PowY (1127) - AUSTRIA - NOV 26, 2017
From bottle at Craft Bier Fest, Vienna. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a tan colored head. Lots of bourbon in the aroma along with oak, vanilla and some roasted malt (caramel, toffee) in the back together with some alcohol. Very nice smell - smooth and balanced. Full body with a light to medium sweetness and a light to medium bitterness - very well balanced. Flavor of roasted malt with notes of chocolate, cocoa, raisins, figs, bourbon, oak, vanilla. Overall very smooth and well balanced with some noticeable but never offending alcohol - a great beer.

Bottle at CBF Wien.

Black body, with a medium, creamy, coffee colored head.

Aroma of bourbon, wood, booze, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, cocoa, molasses, some coffee, some liquorice.

Tastes quite similar, with more tobacco, a bit less boozy.

Full, oily mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.

Finishes warm, medium roasty, a bit dry, a bit sweet, wooden, with tobacco, cocoa, liquorice, some coffee.



Tasty. A quite typical bourbon ba Imperial Stout, smooth and well balanced. Alcohol is noticeable, but not too overwhelming. Lovely, warming sipper.

Thnx to the antwerp Untappd crew ! Pours black, good off-white head. Smell is boozy, roasty. Taste is full, sharp, woody, whiskey, booze, dark grains, tad sweet, dark chocolate. Nice, but way too boozy and a bit of a mess, rather than showing one nice barrel aspect.
