Jag har så många öl att betygsätta avyer en stor åldrig öldrinkning med min goda vän Jesse, att jag inte har tid att betygsätta alla dessa och i många fall hade för öl att minnas storheten i dessa öl. Till ära för mitt svenska arv, jag skickar detta på svenska för alla recensioner från den dagen. Tack Gud för god öl !! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cata ratebeer Asturias en el kraken 07..05..2017. Botella 66 cl. Por aňo 2014. Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro poco persistente. Aromas y sabores intensos maltas tostadas suaves con ligeros toques ahumados. Ligeras lactosa y frutos secos. Final con intensa sensación de licor bourbon. Maderas empapadas y ligeros caramelos tostados algo carbonizados. Cuerpo medio a intenso fino, sedoso, suave, fácil de beber ligeramente denso y espumoso. Muy buen paso por boca y gran sensación licorosos y bourbon al final con ligero amargo final maltosos quemado y ligeramente carbonizado. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

illidurit (2341) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle pour at The Sycamore. Malty semisweet aroma, flourless chocolate cake, mild spirit notes. Flavor is disjointed, heavy bready wheaty malt without the smooth chocolate and oak I expect from a 3-4-year-old bourbon barrel aged beer. Carbonation is also coarse and distracting.

anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 16, 2017
At Sycamore, vintage 2013. Pitch black as all of them. Strong bourbon, lots of wood, caramel, some vanilla, boozy. Intense but not overpowered, surprisingly drinkable, some booze though. Strong bitterness, still sticky. Good.

ineedbeer (2154) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2016 Poured from a 2010 vintage bottle. Aroma is malt forward with moderate chocolate notes, some light roast, hints of leather, tobacco and honey. Light oak notes with medium light bourbon character. Some light dark fruit notes. Pours black with a medium small, thick, mocha head that shows excellent retention as it slowly recedes to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and medium legs. Flavor has a medium light sweetness with a lot of dark chocolate notes. Moderate roast with some light tobacco, leather and ash. Moderate bourbon notes with some light oak. Light honey with hints of anise and dark fruit. Light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice stout but the age has lightened up the malt profile a bit too much and added some anise and dark fruit. 2010 vintage is a 3.8. 2011 vintage has a lot more malt character in the form of richer chocolate notes. There are less honey notes, tobacco and leather as well. Bourbon notes come through cleaner as well. 2011 is a 4.0. 2013 vintage has more dark fruit and leather/tobacco notes than the 2011. The chocolate is also not as rich, but there his a bit more bourbon character. 2013 is a 3.9. 2014 vintage is more similar to 2011 with lots of rich, creamy chocolate notes. Less dark fruit and more bourbon. 2014 is also a 4.0

(FiftyFifty Imperial Eclipse Stout - Four Roses Single Barrel) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a snifter, marked 3/2013, ABV 11.9% on the bottle. Black coloured body, one finger of dark brown head on top, with good density and retention. Aroma has lots of bourbon and vanilla on the front, then alcohol, some chocolate. Very nice taste with roasted malts and chocolate and plenty of bourbon, light tanines, vanilla. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.
