COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a big and full bodied Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels with lots of roasted malts, but very balanced with heavy hops. Brewed with a top secret root, this beer has an amazingly complex flavor that you must wait for.

Bottle received in a trade with tferillo, cheers! Pours pitch black with a notable brown head which soon recedes to a bubbly ring around the glass. Aroma is jampacked with vanilla, malt sweetness, roast malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, slight cinnamon spice and mild coffee. Taste is vanilla, oak, leather, molasses, burnt sugar, slight creme brulee, raisins, dried fruits. Theres a hint of ginger spiciness and almond velvetiness. Full bodied with sticky and oily mouthfeel.

Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. My first taste of the night, this was a solid opener. Near black pour and small brown head. Nose is bourbon, espresso, and chocolate malt. Heavy roast and espresso, lighter in vanilla and some bourbon. It hints at woody, but overall very smooth.

2012 bottle grey wax thanks to Tom. Pours black with beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is roast, wood, vanilla, bourbon. Slick mouthfeel, dark chocolate, wood, vanilla, roast, lingering bitterness, very impressive.

blipp (6713) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2015
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, light roasted malts, chocolate, and a quick easy finish. Balanced, not at all over the top. Delicious.

simont1 (365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
2013 Vintage. Pours very dark with a thick brown head. Aroma is complex, roasted coffee, chocolate, deep roasted with some faint oak bourbon character. This is a deep roasted solid stout, and you completely feel that the base beer is phenomenal, but it overpowers the bourbon character a bit. A very complex bourbon barrel-aged beer, not completely driven by the bourbon barrel, with a thick lasting mouthfeel, but something just feels missing.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle courtesy Jess P. 2014 Vintage. Pours an opaque black/brown, little bit of tan head. Aroma very oak-forward, with some dark chocolate and vanilla notes, caramel, too. Body is full and roasty, with finish full of vanilla and oak, sweet but with a bruising almost acerbic oak character as well. Wow...
