3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours viscous very dark brown with thin brown head that fades rapidly to a ring. Coats the glass well. Aroma dark fruits, molasses and booze. Taste raisins, dark fruits, vinous notes, molasses, chocolate, vanilla and booze. Alcohol very forward. Palate thick. Finish tiny bit of roast with alcohol burn
Kind of reminded me of Averyís The Beast with less dark fruits and more bourbon. Not a traditional imperial stout thatís for sure.

Black as night with a thin tan head. Deep, layered nose with black currant, chocolate and cigar box. Full bodied with dark, bitter chocolate, bourbon notes and roasted malts. Low carbonation, soft mouthfeel which is a lovely contrast for such a big beer. Like sipping top end whiskey, smooth and delicious.

Been wanting to try this bad boy ever since I heard of it.
Pour pitch black, with a small creamy mocha-brown head... Looks freaking terrifying!!
Aroma is packed of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, coconut, bourbon, wood, bourbon/rum - soaked dark fruits, dates, raisins, licorice. This shit really is delicious. Holy cow!!
The taste is pretty sweet, with a slightly bitter and boozy aftertaste, which suits this beer very well.
Medium and rather oily bodied, with a lively carbonation. Slight heat in the throat when swallowed. This shit sure is tasty, and Iíd always be iso more!!
Thanks to Master Scott for sending me this SOB!!

Hot add bourbon chocolate cookie aroma. Woof. Black with brown head. Taste is hot and boozy. Chocolate like crazy with some dark fruit. Slightly grape. This beer kicks dicks.

Rich, deeply roasted malt supports the smooth bourbon barrels. Silky as hell, highly refined; plenty of booze, though it integrates seamlessly into the flavor profile. Goddamn this stuff is good.

poured at exactly 55 degrees. Thick, roasted black color, with about one finger of chocolate head. Amazing aroma. Velvety oatmeal, deep chocolate and coffee, booze, oak and vanilla are all present. Extremely thick, but surprisingly smooth. Tons of bourbon, and deep strong chocolate and coffee. this is amazing. Finishing burn of alcohol that lasts. Iíll have to grab a few more bottles to age.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 Thanks, Adam Jackson, you definitely know how to fuck me up. Pours nighttime black with a khaki head that demonstrates why itís boss (havenít used *tagline* "khaki" in awhile). Smells of bitter chocolate, an intense hop presence, charcoal, caramel and ginger. Very well hidden but still burns by swallow. Tastes of chocolate malt, coffee dregs, oak, microwave-burnt oatmeal and caramel at swallow. Good night.

Bottle....going on a year old. Pours an opaque brown with no head and lots of legs. The aroma is a potent blast of bourbon, raisins, light vanilla, deep roasted malt, soy. The flavor is sweet but salty with more umami, some spice, lots of wood, bourbon. Texture is sticky and full but gritty with alcohol and wood. Quite intense but well balanced all the same. Great bourbon stout!

Sample from bottle @ Fobab. This is a great stout. Big bourbon notes lots of dark malt flavor. Great balance between the two. Huge dark strong beer but still somehow very drinkable and incredibly smooth.
