superspak (4997) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2016
375 ml bottle into snifter, best before 12/10/2019. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, fudge, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, dark bread, licorice, molasses, dark fruit, and roast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, bourbon barrel, and moderate fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, fudge, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, and dark bread; with light licorice, molasses, dark fruit, and roast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate coffee/roast bitterness and bourbon/oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, fudge, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, dark bread, and roast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, bourbon barrel, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great roasted malt bitter/sweet and bourbon/oak spiciness balance; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness as well. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly slick/sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish; with zero barrel booziness. Overall this is a fantastic barrel aged imperial coffee stout! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, bourbon barrel, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

alteregoo (1145) - POLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Piana obfita, sycząca, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z minimalnym brązową poświatą na dnie szkła. Aromat przyjemnie waniliowy, beczkowy, słodki, do tego kawa, czekolada, praliny, cola... W smaku intensywnie słodkie, waniliowe, likierowe, oczywiście sporo czekolady, kawy, karmelu oraz wysokiej, palonej goryczki. Długie, beczkowo tytoniowe posmaki. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, treściwe, dość gęste, wyklejające. Alkohol fajnie wkomponowany w wysmakowaną całość.
Nie wiem jak to się stało, ale wersja BBA jest mocniej spieniona, gęstsza i oczywiście słodsza od podstawowej, nieleżakowanej. Pięknie czuć walory beczki po bourbonie na tle palono czekoladowo kawowej podstawy.

Tognetta (803) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 19, 2016
Totalmente negra turva, espuma marrom de boa formação e pouca/média persistência. Aroma mais maltado, amadeirado e adocicado que a versão original, álcool continua facilmente perceptível, mais chocolate do que café, leve defumado, complexa. Paladar de dulçor e álcool intensos, amargor chega no segundo plano. Corpo licoroso e baixa carbonatação. Final de longa persistência em geral prevalescendo o álcool/bourbon e malte, não tem equilíbrio, esperava mais.
