mathieuc (3030) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2016
EBF 2016. Pours a dark brown with a small beige head that leave spotty lacing. Coconut, grapes, unrefined sugar make up the aroma. Taste is of bourbon, roasted malt and a bit cloying. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Sticky. Nice dessert, a bit sweet though.

SlovakSniper (4697) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Impérial stout décidément vieilli en fût avec tous les éléments d’un stout robuste + une bonne présence de petits fruits ronds et même secs avec une signature noix de coco. La bouche s’accroche sur les malts, mélasse, sucre résiduel, fruits, chocolat mi-amer. Le corps est plutôt moyen. La finale est vanillée, boisée, douce.

FlandersNed (391) - , Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2015
16oz brewery-only can. Oily black hue, low foam. Dark fruit, black cherry & sweet prune nose. Nice bourbon/oak addition in the flavor with hints of coconut, anise, molasses and vanilla. Full, almost slick body and low to moderate carbonation.

Pailhead (6273) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and a hint of roasted malt. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a small tan head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate sweet chocolate with a hint of dark fruits. The finish has light-moderate vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and oak. There’s barely a hint of roast in there too. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

b3shine (7738) - Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Draft to tulip at the brewpub. Looks good; a very slightly translucent dark cola with beige lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt, dark chocolate, and oak. A bit of dark fruit on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied and a touch hot. Could be more viscous, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Draft sample at MiWBF 14. Love the original and the BA’ing put it over the top. Smoother, slight bourbon and creamy texture. Coffee, malt and chocolate.
