ajnepple (5094) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Probably a different version as this was listed at 9.5%. Black appearance with a brown head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, roasted malts, milk chocolate and light coffee. Similar flavor, vanilla, wood, light whiskey, dark malts, dark chocolate. Medium plus sweetness and minimal to light bitterness. Pretty full body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation. A pretty tasty sipper, heavy on the barrel flavors.

On tap at the brewery. Pours an inky brown and looks syrupy. Smells of licorice and dark chocolate and vanilla and bourbon. Great lacing. Tastes of whiskey, vanilla and thick syrupy, sugary goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Hops and Pie. Pours black with a couple of inches of thick khaki foam which disappears quickly. Big whiskey notes on the nose. Nice balance of the whiskey aging and the roasted malt on the tongue. Finishes clean and hides its alcohol remarkably well which makes this some dangerous shit.

Ratman197 (13290) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2013
On tap at Denver Beer poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla and dark chocolate. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, bourbon, oak, light chocolate and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty bourbon finish.

markwise (5189) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2012
On draft at Denver Beer Co. Pours a stout brown with a tan head. Nose is wood, roast, dark fruit, and a tiny bit of coconut. Flavor is similar with roast, dark fruit, and light coconut with some earth. Medium in body and lingering earth and unsweet cocoa in the finish. If I didnít watch the bartender pour this beer, I would swear it was not the BA version.

Smells lIke molasses and chocolate and some oak. Looks a welcoming black. Nice mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Taste of cherry and coffee up front. Strong bitterness from the oak, with some warning from C2H6O.

Heavy black with an intense aroma of dark chocolate, coconut, caramel, a little boozy vanilla, and a little bit of that sweet/dark boozy bourbon character. Kinda smells like they were trying to replicate a Samoan girl scout cookie in beer form--successfully. Flavor is rich and full with a bit of dark bourbon boozy esters, a bit of oak, some dark chocolate, some boozy caramel, a hint of vanilla/coconut, and finishing on some roasty dark chocolate grains. Quite smooth for a barrel aged impy, but super flavorful and restrained, with a delightful sweetness that isnít cloying but big enough to drink as dessert. Huge props to DBC for the most delightful barrel aged imperial stout Iíve had in ages.
