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 (212) - 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.

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.

Thanks Chris. Pours a pitch black nice fluffy head, sticky lacing. Nose is sweet, some chocolate and caramel and a touch of coconut / toffee. has a lot of my vanilla home-brew imperial stout crapiness. I’m a terrible homebrewr that brews an okay stout and it has that same tannic sweetness / harshness and disappointing overall. Still drinkable. and nice to split with some friends.

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours opaque black with a 1-finger dark tan head. Aroma of vanilla from the wood, with a mild note of chocolate beneath. Body is full, but a touch watery, with a light boozy astringency in the finish. Flavor of coffee with chocolate, and maybe some raisin underneath, before the vanilla and some light heat from the bourbon come through in the finish.
