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.

Scopey (12535) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Adrian from BA. It pours opaque black with a small tan head. The nose is smooth roasted malt, sweet coffee, toffee, chocolate, fudge and vanilla. The taste is roasted malt, treacle, burnt sugar, cocoa, vanilla, oily, oreos, rocky road, earthy and bourbon with a dry, roasty finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and dangerously drinkable.....

kraddel (6191) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2013
bottle obtained in a trade ( 2 times, 2 dioffrent people. thnx guys ! ) 2011 vintage, at home, in my talisker bowl/glass . seriously. stouts in this, is the best ! pours black with a red glow, when you pour it in front of the light . small brown, fading foam. smell is oaty, not that intence , actualy. and i get no bourbon. so i think my fear of ’ another bourbon overkill stout’ was uncalled for ... taste rather low mouthfeel . AWSOME ! shit , why diod i trade my other bottle? bourbon is perfectly blended here. no overkill, but so there, in a good way ! buttery, oaty, robust feeling, perfect carbonation, vanilla ,... everything you could want from a bourbon BA impoerial stout, and than even better. im amazed !

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 2011 version compliments of ZMDR1975. Thick oily goodness poured into a snifter. Exquisite aroma of bourbon, vanilla and oak. Time to age did this wonders. The majority of the heat has mellowed into a smooth, silky liquid with just the right amount of warmth in the finish. Nice and complex between the deep, rich malt, the bourbon, vanilla and black licorice flavor. So much going on here, practically left speechless. Time for another sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (5761) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared with Brian, pours black dark brown with light head and lacing. Notes of dark cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, molasses, vanilla, and heavy coffee grounds. Mouth is pretty creamy, not nearly as sticky as I expected. I would agree this is better then most of the recent dark lord releases.
