2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of char, roast, burnt sugar, caramel, a little earth and vanilla. Flavor is char, chocolate, sweet caramel, burnt grains, and odd sort of sour note, light metal, earth and as it warms light fusel notes. Light body, oily entry, medium carbonation and a finish that is dry with a sort of charcoal feel on the palate. I didn’t really like this one as far as Imperial Stouts, but overall it is not too bad. Way too much char taste though, and I like a little char in my Stouts.

Brune très foncée avec des reflets rubis, un légère mousse noisette. Nez de chocolat, café, vanille. Amertume moyenne, sirupeuse. Bouche sur café, le bourbon et la vanille. Corps important, l’alcool se fait sentir. Bonne bière, côté stout pas tant prononcé.

Black with a nice solid tan head. Aroma of roast and chocolate, with a smokey note. Taste has lots of chocolate and vanilla, with dry roast and wood making an appearance once beer warms a bit. Palate dry and roasty, with a warming feeling.

well. lets take a gander at this mislabeled scum bucket .. . pours mild black .. . easy foam .. lots of tar, cooking chocolate, and mild burnt bourbon .. . very light mouth and has a tangy bite .. . not very good for a barrel aged beer .. . . Everyone’s a bad ass until you’re being chased by a bee.
Then all that shit goes out the window.

Drank in glass out of a bottle. Pours dArk brown with a thin head. Nice aroma - caramel notes from the bourbon barrels. Big flavor up front That dissipates quickly. Can taste the bourbon but not overwhelming or cloying. Nice beer.

Pitch black with a small, off-white head. The aroma is roasted with coffee, dark chocolate, and some vanilla. It has a full body with somewhat slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with notes of wood and whiskey.
