Big dark chocolatey goodness met with roasted coffee. Enjoyable medium sweetness. Hops weren’t as explicit as the description led one to expect. Bold and well worth returning to.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012.03.14 - 650ml bottle in pint glass. Bottled 03/06/10. Pours very dark, basically black. Very opaque, no light gets through. Caramel colored head is active and endures even after settling. Aroma is a bit of raisiny sort of sweetness and a bit of smoke. Taste matches, sweetness up front and finishing with a bit of alcohol warmth and bitterness. This is a pretty heavy stout, and strong at 11.7%. Not bad.

22 oz bottle - 2012 bottle. Pours viscous jet black, with huge tan head, lasting and beautiful intricate lacing. Big pungent hoppy aromas of grapefruit, oranges, slight malt and coffee but mostly all hops. Medium bodied. Tastes of big fruit, malty bread, and finishes with bittering goodness. Lots going on, very fresh.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perfect pitch black body. Brilliant aroma of heavy coffee malts, mild hops, incredible depth.
Taste is overwhelming. Raisins, vanilla. Though hard to describe this is clearly world class beer, abundant in character and easily keeping its distance from other venerable beers.

Black with a small dark brown head. I get a mostly chocolate and alcohol aroma with only a minimal amount of hops. I wouldn’t say this was a "hoppy stout" but it does carry more bitterness than the Bourbon County. Really nothing surprising, but still a great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big sticky mouthfeel, tons of nobel hop aroma, flavor and bitterness. This imperial stout puts a huge emphasis on the hops. Nice appearance with a lasting dark ring of foam. This was a bit more hoppy than I like for an imperial stout, but that’s just me. Pretty good stuff.

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, caramel and chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, piny hops and alcohol. Almost a cough syrup aftertaste with a slightly smokey flavor.. The hops make this a very unique and delicious stout...this is great. A stout for hop heads!

Loved it! I tried it at the brewery as my beer capper and it was so good it didn’t matter that I had already drank like 6 other beers. The flavors were so strong that my pallet was ignited again even after all the others I had tried. I mean a strong hop with a sweetness to it and it was a black beauty? I haven’t had the Bourbon Country Stout, but I got a glimpse of it in this delightfully chocolate cream dessert.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- licorice, hops, chocolate, caramel
Appearance- charcoal black with a decent white head and some alcohol presence
Taste- bitter, dry chocolate, hop middle, smooth finish with hints of cocoa, molasses, and hop astringency
Palate- high carb, slick mouthfeel
Overall- I usually dislike higher IBU impy’s, but this one is decedently smooth and sophisticated. Nice brew.
