Bouteille. Robe noire. Nez de café frais, de grain torréfié et de bois avec une pointe d’alcool. Bouche crémeuse où s’harmonise les notes du nez et les saveurs douces du caramel et de la vanille. Finale sèche , terreuse et marquée par le fut de bourbon. Une légère acidité vient clore la dégustation. Une stout barrel age qui s’exprime pleinement mais sans brutalité.

Bottle at home. My lords. Black with a red hint through the light. Dark brown head that soon cleared. Aroma of smoke and burnt metal, coffee beans. Hints of coffee, beef, dark caramel malts. Semi carbonated, lively at first but then settled. Georgous. witthatsbier (580) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2015

Aroma is pepper and dry malt

overall a very different stout TimE (6074) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2015
Pitch black color. Thin dark brown head. I love the unique Buffalo Trace bourbon in the nose, i wish more breweries used these barrels. Intense molasses, rich velvety dark chocolate, licorice and charcoal notes. Slightly salty. Very low carbonation. In fact too low to the point of being next to flat. Really loses points on the mouth feel. Slightly sweet. Mouth is much more linear than the nose with lots of bourbon, dark chocolate and lactose notes. Finishes mildly sweet with bourbon and dark chocolate with lactose notes, but a bit lifeless. So much potential. olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
