3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at tasting. Black pour, thin brown head. Aroma is quite bourbon forward, very powerful vanilla bourbon notes, milk chocolate. Taste is sweet, bourbony, bourbon flavor but without being boozy which is nice, good roasty bitterness as well. Palate is med-full bodied with good carbonation, far from cloying. Enjoyable stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, and roast. Malty and chocolatey flavor up front with slight bourbon before a big roasted malt and dark chocolate finish. Finishes sort of thin compared to all you get up front, but still very tasty.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to StFun! Dark black pour, little carbonation and an aroma of dark chocolate. Flavor was also a perfect meld of dark chocolate, slight alcohol heat, hints of coffee, peat and mild whiskey. Great beer, I wish these guys would do nothing but focus on their imperial stouts!

Bomber thanks to Dan. Pours a jet black color with a medium white head. Looks amazing. A superb huge bourbon, sugary sweet nose. The flavor is vanilla, dark fruit, big sugary sweet bourbon. The barrel is clearly PVW and very smooth. Awesome.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by "Douglas88". Colour...basic black with a thick tan head. Nose...nicely Bourbony with anise and dark chocolate. Palate...dry, oaky and semi-sweet with licorice whips, cocoa mass and burnt raisins. There’s a massively viscous feel across the palate and the finish is quite long and oaky.
