Poured from 330cl bottle numbered #51803 a very dark inky black with a minimal brown head. Aroma strong of whisky and chocolate notes. Also notes of taosted malts and wood...amazing aroma! Flavor is close to a chocolate stout but the strong whisky flavor makes this beer different from any other I have tried. Toasted malt and wood are noticed in the finish.

On cask at Firkin Fest. Pours black with zero head and no visible carbonation at all. nose is woody, smokey and heavy bourbon. taste is much the same, with light vanilla aftertones and a hint of smoke. Lots of people talking about this rare gem.

Black dense body and brown mostly diminishing head. The aroma is very complex, dominated by cask wood, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some whisky notes. Pleasing creamy, moderately sweet body. Flat carbonation and long flavour duration.

Via footbalm, thanks homelicious. Smells like grandpaís binge. Big ol butt lacy panties, the kind that lend themselves to echo farts. Tastes like angel tits. Not at all what I was expecting but a very nice treat instead. Iíve found a new religion.

11.2oz bottle in a snifter. Opened with a bourbon scent from the bottle. Poured an opaque black with a dense tan head - very attractive. Aroma is unmistakably bourbon - strong alcohol character, toasty chocolate and vanilla. Ends with some slightly bitter and oaky molasses. Taste is very heavy with a slight bitter or sour. Body is full and creamy with a light carbonation - almost flat. Overall, this is an amazing example of a stout. It is expensive at $15-$20 USD for a 330ml bottle but well worth it if you like stouts.

Really dark, almost black foam. Caramelly, chocolate, coffee and a nice touch of whisky. One of my favorite imperial porters.

The smell is sweet and inviting. Chocolate, coffee, a hint of whiskey and a little licorice. The taste is delicious. In a way this is both complex and simple in taste. One may well conclude that as a compliment to the beer.
