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.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting, Sept 2013 - Pours near black and smells of roast malt and chocolate. The flavor has very chocolate rich. It’s sweet with some vanilla notes. This is a full bodied brew with a roast chocolate finish. Really good.

Full bodied rich with only a slight chocolate hint. Leaves a good after taste not overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very nice beer. Sweet vanilla chocolate come through. Bourbon does not. Wish they would let it sit for about 6 months. Nice aroma I would like a bit more chocolate. I may buy another bottle and let it sit. Nice chocolate beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keepersj12 (2761) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2014
A very tasty brew best for the cold weather. Pours a dark brown with a very thin head. The aroma is the weak link, just a bit if chocolate and some bread. The flavor however has chocolate, vanilla, some dark fruits and grain. It is a think beer made for sipping.

Crompt (120) - York, South Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2014
This is one sweet treat! Chocolate comes through more than the bourbon so I’d classify this as a true dessert beer. For a bourbon stout this good it is a must buy at this price point.
