Tasted from a capped 650mL bomber bottle at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to DrSilverworm for sharing. Pours hazy, opaque dark brown with just thin tan lace. The nose is lots of coffee and vanilla, molasses, dark chocolate brownie, milk chocolate, and maple bourbon. The flavor is pretty coffee forward, nicely balanced with coffee and dark chocolate bitterness, along with the sweeter vanilla, caramel, and maple bourbon. The body is full with light carbonation and a long caramel bourbon and coffee finish. Excellent!

koleminer20 (2355) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeffs on July 20. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a lighter brown/black color with a thicker tan head that falls down quickly, leaving a couple spots of lace behind. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of fresh coffee. There is almost a bit of green pepper to it, so I think it needs a little time. There is a good nuttiness and a lot of roasted malt. The bourbon is a little hot, but its pretty balanced. The flavor is a little more balanced. The coffee is still very green. There is a nice roasted malt and a good chocolate before the bourbon and charred oak kick in. The mouth feel is a little thin, but well carbonated. The aftertaste is pretty good. There is a lot of booze on the back end that Im not crazy about.

Sample from bottle #131/230 at the "Jackie Os Staff Bottle Tasting Part 2" on 12/18/2015. The beer pours a brown-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily to a thin outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and bourbon. Full-bodied with an oaky bourbon and roasty malt and coffee character. The finish is bourbon-infused mocha. Very good all around.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle shared during RBWG 2014 Asheville - Late Nite session. Cheers! Pours oily black-brown with a creamy tan head. Rich, thick and chewy, with lots of hearty coffee character, dark chocolate, modest earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming to hot on the finish, with more rich chocolate, oily coffee, scorched earth. Really solid overall. Quite dense and deep. Excellent.

Countbeer (5996) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle: Chouffe glass: Bottle #7/230: Almost completely black with a small brown head. Chalky aroma with loads of coffee, praline and chocolate. Delicious! When one snifs on and on, it reveals more dark complex notes. Very nice! Flavour is rich of coffee, coffee roast, bitters, spice, chocolate, praline, some wood and bourbon and a rum/alcohol touch. Again, going further its becoming more complex. Delicious stuff! Aftertaste is a good mix of cofee roast, bitters, chalk, chocolate, bourbon, nuts, earthy and rum tones. Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, full bodied. Awesome stuff! Wonderfull! Thanks to trader X for this!

TheCaptMatey (206) - Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured a dark brown to black colour with a thin toffee head. Aroma is sweet chocolate/ mocha, nuts, and bourbon vanilla. Flavor is mocha giving way to bitter coffee and warming nutty bourbon finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth and somewhat astringent mouthfeel. Reminds me of a liquid chocolate covered pretzel.

22 oz Staff bottle also on draft at the Anniversary party from notes. Pours black in color with a medium sized fine beige head. The aroma has roasted malts, chocolate, great coffee character, some black walnut nutty character, wood, bourbon and vanilla. The flavor has much of the same with a super coffee component that shows nicely with the other flavors. Some tannin character from the wood shows. This is another solid version of an already great imperial stout.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle... Pours pitch-black with a short-lived, creamy, beige head. The bouquet is a gorgeous swirl of mocha, vanilla, graham and toasted coconut. Full-bodied and viscous with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is a sweet, boozy blend of espresso and black chocolate, tailed by a hot, sticky, alcoholic finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Pours jet black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of coffee, so much coffee, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Tastes is boozy, bourbon, oak, vanilla and bitter coffee. Nice but a bit over the top.
