Bottled:Dahlstrom (432) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2015
Sweet and sticky. Packed with raisins, chocolate, toffee, oak barrels and Bourbon. Warm, somewhat boozy finish yet smooth and balanced.
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 355 ml bottle. Pitch black with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of bourbon, oak, syrup, dried fruits, chocolate, caramel and alcohol. Taste is roasted malt, bourbon, syrup, dried fruits and chocolate. Full-bodied with looong bittersweet finsh. "One of the best imperial stouts I’ve had. But I think the 2015 version was better than 2016, less boozy."

roasty, coffee, chocolate, licorice, alcohol, soy sauce, woody, rich and rewarding, the bourbon is there, but I would have wished for it to shine through even more.
Pitch black, medium Brown head, lacing.
Heavy salty, heavy sweet, mid-bitter, slightly peppery, insanely rich and ABV very well integrated.
Extremely fullbodied, oily, almost chewy feel, soft carbonation, very, very long, salty, roasty and warming finish.
If I Could have felt more of the bourbon this would have gotten an even higher mark. Still balancing a beer with this ABV without it being boozy is a feat worthy of a world class brewery, which Avery is! simont1 (620) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, licorice, vanilla. Very sweet with a thick mouthfeel, taste of light biscuit with a lingering licorice and vanilla background, as it warmsup the bourbon is more forward, giving it a slight boozy edge and a more rounded feel, after taste of brown sugar and vanilla.

Pitch black with no head. A: Coffee, tamarind, chocolate, toffee and cherry. Get some plum as well. Kind of sweet and sour on the nose. T: Follows nose with some smokeyness. Hint of vanilla. O: Sweet and complex. Quite boozy. I think will get very nice with some aging!

Palate medium body, full body, thick feel, soft carbonation,
Overall a really nice imperial stout that I would suggest to a friend Hoprider (726) - DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Pours jet black with a dense brown head. Nose: caramel roasted malts, chocolate brownie mix, latte or intensly sugared espresso. Taste: sweet roasted malts, vanilled oak and chocolate cake, slight prune and fruity molasses in the emidiate finnish. The aftertaste is full and rich with creamy chocolate, espresso and the mouthfeel on this masterfull brew is lightly carbonated. I found it very ’Avery’ and that aint bad. Tak Peter aka motherbrother!
