tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Pours jet black with a small super dark brown head. Lots of toasty malt and oak on the nose, dark bitter chocolate, roasty coffee, caramel and licorice, and a subtle hint of bourbon. Wow, this is a thick oily beer. The muscovado sugar i feel is more prevalent in this than the base beer, plus nice sweet dark cocoa, mocha, lots of oak, a slight spiciness, caramel and molasses, and just the teeniest amount of bourbon. Really really good beer, but maybe not enough barrel character for my liking. Late edit: Let this warm up. It is sooo much better the closer to room temp it is.

22oz bottle, from Dutch’s (we only got 6). Shared with Ratebeer friends. Pours impressively pitch black. Thin brown head, fades to a ring. Leaves some kinda loose bits of lace. Awesome big barrel and stout character, such big flavor. Dark chocolate, liqueur-soaked dark chocolate cake, batter, bit of brown sugar, nice mocha. Good complex barrel character (bourbon, maybe something else?). Awesome big barrel, but not harsh or too boozy. Definitely a touch of warmth, but it’s not unpleasant. Moderate-plus bitter, nice big sweet but not at all cloying. Bigger body. Nice chewy velvety texture. Light carbonation. Mild slick. Some dark fruit character. Delicious, big barrel aged stout. Fantastic. I poured maybe 175ml max and that was more than enough for me to fall in love and type all this. Sitll have a third of the glass to enjoy, and that’s totally OK. This is a beer to share, sip and savor.

Bomber to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a fairly opaque very dark (almost black) cola with thin beige head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells great! Rich and decadent with loads of dark malt, chocolate, oak, some vanilla, and what seems like a bit bourbon. Tastes like it smells, but a bit less balanced. Still great though. Some bitterness and booziness on the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium-full to full-bodied. Delicious.

ctipping (226) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Inky black. Medium khaki head. Thick collar. Smell is whiskey and fudge. More fudge than whiskey, though. A little wood. Slightly fruity. Fudgy taste. Nice whiskey. Lots of rich chocolate. I can’t discern barrels. Just lots of whiskey. Some bitter coffee in the back end. Boozy. Medium heavy. Well carbonated. Simple, but huge stout. Great flavors that get a little sluggish.

Clownoisseur (362) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Ozark_John, thanks JB! Pours near black, brown hues and a pillowing brown head that recedes to a cap. Nice lacing on the glass and a solid pair of legs. Aromas are pretty bold bourbon, rye, wet oak, chocolate, anise, tobacco and hints of vanilla. Smells hot! Taste is more balanced than expected, but still provides a very prominent barrel character. Loads of chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel, anise, allspice, tobacco, dark fruits-cherry/raisin, notes of sherry. Medium to heavy body, never chewy...but with the big bourbon/rye on the finish, I feel like more body would have provided a bit more balance here. Nice depth to the beer, no doubt. Just can say it was as amazing as some of the other Imperial Stouts of it’s class. Solid beer, none the less!

RobertDale (4266) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2015
22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and bourbon. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, dark fruit, and some molasses. They got this on blended perfectly.

Huhzubendah (3002) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Near black, opaque body with a thin, beige collar that rapidly fades to a thin wispy cap. Grandiose aroma of bourbon, chocolate, dark roast, chocolate covered raisins, sweet booze, oak. Incredibly rich. European style roast with notes of plum and raisin. Thick body. Palate coating. Mild sweetness with lingering dark chocolates and perhaps some residual dark cherry tones. Delicious.

bytemesis (4654) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle thanks to dd07! Pours inky thick black, medium dark brown creamy head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is rich and decadent, lots of barrel influence with whiskey, vanilla, and port notes, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor is medium sweet, and medium bitter, roasty, chocolate, vanilla, port, whiskey, oak, some tobacco, a touch of anise, molasses. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, a bit hot. Pretty tasty beverage.

Bottle. Black pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Great aroma of chocolate fudge, cookie dough, light roast, and tobacco. Tastes even more complex. Thick chocolate syrup, tobacco, light espresso, vanilla, light rum, cookie dough, and caramel. Medium to full body. Great, complex beer but I surprisingly still like the regular version better.

superspak (3415) - Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 2900th review! 22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled in 2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense dark brown head with solid retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Some slight lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Fantastic aromas with incredible complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of huge dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class barrel aged imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. Very similar to Even More Jesus with some mellower deep roasted character and added rye and barrel complexity. An insanely delicious offering.
