beechner224 (667) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from UDBeernut. Pours black with no much head to speak of. Aroma is strong bourbon and vanilla. Taste is smooth, vanilla, bourbon, roasted coffee. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but tasty.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from a trade at least a year ago. Aroma and flavor is bourbon-forward with a thin coffee palate and some carbonation. Taste is really representative of the barrel, but the beer definitely takes a back seat. Good beer tho.

changeup45 (1716) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle received from Summer Secret Santa. The pour is a deep brown/opaque color with a pencil thin tan head that fleets off to the edges of the glass. The aroma first unveils bourbon and molasses. Notes of toffee, licorice, and wood follow. The flavors consist of raisin, chocolate, sweet tobacco, bourbon, and a roasted, ashy malt finish. Medium body, low carbonation. Somewhat warming but not all that rich or hefty. Pretty solid barrel-aged Imperial Stout.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Crikey! Bottle in trade with UDbeernut. Nose of light plums on dark malts. Tight mocha head that the lacing sticks closely to. Sturdy body, dark as night, evenly infused with a central tinge of bourbon. First of the day.

SamP01 (560) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2013
A deep dark black with a small brown head on the pour. Aroma is of toasted caramel malt, has some cacao essence and dark fruity esters. Taste same as aroma with some mild flavors of bourbon barrel aged wood notes and moderate bitter notes of cacao. A full creamy body, smooth with sweet bitter flavors and caramel malt on the end adds some balance to a flavorful brew. A very good, tasty and enjoyable brew.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, caramel and vanilla. The flavor has the same along with a bit of smoke. Nice and thick with a long lasting after taste.

Draft at Allentown. Pours opaque dark brown with a very thin head. Smells very sweet and boozy, like syrup, molasses, sugar, bourbon. Tastes like syrup, chocolate, bourbon, tobacco. Light body and low carbonation.

sonnycheeba (3506) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Tap at brewery. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, bourbon, oak, plums, raisins, floral notes, and light vanilla. Flavor matches the nose with smooth, roast malts, bourbon, oak, dark fruit esters, and light vanilla. Medium body and low carbonation.

emacgee (4010) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours a pretty rich dark black with some light on the edges. Thin wispy tan head. Nose is pretty barrel heavy with some toasted wood and vanillin. Coffee and bitter chocolate make their way in for sure. Flavor is nice enough. Tastes like a well done IS homebrew with some Bourbon soaked oak chips thrown in. Some rich chocolate notes. Full bodied with a clean alcohol bite and some tannic oak.
