Bottle. Opaque pour, dark khaki head that is about two fingers and dies down quickly. Nose is very sweet, bourbon, coffee malt, vanilla. Smells just awesome. A bit of chocolate. It’s actually quite light on the palette, very soft, not really bitter at all. It’s almost like boozy chocolate milk.

SuperTiti33 (342) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Noire. Beau collet avec une mousse teinté de brun. Riche. Sucré. Chocolat à fond. Bourbon subtile mais présent. Fine amertume, surtout provenant des malt torréfié. Vanillé. Caramel. Nougat. Fine chaleur d'alcool. Onctueuse. Drôlement facile à boire pour son pourcentage et son style. J'aime beaucoup.

Aroma has moderately strong dark chocolate notes with some lighter roast and coffee character. Light oak and medium light bourbon notes. Faint vanilla. Medium light plum and prune with faint licorice. Pours dark brown to black with some lighter dark brown highlights on the edges. Moderate sized, fairly thick mocha head with average retention that really lingers on the edges. Medium light lacing with medium long legs. Flavor has a medium light roast character with moderate chocolate notes. Light sweetness with medium light vanilla and bourbon and light oak. Some light fruitiness that balances nicely with faint ash and tobacco. Medium light bitterness and light alcohol spice. Fruit notes are plum and prune. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and slightly creamy with medium carbonation. Low astringency and light to medium light alcohol warmth. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer. A bit of residual sweetness to balance out the roast and alcohol spice. Nice chocolate, bourbon and vanilla notes. Nice mouthfeel and not too big of a beer.

mcberko (5360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from Marheb (thanks a lot, Martin), pours black with a medium tan head. Nose is very milky, with lactose, bourbon, vanilla and some sweetness. Flavour is similar, with bourbon, vanilla, lactose, and sweet cocoa. Full-bodied, with light bourbon accentuating the mouthfeel. Very full and decadent. Great stuff.

cargo150 (420) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Couleur noir avec un col beige. Nez de café de malt grillé et de bourbon. En bouche le bourbon est très intense s’accordant bien au café,malt grillé et chocolat. Pas mon imperial stout préférée mais se bois bien!

Nez de jument composé de grains de café torréfier a l’amertume de houblon de cèdres trempée dans du saumons d’élevage nordique du pacifique est. Je respecte tout les gens ici qui arrive a décrire une bière avec tout les ingredients un par un... moi c’est pas mon cas... PAR CONTRE, pour le commun des mortelles, très bonne bière moins forte que la wee heavy de microbrasserie le castor ce qui la rends un peu plus interessante pour moi personnellement. Je suis un amateur de bière très forte mais la corriveau descends mieux. Bref a essayer ! Merci a tous de me suivre :)
