Sample, from a bottle. Pitch black color. Good brown head. Nice dots of lace. Good roasty, vanilla, woody nose. Some dark chocolate syrup. Light carbonation, very smooth, chewy texture. Great bitter sweet taste. Alcohol is well blended with the flavor. Good chocolate, wood, vanilla flavor. Very tasty, nice long light bourbon and chocolate aftertaste.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750mL bottle, pours a thick pitch black with a small brown head. Nose is full of roast, light whiskey barrels, a little chocolate, and light espresso. Flavour is extremely rich, full of roasted malt from the base beer, an absolutely perfect amount of whiskey barrel character, light wood, and very well-concealed alcohol. Thick palate, very viscous and so supremely well barrel aged, offering the perfect amount of whiskey character. Still not as awesome as the regular Yeti or the Oak Aged, but a fucking amazing impie stout nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle received in trade. Thank you rfraga7. Pours viscous pitch black with a frothy and creamy dark chocolate brown head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, mineral rich soil, caramel, resinous wood, boozy whiskey, dark grapes, alcohol, pine, bitter chocolate, lemon zest, acetic acid and hints of red wine vinegar. Taste is sweet, bitter and very sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, oily pine, resinous wood, bitter chocolate, whiskey, acetic acid, red wine vinegar, lemon zest, toffee, burnt cookies, mineral rich moist soil and caramel. Mouthfeel is smooth, oily tart, tiny mouth puckering and near full bodied. Finish is dry, tart and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, gastric acid, bitter chocolate, caramel, toffee, acetic acid and pine. Heavily infected... I didn’t expect this from an otherwise solid brewery.

Received in a trade, bottle number 2211. Well, it's infected and is disappointing. It has some off medicinal and cherry like aromas and tastes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
December 15, 2012 bottle via trade. Black pour with limited head. Unfortunately this is another infected bottle. You can start to get the aroma of what this BA impy stout should be, but then a nasty medicinal or ointment aroma takes over. Taste was an infected mess, just got worse as it warmed. 2011 vintage, bottle 2211.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle #2211. Dammit - infected bottle. Still decent. Dark oily pour, small soapy head. Roasty and sour - not as it was intended to be.
