GTMW! Black pour with a tan head. Peat and smoke aroma. Flavor was similar, heavy bourbon, chocolate, toffeee, caramel. Bitter finish but had a bit of sourness.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2008
GTMW 2008: Deep brown hue with a good head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, chocolate, roast, prune, vanilla and oak. The taste is very balanced between the stout characteristics and the bourbon barrel. Malty and oaky supported by bitter coffee and hops with a bakers chocolate background. The mouth feel is lush and oily with an ashy dry finish. NICE!

GTMW ’08. Black pour with some garnet colored light shining through. The head was a lovely brown color. Smelled of raisin, fig, subdued alcohol. There was also a whiff of dark roasted malt. Medium to full bodied. I tasted dark chocolate and hints of smoke, wood, and soy. Decent, but not a show-stopper.

Small sample on tap at Great Taste of the Midwest on 8-9-08. Labeled as "Oak Aged Ironman Imperial Stout." This may well warrant a separate entry, but I’ll leave that to somebody else. Feel free to move my rating or inform me via beermail if an oak aged version of this beer is entered on the site. Pours dark brown with a light tan head. Sweet, barley wine-like aroma. Nice, dry, bitter taste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Nothing special overall. As you can see from this rating, I didn’t have much left in my palate or desire to scribble notes at this point. This was the last beer of the festival that I rated (but far from the last that I sampled), save for two later, special releases.

gtmw 08....i believe that this version was barrel-aged but need to confirm.... reddish dark brown pour with a thin film of light brown head.... very light oak in the aroma with some complimenting chocolate notes.... dry chocolate flavor, light oak, semi-lively mouthfeel but resembled more of a brown ale with chocolate notes to me.
