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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottle 750ml. Pours black, with low beige head, featuring good lacing. Aroma is of malt, coffee, bourbon. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, wood. Nice balance: Overall: quality stuff, pretty good. [Note: The last bottle I had had clear bretts notes, and was a tad funky. Very good too.]

Zlotta (3407) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from 0.75 l bottle at RBBSG 2016 in Evergem. Hazy, very dark red to black with a light brown head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee, vanilla and some oak. Sweetish-malty, quite roasty taste of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some oak, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours dark, unclear coffee in color with an easily dissipating grayish cocoa head, from the barrel aging. The aroma gives a bit of infection - wild yeast, and some roasted malts. The body is also thin, from the barrel aging I assume, and some flavors of for me, again, lightly infected yeast notes with carmel and roasted malts.

Bottle 0.75l at Ratebeer Belgian Summer Gathering 2016 Evergem, Belgium. 03.09.2016. Thanks Klaas for hosting and RB guys for sharing today’s beers. Pour it dark colour with small white head. Aroma quite flat with some hints of chocolate. Taste of candy sugar, caramel, roasted malt, some pinch of coffee, yeasty pretty much, medium body, slick feel, sticky, soft carbonation, bitter finish.

pushkinwow (2826) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
750ml bottle, thanks to tom10101, brewed March 2012. Dark brown with a blended mocha head that gradually settles to leave a nice layer across the glass. Semi-sweet and roasted malts, oddly enough a bit of salt, smoked trout, espresso, some light bourbon and oak, things are a bit muted overall. Moderate carbonation, slightly strange body which is both light and medium in nature (might be the affect of the bourbon aging), mild sweetness that disappears quickly to leave more of a bitter taste that becomes dry, leaving some cocoa, malts, peat and espresso.
