Made from our award-winning imperial stout, rated one of the top 50 best beers in the world in 2008. This bodacious oatmeal Russian imperial stout will crush you like no other. This is the grand-daddy of all stout styles, with an intensely deep roasted and full bodied flavor. A robust hop character adds a refreshing balance. Aged in Heaven Hill Whiskey barrels.

caesar (6814) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2010
Bottled @ home. Dark color, brown head. Aroma of chocolat malt, roasted, coffee, very nice whisky oaky tones. Big malty taste of chocolat and coffee, quite bitter. Fantastic stuff!

ben4321 (6005) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle, 1/29/10

Aroma: Some roasted malts, bourbon, oats, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate
Appearance: It’s a pitch black, tar-like beer with a thin, dark brown head
Flavor: Flavor is mostly dark chocolate and bourbon, dark malts, some bitterness as it ends
Palate: A medium-full bodied beer with a smooth creamy feel, low on carbonation, and some ABV burn
Overall Impression: Overall this beer is pretty solid, though the bourbon character is definitely very strong, it is not completely overpowering. This beer hold up well to the bourbon aging treatment.

si presenta simile alla versione base con l’aggiunta i note di whisky un po affumicato e legno

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Whiskey aroma comes up immediately while pouring this dark concoction with a light kahki head. Coffee, tobacco and dark semisweet chocolate also contribute. Full bodied and oily with a slight dry cocoa powder finish. Chocolately flavor with a good dose of whiskey. Roasted oatmeal, malts somewhat overpowered by the whiskey. Overall I’d prefer the regular version over this one

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Boozy and molassis drip coming from the nose..with maybe a touch of vanilla, stale cardbnoard, and oatmeal...oh, and some underlying chocolate notes to boot. Pours dark brown with an orange-brown head. THick, sweet and chocolaty flavors..the bourbon influence is evident yet subdued. Clean, super malty with essences of bourbon...However, I think i like the regular version much better.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
22 oz bottle poured black with a tan sand colored head that has enough carbonation to leave a small ring that lasts. Notes of alcohol, whiskey, and heavily roasted malt accentuate the nose. This is a full bodied stout with bread and yeast flavors enhanced by malt, chocolate, coffee and a lingering hint of hop on finish.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Black with a low brown head. Strong scotch-notes in the aroma - basement-like and woody. The flavour is very sweet for an Imperial Stout. There are notes of caffe latte, cocoa, scotch, vanilla and rest sugar. The finish is mildly bitter. I liked the original version much better.

Lowe1983 (1544) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and plenty of oak and alcohol. Flavor is the same without being overly oaked. Amazing blend of flavors of roasted malts and oak. Truly delicious

beernbourbon (1575) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Recently purchased bottle with green cap. Pour is black with a very slow forming small brown head. Aroma is rich and silky malt with lots of dark aromas of: peat, smoke, leather, tobacco, whiskey, and vanilla. Aroma is very rich. Flavor is very true to nose with rich chocolate malts, old cigar room with leather couches, and vanilla. Really easy to drink and a nice chewy body to it. This is great!

na bomba! il passaggio in botti di whisky è perfetto si sentono tutti i sentori legnosi e complessi gia al naso.. in bocca scende morbidissima con un susseguirsi di frutta secca legno caffè tabacco whisky e un amaro finale gradevole...
