A 330ml bottle, bottled on 12th September 2017 and a best before date of September 2022. Poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Black in colour with pretty much no head and no lacing.

Aroma: Nice bourbon, vanilla and liquorice with chocolate, cocoa, roasty malts and alcohol in the background along with hints of oak.

Taste: Lightly sweet beginning with bourbon, vanilla, raisins and dried dark fruits followed by a light roast, chocolate and cacao.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with low carbonation and a lightly boozy finish.

Overall: A very nice RIS with great bourbon flavours coming through. Body could have been heavier, but despite this, it was still very good.

The bourbon-barrel version of one of my favorite imperial stouts from Spain. Intense aroma of chocolate, raw cocoa beans and coffee. Full barrel flavor, woodsy, sharp around the edges.

Brown butter finish that stays in the mouth for quite a while. Black olive, charred Mediterranean forest.

Very good looks and excellent drinkability for a 13% beast. The mouthfeel could be thicker, but it doesn't hurt this stunning barrel-aged brew from Spain. Top notch!
