ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle (undated) at Brew Dog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Very nice appearance, with some clarity visible on the maroon/burgundy-tinted edges. Dark mahogany body and a large, tan head atop showing strong retention.
The nose is a good mix of fairly strong, but not obnoxiously-so, bourbon and wood with plentiful roast, fudge and caramel, as one would expect. Seems to be quite sweet, but again, not nearly to the point of being put-off. Alcohol-wise, its there, of course, but isnt intense or burning. There is a bit of strong ester, almost banana-like, on the very end, but this very likely could come from the bourbon just as much as it could from the yeast. Overall, a rich, rather intense nose that doesnt quite go over-the-top.
In the mouth, its thick, though not syrupy, with an almost granular quality to it. Tons of rich caramel and fudge with a slight espresso hint, transitioning quickly to a more spicy, liquor-like bourbon character. Low carbonation but ample and mostly engaging for whats there. Alcohol nicely folded in to the rich layers of bourbon, caramel, fudge and roast. Fair acidity on the end helps with balance, as well. Nice stuff, nothing really stood out to me, but its pretty under control for its size and richness.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, liquorice, slight bourbon. Taste is dark chocolate, molasses, slight coffee, roasty, ripened plum, light carbination. Lovely stuff.

DesertDevil (687) - Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle on X-mas. Sharp aroma of licorice, slightly charred plastic and burnt coffee. Any bourbon scent is very hidden. The first sip reveals notes of oxidation along with dark chocolate and a heck of a lot more alcohol than the nose suggests. Again, the bourbon notes barely emerge. Very smooth mouthfeel, which sadly is the beers best attribute. This one hardly ranks among the top 50 imperial stouts in my book.

Korcz (2239) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Słodki, bardzo czekoladowy stout z wyraźnym bourbonem, delikatną wanilią. Dużo aloholu.

ALIBALI (1283) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2016
Mal wieder verweist MIKKELLER viele Mitbrauer auf ihre Pltze. Genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt gebottled,wrd ich sagen. Wirklich elegante Aromen von Bourbonvanille, Kirschen und einem Hauch Holz besuseln die Duftempfnger. Spitze. Nur das Auge ist zuerst berrascht, deutet doch alles auf reinrassiges l hin. KOMPLETT ohne Kohlensure und demzufolge natrlich auch Schaum, mutet es beeruntypisch an. Egal, das passt 🙂. Dann FEUERWERK der Likrsorte. Zutiefst alkoholisch, schwerst dunkelrstig, fast ein bisschen roggig und ber alle Maen Lakritzbomber. Als man den Trunk schon fast abgehakt hatte, driftete er unerwartet extrem aromatisch ins LICORICE LAND. WOOOWW. Schweres Gefhrt. Wir brauchten fr unsere 0,33l Flasche ber 2 Stunden. Jeder Nipper beschftigte einen mehrere Minuten. Hot & Wonderlandstuff. 15...eigentlich.5...aus HH. Eine weitere wird in frhestens 2 Jahren gekpft ✨ . The MILES AHEAD Beer.

Rask0lnikov (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours black. No head. Chocolate, cocoa, hints of vanilla, raisins, slight hints of bourbon. Chocolate at first. Sourness of berries, chocolaty notes again. Mellow bourbon. Smooth, bourbony finish. Hints of cherry liqeur and chocolate in the aftertaste. Oily, silky texture. Full body. Very well balanced. Smooth. Incredeble and very enjoyable brew.

VastActiv (6289) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle 0.33l at home, Nivala. BBE 30.10.23 so probably vintage 2013? Colour is black with very small brownish head. Aromas and flavors: Dark chocolate, chocolate, some distant hints of licorice, bourbon and roasted malts. Pretty soft after warming.
