COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Edmund Fitzgerald Imperial Stout was aged in Woodford Bourbon Barrels for 7 months. Expect this beer to be black as night with a dark brown head. Complex aromas of oak, vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate are evident. It is a very full-bodied beer. The flavors are as complex as the aromas; chocolate, bourbon, licorice. This beer won gold in 2010, silver in 2008 and bronze in 2008 at the Barrel Aged Beer Festival in Chicago.

Enjoyed on tap at FOBAB. Served in a my FOBAB taster glass. A: Pours a very dark black color with a thick, tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly leaving behind nice sheets of lace. S: Bourbon, dark fruits and caramel up front. There is an underlying roasted malt notes thatís paired with some oak in the periphery. T: Wow. Dark chocolate bitterness and milk chocolate sweetness seem to be going back and forth over the palate. Decadent fudge, smooth bourbon and sweet caramel notes as well. M: Medium low carbonation with a heavy ad creamy body. Goes down incredibly smooth and highly drinkable for 9.60%. O: This was sneaky hit for me. Iíve heard great things about this and didnít even realize it was at the fest until I stumbled across it. I went back for a second pour and Iím glad I did. Iíd love to get a bottle of it. Serving type: on-tap

From old notes, maybe several years ago, marked as bottle 41/70 - My notes are very limited on this one. I think it may have been from the tail end of a RBSG grand tasting. Black pour. Thick, full body. Dominate flavors are bourbon and chocolate. Itís very good and goes down smooth.

Bottle @ Arminís house, courtesy of arminjewell and Clevar. Thanks! Pours a black appearance with a thin dark brown head. Quite roasty, earthy, dark chocolate, light whiskey, dark fruity aroma. Coffee, vanilla, slight bourbon, toffee, dessert flavor. Really nice right now. Edmund Edmonds is @tame. Bourbon Edmund Edmonds is @fuckable.

750mL bottle, pours jet black with a small brown head. Aroma is very strong, full of liqueur, vanilla, a little bourbon and red wine. Flavour tastes like a mix of bourbon barrels and red wine barrels, despite the absence of the latter, with secondary notes of chocolate, dark fruits, and liqueur. Quite unusual mix of flavours - certainly not a typical imperial stout, with the vinous notes. Finishes on the vinous notes, with subtle dry tartness. Must be infected, but it somehow works okay. Excellent off-kilter barrel ages impie.

Tap at fobab 13. This poured an almost black with stan head. Aroma was heavy roast and Bourbon. Flavor similar, mild acidic character, possibly infected?, but tasty nonetheless.

Lightly infected. It seems like a good base beer though, will have to try again.

Bottle #103/501. Pours deep black with minuscule beige head that didnít last. Notes of smooth bourbon, licorice, figs, chocolate raisins, and creamy malt. Nice, balanced mix of booze and barrel in this RIS. Medium to fuller bodied. Solid

Bottle sampled at my buddys BA tasting. From notes. Aroma of bourbon, dark fermented fruit and chocolate. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits and some coffee. Long finish with some heat on the back end. Absolutely awesome.

Lovely little beer from Tom. Smooth mouthfeel. Some lace. Very well balanced, more chocolate than bourbon. Bourbon is the aroma.
