Saeglopur (1972) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 25, 2017
375 ml bottle from Beergium, bottled 10.25.16
Black body, with a small, dissipating, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of bourbon, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, dried fruits, some coffee, some liquorice.
Tastes quite similar, with some more tobacco, wood, some booze.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smooth, medium roasty, warming, astringent, wooden, with tobacco, liquorice, bourbon, cocoa powder, some fruits.

Tasty. Very complex and rich, with the bourbon notes greatly integrated, leaving room for diverse dark malts. Quite boozy though and also a bit too much carbonated for my taste. Overall still a lovely, comfortable sipper how it should be.

0,375l bottle at home. Bottled 03.22.2016. 12% ABV. black color, small coffee colored head. smells bourbon, nutty, marzipan, milky, bitter chocolate, earthy, licorice, coconut, very lovely smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes bourbon, coconut, bitter chocolate, earthy, nice wood notes, nutty, marzipan, light dried fruits, bit peppery, some berry notes, nice cinnamon. finishes rather smooth with light alcohol and some roast notes with marzipan, nuts and bitter chocolate. very smooth drinking experience, great balance. I actually prefer it a bit better when its colder but overall its very good stuff. alcohol is just a tad noticeable (once it warms especially).

Pours a dark brown with a beige rim sitting on top that leaves some lacing. Nose is of chocolate, fudge, vanilla and spices. Taste is more chocolate and chili-like spices. Not too hot/boozy. Body is full and carbonation moderate. A bit too spicy perhaps but otherwise really nice.

heman (870) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Aromat: suszone owoce, początkowo bardzo kojarzy się z porto, gorzka czekolada, lekko kwaśne nuty winne, a w tle wanilia, kokos i powiew alkoholu. W smaku piwo jest pełne, gęste i wytrawne. Gorzka czekolada, ponownie pojawiają się suszone owoce w stylu porto, a zaraz za tym wytrawne nuty popiołowe. Po przełknięciu po gardle rozlewa się przyjemna beczkowa wanilia i nuta kokosa - nie jakaś dominująca, ale fajnie dopełniająca trunek. Goryczka jest średnio-wysoka, kakaowa. Alkohol wyczuwalny i rozgrzewający, ale szlachetny z bourbon-ową nutą, podnoszący degustacyjną rangę trunku.

Style et rsum: Imperial stout bourbon.

Note: 7+/10

SlovakSniper (5394) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
Merci rodenbach99 pour cette belle dgustation! Un liquide qui est plaisant pour mon il de lynx. Des armes de chocolat et de bourbon fruit avec quelques nuances de fume/notes rties. Bien intressant en dbut de dgustation mais en perte defficacit lorsque le temps file. Les saveurs de bourbon dominent lgrement ltendu des malts. Il aurait t souhaitable que les malts soient plus riches. En bouche, la texture nest pas paisse ni mince. La finale est modrment sche et un peu chaude. Facile boire. Ceci dit, je mattendais un petit +.
