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 at another tasting. Clear deep brown copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is really bourbony, tons of sweet vanilla notes, rather light overall. Taste is sweet, really flavorful, more intense than the aroma. Palate is med-light bodied, light carbonation. Nice.

MrHangover (2762) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of Vaiz. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has touches of vanilla, caramel, light barrel touches. Flavor is very sweet, loads of typical American touches, big vanilla touches. Definitely the barrel is noticeable in the flavor here. Very well balanced. Good stuff going on here, very well balanced.

Bottle shared by someone at RBWG 2011 from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a smaller tan head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, tobacco, oak, chocolate, caramel, and some espresso. A touch of earthy bitterness cuts the barrel notes at the finish just a bit. Very nice beer.

beerbaaron (1341) - Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle #2131/2520. 2013 vintage. Dark mahogany pour. Luscious medium creamy beige head, swirls leaving drapes of lace. Aroma is wonderful. Soft smokey bourbon. Chocolate. Medium coffee. Vanilla compliments. Bourbon barrel leads over sweetness or roastiness. Bourbon Barrel forward but not dominant. Flavor matches. A good medium to medium plus body. Soft and smooth. Great rounded feel. The nicest warming sensation, without a trace of heat. Warming comes hand in hand with the perfect level of medium roastiness. Semi dry, barrel coating. Sweetness is kept in check. Love the spicy smokey bourbon here.

MarinEvelyn (589) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2014
extremely sweet malt, dark sweet fruit, just very strong and sweet. Strong alcohol aroma as well. Taste is not as sweet but still very sweet. A strong bourbon/alcohol taste throughout. A little vanilla but the oak, bittersweet chocolate, malt, and bourbon are the most powerful aspects for me.

ICEatALAMO (994) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2014
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
