musinj6 (468) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours an opaque black with small tan head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma up front is of sweet bourbon, oak roasted malt, espresso, hint of dark cherry. A little sweet, a little boozy. Medium body, slightly sticky mouthfeel. lightly bittersweet finish. This is surprisingly not a heavy beer, which is actually what I would hope for in my stouts. Starts out very solid, but the finish is not incredibly strong.

16oz pour at Spacebar comes a thick black with some soft, white head. Nose has a lot of roast, licorice, toast, the bourbon is there but itís more a vanilla/caramel thing than anything. Flavor really comes through with the booze, loads of vanilla, toasted wood, coconut, something a bit artificial like cheap rootbeer, licorice, burnt malt. Full bodied, lightly boozy finish.

DialSquare (3520) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2015
12oz bottle - canít remember where I got it. Black pour, enormous frothy light tan head that takes forever to recede. Aroma of chocolate, zesty, wood. Tastes are sour... looks like this has evolved. Pretty much tart green apple and vinegar throughout with chocolate, molasses, coffee in the background. Heavily carbonated thin palate. Kind of like it as a sour. No idea what it was supposed to taste like.

dnstone (2365) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 10, 2015
Deep chocolate brown color with an off-white head. Vanilla, caramel aroma. Well-balanced caramel, coconut, vanilla character on this stout; bourbon is light enough to complement, but not overpower. Great!

nearbeer (4230) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2015
12 oz that appears to have been bottled in January 2013. Pour is black with a lasting meringue-like foam. Aroma is spicy toffee, and coffee with a hint of vanilla. Front tastes of tart green apple. Finish has some coffee and green herb. Very bipolar and no barrel presence to speak of. Medium body leans to the dry side with the acidic roast and the tartness. Medium carbonation and well-hidden abv. After rating and then reading others, this bottle might have been slightly infected.

DrunkSanta410 (653) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle at home thanks to Jeff (drfabulous). Pours dark brown / black, lots of carbonation and an overwhelming head. Iím pretty sure I didnít just pour poorly. Wowza. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, light bourbon. Taste is light bourbon, chocolate and coffee, vanilla. A bit dr. Pepper ish. Mouth is overwhelmed by carbonation. A little out of place here. Flavors are decent, but the body and carbonation needs work.

willisread (927) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Nice vanilla, cacao and bourbon notes on the nose. Taste is thin-bodied and watery. Carbonation is too fizzy. Fruit notes show up as it comes to room temperature. Overly sweet. Kind of a mess.

Bottle. Dark w not much head at all. Good aroma. Oak & vanilla notes. Looks and smells good but watery and thin flavor. A bit disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours solid dark brown with small head that disappears quickly. Aroma is roasted malt, some bourbon/whiskey, vanilla. Taste is the same; not anything new coming through on the palate. Incredibly thin and disappears almost immediately from the palate. Mouthfeel is all wrong for an Imperial Stout. Overly carbonated. Not awful but the mouthfeel is so thin that itís not really pleasurable to drink. I regret buying a 4-pack of this. Maybe Iíll cook with it.
