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.

Excellent bourbon aged cask beer... Bourbon not too overpowering... Hints of vanilla.

Just what you want in an imperial stout. Rich dark chocolate color, smooth and smoky forward palate and enough residual sugars to soften 9.5%ABV finish. You have to work at it to keep from downing it too fast. Added to my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft from the source. Pours nearly pitch black with medium head and soapy lacing. Aromas of bourbon, bakers chocolate, and vanilla beans. Flavors are the same with the most luxurious dark chocolate truffle amidst some pecan and a dash of spice from the bourbon. The epitome of a desert beer. Astonishing.

Cybercat (3785) - Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours rich, warm sable with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma fills the nose with roast malt, mocha, bourbon-soaked wood, molasses, and a snip of licorice. Flavor sends the tongue thanks to bourbon, woody, molasses, coffee, and sweet malt notes plus hints of chocolate and licorice. Viscous, heavy texture has good fizz. Let this siren seduce you - but if you get too seduced, please call a taxi.

Inky black pour with a generous foamy khaki head. The aroma is very pleasing with notes of charred barrel, bourbon, and cappuccino. Big full flavor with loads of sweet dark roast malt, caramel, bourbon barrel/char oak, and a touch of espresso and more oak. Sweet and bourbonny and chocolaty. Plenty of chocolate.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9.5% and there is a short description of the beer as well. Appearance: The body has a very dark brown, motor oil like pour. In the glass it looks black as night and opaque with a small tan head. It?s head holds on well and makes lots of nice slick lacing on the glass. Smell: In the nose I get notes of chocolate, caramel, fresh baked bread, molasses and raison.Taste / Palate: The flavor brings all of the wonderful notes from its aroma to the tongue on a big full and smooth palate. In the background there is a very light sweetness and mellow vanilla undertone.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 I love this beer. 8oz from tap. Pitch black color with a thin light brown head. Tastes like coffee and chocolate with a thick smooth mouth feel.

Pours from a bottle a deep brown black with a khaki head. Aroma is of bourbon, baker’s chocolate. Flavor is rich: chocolate, fig, vanilla-oaky-bourbon. A nice alcohol. Well-balanced roasty sweetness with a hit of delicate burnt bitterness. Nice full mouthfeel. A very good beer. If I keep drinking more of it I might have to rate it higher.
