SinH4 (6113) - Garching b. M?nchen, 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.

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.

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

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.

andrepintado (3598) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - AUG 21, 2017
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.

larsniclas (7187) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2017
Bottled from Systembolaget Black with a small, tan head. Chocolate, tar, oak, prat in both aroma and flavour. Sweet and vinous.

neongolden (1780) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2017
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours black with a small medium tan head and lace. Aroma of nougat, cocoa powder, toffee, moderate vanilla and roast, light licorice, notes of dark fruit (plum, fig), bourbon is present but not particularly dominant, sweet overall. On the tongue, much drier overall with just some initial sweetness, notes of dark toffee and molasses, cacao nibs, sweetened black coffee, burnt grain, charred wood, licorice, touches of whiskey and vanilla, spirit heat. Becoming quite dry and bitter on the back end with further notes of tar, coffee grounds, burnt grains and wood, with a little whiskey making itself felt in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Surprisingly little spirit quality even if there’s a bunch of wood, compared to many current BBA stouts. Solid.

weordie (1352) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2017
Pours black with a thin head. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Heavy alcohol flavour, bourbon and vanilla mainly with a big smokey finish. A top beer for fans of BA beers.

beer_est_deus (1315) - örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2017
Kolsvart med ett riktigt kakao brunt skum. Doft: Grädde, kakao, choklad, kola likör, super sött kaffe, söt lakrits, lite lite kött. Stark stark 8:a. Smak: Gräddig kaffe kola likör, kraftigt rostat, jord, lite barkiga barr.

vincentvega72 (844) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2017
Mooi zwart bier, mokkakleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt. Aroma en smaken van hout, bourbon, chocolade, koffie, likeur. Zo zacht en zoo in balans. Beter dan dit ga je echt niet vinden. Magistraal in alle vormen. Pure perfectie !!!!
