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.

Bottle shared @Pułapka, Gdańsk

Coffee took over the aroma. I wish the aroma was more complex. A bit sweet taste, coffee and cocoa, mild oat finish. Would love move body

portwood (254) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
2016 @ 11.9%. Roasty, earthy, coffee, bitter chocolate, tobacco. Strong, bittersweet, powdery, prickly carbonation. Burnt caramel, bitter chocolate, stale coffee, tarry tobacco, powdery dry. Very complex but something about the (stale) coffee smell/taste keeps it from going much over 4pts (bottle bb 12/20/17)

EerieDrinks (105) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
1 finger light tan head. Pitch black beer. Aroma is mostly sweet vanilla and coffee with a lovely boozy kick, but man.. Nothing else is needed. Could smell this all day. Taste follows the aroma with a pleasant whiskey afterburn. So simple yet so delicious. A bit short aftertaste though, which drags it down a point. A strong 7. Mouthfeel is medium thick and slightly oily. Quite dry at the back, probably from the barrel aging. Overall: Very nice Imp. stout. Kinda understand the hype but nowadays, this baby has a lot of competitors in the scene and it isnt a 10/10 with todays standards. Still, it holds its own and this, along with Breakfast Stout and Imp. Stout by Founders should all be Stouts that one should always have at home.

Marko (5347) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 23, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 Bottle (2016) courtesy of Iznogud, shared with Trolleo and Veceo. Almost black, tiny brownish head. Enormous coffee and bourbon aroma, more soft than roasty. Well hidden strength. Lovely, lovely aroma, smooth as f*ck. Chocolate, coffee (slightly more than chocolate) , bourbon, smooth with prickly carbonation. Smooth, simply tasty, technically flawless. A lovely beer, worthy of hype!

toscanoigor (203) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 22, 2017
Garrafa 2016/consumida em Mar 2017: Cerveja preta, espessa, com espuma bege de boa formao e mdia durao. Aroma predominante de caf e cacau, lcool e ao fundo malte torrado, leve baunilha. O sabor tem predomnio do torrado, base de malte doce, mas equilibrado pelo amargor, com bastante caf em destaque. O final bem alcolico, a impresso de se estar tomando o prprio bourbon dos barris na qual a cerveja foi envelhecida. Bem encorpada, licorosa, mas com carbonatao que a deixa bem fcil de beber. Muito, muito saborosa, realmente faz jus ao sucesso.

crim (276) - POLAND - MAR 22, 2017
w aromacie wszystko przykrywa mocno kawa, gdzieś tam w tle jest beczka i troche wanili W smaku jest pełne i dosyć kwasne, podobnie jak w aromacie beczkę mozna wyczuć gdzieś tam w tle beczkę, taka juz dosyć stara jakby z ławka w kościele utopiona w alko, jest tez bardzo długi posmak kawowy Podsumowując bardziej smakowało mi pite przed chwila edge barrica #24, ktre jest bardziej subtelne, deserowe i czekoladowe, kbs wydaje mi sie ze spodoba sie bardziej fanom agresywniejszych piw i fanom kawy, ogolnie dobre piwo
