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.

750ml bottle (thx, Jonatahan G.!) at Alex’s. 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 doesn’t really fit for me.

Bottle from BelgianBeerGal. Opaque black with a thin brown head. Huge aroma of vanilla, bourbon, oak. Smooth flavor with notes of chocolate, vanilla, licorice, and bourbon.

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.

Bottle. Pours black with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, wood, chocolate, vanilla. Thick body, chewy, roast, dark chocolate, wood, vanilla, nice barrel character, smooth yet complex, can always count on this beer to be amazing.

Bottle, organized by SinH4, many thanks! Aroma is thick bourbon and vanilla, but also some green apples, phenolic. Body stays super heavy and even more sweet than the others. Sticky and boozy. Still good, but not as good as hyped.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2017 2016 bottle, many thank Max! Black color with small beige head. Aroma is green apples, phenolic, ethanol, oak sugar, chocolate. Taste is again green apples and phenols, oak sugar, light tartness. Higher carbonation than the other Speedways today. Not as good as expected, it?s a bit too phenolic. A slight disappointment for Alesmith standards. Maybe this year was not as great as previous ones? Or maybe I?m becoming a BA grump now as well.

Opens up after a half hour of decanting. Still, not on par with what it should be. 8-5-8-4-16

2012 bottle, thanks Koelschtrinker.

Black color with tan head. Aroma is bourbon sugar, molasses, coffee. Taste is caramel, vanilla, coffee, wood sugar, molasses again. Oily mouthfeel. Viscous body, very delicious.

Mooi, perfect zwart. Ruikt perfect. Smaakt eigenlijk ook perfext: lekker dik, vol, je proeft de barrel, alcoholisch (maar dat verwacht je ook bij 12%). Topper!
