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.

From Dak! Pours a dark brown color with a garnet hue. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and marshmallow. Taste is sweet with more bourbon and vanilla. Medium bodied and smooth. This is one pretty awesome beer!

Draft at Fobab 10. Pours a deep brown, near black with a tan head. The nose is soft chocolate along with some charcoal. Strong notes of woodford coconut and vanilla back it up. On tasting, fairly robust. Good barrel presence and integration. Quite clean overall. Medium bodied. Chocolatey finish and drying charcoal as well. Really solid beer.

FOBAB. Pours very dark brown to black with a medium sized tan head that disappears quickly. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of bourbon barrel, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, oak, chocolate. Medium-bodied and pretty tasty; maybe just a touch too much barrel. So much to do and so little time.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Thanks Danny! Deep amber pour with a white head. Nose is sweet bourbon, nice malts, and vanilla. Great flavor that similar to the nose and not too sweet. Pretty tasty.

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.

A nice scent of sweet bourbon, roasted malts, vanilla, and oak. The flavor is malty. The bourbon has a nice taste. I also picked up on the oak with a slight vanilla taste. There is a minimal bitterness in the Schwartz. Overall the bourbon lingers and coats the mouth impacting the palate mildly. Its not a bad thing but it is noticeable. I enjoyed this drink. The only negative is that the flavor dissipates quickly and what sticks around is a good bourbon flavor.

Bottle shared. Pours a darker brown with no head. Aroma is raisins and figs. Tastes sweet with a little heat on the back end.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a fine bubbled khaki head in this glass; the head is average, with modest lacing, and modest retention as well. The nose is heavy on the barrel treatment. Oak, Vanilla, Booze... and some caramel,chocolate, roast notes. This one starts off fairly one dimensional, yet seemed decent enough. As it warmed it went a bit downhill for me, revealing more of the booze than I would have liked. This one seems like an interesting take, but fairly pointless by my estimation. It does have a soft feel, but its overtaken by the barrel treatment (oak, vanilla, booze, bourbon), with some chocolate, roast, caramel notes near the finish. Not bad but.....

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.

Dark brown, tinged ruby at the edges, nearly black in the middle. Smallish tan head faded fast. Light carbonation. Rich nose is roasty but cut by the strong burnt caramel and whiskey aromatics. Flavor is similar, a potent alcohol presence gives it a burning kick, mild roast, lots of chocolate, vanilla, burnt caramel, oaky bourbon. Rounded palate but the alcohol and astringency detract from what is almost an easy sipper. More than a little rough around the edges.
