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.

Gushing w chuj. Zakażenie, ale delikatne jeszcze. W zapachu bourbon, migdały, wanilia, ogórki kiszone. W smakusporo wanilii, czekolady, pralinki i jakieś dziwne agresywne coś.

@ Beerlovers Bar. 2016 edition. Tasted Draft along side bottle (also 2016). Aroma is sweet and coffee, and lots of booze. Taste is very boozy, a tad to sweet, some sharpness there. Aftertaste is grainy. (bottle edition wins with 0.2)

kraddel (8890) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2017
Tap at beerlovers bar. 2016 edition, 10 abv. Pours very dark brown, clear. Small white head. Side by side tasted with the bottle , also 20166 vintage. Bottle was a gusher. Smell is buttery bourbon, burnt grainyness, but not in a enjoyable way to me. Taste is sharp, bit bitter, bit sweet, rather dry, very much bourbon. Out of balance to me. Weak body. Dont love this one.

rejtable (2838) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2017
2012 bottle. Pours coffee with some initial fizzy head and no lacing. Nose is tart and bourbon. Flavour of vanilla, bourbon, apple, some sour cherry. Taste med sweet med bitter. Light body lively fizzy carbonation. Probably well past best before.

Mørk og fin i fargen, lukter svakt sitrus. Lakris dominerer både smak og ettersmaken, lang og behagelig ettersmak, muligens litt for mye kullsyre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ What's Brewing 17. Pours black, with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts with dark fruits, tobacco and muscovado, as well as wooden barrels. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is dark roasted malts with fruity notes of tobacco and bourbon wooden barrels, as well as raisins and muscovado.

italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Black pour with a thick and frothy tan head and lots of rocky tan lacing ..... aroma of roasted malts, chocolate/cocoa, light coffee and vanilla ..... taste is of cocoa, coffee, roasted malts and vanilla .... smooth and roasted with lots of malt and over carbonated .... not really sure where the bourbon and oak are.... very stout ish .... some boozy bourbon and spice in the finish .... thin bodied .... has all the looks but falls short

A serious beer that you can go for when you need something good. A very tasteful experiment, a strong beer with the bourbon touch. Amazing.
