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.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 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.

Bottle to snifter.

Pours nearly black with amber hues on edges. A healthy fine bubble amber head slowly returned to a frothy rim and slight film. The smell is tons of bourbon and dark roasted malts. This beer is very fragrant and volatile. Im not getting much oak in the nose but oak and tannins certainly come through in the taste. The strong bourbon smell is muted in the taste, giving way to roasted malts and a little coffee and coco. Minor notes of marshmallows, vanilla, and pecans are present. This ale is full bodied with moderate carbonation and low viscosity. Not bad. If you highly enjoy ba stouts then you should try this. I would likely pass next time but I enjoyed this. It doesn't come close to the big boys of ba stouts produced in the states.

Picked up at Julio's a while back. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice deep dark brown almost black with a thin quarter inch mocha head that fades to leave a thin thin blanket. Not much for lacing, but, solid for ABV.

S - Aroma is fairly week not much chocolate (actually none), some nice honey sweetness and faint barrel. Solid amount of alcohol too.

T - Taste is slightly acrid/bitter. Not much chocolate, some roasted malts, coffee, honey sweetness, bourbon heat. Really could use some chocolate to round things out here.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty solid. Creamy and silky, not much booze. Quite nice actually.

O - Overall, this had potential to be pretty good. Its not though. Its okay, the honey and bourbon and roast work nicely with the coffee. At the price though I would like more bang for the buck. At a dollar an ounce or so I expected MUCH more.

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.
