COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A play on Josh’s name, this Russian imperial stout is aged in four different types of bourbon barrels (Old Fitzgerald, Old Forester, Elijah Craig, and Evan Williams), then blended for the resulting thick and dark brew. If you had a chance to taste Alderaan, this is the aged version.

Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Aroma isn’t strong on barrel. Flavor isn’t at first but ends strong on the carmel vanilla and even oak astringent flavor. A very nice oak aged beer. But lots of carbonation which is surprising. On tap.

ciocanelu (2851) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 10, 2017
Black color with tan head. Aroma has some astringent bourbon, slightly boozy with some burnt sugar. Taste starts with quite harsh whiskey, booze, sweet malt and some dark fruits. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Overall it has some nice flavors but quite boozy and not too easy to drink.

mariuspoenari (2954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Bottle shared at a tasting. Pitch black pour with a tan head, slow to rise to the surface. Notes of bourbon, tons of vanilla, chocolate, toasted caramel, whiskey, some burnt rubber, light coconut and quite a bit of alcohol. After a few sips, it is quite difficult to drink.
