COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our "Brown is the new Black" Imperial Schwartz aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels, this new element to an already amped up Schwartz is a great addition to complicating it’s flavor; soft roast, malty, oak, vanilla, and bourbon are just a few descriptors for this fine lager.

Bottle sample at Natifest 12. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted malt, vanilla and woody bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid standout brew and very good for style.

b3shine with an awesome extra! Deep brown pour, big pillowy tan head. Aroma is loaded with oak, vanilla, bourbon, roast, chocolate notes, coconut, licorice, root beer. Flavor is sweet, rich, just enough roast/hop profile to balance the loads of vanilla, bourbon, oak. Hell yeah this is delicoius.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
A big beer. Bourbon barreled imperial schwartz says it all, as it is not a shwartz. Lots of bourbon,roast, boozy, vanilla, raisin, and sweetness. The aroma is somewhat more balanced and pleasant, perhaps a function of several months of aging. Big black body, above average mouthfeel. More of a sipper in terms of drinkability. Thanks FlandersNed.

Bottle shared by noodleuser. Thanks! Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin head. Aroma of molasses, bourbon, spicy hops and vanilla. The taste is molasses, smoke, spicy hops, wood and whisky. Full bodied. Nice.

Well I dk if the spelling error was on purpose but this is a decent porterish beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
22oz bottle shared by noodleuser: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel bourbon and vanilla oak nose with notes of dark chocolate. Starts with good fullness and dark caramel sweetness with a touch of raisin and plum complexity along with vanilla oaky bourbon warmth in the finish. Could hide its alcohol a little better, but should age well.

Courtesy of Dak. It pours a nice looking mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up pears, molasses, some roasted malts and booze. The taste is smooth and gets increasingly creamy with yummy notes of apricot, molasses, pine hops and then hints of sweet vanilla and smooth sweet bourbon. Great complexity and balance here. Wow! Well done.

Draft at the pre-Dark Lord Day event, 2012. Pours a super dark brown, pretty much opaque, with a tan head that starts large and dissipates quickly. A lot of bourbon barrel notes in this, with vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, root beer, oak, chocolate, and coconut. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, roasty mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Sample from a bottle shared by Bunker. Pretty sure it was the barrel aged version. Bottle looked exactly like the one pictured. Dark brown color. Good thin khaki head. Decent lace. Good robust malty nose. Some vanilla. Big body, good, creamy and smooth. Light carbonation. Some alcohol in the taste, moderate bitterness. Dry finish. This is a great imperial schwarz. Awesome mouthfeel and aroma.
