Tap at Monks alehouse.. Pour is jet black with a nice brown head. Smell is roasted malts, slight citrus, some chocolate. A bit sweet. Taste is excellently balanced.. a complex malt blend.. roasted.. and a nice hoppy compliment. Very well executed. Coffee on the finish. Overall really enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of roasted malts and a slight hint of vinilla. Pours a rich black with a mostly lasting, dark tan head and sticky lacing. The taste is bitter. Roasted malts, oak, a little alcohal, and a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Full bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable imperial stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted blind. Deep black with a big foamy tan head. Sour dark malt and light baking spice. A bit of sharp heat and astringency. Taste is sour and odd—dark and roasty, with more baking spice, sour tartness, and a bit of dark chocolate/coffee on the finish. Pretty thin and watery…just odd tasting.

Pours deep dark black with a small fluffy dark tan head. Aroma is roast, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet with some tartness from the roast. Full bodied with a smooth and creamy texture, some warming on the finish however the alcohol is well hidden.

Creamy dark chocolate pour. Bottle from letspour. Super thick. Cocoa and nutty taste. Coffee notes. Good but a choker. Glad I'm splitting it

Not a huge bourbon fan, but I do like this beer! Nice dark pour with a dark tan head. Aroma up front was straight bourbon. After it warmed a bit you get the roasted aromas as well. The taste has that chocolatey bitterness and roasty flavor, but it still has that sweetness and warmth from the bourbon.
