UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Lots of malted chocolate syrup flavors but not too sweet and well balanced. Really enjoyable from the small sample size I had.

Part of a BBA IS blind tasting. This actually was near the bottom. Kind of boozy, alcohol, sweet dark sugar, molasses, dark fruit, chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Pretty nice, not great.

12 ounces on tap at brewpub. Aroma: lots of bourbon, alcohol and subtle roasted malt aroma. App: pitch dark with small brown head, nice lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth but quite strong which doesn’t bother me at all. Medium sweetness, light bitter and alcohol finish. Overall: this is so good. Quite heavy and big but this is quite awesome. Would love to be able to get some bottles of this one.

Full body, thick, soft carbonation. [Note: deserves a re-rate, will enter one at some point as I have a bottle in my cellar] -- Re-rate October 6th 2015, shared my bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Opaque pitch black color, full sized thick dense brown head that lasts for a very long time and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, dark and roasted malts, some chocolate, mocha, lightly a hint of alcohol. Taste malts, roasted malts, chocolate, lightly nutty, mocha, dark fruits, bitter. Thick texture, full body, soft carbonation. Lovely!

Bottle @ home. Thanks again, Jake. Black in color with minimal tan foam. Mostly a bunch of dark chooclate, roast, and vanilla. Some alcohol, a hint of fudge, and a touch of ash. Nice dark fruits, at least. Lots of burnt sugar and molasses notes as well. Pretty sweet, but does have a nice bit of roast character to it still. Much better than the Nooner 6 we had just prior to this.

rbradley82 (6) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2015 does not count
Aroma - solid but nothing overwhelming; hints of whiskey, oak and chocolate roasted malts Appearance - beautiful; pours a beautiful black with subtle transparency while looking black as night in the snifter Taste - amazing example of the style; beautiful base stout with chocolate, burnt caramel and roasted malts blended into wonderful, but not overwhelming sweet whiskey vanilla notes and drying tannin finish Palate - full bodied without being chewy; perfect carbonation for the style Overall - just a wonderful representation of a barrel-aged imperial stout; nothing seemingly overwhelms or standouts on this one but all aspects are well above average to great
