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.

stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Pitch black pour with a feathery lingering head that’s khaki in color. Lacing from foam is clinging to the glass. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate with bourbon accents backing up the malt. Round milk chocolate taste with thin lingering finish of bourbon vanilla and a mild 80% dark cocoa finish. Nice dry powdery dark chocolate lingeringfor some time on the palate.

Draft: Big chocolate flavors, but the alcohol hides away in this very well. Dangerous beer... just screams dessert to me.

Apache (47) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Very mellow for a 9.5% beer. Pours dark with a thin head. Aromas of chocolate and bourbon. Taste is mild bourbon and chocolate.

bagalagalaga (146) - Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Much more mellow flavors than other imperial stouts, actually more chocolatey than bourbony. Not very heavy mouthfeel for an imperial stout either. It is a very good beer, might pick it up again sometime but not one I’d stock up on.

baraciisch (2244) - California, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Pitch black in color, viscous pour, not much head... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, caramel.... Flavor of chocolate malts, dark roasted malts, vanilla... Light bitterness on finish... Mouthfeel is a bit thin, doesn't carry the bourbon well ... Bummer, could have been better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: caramel fruitAppearance: dark, vicscous. Taste: bitter, boozy, sweet backend. Palate: like a french sauce. Overall: had quite a bit of potential, fizzles, "balance" swings too abruptly (bitter/sweet), surprisingly high total score for a beer I wouldn?t buy again.

nearbeer (4061) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2015
650 ml. Pour is opaque ebony with a lasting spit of creamy foam. Aroma is charred toast, espresso, soy, booze and dark chocolate. Tastes of soy, roasted peanut, prune, vanilla, chocolate, whiskey and a touch of espresso. Just-above medium body is smooth with medium carbonation and has a nice balance. Shows a a nice chest-warming abv.

onceblind (5220) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2015
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.

22oz bottle pours a thick black color with a bit of head. Very mild easy going flavors with the bourbon standing out a little. Nice chocolate. Mild sweetness.

2015 bottle. Poured into tulip. Very little head, if any. Aroma of chocolates and roasted malts And Bourbon. Taste chocolate and vanilla and fairly strong bourbon flavor and alcohol. Carbonation was fairly flat almost to flat. It was ok since lighter carbonation works with the style. Fairly smooth finish. Overall enjoyable beer.
