harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Run 2, 2013 Pours black with some light oat etching. Smells of cola, pepper, some flour, some toasted malts, leather a bit of vanilla and that’s it. Flavor is smoke, oak, alcohol, dates, leather, maduro tobacco. Medium on full bodied with moderately low carb and a semi dry finish. Well, good to try, nothing to loose sleep over.

Dfonorow (1741) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2014
2011 Bottle. Pour is black with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor on this is very sweet, borderline cloying. Notes of raisins, oak, brown sugar, vanilla, brownies, chocolate, and roasted malts. Some slight bourbon in the finish, but it is mostly overpowered by the sugary characteristics.

b79turner (243) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 12, 2014
22oz bottle 2013 poured into a tulip glass. Black as night, but not overly thick. This has a very nice smooth consistency. There is a slight amount of peat on the nose. The barrel aging really does great things for this stout. I’d love to try all variations.

Bottle as shown thanks to Kevin. Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is roast, smoke, and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with rich chocolate and roast with nice sweet finish. Hides alcohol well, very impressive.

reebtogi (5068) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light tan head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is dominated by bourbon with hints of chocolate and licorice. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain and coffee bitterness finishing with the bourbon and a healthy alcohol burn. Medium bodied with some mild carbonation. Much more complex and tasty than I can put into words. Very nicely done brew that suits the style very well and is highly recommended.

Niall73 (2291) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle, 2012. Pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Aroma is very rich coffee, treacle, soy, teriyaki, some booze. Full body, medium carbonation. Licorice, toffee, treacle, dark fruits, red berries.. Nice.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
2012 vintage. 22 oz bottle from Total Wine in Tucson, served in a stem glass alongside Elijah Craig 12 year. Pours black with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves lots of fine lace. The nose has big molasses and caramel malts along with chocolate, oak, bourbon and a touch of licorice. The flavour is roasty-malty with herbal hops and a touch of pine. The finish is long, roasty and slightly hoppy. On the palate it is full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout; the bourbon is quite subtle but it adds a nice degree of complexity. 2013-11-22

Big bourbon with lots of vanilla, also almost a cigar hint in there. Pours dark with a ruby edge and light head. Taste big sweet and medium bitter. Big alcohol burn. Wow!
