PhillyCraft (3222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2011
On tap at Capones. Dark black pour, thin tan colored head. Aromas are very chocolatey, with creamy vanilla oak. Taste is sublime....so much vanilla, bourbon, smoked oak, cocoa. This beer taste like a "coke float", coke out of the glass bottle mixed with vanilla ice cream. Lacing is occasional and spotty. Best beer I have ever had from Fegleys, and one of the best imperial stouts I have had the pleasure of trying.

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.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
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.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2011
750 cc from Capone’s. Pours thck oily onyx with minimal off-khaki head and spare lacing. Nose is rich woody bourbon, cacao, chocolate malt. Tastes rich, complex, very spirity, with a huge chocolate malt bill, some cacao, and some peaty and scotch whiskey notes late. Hops too. This one is very good, and would go great with a Fuente Maduro Churchill and a wedge od aged extra sharp Vermont cheddar, but only the orange kind.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Growler. Nice strong medium brown head of fine bubbles that reduces very slowly leaving a thin sheet of foam over the surface. Very impressive head. Rich bourbon aroma with some butterscotch, vanilla, rich chocolaty malts and some cookie dough. Color is basically black. Body is a bit thinner than expected. Bourbon accents are very mild in the flavor unlike the aroma which smacks you in the face with bourbon. Some more vanilla and dough with mild chocolaty malts. Could use more malts the increase the mouthfeel and body of the brew. Light alcohol presence and warming. Finishes rich and chocolaty with a bit of lingering vanilla. A pretty damn good imperial stout which benefits from the bourbon barrel aging.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Opaque black with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, smoke, charred wood, and light bourbon alcohol. Taste of roast, dark chocolate, some light dark fruits, vanilla, wood, and a faint bourbon finish.

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.

daknole (9100) - 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!
