bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2015
33cl bottle bb03/2024 kindly decellared by oldmanriver, merci. Aroma of heavily woodbarreled vanilla bourbon and muscovado caramels with a fruity berry touch. More lively wood in taste, moving over deep bourbon barreled tannins over dry muscovados/molasses towards a serrated cured wood lingering finish. Confident Brewdog hop cocktail for counterbalance, lush berry, orange and stone fruit peel subdominants. Not all too decadent or coating mouthfeel, with even a bit of a lively carbo sparkle. Great dessert accompaniment, not (yet?) quite dessert in itself. colui72 (989) - HONG KONG - AUG 20, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2017 One of the best Imperial Stouts I?ve ever tried. Not easily beatable! Shiny black with thin beige head, aroma is chocolate and bourbon. Taste as well, with vanilla and molasses, low bitterness. But the best is the feeling that drinking this gave me: like drinking a whisky there is a very pleasant warm feeling in the stomach, smooth as hell, lovely feeling of drinking some hot chocolate liquor based on bourbon. Astonishing.

Black, small brown head doesn’t endure very long at all. Aroma is all chocolate and bourbon. Very enticing. Body is medium to big, higher carbonation than expected - pretty spritzy. Taste is syrupy molasses, liquorice, bourbon, coconut, tacky burnt rubber, not THAT boozy considering, but there is a noticeable alcohol tang. Very good. ruigo (2705) - PORTUGAL - JUN 30, 2015
33cl bottle. Real black colour with a thin beige head. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, wood, dates and liquorice in the aroma. Soft to medium carbonation and full body. Taste is a complex mix of sensations, a feast for the senses with chocolate, bourbon, liquorice, coffee and cocoa notes. Overall, a beer that should never end. nordic (630) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2015
