I got this beer at the Zeebra Extreme Beerfestival in Holland on may 4th 2013. Zeebra was held for the first time with lots of very very very great beers like this one. As a matter of fact the normal version of this beer was also there....

This one was poured in a Zeebra glass, a small tasting glass. I did not really know what to expect from this beer but the expectation were higher than the taste i got.

No head and no carbonation. Just a normal Imperial stout where i made the remark that this is good one for the beginners in this BA style. Not bad but i have had way better ones....

750ml, 2012 Vintage
5oz mini snifter

A: Pours our a really deep dark black. Basically no light getting through, but being outside and holding up to the light I do see some reddish hues. Thin layer of tan head. Sticky lacing is starting to left on the glass.

S: Woah, this nose is unreal. Mocha. Chocolate fudge. Vanilla. Oak. Roast coffee. Just epic stuff here.

T: Big Coffee up front. Then a beautiful blend of vanilla and barrel. Chocolate fudge goodness. The bourbon booze is blended in so nicely. Really no harsh notes, just some warming in the back of the throat. Even the coffee is blended superbly. Long finish with flavors dancing on the tongue.

M: Full bodied.

This is right up there for me with some of the best I have had.
