From notes (10/20/15). Bottle shared by Jeremy at Earth Eagle members’ party. An immense amount of bourbon flavor is in this beer, which only makes a rich beer even richer, considering how full bodied and full flavored the original EMJ is. Very good, but I’m glad I shared the bottle -- this would have killed my liver and my taste buds if I’d taken it down myself!

The nose on this outstanding. Coffee and bourbon. Lots of alcohol on the front, nice coffee flavor. The booze is a bit outrageous.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very slightly translucent dull black with bubbly tan lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, oak, vanilla, and a bit of bourbon booziness and oxidation. Tastes like it smells with a smooth but warming medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.

Bottle. No head on pour for this pitch black beer but developed a ring being carried from room to room. Smell of ruined hops. Taste of licorice, molasses, prunes, raisins, cherries, chocolate.

superspak (4400) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled in late 2014. Pours dense pitch black color with no head and a thin ring of bubbles. Minimal lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, dark bread, fudge, raisin, prune, vanilla, toffee, oak, bourbon, and roast/oak earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, dark bread, fudge, raisin, prune, leather, soy sauce, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, smoke/char, and roast/oaky earthiness. Good amount of roast/charred bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, dark bread, fudge, raisin, prune, leather, soy sauce, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, moderately slick, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a light-moderate warming lingering after the finish; but it’s not boozy. Overall this is a fantastic barrel aged imperial stout. All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the big ABV and lacking carbonation. A highly enjoyable offering.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and oak and booze, some chocolate and vanilla and light coffee, plus some hints of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a lot of booze. Thick texture. An unique beer but not that enjoyable because of the booziness.
