Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is wood, chocolate and some dark fruit. Flavor is the same with a long semi-dry finish. Very nice.

500mL bottle, no date, and no idea how/when the hell I got this beer. Hopefully I donít get mad at Mikkeller for this beer, but at least I canít get mad at him for overpricing it, since I donít , know what I paid for it. Clear dark brown pour--black in the glass--with a two finger dark tan head. Charred oak barrels and bourbon (only lightly sweet, not like Angelís Share [I realize itís just of 1/2 strength of AS]) up front, but not terribly strong, with a fair amount of chocolate and caramel malts, roasted grain behind. Iím also getting some spearmint from somewhere. Flavor follows, stronger spearmint and ashy roast. Iím not getting as much bourbon in the flavor, however. The finish is semi-dry, burnt and ashy with bitterness peaking at a 3-4. Medium body with the oatmeal lending some lovely smoothness, light carbonation. The spearmint and ashy burnt roast keep me far from loving this beer. Meh, not very enjoyable, and Iím still sure I overpaid for it.

Pours a super dark color with a dark brown head. Sharing this one with the roommate. Smells of coffee and chocolate! Bourbon is not too present I feel. I like a little more bourbon in my barrel aged beers. Nice coffee flavors however. Hoping my red wings can pull out a victory tonight. This beer should power them forward.

Pours black as night. A big rich well coated palate. Aroma full of roast a hint of vanilla sweetness and a touch of lightly bitter coffee. Flavor is fantastic. Not to much barreling, just a subtle sweet finish to a great base beer.

Sampled on 1/28/2012. This Imperial Stout pours an eclipse black color from a 500ml bottle. Medium sized tan foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, oak and bourbon. A medium to full bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are chocolate, coffee and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Hints of wood and oak. The bourbon flavors are somewhat subdued, but intensify as the beer warms. Nice sipping beer. Hint of bourbon, oak and wood at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

reggiedunlop (3214) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Pours black with a huge dark mocha head...beautiful retention and lacing! Aroma has soft bourbon and oaky notes with hints of dark fruit and coffee...a bit of dark chocolate...a bit too subdued and faint though. Flavor has dark chocolate and mild coffee with just a hint of bourbon and oak arriving late. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a chocolatey/oaky finish that has faint coffee.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2011
500ml bottle: pours an oily opaque with a small creamy beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel and coffee nose with some piny hop notes and a touch of bourbon oak. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel sweetness with some resiny bitter hop balance along with plenty of roasty coffee and some mild bourbon toward the finish. Could use a little more bourbon and complexity, but still a flavorful brew.
