A rich and flavorful RIS, the barrel attributes don’t overwhelm the stout but compliment it, as it should. Plenty of toasted malts with coffee, touches of chocolate and licorice. The barrel gives it vanilla and a touch of drying woodiness. Overall it’s very nice.
Idiosynkrasie (7843) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2017
750ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, mostly lasting, well lacing, tan head. Whiskey aroma, notes of leather, oak, vanilla, chocolately dark malty background. Taste is slightly sweet, chocolately dark malty, hints of treacle, integrated, mild, slightly dry whiskey notes of oak, vanilla, leather; relatively light body, dangerously drinkable, in no way tacky palate. Not overly complex, rather focussed, harmonious and balanced. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2016
12,000 beers and no end in sight. Sample from 2012 and 2011 bottles at the "Black Friday 02" tasting on 11/25/2016. Black pour with a medium foamy khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, oak and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with flavors of charred malt, oaky bourbon and bittersweet chocolate. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Good beer all around. TimE (6069) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2016
pitch black color. Big vanilla bean, dark chocolate molasses, oak and bourbon in the nose. Full on. Tons of dark chocolate, treacles, bourbon, oak, slightly sour mouth. So well integrated and put together. Fantastic lingering dark chocolate oak and bourbon finish. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Whiskey, oak, chocolate, vanilla, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied and thick. Finishes with whiskey and plenty of chocolate notes. jbruner (5121) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves light lace. Aroma of woody tannins, dark chocolate, deep roast, and a hint of soy. Taste follows, drop the soy and add some sweet chocolate and vanilla, earthy middle. Booze is well hidden, thick and viscous, solid beer.
