COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our award winning Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The result blew us away. The dark chocolate malt yields a milk chocolate flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla flavor from the barrel. The bourbon aroma adds the finishing touch.
2013 vintage: 10.9% abv, 58 IBU

stumpyiliz (220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pour is thin bodied with very little to no head. Aromas of bourbon vanilla and chocolate. Tastes along the same line. Unfortunately the barrel aging has thinned the beer compared to normal siberian night. Whiskey notes are very dry and lacking in the full body taste. Simetimes too much time in the barrel is not the way to go. Maybe if they used freshly drained barrels the taste would better suit this beer.

Pours opaque black with a nice lasting tan head. Aromas of licorice and even some banana bread. Roasted malty sweetness on the tongue which lingers. bourbon influence is there but not boozy. Very tasty!

Erzengel (9618) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Woody Bourbon nose. The beer starts fresh and woody. Intense woody, a bit too much woody bourbon, not too round. A bit sweetish with not too much depth - the wood takes a bit of the original aroma away. Very sad.

Bottle shared with Erzengel! A black beer with a mid-sized most good lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet dark malt, sweet wood, bourbon. Taste of sweet bourbon malt, oak, liquorice, too sweet.

This was simply excellent. Bottle, probably less than a year old. Everything one could want from a ba stout, roast flavors mixed with barrel notes and flavor lingers throughout the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It's a stout that's wet and cold in a glass. 9oz pour at king's table. I don't know what else to type here ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz foil dressed bottle, sent over by prufrockstar. Huge thanks for this one my friend! You supplied quite the beer for my celebratory evening, and for that, I owe you! What an incredible beer this is. Listed at 10.9% Pours a jet black, with a thin, but lasting tan foam head. A sweet chocolate heavy aroma, some pretty strong whiskey impressions. Flavor remains on the chocolate side, and has much more whiskey flavor, than overall booziness. A warming finish, but still without being boozy. Thick body, chocolate, wood, and soft vanilla notes. An amazing imperial to say the least. Loved it.
