750 c&c from michael-pollack who has my eternal gratitude. De-corked with a loud pop. Pours black with a 4+ finger creamy dark tan head. All kinds of aromas. Toffee, coffee, bourbon/vanilla, chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is all of the foregoing, but the chocolate is near dark baking chocolate, and the bourbon is playing against that. Amazing that the chocolate competes so well with the bourbon. Brilliant ale.

750ml bottle shared by mikelovesbeer. Thick dark pour with a big fluffy head. It was like your standard Imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. Boozy aroma with chocolate and malts all over the place. Palate was somewhat shot by this point of the night but it was solid beer.

boamr (309) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2011
Pours black with a tan head. Has a vanilla, toaste malts smell. Taste is about the same with a little cocanut in there as well. Pretty good overall but the boubon seems very mild on the bootled version but still solid.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2011
Draft at Devil’s Den with Vin. Pours a dark obsidian black with a fluffy, persistent tan head. Lacing is full and lingering. Aroma of soft, sweet bourbon, lightly toasted coconut, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and slight hints of molassess and vanilla. Rich yet surprisingly light mouthfeel with some nice boozy warmth on the tongue. Tastes very much like a rootbeer float with chocolate syrup on it. Amazing.

On tap at champs. Black with quarter inch dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate and Whisky. Flavor is sweet chocolate and Whisky. Quite good, but not spectacular.

zathrus13 (1719) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown/black, with a large, brown head. Aroma is chocolate, bourbon, roasted malt, vanilla, and fruit. Flavor is bourbon, roasted malt, fruit, vanilla and a touch of alcohol. A little thin, but overall really nice. Better as it warms up.

dmac (4091) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s picked up by pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a solid black body with a small tight foamy deep beige almost brown head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, oak, pudding, chocolate candy and alcohol. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of chcolate, vanilla, bourbon, alcohol, wood, and a hint of bananas Foster for some reason. Pretty solid.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2011
Thanks to Mike, had this side by side with the regular version, an instance of barrel aging not improving a beer... Dark brown with a nice head, falls a touch quicker though... The taste and aroma are mostly generic barrel with vanilla, a hint of chocolate. Not good... Pass
