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.

Bottle, black, thick, decent almond colored head. Aroma toasted barley, oak, chocolate, booze, hint of wet dog, and raisin. Taste is chocolate, oak, bourbon, molasses, burnt sugar. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation moderate. The finish is pretty oaky, beer is sorta sweet in the middle, but dry on the finish.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy light brown head. Notes of dried cherries, dark chocolate, and a decent amount of vanilla. Different.

On tap at Distillery, Savannah. Rich creamy coffee aroma. Huge caramel, vanilla, bourbon taste. Toasted marshmallows. Moderately bitter and boozy finish. Serious business. Very good.

Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a little booze. Taste is bitter chocolate upfront but gets sweeter as it goes. A little hoppy bitterness at the end. Very chocolate taste but not too sweet as advertised. Very good imperial stout!

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of toasted malt and bourbon. Opaque black color, dark tan head, streamers of lace. Taste is slightly bitter roasted malt that slips through a slightly carbonated swallow to chocolate that begins semi-sweet, then becomes sweeter as it glides to a beautiful rich chocolate finish. I smelled alcohol, but it stays in the background while drinking. Unusual in that the bitter is followed by sweet, but no matter - this is a silky smooth, full-bodied beer that has great complexity and balance. Worth the search.

Aroma caramel, chocolate, roasty, vanilla, Appearance brown, black, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, Palate medium body, Overall a very well balanced barrel aged stout. In my opinion this would be a great beer for someone who has never had a barrel aged stout. It’s not overwhelming but still lets you know it is a barrel aged beer. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

Back Log. Bottle Gift from Matt Rementer. Couldn’t remember the name. This was just okay for me. Strong notes of burnt malt. Subtle notes of dark chocolate, fig and roast. But that’s it. There is no real blend of anything else. The burnt malt is really all I taste. 93 beers left before retirement.

Pitch black pour. Brown head, not much retention, no lacing. Aroma mostly bourbon with some chocolate. Definitely thin on the body. Flavor tasted off to me. Neither the chocolate or the bourbon was very prominent. Keeping hitting on an unpleasant burnt taste. Overall just didn’t come together for me.

Simply delicious!! Very dark, very chocolaty, taste of bourbon--very well done. Vanilla. Mix it all together and it is one of the best stouts that I have had in a very long time! If you can get it--do so--I highly recommend it!

Strong taste. Great for drinking alone. May be hard to pair food with especially off cask. But if you are looking to just drink something, it’s GREAT!
