daknole (9225) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle. Super dark brown pour, chocolate colored head. Aroma is just loaded with chocolate, vanilla, brownies and bourbon. Flavor of bourbon soaked brownies, vanilla, dark brown sugar, pretty damn delicious!

kbutler1 (1352) - Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. 12oz. Pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan colored head. Dark chocolate, dark fruit, and bourbon in the nose. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate but not overly so mixed with bourbon flavors. Slightly hot. Overall, this is a prety tasty brew. It’s not overly bourbon flavored and the heat isn’t anything to extreme to be a deterant. Have never heard of this brewery but pretty impressed with this offering.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Hopdog. Pours a pure black color with a medium brown head. A light chocolate and toasted malt nose, some cocoa and vanilla. The flavor is very good; rich bourbon but not overpowering in anyway, vanilla, roast, light dark fruit, cocoa. A big beer but not too much of anything. Very good.

NikkTwist (1666) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Draft at the Khyber. Pitch black with a thin tan head. Slight lacing. Milk chocolate. Malted milk. Vanilla bourbon. Nutella. Some charcoal but mostly lighter barrel flavors. Smooth front and middle but a small acidic bite at the end that keeps the palate from getting bogged in sweetness. Not sure the sour note is intentional but it seems to work here by making the brew oddly refreshing (not something one tends to associate with Imperials.) Body reads a bit thin though develops a bit as it warms. Definitely worth a try.

MadIndian (2410) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2012
On draft with Stegosaurus. Excellent brew. Notes of bread, wood, roasted and choclate malts. The finish is whiskey, wood and vanilla. Fantastic.

750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! A small gold sticker indicates this was the Bourbon Barrel-Aged version. Looks the same as the regular one- dark brown, not quite opaque, little amber hue in there, small tan head. The aroma is better, though- oak and bourbon up front give off some warmth; vanilla, chocolate, marshmallow, and molasses all emerge later. Flavor of molasses, chocolate, coffee, toasted brown sugar, oak, and dried dark fruits. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty, chocolaty, soft mouthfeel. Big improvement on the regular edition.

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Aroma of vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Pours black with a big brown relentless head. Tastes strong of chocolate, cherry and vanilla coffee. Very good Mouthfeel and much better than the regular insidious.

Arayaga2 (1796) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Brown black with an inch of toffee colored head. Aroma is delicious bourbons goodness with marshmallows, vanilla and lightly toasted sugars with a bit of burning wood. Taste and mouthfeel are lighter than expected with some ashy astringency, and bittersweet chocolate notes. Finishes with warming booze. $4/12oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

r464 (1938) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Deep, dark color with a slightly foamy tan head. Deep, dark flavor as well, with chocolate, coffee, cherry, oak, and bourbon. Creamy and smooth with a lingering finish. Hints of dried fruit. Strong and full.

Goodgrief (1795) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 7, 2012
On tap, Allentown. Dark pour, frothy head. Large bourbon nose. Bourbon was a nice flavor compliment, but not overwhelming. Roasty and a tad lactic, sweet chocolate. Airy mouthfeel...a lot of carbonation. Good job.
