tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2011
22oz bottle from notes. Pours a typical oily, thick black with a sustained dark khaki head. Pleasant aroma: bittersweet chocolate, símores, vanilla, dried wood, toasted marshmallow. Light char. Flavor is full of cocoa, vanilla, wood, light char, ash with a kiss of melted chocolate. Fairly silky and creamy texture. Low carbonation with a slightly boozy finish. A simple, but well put together BA Impy. Thanks Greg!

Bottle thanks to Mofobrother. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of nice sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweeter bourbon, dark sweet fruits and molasses. Straight forward smooth and slick smelling BBIS! The taste is sweet and smooth with notes of chocolate, vanilla, fudge, dark sweet fruits, sweet bourbon and with a silky body. Nice and gentle balance in this.

jredmond (6138) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Mike shared with Max. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, oak, light booze, sweet sugar and light lactose. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet belgian chocolate up front, followed by lots of sugar (but not too too much), light oak, some faint woody character and sweet vanilla. Medium to light-bodied considering the abv and flavor profile. Nice stuff, thanks Mike.

22oz bottle. Tons of fudge, touch of barrel but it plays a small supporting role to the sweet chocolate. Super smooth.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle from trade - thanks blazay. Pours clear dark brown, like cola, thin white head. Immediate gust of vanilla and bourbon, fudge, dark chocolate. Palate is disappointing - thin and gluggable rather than thick and unctuous. A touch of oil but otherwise feels lightweight. Intitially rich and sweet, milk chocolate. Chunky fudge flavour along with bitter bakerís chocolate, only a hint of bourbon. Some vanilla and oak. Slight molasses bite and cacao on the finish. Itís good, but not great
