COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IMMELMANN: An ascending half loop followed by a half roll resulting in level flight in the opposite direction at a higher altittude. Just as it takes consummate skill to perform the Immelmann maneuver in the air, it takes the choicest ingredients, patience and consummate skill to bring you our IMMELMANN, a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter. This hand crafted beer is brewed with 2-row, Munich, Cara-Munich, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Malts, Oats and Cocoa Nibs, along with whole Vanilla Beans. Aged in Bourbon Barrels for six months and blended with twenty percent fresh Porter to produce enticing aromas of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, bourbon and sweet malt along with a complex pallet of dark roast chocolate, oak and maple followed by a subtle vanilla finish. This is an intense, yet refined flavor experience to be savored today or aged to be enjoyed at your leisure.

Bottle #33 shared by duffmansw and my first rating in months. Pours nearly black with a slight beige head. Aroma is vanilla and nutty caramel, hints of fresh coffee grounds, Bourbon is very apparent but not overwhelming. Flavor is alot of bourbon, some semi sweet chocolate and slightly astringent bitterness, but no real alcohol heat. Surprisingly easy to drink considering the strength. I’d call it full bodied but definitely not thick or syrupy. Carbonation is present but very light.

Bottle. The pour is a brown copper. The aroma has a smooth bourbon smell to it, very inviting. The taste is smooth. One of the better bourbon porters I have had. Only complaint is a little thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear cola brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Flavor follows: bourbon, chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla. Medium bodied. Reminded me some of FW Parabola, for whatever reason. Good.

HonusWagner (1222) - Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
A pretty darn good cocoa heavy porter, a lighter on the bourbon than a lot of BA porters, but also not super complex. Good beer, not amazing. Would be cool to see them rebrew it since they seem to be improving a lot over the years.

Ratman197 (9030) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR (Thanks Andrew!) poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla, cocoa and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, cocoa, tobacco and light spice with a smooth lingering bourbon finish.

750ml bottle pours a watery black with some wispy white head. Nose has loads of vanilla, some distinct grain, a little toasted rye, some boozy, wood, coconut, cake. Flavor is sweet, cola, raisin, chocolate, malt, molasses and lots of vanilla. Clean finish. Very enjoyable.

750ml bottle, c&c. Black pour, with a thin tan head. Lots of vanilla, bourbon, and oak barrel. Chocolate, malty sweetness, light roast. Ok, strong on the vanilla.

IrishBoy (3752) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 23, 2013
750 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is big vanilla, chocolate, oak, candisugar, and light bourbon; like a cross somewhere between BA quads and stouts. Clear very dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor is vanilla, sweetness, chocolate, and a small toffee note.

Miked1687 (606) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle to glass. Dark black Brown body with a thin khaki head that is concentrated around the outside of the body. Nose is mostly gentle Bourbon with caramel and vanilla. Taste is sweet oaky chocolate caramel and a very boozy Bourbon flavor under it all. Big deal of alcohol heat for 10%. Long savory finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Yay. Finally rating this fool. Only had a sample of last year’s batch at Downtown Johnny Brown’s. Tap at Raglan in OB, and their chalkboard claims 11.4 ABV. Clear ruby with a small light beige head, fair retention. A little less boozy than the Tailslide up front, though still plenty of bourbon barrel. Vanilla and, to a lesser extent, some chocolate that might not be malt is noted. Flavor has the same brashness as the Tailslide, and I’m actually having a bit of trouble getting much else other than vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Finishes dry, a little alcohol noted, bitterness peaked at a 3. Medium body with low prickly carbonation. Some beers take better to barrels, sometimes the barrels are too wet. Lotta barrel in the H24 beers, which I do not mind, but does take a bit away from the beer that they spent so much more time with (creating the recipe, test batches, etc) vs. the beer merely transferred and sitting in a barrel for x length of time. Almost a disservice to the beer itself? That said, I do still enjoy this.
