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.

This pours thick and extremely black with a thick brown mocha head. Bourbon, coffee, chocolate fudge, marshmallow, vanilla, tobacco, molasses and raisins on the nose. Vanilla, coffee, bourbon, chocolate fudge, tobacco, brown sugar, dried dark fruit and booze taste. Thick on the palate and a great long bourbon roasted finish.

WillRunForBeer (2056) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2016
12oz bottle with silver wax. A brief celebration that reasonable heads prevailed at tonight’s town meeting. Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, oak. This is smooth with great depth of flavor. Dark chocolate, strong dark coffee, vanilla oak, bourbon. There’s a hint of overextracted coffee bitterness in the finish.

Little boozy , a lot of chocolate, Cherry oakiness, a lot of oAk at the nose, some bourbon notes. First Sip was brutal. Bourbon and chocolate meets forma very intriguing favor. With the warm there is a little sweet vanilla returns, but best part of this beer is alcool. Chocolate, dark chocolate, very very good one. oily feel, full body, smooth, extremely smooth.

Bottle shared. One of those big big whales, very rich mouthfeel, dark chocolate, dried fruit, vanilla, espresso, bourbon spice, fairly dry finish. Amazing stuff, decadent as some would say!

Bottle at home. This is one legit BA stout. It’s full of chocolate and cocoa flavor, like you’d expect, as well as some smooth, warming bourbon aromas, but it is extremely smooth and full-bodied, which really accentuates the other flavors. Rich, roasted, velvet smooth, and absolutely phenomenal -- one of the best beers out there.

Whisky, Oily, Coffee mocha, burnt flavours, vanilla and custard, cocoa nibs, flinty, dryish alcohol finish. Pretty smooth for such a big sipper.

Ferris (10779) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle - Dark cocoa and some roast. Deep jet black with a rich brown head. Sweet dark cocoa notes and nice light boozy heat. It’s pretty nice.
