A touch of sweetness dances in balance with the hops to finish with a wave and then shes gone.

Aroma of bourbon soaked fudge. Pours a thick black with a short lived tan head and fine abundant lacing. The taste is wonderful! Bourbon, chocolate, toasted malts, with a touch of bitterness in the finish and a grainy aftertaste. Extremely smooth full bodied mouthfeel accompanied by soft carbonation. Overall, while expensive, it was a real pleasure to taste. Very very easy to drink. EXCELLANT!

Bottle pour at What the Funk 2014. Pours a black color with off white head. Boozy, vanilla, bourbon, oak, roasty, cocoa, boozy aromas and flavors. Others were really digging this beer, but I thought it was a little too boozy for my taste.

Man. Huge beer. Well integrated flavours. Not too much bourbon but the vanilla/maple touch is well defined. Sweet, moderately roasted, full bodied. World class.

Pours dark brown, thin layer of very brown foam. Aroma has vanilla, booze, bit of bourbon, alcohol. Taste is also very intense, warming, beautiful alcohol bite. Cocoa, chocolate cake soaked in bourbon. Beautiful.

TimE (3971) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
Pitch black color. Tootsie rolls rolled in chocolate quick, with lots of vanilla and coffee. The mouth is insane with a shot of espresso, mocha, bourbon. Like a bourbon milk shake that is very full body. The bourbon, chocolate and espresso just lingers forever. Amazing.

2014 bottle. Pours black with a small brown head that disappears quickly. Nose is vanilla, bourbon, wood, coffee. Flavor follows; gets better as the beer warms. Creamy full mouthfeel and very well balanced. Awesome beer.

Bottle, shared by a kind soul, in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours basically black with a small head and very little lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bourbon heavy and oaky but with some nice dark chocolate and even a little bit of port wine character.

The flavor is plenty dark fruit and dark chocolate forward. The beer has some mild tobacco and some bitter cocoa. The bourbon is well controlled and works as one aspect of the whole as opposed to dominating the flavor of the beer.

Very nice stuff.

(22oz bomber) deep espresso brown (near black), wispy tan bubbles. Nose of bourbon, dark chocolate, charred wood, marshmallows, smells great. Taste is heavy on bourbon but its integrated really well, burnt marshmallow, dark chocolate, medium alcohol, medium thick body, great linger.

Bottle, 2014 vintage. Pours a jet black and topped with a creamy brown head. Nose is inviting with espresso, dark chocolate, roast, and barrel. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with big roast flavors amongst the bourbon barrel and dark chocolate notes. Really silky and layered flavor. Top tier impy stout. Along with the 25 month old APA they got me for Christmas, this was from my in-laws. Yep, they did me right on this one.
