Provsmak på good beer nyc. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Mustig chokladdoft. Lite stickig kolsyra med rejäl bourbon och chokladsmak. trapped (3150) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to Jsquire. Inky black with small foamy beige head with great endurance, mocha aroma, low carbonation, milky chocolate taste with strong whisky overtones, full body, long mocha finish with whisky aftertaste. Great imperial stout, with a tad too much whisky influence. Ed5388 (3480) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2015
12oz gold foil topped bottle from trade. Aroma of strong bourbon, chocolate malts, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is a little thin. Notes of black malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, oak, newspaper, and caramel. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter.
3.75 A: Black color. One finger of frothy/creamy light brown head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Big leather from the bourbon stands out the most. Roastiness, dark chocolate, a touch of char, and molasses. Melon, oak, and vanilla from the barrel.
3.75 T: Taste mirrors the nose closely. Roast, dark chocolate, molasses. Again there’s lots of leather. Oak and vanilla are stronger in the taste. Touch of ashy char to round things out.
3.75 M: Lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth.
3.75 D: Good well rounded beer.
