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 (217) - 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.

TXBadger (2357) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
2016 bottle date. Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Even though it’s aged for a short time in barrels, it has a ton of bourbon on the nose with some vanilla bean, chocolate, and oak; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes with barrel, chocolate, and vanilla. Nicely done.

furthur (739) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2016
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.

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!

rondphoto (3573) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 7, 2016
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.

BroadestTom (342) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2016
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.
