Draft at brewery. Black and brown head. I do not like this as much as I like the regular Inertia. The bourbon barrel imparts lovely wood and vanilla, and that is nice but strips the beer of its innate character. Boozy and happy, and those who love barrel will like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a thin, light brown head atop an opaque body. Nose of bourbon. Nice sweetness. Well balanced barrel and malt. Very very nice. Thanks Fiuljin... FILUGIN.... Fuliguin! Thanks Alex!

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
2014-10-24. Black body with an average frothy brown head. 3+ Aroma is quite malt forward, notes of roast malt, sweet bourbon character is prominent over a rich dark malt base. 7+ Average body palate with soft carbonation is decent but a touch light for this particular beer. Quite sweet, dark malt core, lightly bitter. Dark roasty malt with toasty accents. Solid, but simplistic the base beer isn’t resilient enough to carry the heaviness of the bourbon despite having a rich core. Half as much bourbon is probably called for to let more of the base come through, and to better suit my tastes. On cask at Cask Days, Toronto.

Black with a dark tan head. Aroma is anise, coffee, fig, liquorice, plum. Full bodied, slightly velvety mouthfeel, rich and complex on the palate with a great balance of fruit and roast. Taste is anise, plum, fig, black tea, hint of chocolate and coffee, subtle oak and vanilla.

vadie (1183) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Noir avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme de réglisse et alcool. Le goût est de réglisse, malt torréfié, même un peu brûlé, est un peu de café et vanille. Onctueux en bouche mais assez léger au même temps.

Oakes (14830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Dark brown, has a malted milk, coffee and strong, boozy bourbon character. Very sweet, molassesy character with vanilla, and a big boozy finish. Pour over ice cream?

2014-07-05, draught at the brewery, 12oz, 11% ABV, 7-4-7-3-14=35
black color with dark brown borders and brown small head. Mild aroma, there is some chocolate, roasted malt and wood/barrel; light manure. Lean mouthfeel, partially smooth, off-dry for an Imperial Stout; strong flavor of roasted malt, undesired liquorice, some dark chocolate, a bit salty, and some barrel. Correct bitterness.
A good beer, but a bit messy, unclassy, and in 2014 more is expected from a BA Imperial Stout. Difficult to drunk the full glass.

2014-03-10, cask at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 9% ABV, 8-4-8-4-17=41
Black color with frothy but persistent brownish head. Mild aroma of roasted nuts, vanilla, wood, whiskey. Smooth mouthfeel; lean and good chocolate flavor, moderate sweetness, some vanilla and tobacco; correct bitterness.
Balanced, elegant and very appreciated.
