750mL thanks to brainlair and ryan. Pours a inky black, scant head. Red highlights. Taste is sweeter with some warming alcohol finish. Mild bitterness, dark chocolate, some red wine acid. Palate is dense, scant umami character. Dry, bitter cocoa finish. Very nice.

Bottle shared by Ryan. Pours opaque black with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is prunes and raisins, oak, bourbon and vanilla with cookie and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet malt, dark fruits with light hops and bitterness, bourbon and vanilla with a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle courtesy of ryan, thanks! Pain in the butt cork and cage, very annoying. Pure black, flat. Bourbon dominates the aroma, subtle coffee in the background. Taste is boozy coffee and booze. Boozy.

50belair (2166) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Coco puff aromas. A little thin in the body but with very tasty dark roasted malts, smooth bourbon, coco, mild chocolate, vanilla, and oak notes. Good mouthfeel and balance...

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2013
There were 4 bourbon-barrel-aged beers on tap as specials for "bourbon month" at Block 15. Many of them are stunning, but this took the cake. Deep primordial mud brown-black with a creamy ring of head that is full brown (very dark even for a stout). Oils are apparent on the surface. The bourbon and vanilla notes are pungent and serve as counterpoint to a balanced, semi-sweet imperial stout. Chocolate and sweet grain come to mind; hops are not in the forefront here. Like a milkshake and dangerous. I want another glass!!! Palate is smooth, silky.
