Bouteille: Literally black, big creamy tanned head; moderate to solid nose of vanilla and roasted malt plus bitter chocolate and traces of chocolate cakes; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and very soft; vanilla, wood, chocolate and caramel in the smooth finish. A gorgeous liquid chocolate cake…

Dark black pour creamy off white lacing head. Aroma is toasty. Taste is silk smooth with a touch of bourbon and chocolate. Alcohol bourbon taste lives on palate.

Bottle from Beer Frog Spring Hill. Pours a stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some chocolate, some boozy whiskey, some earth, and some almost cola flavor. Flavor hits with chocolate, soda, some boozy bourbon, and a hint of earth. Light in body and lingering boozy bourbon into the finish.

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.

Bottle, thanks vjohans.
Pours black with a tan head.
Taste chocolate, rosted malts, some licorice and bourbon. A bit too thin for all taste.

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.
