Pitch black, creamy, small and lasting tan head, some sticky lacing. Strong oak and bourbon aroma, roasted malts, vanilla. Tastes intense, roasted bitter. Strong roasted dark malts, bourbon, oak, vanilla, mild coffee, dark chocolate. Wonderful mouthfeel, full bodied and creamy, very soft carbonation. Long finish. Excellent Imperial Stout, classic, wonderful.

Idiosynkrasie (8059) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2017
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige to tan head. With opening the bottle an instantaneous dissemination of intense Bourbon flavours takes place, notes of vanilla, oak, treacle and molasses fill the air. Taste is sweet-ish dark malty, notes of vanilla, oak, treacle, some dark chocolate, a touch of liquorice, molasses, roasted nuts; full body, smooth, soft and silky palate.

Bottle @ home. Black colour with a small brown head. Smells roasty, chocolate, oak, wood, bourbon. Tastes bourbon, oak, wood, chocolate, roasty. Quite boozy but that’s okay. Full body, nice carbo.

dzudohonor (308) - POLAND - MAY 4, 2017
Intensywny aromat dębiny, wanilli i kawy, gorzka czekolada, aż wykręca język, sporo kawy, beczka po bourbonie raczej w tle, gęste, oleiste, alkohol świetnie ukryty, długi aftertaste pozostawia posmak kokosa na języku. Bardzo przyjemne piwo, nie przegiete w żadną stronę.

EdKing (2656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
Bottle from Hop Burns & Black. Opaque black out of the bottle tan brown medium creamy head. Nose is sweet oak wood, spicy oak, vanilla oak, bourbon soaked oak, dark chocolate, Marmite yeast extract, black sugar, syrup, roasted malt. Very solid nose. Taste... oh this is special. I’ve had this for about six months... silky super rich dark chocolate, cocoa dust, syrupy chocolate. The oak, vanilla and bourbon is really nice and subtle. Roasted malts. Super smooth and silky. I think this is the best UK bourbon barrel aged beer I’ve had and it blows away most American cloying bourbon barrel aged bombs. Shame this won’t get hyped but this is one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Lore (2922) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 4, 2017
deep dark brown colour, half inch creamy beige head; aroma and taste of soy sauce, whisky, roasted malt and nuts, vanilla notes, herbal liqueur and some dark chocolate; good imp stout

Kavu (5156) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2017
0,33l bottle brought by a friend from Buxton. Pours pitch black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with bourbon. Flavor is roasted malts, ashtray, bourbon, dark chocolate, alcohol and hops. Good stuff.
