From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a waxed and capped 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with no real head, but some bubbly brown lace. The nose is roasted and dark with coffee, dark chocolate, and plenty of oaky vanilla. The flavor is very dry, with coffee, dark chocolate, and roast, with the vanilla, coconut, and maple bourbon rounding everything out. The body is full with light carbonation and a long dark chocolate and coconut, vanilla bourbon finish. This is a very good BA Stout.

33cl bottle from Erzbierschof. Compared to the Hemel & Aarde Bourbon BA which I had just two days ago, this one here wins in many ways: The nose has more barrel aroma, the taste is much more refined and full, and the palate is much more enjoyable through it’s long and complex finish. Tastes a bit too much of alcohol though. Still, a strong beer that I enjoyed very much! King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2014
This is heavy, chocolately, creamy and a bit caramelly. But beneth that there is a fresh almost soury/bitter taste that compromises the beer. It’s therefore not as rounded and balanced as it could have been. SinH4 (4759) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
Black color with small head. Fresh-fruity, oak tanines, coffee and chocolate. Something fresh in there which makes it very different, can’t quite describe it. Spicy, full-bodied imperial stout taste with additional freshness. A good one, and a different one! Zakoon (488) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2014
