Un brownies liquide avec un glaage la vanille et des notes de petits fruits. Le corps soyeux et velout des eclipse y est encore une fois.

SlovakSniper (5357) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Vintage 2013. Belle coiffe sur cette robe presque noire. Dentelle pour agrmenter le regard. Beau nez de caf, de mlasse, de chocolat, de noisettes et de bourbon lgamment discret. Saveurs riches de mlasse, de rglisse, de chocolat, de caf caramlis, de bois et de malts rtis. Belle complexit. Bouche sensuelle avec sa texture soyeuse et ses bulles tranquilles. Arrire-got de caf et de malts noirs et amers. Un monstre si facile boire. Savoureux stout imprial.

Bomber graciously shared by BigSound. Cheers, Henri! Pours a wonderful stout brown with a tan head. Nose is bourbon, sweet molasses, brown sugar, wood, vanilla, rum-soaked raisins, and some milk chocolate. Flavor is similar with very sweet, very chocolate and molasses flavors throughout. This one is balanced more toward the barrel, but still really nice as the stout dances back with notes of chocolate and cafe con leche. Very enjoyable.

Black pour with a khaki head. Nose is wood, bourbon, vanilla, and alcohol. Chewy palate, light alcohol, smoke, wood, faint vanilla, great finish.

Near headless above an opaque body. Nose of wicked barrel sweetness. Flavour is amazing - boozy, black licorice, burnt sugar, tobacco leaf. Delicious!
