Smells like butter. Tastes like butter. This is rancid. Really sad that they let this hit the market at all, knowing it was such a mess.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, caged and corked. Pours with the looks of a monster, meaty and black with substantial toppings. This drinks with much more sweetness than I anticipated, with a bit of candied cherries and licorice. (#6047, 10/11/2015)

Black, with a huge brown head. Smells boozy, vanilla, and fudge. Taste is Vanilla, bourbon, some dark chocolate. Very heavy palate. I mean, it was good, but, I donít know, kind of typical? does that make sense?

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cellared for 3 months, looks like it was bottled 7 months ago. Pours nearly black, maybe a little murky and there was a small amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Thick head that doesnít last and a good amount of carbonation on the tongue. Flavor is immediately rich, dark, bitter chocolate and a long finish of the same. Bourbon and caramel, vanilla. Roasted malt, a hint of very dark malt. Creamy, silky texture.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, 2015 vintage- Pours black with a semi large tan head that reduces leaving some lace. Aroma is bourbon, somewhat tart, lactic, cherries, cocoa, wood, unique for this style, itís not all chocolate and dark roasted malts. The taste is oak, bourbon, chocolate, toffee, the tartness is less in the taste, imparting a more traditional bourbon bbl imperial stout, yet extremely well crafted. So smooth and velvety, the alcohol is noticeable but well in check. Very good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark pour, fair sized mocha head. Taste and aroma of whisky, corn and caramel. Iíll assume itís infected as its lighter bodied and has a bizarre acidic aftertaste. Either that or its just a shitty stout. My revenge will not be pretty
