3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour looked opaque, black, and imposing in the tulip glass. The head formed to a one finger thick at first, but dies down rapidly, and the beer looked quite still thereafter. The aroma was quite tame for a beer of this gravity and complex construction. I could detect a hint of vanilla, and some oak and coffee, but it was a rather mild smell. The taste was dominated by coffee, followed by some toffee and chocolate. The oak and vanilla were quite a bit more subdued than many other similarly aged beers. There was a faint hint of cherry in the finish. The body was much thinner than a typical stout, and the beer felt way less potent than it was. The aftertaste was a lingering vanilla note. It was an enjoyable beer, but I would have liked to seen more oak influences show up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Aroma is dark malt. No bourbon that I noticed. Appearance is black with little tan head. Taste is dark malt with some bourbon. Palate is dry and dark. Overall, a decent stout. It needs more bourbon, though.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Deep brown-ish color, a khaki head dissipates quickly to a foamy collar. Aroma is super buttery... Diacetyl overload, anyone? Mild toffee, hint of some sweet milk chocolates, I guess. Bourbon barrel? Uhh... Taste, unfortunately, does not get any better. Tons of buttery off-flavor with only minor hints of "stout" underneath... Touch of milky cocoa. Quite astringent in the finish, possibly the only indication of a barrel, here. No bourbon or woody flavors otherwise. A pretty poorly put together stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice stout. Dark cola-like pour with a rocky thick off-white head, that leaves good lacing. Nice roasted malts in the nose. Decent mouthfeel, smooth, not overly carbonated. Good stout flavor, roasted coffee, wood, and a bit of bourbon ... nicely done!

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Chocolate, toffee, and coffee beans on the nose. Little bit of toasted oak and roasted malt flavours. Very well balanced. Complex finish, coco and vanilla bean.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
