COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial stout, aged in bourbon barrels, gives notes of roasted malt on a coffee, dark chocolate and caramel background. The velvety palate is sustained by a sagacious amount of alcohol warmth that give this beer the taste and feel of a fine spirit.

Tap at Churchkey. Dark brown pour with a clingy dense head. Aroma of bourbon, dark fruit, very mild hint of band aid. Medium palate - expected more density. Booziness emerges late.

LouisP (392) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2016
Une bière noire, opaque, avec une faible carbonatation, probablement dûe au vieillissement en barriques de bourbon. La bière offre des arômes de malt torréfié, d’alcool fort, de toffee, de mélasse et de fruits confis. En bouche, on reconnait bien l’aspect cremeux d’un stout, avec une impression liquoreuse interessante sans doute amener par le vieillissement en fût. C’est étonnamment facile à boire pour une bière à 10%, on oublie facilement la quantité d’alcool à coups de grosses gorgées. Le corps manque peut-être d’un peu de complexité pour être vraiment considéré comme une grande biere.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2016
Bouteille 75cl, merci Pierre T. Brune foncée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme au nez finement boisé de Bourbon, le tout est fin mais suffisant pour offrir une belle complexité au niveau des effluves. Chocolaté, fève de Tonka, petite amertume houblons en rétro. Palais est boisé - chêne, impression de chataignes grillées, amertume fine, caramel avec un fini léger de Bourbon qui offer une petite composante douce vanilla en fin de bouche.

angel77 (3112) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 1, 2016
Caña en la Ipa Gijón IV aniversario 01..10..2016. (r111). Color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscuro. Aromas y sabores maltosos algo quemados con buenas dosis de envejecido en barril y de bourbon con ligeros quemados maderas y carbón y cereales junto con una sensación licorosa alta. Cuerpo medio a intenso con quemados y mas carácter de licor y de bourbon que se imperial stout. Así con todo bastante Buena.
