Arayaga2 (1813) - 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

Goodgrief (1811) - 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.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2011
750mL bottle. Poured cola brown with a colossal cap of dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty bourbon and vanilla over mocha sugars and a little roasty espresso.. a little sharp around the nose.. woody sourness and peppery warmth on the back. The flavor opened with tangy barrel and grainy herbal/medicinal notes.. mocha, molasses, and ashy black patent maltage on the middle.. tasty, but a little stale bourbon around.. finished sour and grainy, with more mocha sugars and bourbon. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. decent balance overall, but the barrel did too much at times.. also seemed like there may have been a mild infection.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2011 (750ml bottle thanks to jyoungsbcp) near black pour with deep tan fine bubbles, effervescent. Nose of light bourbon, vanilla, wood, alcohol, chocolate, and fudge. Taste of umami, bitter coffee, dry, cocoa powder, thinnish body, not a long duration either on the palate. Alcoholic kick at the end, just not rich enough. Rating: 7-4-6-3-13

Re-rate (Growler thanks to ericandersnavy) espresso ruby-brown pour with soapy light tan bubbles. Nose of big milk chocolate, bourbon, fugde. Taste has a bit of smoke, watery chocolate, bourbon, cream. Body is a bit watery in general. Rating: 8-4-7-3-14 (Averaged the two)

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Pours black. The carbonation seems a little on the fizzy side; bubbles are pretty large at first then fades to a cream like head. Nose is roasted burnt malts, yeast, bread, raw wood, and whiskey. Flavor is heavy on barrel aged whiskey, vanilla, and caramel. Palate is pretty thick and rich but has a little too much carbonation fizz. Overall a pretty good imperial stout but a little one dimensional burnt whiskey character.
