750 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Aroma of rich bourbon notes, vanilla, roastiness and earthiness. Rich roasted flavour with bourbon sweetness, wood, vanilla and biscuit. Full bodied. Oily mouthfeel. Sweet finish with wooden notes. Great.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. A very dark black beer with a beige head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Wood, vanilla, bourbon, cocoa powder and hints of roasted coffee in aroma. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Roasted malts and coffee in taste. There’s that bourbon vanilla as well in taste, but not in a agrressive way. Nice and balanced brew.

Bel équilibre... Finale de toffee et mélasse avec une bonne dose de grains grillés. Tout simplement excellente!

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
750 mL bottle courtesy of Raphael, served in a stem glass next to the base. Pours black with a moderate light brown head that remains and leaves a large amount of fine lace. The nose has huge bourbon, oak, molasses, vanilla and chocolate, along with subtle herbal hops. The flavour is somewhat sweet with chocolate, molasses, espresso and subtle tobacco. Hints of earth and herbs come through as well. The finish is long and malty, with molasses, bourbon and vanilla. On the palate it is full in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a great bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout. Complex and well put together. Beautiful. 2014-06-19

Apparence: D’une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d’une bonne mousse couleur chocolat d’une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à voir. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de chêne accompagnées de malt torréfié. Saveurs: Quel beau mariage! Le tout commence avec un liquide suave qui vient envelopper ma bouche. Pour commencer, il y a le malt torréfié qui me rappelle l’espresso. Ensuite, c’est le bourbon qui fait son apparition. La finale a une légère touche d’amertume. Chaque des saveurs est judicieusement balancées. Pratiquement aucune effervescence. Fiche technique : Style: Impérial Stout Format: 750 ml Taux d’alcool : 9%

Hammy78 (771) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
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 (597) - 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.

ineedbeer (887) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 12, 2014
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.
