Potężny Bourbon,wanilia, czekolada, jakieś nuty anyżu, cynamonu... Słodkie, wyklejające, potężne, niesamowicie beczkowe i bogate, wybitny Imperial Stout.

Rami Rami is drinking a Black Tuesday (2015) by The Bruery at Chmielarnia Marszałkowska O kierwa. Ale fajnie beczka, wanilia, czeko, duzo ciala, lepkie, alko czuc fajnie, kiepsko sie opisuje wyjebistosc, bo lepsze niz opis

warto odstawic w szkle, zeby sie otworzylo... ale uwaga: nie za dlugo, bo przesadzenie powoduje zmniejszenie intensywnosci aromatow i troche wieksze wyjscie alko

A massive and vinous brew, which communicates its bourbon barrel age over the entirety of its creamy texture. Dark as night, with presence of raisin and dark plum fruit that leads into spicy bourbon, marshmallow and toffee. Lingers incredibly long with barrel spice lingering. Insane heat covered up well.

Thanks kathouse. You rock. Pours a dark chestnut brown. Basically no head. Then again I cant imagine any beer at 20% ABV would have a lot of head. Aromas of toasted nuts, coconut, dark chocolate, hot bourbon. Flavours of molasses, milk chocolate, bourbon, coconut, booze. Not crazy hot on the finish. Oxidisation makes it drink like a sherry. Very good.

Zwart als de nacht. Crmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van koffie, (pure) chocolade, hazelnoten. Vol en halfzwaar van smaak. Lange plakkerige zoetige afdronk. Alcohol goed weggestopt. Gevaarlijk maar hl lekker bier.

GTAEgeek (2053) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Sampled from a bottle outside Zwanze Day. Pours black, with a small, tan ring. The nose is immense bourbon and bakers chocolate, with some mild coffee, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and molasses. Very sweet, with a bit of roasty bitterness. Very heavy body, creamy, sticky, and thick. This is an experience, but theres a surprising lack of booziness and warming.

A lovely bartender just gave me a free sample of this. Pours ink black with no head. Aroma is boozy, with caramel and vanilla. Taste has a lot of woody booze, but its smooth not overwhelming. Lots of vanilla notes to balance the alcohol. Just a bit of bubbly carbonation. Lingering oak and vanilla. Wonderful.

750ml bottle 2013 vintage popped September 2016. Pours straight motor oil with no head and a small ring of bubbles. Nose and taste are super sweet and rich, gooey melted fudge, vanilla, chocolate cake, did I mention sweet? Some dark fruity plum and faint raisin, brown sugar and caramel, tootsie roll. Definitely boozy and sticky on the finish but hides the % fairly well in the nose and early palate, or perhaps its mellowed out after 3 years. Not something I could drink often. Pretty tasty stuff regardless.
