose. Sip is boozy, thick and heavy, sweet malt with dark fruit notes. Spicy booze. Thick and delicious. Decadent treat.

Gushing przywitał mnie przy otwarciu! Aromat: wanilia, bourbon, kakao, czekolada, likierowoś i lekka alkoholowa nuta. Smak: czekolada, kakao, kawa, likier, paloność, w kierunku wytrawnym, lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, brakuje mi troszeczkę ciała. Piwo zdecydowanie nie zasługujące na tak wysokie miejsce w rankingu - wersje RVBASS i BAVSS były zdecydowanie lepsze.

Aromat przyjemnie słodki, kawowy, ciut czekoladowy, po ogrzaniu czuć bardzo beczkę w tle. W smaku lekko słodkie, lekko palone, czuć beczkę. Niezbyt gęste, ale mimo wszystko sporo ciała i treściwe. Finisz słodki, lekko palony, drzewny. Alkohol grzeje lekko w przełyk, ale jest ułożony i szlachetny...taki ostry bourbon. Po ogrzaniu świetny aromat. Świetne piwo.

Draft at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Very classic BBA RIS, there is coffee, some roast and ash, dark fruits, strong barrel notes, really good.

It is not thick enough. It is great on roast to coffee to barrel ratio but it seems too watery. Definitely classic in composition, but the mouthfeel is not sufficient.

Absolutely gorgeous, dark chocolate and coffee and the barrel takes your pants down. Must drink if you can.
