Scopey (11563) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle at MadMitch76 20K tasting, thanks to the main man himself. It pours opaque darkest brown – black with a small light tan head. The nose is toasted malt, treacle, umami, raisin, plum, prune, sultana and fruit cake. The taste is toasted malts, earth, Eccles cake, big alcohol warmth, spice, chewy malt, wood and light vanilla with a warming finish. Medium – full body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bit chewy perhaps, but decent enough overall.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   This is the 2011 vintage.   First off, thanks to Pailhead for the trade.   Deep brown pour, burnt caramel hues, thin sudsy head, tannish in color, with spotty lacing.   Soft bourbon on the nose, sweeter than most, a bit candyish with vanilla and cocoa.   Some heat and dark pitted fruit as it warms.   It also has some sweet coconut as well.   Not a hoppy Imperial Stout.   Malty, sweet, with some nice bourbon notes, but not too heavy.   Its alcohol is well hidden.   Smooth, but not silky.   Fairly full bodied.   Overall this one had some interesting sweetness, and a level of bourbon that lent itself well to the Stout.   Really enjoyable!

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Counter Pressure Filled Hand Bottle (2008 batch)... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and dark brown with a fleeting, white head. Wow, this baby still packs one hell of a punch. The bouquet is an intertwined swirl of caramel and coconut accompanied by whispers of milk chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is both boozy and chocolaty, offering subtleties of coconut and vanilla. A bit nutty as well. Finishes acrid, boozy and moderately sweet. Thanks goes out to FlandersNed for providing this world class bottle of beer!

arkurzynski (2149) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2012
2009 bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Semi-thick, black pour with quickly fading tan head. Nose of heavy bourbon, caramel, moderate dark fruit and cocoa. Flavor starts sweet bourbon, vanilla, and cocoa and finishes pretty roasty with trailing dark fruit. Somewhat boozy with burning finish. Mild plastic in the finish. Average to thin body, pretty dry with little to no residual sweetness. Pretty drinkable, but boozy.
