4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Pours black , no real head . Smell is bit bitter, roasted malts . Taste is chocolatty , bitter , dark malts . Creamy, full mouthfeel . perfect mouthfeel . Pretty damn nice !
re-rate. Bottle at the Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting. Thnx for the awesome day, folks! This bottle was shared by Dennoman. Thought bourbon was a seperate beer, but it seems that this was the basic beer. This specific bottle tasted a bit sharper, and I scored it 4,1 instead of the earlier 4,4. So updating it to 4,2.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into snifter. Appears black, fairly opaque with a small mocha head that breaks into some spotty lacing. Hints of some legs up the glass, but they are short lived. Aromas of wet oak, chocolate, dark fruits, molasses and anise. Taste is subdued, but the character is nicely balanced. Oak and molasses harmonize but was hoping for a bit more substance out of the body. A little light on the palate but provides some nice depth with roasted nuttiness permeating through in the finish along with a warming bourbon. Nice offering!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured in a snifter. Deep brown-black, not too thick-looking. Very thin, cinnamon-colored head. Sweet and nutty aroma. Pecans, almonds, maple, vanilla extract, tangy chocolate. Rich. Very oaky flavor. Chocolate syrup, butterscotch, vanilla and maple in the front. The swallow brings alcohol, graham crackers and burnt toast. Sweet throughout, smooth. Can easily see myself downing a whole bottle in minutes. Body is just a touch thin -- medium-light. Carbonation is nearly not there, just a gentle tingle. Hardly any alcohol burn except a flash at the swallow. A perfect blend of flavors, enjoyable and crazy drinkable. A beautiful beer. Just need a bit more body and co2.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pitch black, with a small khaki head that turns into a ring that sticks to the glass. Real oily up is in this bitch.
Aroma is big of bourbon, slight toasted coconut, plenty of vanilla, banana, caramel, big fudge, slight smoke, dark fruits soaked in booze, licorice, some booze.
Taste is pretty sweet, with some roasted bitterness to it. Medium n’ oily body, with a flat carbonation. Pretty darn complex, and darn delicious. Thanks a big bunch to mr. Booggy for sending this my way.
