COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s Siren Noire Imperial Chocolate Stout has been revamped. We’ve aged it for three weeks in bourbon barrels, which gives the beer darker notes of raisin and fig. We’ve also tripled the amount of chocolate nibs and added vanilla bean. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet. Mt. Hood hops contribute a fruity hop profile, with notes of black currant.

2013 batch. 22 oz bomber purchased for an extremely reasonable $5.49. Poured into a DFH signature glass. A - Pours a deep dark black body with three fingers worth of dense light tan foam. Fades away gradually but leaves behind excellent lacing with some seriously long retention. Looks great! S - Milk chocolate, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Not getting any bourbon notes but it does smell like a nice chocolate stout. T - Smooth milk chocolate, slightly robust malts, and a lingering sweet vanilla. Like the nose this has little to no bourbon presence...really just a faint nod towards oak on the finish. It is quite tasty though. M - Light to medium bodied, just a tad below being creamy. Carbonation is about spot on. O - "...aged in bourbon barrels" is the killer here. I’m getting so little bourbon presence that I’d swear its just the base beer. However this is a damn tasty and affordable stout albeit its a bit on the thin side.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Black pour with a small light brown head with decent retention and a thin, stringy lace. Nose of cherries and vanilla, mildly, lightly sweet malts and a hint of whisky. Soft carbonation, oily palate with some heat. Well balanced flavors of chocolate, faint roast, cherries, maple syrup and a hint of booze. Bit of tobacco and licorice too. Some what sweet malts on the finish is dashed by a nice little alcohol burn. Better than expected. Hangs right up there with the big boys. Bomber from statelineliquors. A bit under rated also.

GMCC2181 (1500) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle via wolf. Black in color. Nose is oak, bourbon notes. Smells boozy... Taste isnt as boozy. Malty, chocolate, roasted malts, ashy, chalky, oak, vanilla slight booze but not over the top. Very drinkable for a 9 percenter.Body is slick, on the lighter side for an Impy stout. Overall: Nice brew! Thanks wolf!

The aroma is sweet and chocolaty with bourbon, toffee, butter, vanilla, and molasses. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thick. Overall it’s very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Lots of chocolate on the nose, along with notes of cherry, raisins,cocoa, vanilla, oak, and hints of booze. Almost black with moderately fading, tan head foam. Sweet, savory, robust, and strong tasting, with mainly roasted dark chocolate flavors and some licorice. Full bodied, very smooth, with low carbonation, and a chocolatey finish with a touch of oak.

Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head. Smells of chocolate, touches of bourbon, spicy, some earthy elements. Tastes of dark chocolate, spice, some dry oakiness on the finish. Okay.
