Bottle pour from alexsdad06. Color dark brown. Nose pure bourbon. Initial flavor all bourbon. After the alcohol I get some aftertaste of spice, caramel, and maybe vanilla. Tastes like hoppy bourbon.

Bottle sealed with bomb proof wax. Pour has a muddy brown color with very little head and a still look. Aroma has rich malt, oak, bourbon, and dark fruit. Mouth feel is full but the carbonation is almost nonexistent. Flavor has loads of barrels, bourbon, heavy malts, and sweetness.

Thanks to Tmac220 for shaing a bottle with me! Bottle. Poured a dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon with a bit of sweet fruit and perhaps a touch of malt. The flavor followed the aroma, but in my opinion was fairly dominated by the bourbon. It was definitely good, but I liked the BB Impy much better.

12oz at my place with group. Aroma is bourbon, oak barley. Taste is bourbon and more bourbon, malt. Finish is long bourbon.

12oz bottle from a trade some time ago, has red wax on it that took forever to chip off, not sure what year it is, pours a dark murky brown with practically no head at all, not really pleasant looking, aroma is of pretty much straight bourbon and oak with nothing much else, maybe a little bit of dark fruit and malt, but geez, boozy, the flavor has a huge bourbon and oak front end with a finish of malt and caramel, sweet but more hot and boozy than anything, thick mouthfeel, split this 12oz bottle and it was still a chore to finish, meh.

Bottle. Clear light brown/amber pour with a fleeting white head. Caramel aromas. Some bitterness, mild booze, and muted caramel notes. Bland and boring with a below average mouthfeel and body.

Thanks Scott! Dark caramel color, minimal head/lace. Smells of booze, oak, oxidation, and bourbon. Thin; needs way more body. Decent taste I guess; doesn't resonate. Not bad, but def forgettable.
