Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Growler at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Black topped with a moderate tan swirl. Nose is roast malt, sweet chocolate tunes, light charr, malt, subtle oak. Taste comprises chocolate, spice, liquorice, dark fruit rinds, toffee fudge. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, subtle whisky notes in the close. Decent easy drinking BA impy but not blowing me away.

Ferris (7070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle - Chocolate, graham cracker, coconut and vanilla. Deep jet black brown with a decent brown head. Sweet, coconut, vanilla, bit of whisky and a long viscous finish. Really nice.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Growler: Thanks to mikem409. Oily & black like squid’s ink, with a small, deep-tan head that builds up to a quarter-inch & recedes into nothing quickly. Rich & sweet aroma with chocolate fudge cake, whiskey laced oak, cinnamon, barrel induced vanillin, & a lot of dark fruits covered in brown sugar; prunes, raisins, figs. Fudgy, boozy, sweet. Flavor follows the heavy fudge & bittersweet chocolate profile up front with undertones of cinnamon bun, tart currants, dates, caramel, woody coconut, vanilla, whiskey, figs, & anise. Medium-heavy body with a slightly oily mouth feel. Did not blow me away as I expected, but still a really good stout nonetheless. I prefer RareR & well as some of the Nooner barrel treatments.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Growler during RBWG 2015. Pours oily black with a foamy tan head. The aroma has lots of hard roast, light smoke, baking cocoa, some vanilla. Medium to big sweet flavor with some dark fruits, oily chocolate, roast, scorched earth, burnt wood. Full bodied, soft, oily and chewy. Lightly warming on the finish with plenty of gooey chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, raisins, leather. Heavy duty stuff but certainly very good.

kermis (6629) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle enjoyed quietly at home as a nightcap after Bruges beer festival weekend. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of rich dark chocolate, molasses, light smooth whiskey notes, wood, vanilla, dark fruit notes, leather and fudge. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Lovely!

ICEatALAMO (1099) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. The pour is dark with rim head. The aroma is bourbon and dark fruits. The taste is a mouthful. A little light upfront, but then the bourbon comes through nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Via trade with Ataraxia. The aroma is nice, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla. The appearance is deep black, oily, deep tan head. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, molasses, licorice. The booze comes in more as you hold it in your mouth. Thick in nobody, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is roasty, lighter in bourbon than you would expect. The roast only shows here. This is an expertly crafted impy stout.
