Draft at Madtree. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized creamy khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, a nice amount of bourbon without being overpowering, vanilla, coffee, wood, some earthy hops with a splash of caramel. This is one of my favorite local beers; definitely worth trying if you get the chance.

Draft: Pours a dark brown, like chocolate, with a tan head. Aromas are what you’d expect... chocolate, bourbon, roasted grains, Vanilla. Taste is nice and roasty, with some creaminess coming through, vanilla and oak. Perfect example of a barrel aged imperial stout. I can think of few beers better on a snowy winter day while sitting inside a warm house looking out the window.

Tmoney99 (10085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Tap. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly diminished with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate and woodalcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Draft pour. Pours a darker ruby to brown with a beige head. Aroma has raisin, nuts, oats. Taste very nutty with a lot of barrel character. Nice barrel aged stout.

10oz on tap at the brewery, for $8. Black color. Good thin light brown head. Nice, thick sheet of lace. Awesome big vanilla, dark chocolate, rich chocolate cake, decadent type brownie-like nose. Big body. Smooth, lighter, more crisp carbonation. Moderately dry in the finish. Moderate bitter taste, some sweet, hint of tartness. Maybe not as chewy as I’d prefer, kind of a softer, stronger level of carbonation than typical for the style. Nice huge roast malt in the flavor profile, moderate roasted coffee flavors. Big earthy hop of the base is still noticeable here, but a little smoothed out after the barrel-aging. Light bit of alcohol warmth. Satisfying barrel-aged hoppy imperial stout to sip on.. Great, bigger whiskey barrel character to it.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark brown/black. Nose of bourbon and vanilla. Taste smooth vanilla, chocolate, and some fruit. Nice bitter finish. The bourbon definitely not overpowering, and was a very noce treatment to this beer.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a finger of tan head that eventually settles into a film and leaves spots. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, cream, roast, candied nuts, and earth. Flavor of earth, dark chocolate, brown sugar, oak, vanilla, citrus peel, and roast. The nose is sweeter and the flavor is more bitter. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Some warming bourbon throughout. Stunning improvement on the base beer.

b3shine (4436) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Draft to snifter at MadTree. Looks good; a dull dark cola with tan head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, roast, and bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

Tap. Pours black with solid tan head. Big toffee and vanilla aroma. Taste is nice roasted marshmallows and oak booze.
