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.

Bottle. Pours black with a one finger tan head that left spotty lacing.Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, oak and vanilla. Flavor was sweet with oaky bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit and some subtle coffee. Smooth texture, full body, fine carbonation.

ElCapitan22 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Pours a jet black color with no lacing or head retention. Smells of vanilla and bourbon. Tastes like bourbon right up front with a vanilla and caramel finish. A very solid beer, and one that I would look for again.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours hazy and thick dark blackish with minimal tan head. Nose was dark malts, woody bourbon, cacao, hops, prunes. Tasted thick and rich, with a dark malt and oaky bourbon flavor up front, then some molasses, hops, vanilla, and cacao as it warmed. Very good.

Not super memorable. Pours black with food head and lacing. Oak barrel is overdone here. Bitter finish. Some dark chocolate. Tap at smoke and barrel.

AmericanSpirits (7) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014 does not count
Lots of chocolate and coffee, bourbon flavor is light, too light to balance out the healthy vanilla flavors. Not the most absurdly balanced ba imperial stout, but a combination of only great flavors. Would drink again, and again, and maybe even a fourth time.

"Think the abv and label have changed. Light bourbon and a TON of chocolate on the nose. Sweet and decadent. Defiinitely a dessert beer. Reminiscent of Rogue, with a hint of bourbon replacing the bitterness in Rogues Chocolate or Double Chocolate Stout. Excellent."

Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and bourbon. Sweet chocolate malt start with caramel and toffee followed by flavors of figs and vanilla. Finishes with bourbon and oak , dark cocoa, some smokiness and coffee. Some bitterness from the cocoa and coffee flavors and a little lingering booziness. Wow! This is a great brew!

With Zach over homemade chili, pours a deep black color with a java head. Nose is malt, chocolate and bourbon. Taste is chocolate and malt and upfront bourbon, and drinks with ease. Finishes on the smooth velvety tasting notes with a moderate long ending. Worth a try ! Quaff Score 8 / 10
