COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey "Bourbon." He built his distillery in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1790 - 203 years before began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!
Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malter Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, dark fruits, chocolate and roasted malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more coffee, dark fruits, more chocolate and roasted malts. Very tasty.

Nose is sweet bourbon, chocolate, caramel, candy, taste is very sweet, chocolate, huge caramel, maybe little vanilla, sweet bourbon, a bit peanut butter, could be thicker and more complex. I would prefer less sweetness. Although palate is very pleasant with uniquely balanced bitter-sweetness, dominating caramel, long lasting aftertaste. But I know beers with more complex and interesting and longer aftertaste and thicker body. Very good dessert beer category.

A big thanks Tony for that one!
Apparence : Brune foncée au versement, noire dans le verre, léger col brun, peu de rétention et de dentelle.
Nez : Bourbon intense, vanille, sucre brûlé, toffee, fudge, sensation d’alcool dans les narines.
Goût : Big boozy chocolate bourbon flavors… ouin, c’est ça qui m’est venu en tête. Épicé en finale, touche de sucre coupé rapidement par le baril et l’alcool bien ressenti. Légère amertume qui parvient tant bien mal à se frayer un chemin à travers tout ça. Tout de même, c’est équilibré.
Sensation : Corps assez dense, présence des saveurs élevée en bouche, effervescence faible, longue tenue de la finale.
Bref : Voici un excellent exemple de la façon d’équilibrer une bière dépassant les 17% d’alcool. Certes, l’alcool est bien présent. Par contre, celui-ci fait partie d’un tout avec le malt, le fut et les houblons. C’est étonnant comment malgré l’intensité des saveurs et la présence d’alcool, cette bière finit par bien descendre et ne jamais devenir lassante. Un beau mariage qui laisse présager une chose : excellente avec moins d’un an dans le corps, elle doit l’être autant vieillie.

33cl från systembolaget. Helt fantastisk. Smakar massor av burbon. Dock lite väl spritig.

elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle @ Wally’s. Robust aroma of vanilla, caramelized brown sugar, campfire smore, mocha. Chewy mouthfeel, warming heat hinting at bourbon. Rick flavors layed on thick: black malt, fresh cookies, burnt brown sugar. Finishes with lingering campfire smore and bittersweet chocolate sweetness. Bold and sexy, rather than subtle and suggestive, this is the ultimate celebration of bourbon aged brews, though arriving at a market filled with others similar in nature.

Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle. This is a big oily, bourbon scented, booze bomb of a beer. Nice wood, fig, and raisin floavours coming through. Lots of alcohol warmth. Worth a try.
