Jet black in color with a milk chocolate head. Huge boozy aroma of bourbon. Paired nicely with dark roasted malt. Tons of bourbon and chocolate flavor. Very nicely balanced with a great aftertaste. thomat (4208) - Gï¿½teborg, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
On tap @ CBC-16. Very dark brown with a tiny brown head. Malty and vanilla tones. Malt, oak, vvanilla, fruit and bitterness. Full body with a long malty / fruity finish. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown color almost black, very viscous like oil, with khaki colored head. Bourbon, lots of boozy bourbon on the nose, some chocolate, sugar sweetness, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes very boozy. Lots of bourbon on this, almost overwhelms the beer.

¨CBC. Pours black/brown with a tan head. Lots of roast, fruits, molasses, choko, vanilla, bourbon, choko. Quite heavy good sipper. davidezdonz (632) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 24, 2016
A 375ml bottle of 2015 vintage and poured into a snifter glass. It poured a deep dark black colour with a thin khaki head that dissipated almost just as quickly but leaves some nice spotty lacing. Aromas are strong bourbon, sweet brown sugar, chocolate fudge brownie, molasses and vanilla. Taste starts with sweet molasses followed by bourbon and dark chocolate with some light toffee, caramel and coffee. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation and a warming alcohol feel. Overall a very good Russian Imperial Stout with a nice hit of bourbon that is strong but not harsh and nicely complemented with chocolate, caramel and coffee flavours. I would definitely buy this again. Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2016
CBC 2016, Blue session, thanks to Nische for sharing. Deep dark brown body Spotty lacing. Bubbly ring to the surface. Oak-like nose with dark fruits. Dark malty flavours, including liquorice and chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla oak. Backbone of bourbon. Lingering mid-sweet malt-fruity finish. Just a lovely sipper (Copenhagen 13.05.2016).

Sample at CBC 2016, Blue Session. To be honest this is very similar to the coffee vanilla version. Light roast, chocolate, molasses, vanilla and coffee with balanced bourbon aged notes. A bit lighter vanilla/chocolate but still holds up very well. daje (4548) - NORWAY - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends, july 26th 2015. Black body, medium tanned head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, bourbon. Taste is sweet, massive, medium bitter, vanilla, wood. Extreme complexity from the barelling and malt combo here. This one proves that barrelling can still be a great thing.
