Draft at Max’s, Baltimore. Deep opaque black with some brownish edges. Rich and sweet, the coffee and the bourbon play off of each other quite well. Thick and full bodied. Semi-mild carbonation, but the bitter chocolate and hops more than make up for it. Well done.

From tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is vanilla and roasted dark malt. Sweet and bourbon flavoured. Light overripe fruity and vanilla flavoured. Dry and smooth coffee and chocolate malt. Smooth and vanilla fruity finish.

Cask. Blackish beer with a tan head. Bourbon aroma. Bourbon and caramel flavor with light vanilla. Medium bodied. Bourbon and light stone fruit lingers with caramel and light vanilla. The bartender was sure this was the Imperial Stout and not the Cap Stout, so it could be a different beer...

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draught at the brewery during RBSG09. Black with a tan head. The aroma is just lots of sweet bourbon, with a hint of coffee coming through. Lots of bourbon in the flavor as well, but not much alcohol. Coffee, wood, and caramel show as well. On the lighter side for a stout this big, and it works well. The flavor on this was pretty simple, but nice. Much better than the regular version, which I really don’t care for at all, with its harshly vegetal coffee notes.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
On tap at Lagunitas during the 2009 RBSG visit there. Served from a firkin, dark brown, very little carbonation, some coffee flavor with bourbon notes.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
RBSG on cask at the brewery. Dark ruby brown color. Mostly still with a smattering of tan air bubbles. Big brownie aroma and smooth vanilla from the bourbon with some oakiness and subdued coffee. Chocolate cakey flavor with a nice medium bourbon influence. Light, moussey, airy body makes this beer hugely drinkable for a barrel imp stout.

nimbleprop (5196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Sampled at Max’s American Beer Fest. I was very excited to try this. Pours a nearly opaque black, slightly watery, with a ringing beige head. Aroma is very mild, vanilla, coffee, nuts and not a whole lot else. Flavor is a little better, slightly peppery, slightly boozy, some light wood, coffee grounds. Full bodied with a bitter finish. A little bit of a letdown. Frankly, I think the barrel aging eliminated some of the cappucino flavors.

bassbuckeye (81) - Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2008
On Tap at brews in Columbus Ohio... Had it after dinner and it was nice. Dark poor with copper head. Dark chocolate and roast smell with intense coffee arome. Taste coffee and cream not bad but a little to intense on the cappacino flavor.

baraciisch (2009) - California, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Deep black in color…. Like chewing on coffee beans and drinking a stout if you like that kind of thing…. Decent aroma…. Alcohol content of 8.3% is well hidden over the strong coffee flavor… Not my favorite coffee stout….
