4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. Drinking it to celebrate the end of Spring Semester. Pours dark, oily black/brown. Very opaque. Head is thoroughly brown with a rusty red tinge. Such a great looking beer. Aroma is slight chocolate and coffee but with a dry, woody scent. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich and slightly oily. Taste is chocolate, oak, a bit of malt, coffee. The hops are in the background. Not as dark as I expected but not in a bad way. Similar to a blend of milk chocolate shake and a shot of espresso. The alcohol is hidden pretty well and it is a fairly mellow beer. Guessing because of the barrel aging. This is a fantastic beer and makes me appreciate that there are beers out there like this. One of the top 10 beers that I’ve tried. If you can find it, buy it.
Bottle. Black colour, beige head. Aroma is intensive bourbon, also vanilla, a bit of coffee. Good, but not exceptional. anstei (2748) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours black and with a dark beige foam. Aroma is green peppers, little barrel with vanilla, wood. Body is heavy, sweet and bitter, but also oxidizedly acidic to relieve some of this massive beer. Spicy again, but in a balanced way. Good. SinH4 (6573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2017
Bottle. Black color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted, earthy. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very nice, not too much barrel, just the perfect amount to give it great balance! szczupaczu (251) - Rurzyca, POLAND - NOV 27, 2017
Pite na panelu degust. Zrobiło wrażenie, może nie jakieś wybuchowe ale generalnie spoko. Mocno palone, gryzące goryczkowo, dość wytrawne. Ewidentnie czuć beczkę w dosłownym tego słowa znaczeniu - czyli drewno, poza tym ziemiste nuty. No i czekolada przyjemna. Niekoniecznie pod mój gust ale piwo bardzo dobre.

A nice and lingering brown head. Clear black color.
Oaky and roasted aroma with nice vanilla touch.
The vanilla smothes the hard roasted malts in the taste.
Sweet caramell taste with a robust bitterness.

650 ml bottle, bottled 14.11.2016, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours a thick black with a light brown head. The aroma is full of roasted malt (toffee, cocoa, nuts, burnt wood) along with oak, prunes, raisin and quite some vanilla. Medium to full creamy body with a low carbonation, a medium sweetness, a light bitterness and some noticeable alcohol - nicely balanced. The flavor is full with loads of roasted malt - toffee, chocolate, hazelnut, burnt wood, licorice - along with wood and vanilla. Different roasted malt flavors which evolve from mildly roasted malt to burnt notes towards the finish. Overall not to sweet and lovely diverse Imperial Stout.

650 ml bottle from Beergium, bottled Nov 14 2016.
Black body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, tobacco, some leather, some smoke, liquorice.
Tastes similar, pretty dry, with more wood.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium roasty, wooden, with coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, some smoke, slight leather.
Very nice. Greatly balanced, with a great dryness throughout. Well integrated barrel notes, just providing some more dry wooden notes. Not as good as the regular version in my option, but great stuff.
