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.

Pour out of bottle at Winterfest 2012, dark oily black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought big notes of chocolate covered cherry and other dark fruits, nice vanilla and bourbon notes that are a bit harsh but blend seamlessly with the roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes. Taste is also a nicely mixed blend of sweet chocolate covered fruits mixing with dark chocolate and coffee, but also some caramel, vanilla, and oak mix with the bourbon, finishing fairly dry and slightly sweet. Could drink this all night!

Sampled from bottle @ home shared by Countbeer. Thanks for sharing Kamiel! Opaque very dark brown to black color, average sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, bourbon, loghtly alcohol, some chocolate, some liquor, slightly liquorice. Taste malts, bourbon, some dark fruits, some alcohol, moderately bitter. Medium body although texture seems a bit thinner than I had expected, medium carbonation. Very nice.

Bottle shared by "hannont". Colour...very dark brown with almost no head. Nose...very Bourbon like with notes of brown sugar and cotton candy barrel dregs. Palate...more of the immense oakiness to start the experience, then layers of Bourbon and turbinado with a smidgen of oxidation ( this is a 2010) that actually adds a nice aspect to the flavour profile. Nicely aged!

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. It’s very good and goes down smooth.

Bottle @ Armin’s 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.

mcberko (10034) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
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.

Beerman6686 (5480) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
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.
