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.

Habanero (4639) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2017
Pours dark deep brown close to black with an average beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some toffee. Sweet flavor that ends up being slightly more dry with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. A very nice Impy indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Gusher. Huge fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is strange sour-ish mineraly, bloodlike minerals, grass, minerals, alcohol, dark malts, mild bourbon, weeds, bark. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish mineraly, weeds, minerals, bark, oak, mild bourbon, medicine, booze, dark malts, grass. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly harsh medical mouthfeel. So disappointing...

pictoman (1084) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2017
Poured from the tap. Dark black with tan head. Soy and leather with hints of roast malt, mild alcohol. Pretty lacklustre to be honest.

Draft at Churchkey from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, oak, dark fruit, hints of caramel, some vanilla, just a touch thin.

4.2
Bule (2137) - California, USA - MAR 14, 2017
750ml bottle of 2016 Release. Pours a black color with a lot of frothy head. Heavy on the bourbon. Very dry. Nice hop balance.

4.1
AleRider78 (1046) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
750ml bottle from Marché Omni. Pours a big thick frothy beige head and has a dark murky brown appearance. Some nice sticky lacing. Aromas are a little bit woodsy, barley malts, toasted malts, vanilla. Flavours are mostly roasted malts, hints of chocolate, vanilla, a little bit of sweetness. Alcohol is fairly noticeable, coming from some whisky/bourbon barrels and it shows. It’s still very easy to drink, has a smooth and slick mouthfeel. Slight bitterness on the palate towards the finish. Exceptional brew, well done and well balanced as well. Only complaint, a tad pricey. *note: 10%abv on this bottle.

3.8
Serapac (471) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 29, 2017
On tap, Moeder Lambic. Black, medium tan head. Aroma predominantly liquorice, hints of eucalyptus, mix of spices. Heavy body, oily, sticky texture. Taste sweet, spices - cloves, cinnamon, cardamon. Mild coffee notes.
