The_Osprey (6595) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, into snifter. Bottled Nov 2013. Black, big tan head doesn’t endure that long. Aroma has some paint and booze, caramel and vanilla fudge, bounty bar, touch of apple maybe, lightly metallic. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is spicy, some earth, charred wood, just a touch of alcohol in the finish. Easy drinking for the style. Aroma is more interesting than the flavour.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
2013 bottle from BrewDog CJ. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich roast, espresso coffee, toasty coconut, vanilla, marshmallow, dark chocolate, tobacco, brown sugar and bourbon. The taste is smooth, lightly bitter, rich roast, coffee, bourbon, toasty, warming alcohol, mild smoke, medicinal, chocolate ice-cream, vanilla and oak with a roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. All comes together rather well. Smells spectacular and don’t taste too shabby either. Pretty brilliant.

biggsbowler (600) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle - pour dark brown with tan head. A slight bourbon aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. More coffee and chocolate in the taste. The feel is creamy and smooth. In the end, I think the bourbon muted what is so good about the non BA version.

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
(On tap at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours inky black with a big dense dark tan head (nitro? didn’t see it poured, my better half ordered it). Aroma bourbon, fresh oak, espresso roast, sweet dark chocolate (thought of ChocoSol Darkness, for Toronto people), fresh coffee beans. Flavour sweet at first, dark malts bringing toffee and dark chocolate with a bit of bourbon. Espresso and charred bourbon barrel taking over later in the palate with more roast evident. Finish is bitter with a sweet core, whiskey and black coffee with brown sugar. Big flavour concentration. Mouthfeel fairly full, creamy, rich, very soft carb. Peche is already a fantastic imperial stout and the bourbon barrel compliments without overwhelming. Is it better than the normal version? No. Worse? Definitely not.
