asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
[bottle at BJCP study session] Potent bourbony aroma with chocolate, vanilla, and strong butterscotch notes. Clear, almost opaque garnet under a tan ring. Vanilla and butterscotch flavour with some nice chocolate accents and a weak hint of phenolics. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, dark chocolate finish. Warming.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
January 6, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. 750ml bottle c/o j&k. Somewhat thin looking opaque brown-black with a smallish frothy tan head. Aroma - bourbon, oak - sweet vanilla, and something like clementine oranges - seemed more like a scotch ale in bourbon than a stout, but whatever. Taste - holy crap thatís bourbon, treacle and marzipan. Thin body, weak carbonation, starts cloyingly sweet which is knocked down by a building bitter and boozy dryness. Not my thing.

Bottle [600ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Jan. 6. Pours a very dark brown with a small lasting frothy tan head. Aroma and flavour of vanilla, wood, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and a hint of alcohol. Medium bodied. I quite liked this,. ttís not overly "barrel-aged" which I appreciate, itís more subtle and drinkable.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
[4232-20120106] 600mL bottle. Sweet stew meaty malt roast aroma has a light vanilla wood background. Hazy, red-infused black body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Sweet heavy vanilla roast continues in the flavour with just a hint of celery. Medium body. Tasty, nice to contemplate. (7/4/7+/3/15) 3.6~

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
2012-01-06. Very dark brown body with a small foamy brown head. 3+ Sweet aroma, lots of vanilla and bourbon, very mild roasty malt. 7+ Flavour is similar, rich vanilla and wood, very mild roast. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. Pretty nice, the bourbon character is overly strong for my own palate, but the overall impression is that is more well rounded than some others, and bourbon lovers should enjoy this one.

Thanks to Jerc & Mabel. Appearance: Cola body, tanned off white head. Aroma: Vanilla, barrel, whiskey, oak, alcohol, spice. Flavour: chocolate, a little weak body, vanilla, oak, spicy, a little wood in the finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beauís Mattís sleepy time Belgian imperial stout Nice deep and thick brown black robe. Malty, chocolaty and slightly nutty aroma. This 9% imperial stout surprisingly does not show how potent it is. While the alcool does not over power the strong aroma, it lets the oaky notes shiny through betraying the roots of this cask aged fine stout. not any casks mind you, a bourbon barrel no less. while this beerís bitterness shows itís face on the begining its finishes on a long caramel note very ísuaveí (or it could be the south american sun Iím under while savouring this godís nectar). This is Beauís first beer sampled from their "Greener future project" (and the others to come soon as i got alll three). Beauís was launching this project at their fifth anniversary. It garantees you their brews as they come out (iím said only 200 bottles are made per batch... buy ,ore caks guys!). BTW, you should give out some schwag with the membership!!

godofsky (274) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
600ml bottle from the brewery. sampled in tulip glass. pours a very dark, opaque brown with a beautiful moka coloured head that stays. aroma is intensely oak, with some roasted malts and caramel. not your typical imperial stout, this beer is loaded with dark fruits up front to give it that belgian twist. it becomes more grainy and roasted in the finish, with some hops to help balance everything out. medium to low carbonation, it has a nice sticky mouthfeel to it. not as thick as i would have liked, but still great. this is the best product iíve had the pleasure of tasting from beauís yet. note: when warmed to room temperature, the complexities come out banging the palate. strong notes of dark chocolate and oak suddenly appear where they werenít before.

rejtable (1379) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Love this one! Huge up front coffee, and bitter chocolate presence. Maybe some light vanilla as well. Some alcohol burn in the middle, but not in a bad way, it is pretty well covered. Then a long bitter finish on the end with the bourbon coming through. Great stuff. Reasonably light in the mouth for such a big tasting stout.

Eructoblaster (3058) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle - 600ml. Dark brown body with a thin off-white foamy head. Superb malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, vanilla, and fruity hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Complex taste carries cocoa and some woody/bourbon notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Awesome!
