ciocanelu (3000) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 11, 2017
Black color with mocha head. Aroma has toffee, spicy chocolate, cacao and a light rum note. Taste has bourbon, salted caramel, slightly astringent dark chocolate, cacao bitterness and green coffee beans on the aftertaste. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A really well made imperial stout.

geolgau (518) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - OCT 31, 2017
Aroma is intense and complex: vanilla, deep-roasted malts, bourbon, wood notes, hazelnut waffles, cocoa beans. Taste is rich and complex with roasted malts, dark chocolate, alcohol spices and bourbon. Oily, sweet, bitter and roasty aftertaste. Absolute bourbon beast.

PhillyCraft (7985) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Bottle shared, pours a dark black color with small coffee head. Aromas and flavor of roasted malt, toffee, licorice, fudge, barrel, fudge, coffee, and rich grains. So complex and warming in the belly. Sticky mouthfeel.

SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle, many thanks derA! Pitch black color with beige head. Aroma is vanilla, caramel, chocolate, sweet. Taste is caramel, vanilla, chocolate, slightly tart finish. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very nice, but the nice elegant earthiness of the beer is lost in the barrel flavours.

3.6
jonas (8157) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle. Black, dark brown creamy head. Salty vanilla and tobacco nose, some seaweed/iodine. Dry wood, tobacco, sweet vanilla beans, cocoa. Medium full, creamy mouthfeel. Salty light lactic finish. Preferred the non barrel version.

Xebbe (183) - - SEP 16, 2017
Väldigt trevlig doft. Russin, choklad, bourbon och vanilj. Smaken blir för spritig även om den generellt är trevlig. Hade varit trevlig led lite mindre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (2381) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 1, 2017
Score: 9 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 17


330 ml bottle from Etre Gourmet, bottled 05 Sep 16.

Pitch black body, with a small, creamy, moderately lacing, coffee-colored head.

Very smooth aroma of bourbon, oak, dark chocolate, dark fruits, tobacco, coffee, cocoa beans, liquorice.

Tastes quite similar, with some booze, more tobacco and liquorice, but also some vanilla.

Full, oily, velvety mouthfeel, with a soft carbonaton.

Finishes roasty-bitter, medium dry, warm, very oaky, with tobacco, liquorice, coffee, cocoa beans, a bit sweet, with subtle vanilla.



Very tasty. The nose is my highlight, very smooth, dense and complex, with a lovely bourbon note. Taste has some booze, but overall really well balanced for the ABV. There's really a lot going on, sweet, roasty, bitter and oaky notes in very good harmony. Lovely, round example of a Bourbon BA Imperial Stout.

4.2

33cl bottle. Dark brown black color. Brown thin head. Taste is medium bitter and light to medium sweet. Medium body. Super silky. Aroma and flavour is chocolate, roasted, vanilla, cinnamon, chestnuts, chili, herby.
