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.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Pitch black colour, minimal creamy brown head; aroma of smooth chocolate mousse, coffee, whisky, dried plum, raisins soaked in alcohol, some wood and vanilla; taste of overripe cherry soaked in liqueur, dried plum, whisky, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, coffee, and hints of ash; extremely strong and, at the same time, very smooth; just simply incredible! Definitely one of the best beers of my life in one of the best bars Ive visited so far (Himmeriget) - can you get any more as birthday gift when you are 40?☺

Valsznűleg ez lesz a srzs magasfoka, gondoltam magamban az ital pohrba tltst kvetően, majd kiss htrbb ltem, hogy az aromafelhők arcul csapsa elől menedkre leljek. Ilyen illatokrl eddig ugyanis mg nem hallottam, erre nem is lehet felkszlni, mr ha srre szmt az ember. Nmely bourbon taln kpes ilyesmit produklni, de n mr abban sem bzom. Whiskyben zott fahord szeletei, vanlis, kkuszos, kvs fergeteg, mennyei aromk tncra perdlse. Ilyesmi a mesben sincs... Knnyed vonalakkal felvrtezett, elegns szerkezete mrnki csoda mdjra tartja meg a behemtul gazdag szerkezetet, amelyben sszeprselődik minden, amit az illatai előjeleznek. Olvasztott csokold-vanlia-kkusz fagylalt kiknnytett, alkoholl varzsolt verzija, mazsolval megszrt, whiskyvel locsolt kvfolyam, mennyei maltalikőr. Nem a htkznapok itala, de hozz illő alkalom nem sok van egy tlagember letben. A jellemzs megrsa itt mr kevsnek bizonyul, ezt egyszerűen rezni kell.
