4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 Bottles [2009,2011,2012]
Pours black (very dark brown) with no head. Aroma is of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, bourbon. (+vegetal note in 2011 (I guess I was eating celery at that moment)). Taste is of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, booze, bourbon, warming alcohol. Very complex. Palate: Full bodied. Overall: Those vintages were pretty similar to me, only very faint differences. One thing is sure, this beer is pretty good, and there is alot of bourbon involved. [2009: 3/9/10/4/18] [2011:3/8/10/4/18] [2012: 4/9/9/4/17]
Mega czekoladowe, bourbon i beczka. Do tego kawa. Aż oczy się otworzyły. Do tego suszone owoce, migdały. Piękne piwo. Piotrek4 (272) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 9, 2017
2016 Świetne piwo. W aromacie bardzo intensywne. Dużo bourbonu w alkoholowej przyjemnej postaci, poza tym kawa, kawa, palone nuty, suszone owoce, żurawina. W smaku podobnie intensywnie, zdecydowanie wielowymiarowe. Na początku atakuje fajne ziarno kawy, później wanilia i mleczna czekolada, następnie migdały i kokos, a na koniec w kontrze pojawia się dużo drewna i lekkie rozgrzewanie.

500ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Pitch black color. No head. Sweet, caramel, toffee, alcohol, woody and oak in aroma. Caramel, roast, sweet, alcohol, vanilla, dark chocolate cake in taste. Roast, caramel, dark fruits in aftertaste. Sweet and caramel in aftertaste. Tad too sweet for me. Mellow mouthfeel. Very solid brew. Juks (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2017
500ml bottle, thanks martjoobolut. Pours almost full black, small beige head as ring. Aroma of roast, sweet cocoa, chocolate, some woodyness. Taste is chocolatey, bourbon, some alcohol, woody. Full body, below average carbo. Nice imp stout, it's good, really, but worth the price? suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2017

Taste like Heaven! I've been waiting patiently all year for it to come back!! DPveritasgold (3) - - SEP 30, 2017 does not count
This is the best overall beer I have tasted. Puts other bourbon barrel aged stouts to shame. Powerful bourbon aroma and flavor.

Pours a near black from a tap with a head the color of coffee with too much cream. Nice oaky, roasted malt aroma, hints of charcoal and even salted caramel. Flavor is similarly complex with a fair amount of oak and some rich chocolate. Thick with a boozy burn. Very good beer. Marko (5928) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 20, 2017
2016 - 13.8%. Randomly got to taste this... thanks Iznogud, JFK1000, Maks & Sandi! Each. As I got a taste from each of their glasses for some reason. :D Anyway, black, still, no head when I got to it, but that wasn't immediately. Full aroma... heavy maltiness, figs, vanilla, bourbon. The taste... wow, silky, warming, bourbon barrel, vanilla, figs and a dose of cocoa, with slightly rough alcohol around the edges, I feel like this was still just a bit raw, even though it was genuinely elegant. Excellent beer, not 100% my style, but still - wow!
