BOTTLE 33 CL as a gift from omhper. Almost black with faint ruby highlights, beige head. The aroma has dark toffee and dark dried fruit, raisins, but also lots of boozy rum barrel, dry white fortified wine, toasted coconut, almonds. The taste is really boozy and relatively dry - like those good Belgian super strong ales - notes of sugared alcohol infused fruit, without being too sweet. The alcohol is really there, strong, but not harsh. No strong dark malt or roasty notes - more like a dark barley wine than an impy. Like it. EerieDrinks (378) - Malmï¿½, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2017

Close to pitch black beer.omhper (26040) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2017
Aroma is brown sugar, vanilla, slight oak barrel, prunes and with hints of raisins, clove and cinnamon.
Taste is charred oak, vanilla, cinnamon, slight coffee, black pepper and an apparent alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel is semi-thin. Rather low bitterness. Low carbonation. Medium-high sweetness.
Overall: Quite a lot better than #1 (bourbon barrel), still high in alcohol in the taste but it has a good taste this time. The rum that were in the barrels seem to be of high quality and is quite tasty, even though I'm not a huge fan of rum. The real problem with both of these stouts is that the base stout isn't 'big' enough to carry 13% ABV and should really land at about 8% with a thin body like this, but as stated before, this is definitely better than #1 and is actually enjoyable!
Bottled, from Systembolage. Black with small beige head. Distinct aroma of rum and salmiak. Dry and surprisingly slender bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and raisins, rum and ouzo. Intense peppery warming finish.
