Taster with lunch. Bitter, boozy, lots of body. Sweet figs add nicely, loads of coffee, even raisins shine through lightly.

Bottled 06-01-17. Interesting. Supersmooth, lots of caramelly, chocolaty sweetness, bitterish aftertaste, slight spicy rye-kick. I like it!

Bottled 26-02-2016. Salt, bourbon, smoked and smthwine-ish are all there, but the imperial saison must have run off. Very flakey, almost like drinking a snow globe. Flavorwise: salty! Followed by bourbon, biiig boozy note, warming, rich and malty sweet.

Pretty bitter, easy drinking, some roast. Not much apple, neither as fruit nor as juice. Needs more sweetness, body or actually apple. Bit disappointing, one of those failed Borefts recipes that aren't undrinkable, but just a waste.

Unfortunately well past its prime. Some maltyness, but most of the hop freshness has gone. Still bitter.

Bottled 17-08-2015. BB 17/8/16. Despite its age explosively hoppy. Dense and creamy. Heavy bitter, resiny, lingering bitter aftertaste. Wow.

Bottled 10-05-2016. Lots of caramelly sweetness, yet also fairly bitter. Grassy hoppyness. Quite dense, lots of thick foam. Nice stuff!

Good stuff, but not sure if it fully works. Esra on its own I love because of the thick, salty, umami flavor profile. Here the bourbon overpowers, lots of barrel, woody, buttery. Now it's just another very good BBA stout/porter.

Bottled 01-04-2015, but definitely not a joke. Bottle #438. Good head of foam, smells fruity and vinous. Tastes super vinous, sweet, woody and fruity. Underneath a rich, porter. Soft, smooth, raisins. Hint of peat? Stunning.
