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.

Oil black pour. Super viscous. Gasoline smell with loads of coffee, dark cocoa, roasted malt and hop. Thick body. Dark and bitter and then sweetens up in the finish. Can’t detect much heat but I’m feeling it almost immediately.

2016 bottle shared at tasting. Black colour, small beige head. Aroma of strong coffee, vanilla, toasted coconut, bourbon, with notes of dark chocolate - nice and complex. Taste is medium+ sweet, medium- bitter, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, with bitter cocoa and wood in the finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Definitely not disappointing BA RIS - rich and balanced, although could be thicker.

Piana drobna, kremowa, całkiem trwała. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzysty. W aromacie wyrazista czekolada, wanilia, kawa, bourbon i drewno - w tej właśnie kolejności. Fajnie. Smak intensywny, słodki, palony, czekoladowy, waniliowy, kawowy, bourbonowy, w tle jakiś kokos, tonka, lody kakaowe, nieco sztuczny olejek migdałowy... W kontrze dość wysoka, tytoniowo palona goryczka, sporo ciała, niskie, drobne wysycenie, lekko popiołowe, wyklejające i rozgrzewające w odbiorze.
Potężne, kompleksowe piwo - wszystkiego jest tu dużo, wszystko jest dosadne, wręcz agresywne, ale to w końcu Russian Imperial Stout, w dodatku Bourbon Barrel Aged, co więcej, prawdopodobnie na sterydach (z aromatami?)... Mi to odpowiada!

W aromacie przede wszystkim kawa, wsparta lekkim kokosem i niestety wsparta czymś dziwnym podchodzącym pod żelazo. W smaku też króluje kawa, tutaj natomiast wsparta gorzką czekoladą, która przez dłuższy czas zostaje w ustach. Na pewno jest to dobre piwo, ale raczej nie jest to piwo dorastające do swojej legendy. Wszystko poza delikatną nutą kojarząca się z żelazem w tym piwie gra, ale gra nie w jakiś legendarnie intensywny i przyjemny sposób. Pomijając oczekiwania, jest to po prostu dobre, a nawet bardzo dobre piwo.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 Smell of caramel, roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and wood barrel itself. Come in deep dark red brown with thin tan crown. Taste of roasted malt, bitter offee, slightly sweet, very smooth, complex but well balanced. Not taste sour coffee as it gets warm like other founder’s beer. Seeing oak barrel when drinking, just wish it more pronounced. Slightly slimy texture. One of best beer I drank.

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, vanilla, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a slight dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, vanilla, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing barrel it aged on, bringing loads of vanilla, working perfectly with the chocolate and coffee already present. Amazing aroma and taste, with a perfect appearance and palate as well.

Poobah (429) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Poured black with a tan head and an espresso, vanilla, dark chocolate nose. Smooth intro with a lightly-carbonated, malty mouthfeel followed by a caramel, espresso, dark chocolate, raisin, date, syrupy finish with some alcohol warming.
