Egy savanyú főzet után vágtam bele az ital elfogyasztásába, s mintha hazaértem volna, csapott meg a bourbon-köntösbe burkolózott fekete, szójaszószos, vaníliás aromák fuvallata. Kinézetre majdhogynem tökéletes, sötét, akár az éjszaka, bézs habja ragacsos, krémes lenyomatot hagy a pohár falán, ebből csakis jó dolog sülhet ki. A test kissé eleven és éles, önmagában talán nem a legfajsúlyosabb darab az imperial stoutok világában, a whisky-s érlelés azonban csakúgy, mint máskor, itt is csodákat művelt, egyfajta másodlagos mondanivalóval, újabb rétegekkel, plusz tartalommal ruházza fel az italt. Kókuszkrémes, vaníliafagylaltos, prémium étcsokoládés zamatok, némi negrós, édesgyökeres hangulat, sima és bársonyos karakter. Szirupos malátafolyam vonalaival indít, melyhez egy markáns, kesernyés zárás társul, az odáig vezető út azonban ízletes, kellően intenzív, néhol talán túlságosan is élénk, de mindenképpen tartalmas kortyokkal van kikövezve. Remek imperial stout.

So on Thanksgiving of 2016 Jesse and I had a stout beer tasting. This was one of six. Deep dark pour. Aroma of chocolate, slight bourbon. Taste was smooth, not too much raisin. Was a good beer, but landed at four or five. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This is one of those twenty five. 12oz bottle. Black bodied, tanned top. Aroma and taste were of a good quality chocolate bar drizzled with a shot of bourbon: now dip it in some coconut milk and float a vanilla pod or two on the top. Loved it.

Bottle @ Rich’s 7k tasting. Pours very dark, tan head. Big chocolate cake and bourbon aroma, continuing to taste. Exceptionally well balanced with some coffee and light coconut and vanilla notes. Could’ve polished off a bottle of this easy.
