Bottled thx to Julien @ Julien’s neighbour is a metalhead according to Rob-tasting, small sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of quite some coffee, roasted malts, bourbon is a bit cookie and biscuity but lacks the vanilla, almost rye like. Wonderful complex flavor of caramel and cookie sweetness, bitterness from roasted malts, some depth from the coffee. Lovely brew.

La version en fut de bourbon est délicieuse. Il arrive souvent qu’un vieillissement en fût fait disparaître des flaveurs de la version originale, mais ce n’est pas le cas avec celle-ci. Oui il y a une grande présence de vanille, mais le café et la torréfaction sont encore bien présents. En fait, j’ai un peu l’impression de boire un café vanille française alcoolisé. C’est vraiment très bon!!!

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014, but I think I’m the only one out of all of us who hasn’t yet rated this! Thanks to Blake for bringing this along! Viscous near-black, densely malty with tons of fresh coffee roast character from the base beer, but with a heavy bourbon presence of equal magnitude. The flavour density here is insane! Finish is a tad boozy, but not unpleasantly so. Wow!

I opened this two year old bottle at foofaa’s while he smoking a whole bunch of chicken for dinner. Thanks for hosting buddy.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a thin film, leaving no lace at all on the glass. Rather dead if I’m honest.

S - Smells of deeply roasted coffee, oak, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, dark roasted malt, warm bourbon booze. Still has quite a bit of coffee for its overall age, pretty impressive aroma.

T - Starts off with a mild coating sweetness - mainly the chocolate, vanilla and fresh toffee - quickly being joined by the warm bourbon, woody oak and plenty of dark roast. Finish is pretty dry thanks to all the roast and booze, lingering long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate to low carbonation. This is definitely a big beer but the feel kind of got away from it. If it could be bumped up a bit this one would be money.

O - I had wanted to try this one for awhile and I am glad I finally got to try it. It still packs plenty of the base flavors and the bourbon is a complement rather than the star, as it always should be. I would love to have this again.

Bottle, thanks to SlovakSniper. Inky black pour with a medium tan head. Lots of bourbon, coffee, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma, and a touch of oak and red fruits. Flavour is the same, with a nicely balanced bourbon finish and a very silky smooth sweet chocolate and coffee flavour. This is a fantastic imperial stout.

Thanks alehunter for this gem. This is insane. Massive vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate fudge aromas. Chocolate chip cookies too. Thick black pour with quickly disappearing head. Sweet and smooth with a bitter coffee after taste. Vanilla, semisweet chocolate, oak, ash. All things good in a glass is what this is. Phenomenal.
