12 oz bottle courtesy of The_Enemy. Pours to a slightly hazy, deep caramel to brown color, with a thick, off white head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with aromas of sweet malt, caramel, oak, vanilla, and bourbon. The palate is soft, with good flavors of sweet and nutty malt, paired with light hints of oak and vanilla. This beer finishes with more good malt flavors, and ends with good oaky/boubon flavor that lingers. Well done bourbon aged beer. Could have used more dark malt, dark chocolate flavors as far as imperial stout goes, but a minor flaw, as I found this to be a very well done, very enjoyable beer.

Thanks to Landseer for this one. Poured dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is nutty, with carmel malts, earth notes (dirt), toasted bread, and overall sweetness. Aroma reminds me much of a brown ale. Flavor is dry earth notes (dirt), some nut and sweet malt. The earthy notes dominate the flavor. Medium bodied.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2006
12 oz bottle, Hennepin glass, Noogfest. Dark murky brown with a small frothy tan head. Aroma is soft but mostly caramel and salt water taffy with distinct sour (almost lactic) and sweet (toffee and flowers) notes lent by the bourbon. Flavor is mild overall with a caramel/toffee sweetness and a slightly sour aftertaste. Sticky and creamy with soft carbonation and a ’little too thin’ medium body. Looking at the rating averages by month, it seems this one has gone down hill recently. Open’em if you’ve got’em, I suppose.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Aroma is saturated with alcohol and chocoalte. smells awesome. flavor is chocolate and bourbon, with some oak and vanilla bean hints. some of that sour cherry flavor i sometimes get with impy stouts that arent aged long. hints of acidity but it doesnt ruin th emouthfeel as somehow its still goes down pretty smooth. i like it.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Poiurs a thin brown body with a small head. Some malt and bourbon in the aroma. Sweet flavor with some bourbon and vanilla. A bit of sourness in the finish. Thin for the style.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2006
A dark brown beer with a flat chocoalco flavor with a bit of a watery palate. The finish is an odd sourish thing that I’ve never tasted in a stout. Thanks to Jay or Larry?

aracauna (3126) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2006
This dark brown stout is a bit sour. The bourbon is overridden by acid, but the effect is actually pretty interesting and not bad at all, at least if you’re a fan of the Flemish sours.

Kevin (2098) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Muddy red brown with a mild gray head. Smells of oak, cherry, lactobacillus, and grape bubbleyum. Thick chocolate flavor with a strawberry sour. Finish is powdery with more cocoa and light booze. Ap-2 ar-6 tas-4 pal-2 ov-11

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Dark brown in color with a relatively thin head that is tan and darkens at the edges. Big, incredibly round, but not complex aroma of sweet malt, milk, and warm, dark fruit. Overall a sourness taints the flavor profile of this beer and allows nothing to show itself properly. It reads ’keep refrigerated’ on the label. Something must have continued to ferment in this that is not necessarily positive to this beer.
