Weve 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 beers 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.

Tap from the source (cask) - Aroma was nice, raisin heavy, rye, wood, bourbon, tobacco chaw. Pours black with a rich, deep tan head. Somewhat flat, too mellow on the tongue. Creamy as all get out but too soft. Cherry, chocolate, fudge and bourbon.....just came across as imbalanced and disconnected to me. Maybe this isnt as good on cask...not sure, but I was not impressed.

Really great mild bourbon flavor. Does exactly what it should do- excellent execution. The bottle is from 2012, tried it in February 2017. Really nice. Really drinkable. Solid!

Black with little brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, slight candle wax, phenols, rum like aromas, slight smoke. Taste is sweet dark chocolate with little smokey touch and bitter finish. Only a very very little spicy in the finish. It is so incredibly smooth and drinkable, like hot chocolate or something with a little carbonation. This is it! New top 1 for me!

750ml bottle (thx, Jonatahan G.!) at Alexs. Vintage 2015. Pours a dark brown with a dark beige head. Aroma is sweet with bourbon, coffee and leather notes. Taste is the same, still boozy. Very good.

Black color. Loads of phenol in the aroma, then roasted malts, burning alcohol. Medium body strength; nice chocolate flavor, hints of liquorice and coffee, tobacco and bourbon, but also very burning alcohol. The roasted liquorice in the final doesnt really fit for me.

Sampel butelki w Chmielarni. Świetny aromat vanilia, kakao, kokosa, kawy. W smaku podobnie, słodko i pojawiają się też ciemne owoce. Bardzo gładkie, kremowe i pełne. Wybitna rzecz.
