Poured from a 375mL bottle into a brandy snifter.

A: Full finger of mocha head tops a completely opaque black head.

S: Fruit and booze and fruit and chocolate. What a scent! Vanilla and plum.

T: A boozy, bourbon-y, sort of stout. Lighter and sweeter than expected. More than a hint of fruit (tart and earthy). Vanilla. Has the oak added complexity here? It's hard to tell.

M: How luxurious! How smooth, how ensorcelling, how superlative. The honey adds the requisite weight.

O: An incredible imperial stout from a pair of incredible breweries. Highly recommended. Would have again.

375mL bottle

I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-
sensitive.

APPEARANCE : Pitch black on pour with dark brown hue. Head is mocha, more than medium sized on pour, goes back down at a leisurely pace leaving some tough looking lacing.

SMELL : First nose is coffee, chocolate and some smoke with a herbal hop side. Second nose pushes the hop profile aside and really amplifies on the mocha chocolate side. Some honey starts to come out. Third nose is all about the honey : black roasted honey. Very nice twist on the too often same-as-usual approach on the stout style.

TASTE : This stuff shines on the palate. The flavours are full and well layered : most of the roasted-malt-related tastes are toned down, giving much of the room to the wild honey and the bourbon barrel. Very well done.

MOUTHFEEL : Thick but not overpowering. Definitely what I want in this kind of stout. The carbonation makes everything easier to handle. I'm a big fan of this almost-syrupy texture in stouts and this brew nails it hands down.

OVERALL : Another very fine product from To Øl. Kudos as well to Omnipollo. I've got a case of 12 of these bad boys and damn am I glad I do. This is seriously good stuff. I don't understand the 86% rating this brew got. Since it's only stated in Danish on the bottle, maybe not everyone was aware that this was brewed with wild honey and aged in bourbon barrels? The honey side is definitely an interesting side of this brew. I'm really digging this.

Bottle. Aroma is chocolate, booze, oak, and faint herbal hops. Appearance is black with a thin tan head. Good lacing. Taste is roasted barley, burnt toast, honey, oak, and booze. Full body with low carbonation. Overall rich, complex, and very good. A little warm so some ageing might be good.

Pours inky black in color with deep tan head that held fairly well before fading into a medium collar and wispy head. Aroma is mostly deeply roasted malts, some sweetness either from the bourbon barrels or the honey, oddly indistinct sweetness. I also get some dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is about the same, with some toasted oats coming through. Good full body, silty mouthfeel, and low carbonation.

4.19/5  rDev +7.7%

Appearance – Pitch black, somewhat syrupy with a dark chocolaty foamy head. Very nice lacing initially, then the lacing is almost non existent as the head fades.

Smell – Malty, with honey and molasses.

Taste – Malty with a slight bitterness offset by honey.

Mouthfeel – This beer felt a bit watery; I think this style needs a little more alcohol and carbonation. Easy to drink, without much aftertaste.

Drinkability – Easy drinking for 11.2%abv, but I think it needs more alcohol/carbonation.

4.06/5  rDev +4.4%

Corked and caged 375mL (12.7oz) bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 11.99. No bottling date. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours cola black with a finger and a half light mocha hued head. Very little retention and very little lace.

Aromas of roast malts, dark cocoa, caramel and barrel. Sweetens nicely as it warms up.

Nice bold, roasty flavors. Bitter dark chocolate, sweet bourbon, roasted malt, burnt caramel, coffee, light vanilla, faint honey and a little booze. A pretty solid blend of flavors that keeps the alcohol in check.

Oily medium thick feel with light carbonation. Bitter cocoa and mild bourbon finish.

A well made and enjoyable stout. Not quite as complex as anticipated and priced just beyond repeat purchase but it was certainly worth the try.

4.04/5  rDev +3.9%

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a thin light brown head that dissipates to a ring around the glass, leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of bourbon, dark toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor of toasted, lightly charred malt, cooked caramel, light chocolate and hints of coffee. Finish is roasty, lightly charred with some lingering hop bitterness. Medium to heavy bodied. A well made roasty, hopped imperial stout with an interesting mild caramel candy flavor hidden in the malt. The finish is a bit harsh at first, but mellows out as the glass is emptied. The bourbon is sadly not as prominent in the taste as in the aroma, but adds a little character to the overall dark flavor.
