A bourbon oak aged imperial stout with subtle under-tones of vanilla, oak tannin and a kiss of bourbon. Focus on the details and sip slowly to allow the character of the devil to reveal himself to you.

nimbleprop (4596) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 23, 2013
22oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with some fizzy, beige head. Nose of chocolate, malt, toast, grains. Flavor is sweet, malty, grain, chocolate powder, crackers, coffee grounds. Full bodied, but dry finish. Gushed, but wasn’t infected.

ICEatALAMO (911) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Not sure if I have an infected bottle but way over carbonated. The aroma is super malty. The taste is average. Not getting any barrel flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2487) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Good effort for a first try, but leaves something to be desired. The aroma brings sweet bourbon barrel notes. Pours dark coffee, unclear with a big creamy dark cocoa head. The flavor brings sweet bourbon notes, but lacks the roasted malts flavors you want.

Bottle thanks to a friend. Black pour no head. Heavy cocoa, licorice, dark fruits, light coffee. Easy on the palate, nice licorice and cocoa, blended with roasted malts, and a smooth finish.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle:   Black, deep cola hues, large fizzy beige head, dies quickly, spotty lacing.   Soft buttery roasted malt nose, slight vinegar, touch of barrel and bourbon.   Thinking this is either spoiling, or an aged bottle.   Reviews vary on this one, from gusher to normal.   Not a gusher in this case.   A bit more oakish on the tongue, definitely woody, roasty, a bit of burnt marshmallow with a slight acrid background.   Not a smooth example, a little rough, and certainly not overdone.   Almost seems like a really aged example that is about to go over the hill, but I dont think its that old.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes roasty, stale, a bit musty, with an airy acridness, subtle notes of woodiness and bourbon.   Perhaps better really fresh, but in the bottle it seems to maybe not do so well.   Thanks for the bottle Kevin!

blackflag321 (464) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2012
I don’t know if something was wrong with my single bottle or if this beer is just a fail. Beer exploded from 22oz bottle upon opening (no, I didn’t shake it). Bottle kept spewing even after pouring out half of it into a glass. This tasted nothing like any imperial stout I have had. . . it was not good. Thin, watery on palate. Burnt, chocolate and vanilla ash taste.

dcschiller (2204) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle from Rayl101! Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has loads of bourbon and wood. Taste is sweet and follows suit with the aroma. Medium bodied. Smooth finish with some light smokiness. A nice suprise!

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Black in color with an enormous head that nearly fills the glass. The nose is just awful. Highly metallic and acidic with the only stout characteristic being the roasted malt. The flavor is similarly bad. Very acrid and harsh, super metallic and acidic as well. Somewhat roasty with maybe a touch of oak flavor. No way I’d care to have this ever again.
