bluejacket74 (1536) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2011
22 ounce bottle, I have no idea exactly how old this is but I do know I’ve had this bottle for about 4 months. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half dark tan head. Head retention is very good, and there’s a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is mostly roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate, along with some bourbon, oak, vanilla and dark fruit. The brew tastes like roasted/charred malt, caramel, bittersweet chocolate, oak, smoke and some bourbon. It’s a mostly bitter/roasty tasting stout with not much sweetness. The bourbon in both the aroma and flavor seems weak to me for a barrel aged beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and dry and is well carbonated. It’s also smooth and easy to drink. If you’re a fan of bitter roasty stouts, then you would probably like this beer. But if you’re expecting a lot of bourbon in this brew, you’ll probably be disappointed. Even though the bourbon isn’t strong in this brew, I still think this is a good imperial stout. I liked it.

OmegaX (1340) - Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Bottle into snifter. Poured almost gloopy with the color of burnt motor oil and a dark, frothy head. Nice look to it. Big notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, alcohol, oak, and greatness. Nice. Taste is quite full of oak and bitter cocoa. Some spicy vanilla in there with a nice dry quality to it, especially on the finish. Good stuff.

Bottle. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, wood and borubon aroma. Medium bittersweet roasted malt flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a creamy light brown head leaving laces. A little wood in the nose, but not distincly Bourbon barrels combined with sweet roast. Solid body, heavy roast, heavy licorice, spicy woody, dark fruits. Again the Bourbon doesn’t really shine through. Still a very solid Impy. Rather malt bitter finish. 170611
