Dogbrick (9642) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing during his 50th birthday bash. Pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roast malt and coffee. Full-bodied with flavors of roast malt, dark chocolate and coffee. The finish is roasty with a resiny hops and malt aftertaste. Good beer all around.

cpetrone84 (1722) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Pour is jet black with a dark caramel head and lots of large bubbles. Nose is roast, olive, touch of marker, a hint ashy, and notes of chocolate cake. Taste has light roast, cake is brighter, lots of bakers chocolate and some malt sweetness. the magic marker is gone. Creamy full body, good carbonation and a lingering roasted bitterness trough the finish.

Pretty decent imperial stout that has most of the good things you’re looking for from barrel aging.

Gription79 (2652) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 25, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. Chocolate, coffee, fruity, floral, resiny, nice and easy drinking. I enjoy the barrel aged versions, Eclipse, but this is amazing on its own.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle... Pours hazy and dark brown with a brief, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a collage of toasted almonds, chocolate and leather. Medium to full-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is sort of bland, but roasty and moderately bitter. Finishes thin and minerally. This beats out Goose Island Night Stalker as being the weakest base beer for a "major-league" program involving barrel aged imperial stouts. Many say Night Stalker isn’t actually the base beer for the Bourbon County Stout varietals. I see Voodoo’s Big Black Voodoo Daddy falling into the same slot if the barrel aged versions actually turn out to be good.

50belair (2968) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Good lacing. Sweet caramel aromas. A very nice imperial stout. Smooth and tasty with bitter roasted malts that are kept in check by sweet caramel and vanilla notes. Well balanced.
