COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel Room Collection V IBS is our imperialized version of our Breakfast of Champions aged 20 months in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels. Brewed with copious amounts of dark and roasted malts, this is liquid breakfast in your mug- we used an insane amount of locally roasted coffee, Ghanaian cocoa nibs, and local maple syrup rounded by oak and packing a bourbon punch to deliver a beer fitting to start your day off with. You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning, right?

Aromat jest mega - dużo czekolady deserowej i mlecznej z ciemnymi owocami, dalej burbon, wanilia.
W smaku bardzo podobnie, dodatkowo więcej beczki, drewniana cierpkość, kawa, wiśnie i burbon. Umiarkowanie słodko, alkoholu brak. Ciało jest oleiste.
Kapitalny RIS.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 (Thank you!) Sampled draft @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. Black, zero head. Nose is nice heavy boozy walnut vanilla, bourbon hazelnut. Taste is upfront weird plastic, strange boozy, hazelnut, vanilla, bit messy, chocolate, nuts,… Plastic syrup body. Overall good stuff but with messy qualities like the plastic, good but imperfect, still quite a bit better than most Voodoo beers tried. Still I do not get the hype.

thnx to 90! Pours black indeed! very little ring of mocha colored head. Smell is very full, medium-high intensity, thick, roasted malts, tad sweet, cocoa, even seems a bit lactic, almost, trough that cocoa. No real maple here, perhaps a tad of coffee. Smells a bit like rye as well ? bourbon and oak have blended in quite good, can be recognized though. Taste is very full, intense roasty, tad sweet, the taste shows light amounts of maple. Roasty, some coffee. The cocoa shows, but it isn't as sweet as I had expected. the barrel is more in the background, including it's bourbon notes which are recognized, but not overpowering. quite a nice impy, Thick body, but no extremes here. low carbo.

From notes. Enjoyed at a share up at Huffman Lake with some good dudes the weekend of September 30 through October 01. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a dark black color with a thick cap of dark brown head that falls down slowly, leaving a decent bit of lace behind. The aroma is really solid. There is a big bourbon to it right up front with a coffee and chocolate fudge backing it up. There is a vanilla and oak presence with a lovely fudgy alcohol burn. The flavor is a little toned down on the bourbon, but the fudginess and the vanilla and oak just resound throughout. This is awesome. The coffee is big, and there’s a bitterness building of dark chocolate. The mouth feel is heavy medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly bitter chocolate and lovely bourbon on the finish. Holy shit this is good. 8 4 9 4 16
