3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shows a pitch black body with virtually no head. Nose has a really heavy dose of bourbon with a somewhat unpleasant note. The taste is fairly sweet with a mellow, mildly bitter finish. Medium carbonation and hefty palate. The bourbon barrel aging really pushes through on the nose and is a bit overwhelming.

Dark almost black, brown head.
Aroma coffee, sour oak and bourbon.
Taste licorice, bitter, not so sweet, alcoholic taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon and wood. Taste is again mostly bourbon and wood. Very little beer taste there. This is decidedly not an ’imperial stout’. I won’t get this one again. Disappointing.

Bottle. Closer to a porter than a stout, I thought. Nice enough though; the bourbon flavour stops short of being overpowering.

This is a very smooth stout that has a soft variation of after tastes. It is easy to drink both with a meal or all by itself.
