UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 Kolsvart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar massor med bourbon, kaffe, vanilj och torkad frukt. Lite fr mycket alkoholsmak, beska och stma men annars perfekt!

Linnet (1774) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2017
Alcohol, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, coffee and licorice, really powerful, and lovely notes from the barrel. Black colour, oily, small Brown head. Heavy salty, heavy sweet, noticable bite, lots of coffe, licorice and chocolate, lovely fudge, vanilla-notes in the end. ABV evident. Fullbodied, oily feel, soft carbonation, warming and roasty finish. Sublime!

cagou007 (1124) - FRANCE - MAR 22, 2017
Pours deep black with thin brown head. Nose is chocolate. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, bourbon, a hint of vanilla. Low carbonation, full body. Long roasted, whisky and alcoholic finish. Alcohol and acidity are a bit too high to reach the "perfect barrel aged imperial stout" label. But very great beer anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ej (1303) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, caramel, smoke and tar. Taste is moderate to strong roast, vanilla, bourbon, smoke, tar, leather and wood. Quite hefty this one. Quite the nice sipper. Some warmth and a light to moderate bitter finish. Some chocolate and coffee as well, but its dominated by the roasted grains and bourbon. Full body and soft co2.

Turtles (2402) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black, small dark brown head, some lacing. Proper boozy bourbon aroma, peat, ash, oak barrels, roasted barley, coffee and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, soft carbonation, chewy and chalky mouthfeel disturbed by some alcohol burn. Raw whiskey taste, woody, ash, dried fruit, chocolate, sugar and alcohol. Raw and unpolished, lacks finesse and smoothness.

Flaska systembolaget. Kolsvart vtska. Doft av borboun, choklad, vanilj och farinsocker. Spritig smak med lite metallisk knsla. Bourbon, kaffe och choklad men inte alls i samma antydan som doften ger.Lite fr platt och vass i munknslan
