COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

0.33 l bottle bought by Marin & Toni at Edinburgh. Shared with Vinja 666 and Goran. Huge thanks guys for bringing this and Vinja 666 for sharing! Hoppy birthday! Completely black, brown small lasting head. Highly aromatic, ground pepper, very spicy, very heavy on the barrel, alcohol. Dry, alcoholic, aromatic. Full body, silky texture, extremely aromatic finish. I understand why people go mad about this one.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 A legendk hznak egyik legkiemelkedőbb darabja, amit plyafutsom sorn megkstolhattam, idejt sem tudom mr, mita vrtam r, hogy megkaparinthassak egyet. Az imperial stoutok egyik meghatroz pldnya, a pontszmai alapjn a legstabilabb főzetek egyike.

Illatai minden vadsgtl, tolakodstl mentesek, cseppet sem nehzkesek, szinte mr lgiesen knnyűek, annak ellenre, hogy csordulsig teltek aromkkal. Kv, vanlia, csokold untig ismert szvevnye, krmes kavalkdja, s a whisky csontig hatol, minden molekult titat, mgsem erőltetett, eltlzott jellege. A fahords jegyek finomsga elsődleges meghatrozja az znek is, lgy karaktere minősgi tcsokolds, marcipnos, bourbon-s, kakas, stt, mgis gymlcss sznezetű elemek roskadsig telt szelencje, igazi kincsesbnya, melyben minden korty sorn tallhatunk valami sejtelmeset, valami megfoghatatlant, nmi ismeretlent, s mindent, amit egy imperial stout-tl elvrhatunk.

(2015) Pours pitch black with a light brown head dissipating quickly. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, coffee beans, dark chocolate and some dark fruits. Flavour is just the same, and some vanilla and a nice oaky note as well, given by the barrel aging. I was expecting a little bit more from it, considering the hype. Maybe the worst year? Cant wait to try the 2016 thats in my cellar, hoping to taste something better.
