Dark thick body, black. Bourbon, tobacco, licorice. Sharper sharp hops, oily body, shaper taste. Warming ending, burning. Heavy stuff. (ZeeBra)

Poured a very dark brown (almost black) with a small tan head. Aroma of roast malt and bourbon over dark chocolate and dark fruit. Full oily body, flavour as the aroma with vanilla smoothness and a lovely dry end.

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...

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.

A- dark cocoa and Carmel. Hints of spice from the barrel Appearance- black as night, not much head as most is lost to the aging process Taste- bitter sweet chocolate and Carmel notes with a hint of vanilla and licorice. Light bitterness from the roast grains and cocoa. The warming alcohol from the 11% and barrel aging balance the bitter from the cocoa nicely. Very very good. Palate- comforting and satisfying with a slight lingering bitterness an warming flavors. Overall I love this beer and as it grows in popularity it is harder to come by. Slight changes each year make it a waited addition to the cellar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet bourbon and chocolate aroma. Sweet roasted malt up front, chocolate throughout, fades to fantastic bourbon flavor and slight boozy aftertaste. The bourbon flavor does an excellent job of masking the higher alcohol content. Heavy bodied and delicious.
