12 oz bottle pours out a dark near-black with a good amount of tan head. rich full aroma, with some whiskey notes and plenty of roasty cream character. for the high abv, there’s not any noticeable alcohol heat and a nice full body to carry the huge array of flavor. quite a nice brew; the spicy rye is an intriguing touch and it ends up very enjoyable.

Solid butterscotch smell to start and sweet bourbony flavor. Finished slightly bitter and sweet with not much boozy flavor. Pours black with a thick tan head. At least 2 fingers tall. Very easy to drink. Had a bottle pour at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured to shaker. Nice whiskey aroma, but booze doesn’t dominate the palate. Starts off on the palate with carbonation masking flavor (too cold). Flavors appear as it warms. Creamy vanilla and toffee. It’s not really complex but I like it (must admit: I’m a sucker for any whiskey/bourbon barrel beer that isn’t a booze bomb).

Bottle Day 1 of advent calendar. The pour is a deep rich brown, like molasses. The aroma is strong rye whiskey. The taste has big whiskey throughout and finishes a bit harsh. Big bold taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Bottle: Black center with ruby edges, very dark; a huge, foamy tan head rises up on top, at least four fingers. Obnoxiously large, really; leathery & long lasting. Aroma of cream, chocolate candies, burnt caramel, vanilla, light coconut from the barrel, modest woody tannins, & a hint of whiskey warmth poured over everything. Taste is both sweet & strong. Bigger whiskey presence, warming, maybe even a little hot. Sweet, rich chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, vanillin, wood, & a touch of dark prune sweetness. Lingering mouth coating of dark cocoa beans. A little thin on the mouth feel, too much carbonation, but the end of the glass gets creamier with time.

Ah, Gretchen, thank you, sweetie. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown color really super close to black color. There was a light lacing going around the glass. The smell had a really nice.sweet to roasty somewhat oaky and almost a light vanilla trying to come across in a really sort of way. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this sat about a medium with a fairly good sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but wasn’t anything overbearing. Overall, not a bad Imperial Stout, might have again.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a dark brown with beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is booze, vanilla, and oak. Slick mouthfeel with sweet roast, bourbon, and light rye. Decent.
