rosenbergh (12033) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2018
22 oz bottle. From boxbeers.dk. Black color with a small creamy dark tan head. Sweet Bourbon, roasted malt, darkness and general delightfulness in the aroma. The flavor is pure yumminess... roasted malt, Bourbon, sweetness, mild soy sauce, mild coffee and some darkness. Wow! This is so tasty. Extremely well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (4166) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 4, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2018 Botella 66 cl en Cimmeria 27..12..2017 (r1017) sin lote ni fdcpref legibles. Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro persistente. Sabores intensos maltosos tostados con cacaos ligeras lactosas, vainillas y buenos toques de maderas empapadas en whisky y licores. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Fina y suave en boca. Suave amargo algo seco al final. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda alguna

bjorn77 (920) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 3, 2018
Aromat: świetny, intensywny, mocny, zawiesisty. Cała masa czekolady gorzkiej i mlecznej, śliwki suszone w czekoladzie, wanilia, szlachetna whisky nie przykrywająca całości, kawa, nuty palone, ciemne owoce. Wygląd: czarne jak smoła, brunatna, niewysoka, drobnopęcherzykowa warstwa piany. Smak: czekolada gorzka, suszone śliwki, wiśnie w czekoladzie, wanilia, beczka po whisky wyraźna, ale dobrze wkomponowana w resztę piwa, whisky w postaci nut szlachetnego alkoholu, szorstkie drewniane nuty. Odrobinka sosu sojowego. Świetny balans, dużo słodyczy i dużo nut palonych. Beczka świetna, wnosi wiele dobrego do tego piwa. Goryczka nawet spora, palona i zalega dłuższą chwilę, fajne ostre i agresywne piwko. Odczucie: bardzo gładkie i wyklejające, puszysta tekstura, ciało spore choć mogło by być większe, nisko nasycone, dobrze ułożone, finisz gorzkawy. Całość: znakomite, świetnie zbalansowane, bogate i ciekawe piwo. Jest tu wszystko co być powinno, i jest w sam raz. Bardzo fajne śliwki, wiśnie i ciemne owoce, świetna beczka. Nie wiem czy to najlepsze piwo z Hoppin Frog ale na pewno jedno z lepszych. Z satysfakcją stwierdzam jednak że nasz Samiec Alfa 2017 minimalnie lepszy:) 9/4/8/4/17

DonGregorio (641) - POLAND - JAN 2, 2018
Bottle. Black beer with small beige / brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, caramel, notes of roast, coffee, cocoa, vanilla. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter, of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasty, vanilla, with notes of coffee, dark bread, wood. Chocolate roasty finish. Medium to full body, oily, velvety texture, soft to average carbonation. Just a hint of bourbon barrel. Overall very good barrel aged imperial stout, but not perfect and not outstanding. On the same level as base version.
