bhensonb (10979) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown/black with a slight dark tan head that left rapidly. Huge chocolate aroma with hints of bourbon and smoke. Full bodied - really. Flavor starts alcohol/bourbon moving on to musty chocolate with smoke and light spice. Lots of flavor in the finish. Finishes as the flavors with an additional musty/woody tone. Mind bending flavor assortment.

Tmoney99 (10595) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, wood and bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy sweet bourbon and dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Sammy (8581) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
This bottle, a find in a recent US road trip, has some incredible characteristics. However it is much more boozy that the 12.5% abv would represent. Not that the booze is in the nose or even finish, but certainly in the aftertaste it is pure alcohol. A little thin for an IS. However the beechwood smoke was outstanding, and the bourbon is well integrated in the flavour. Dangerously drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (8395) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Mid black with a thin tan head. Nose is dark malt, boozey hit, sugars, dark toffee, light smoke. Taste comprises roast malt, wood, liqourice, dark chocolate, sugars, aniseed, bourbon notes. Full bodied with warming alchocol in a bitter roasted booze’o’clock curtain call. Decent enough Impy stout but a little over boozey, the balance isn’t quite there but I enjoyed this more than the standard Blaecorn, the BA seems to have tempered some of the booze.
