500 ml bottle into snifter. Pours opaque black color with a nice 2 finger very dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap that lasts. Some thick lacing is left on the glass as well. Aromas of huge bourbon notes with dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, wood, and a bit of vanilla. Good strong aromas here, decent balance, but a little heavy on the bourbon. Taste of huge notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel on the front; with some bourbon and vanilla in the back. Finishes with a fair amount of bitterness that lingers for a bit with coffee and roasted flavor. Outstanding balance of flavors, very smooth drinking for the alcohol level as well. Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. Fairly creamy feeling as well. No alcohol noticed in the taste and a very slight warming on the finish. Overall an outstanding imperial stout. The nose was really strong on the bourbon, but the taste was great the bourbon sitting in the background.

50cl bottle pours an oily, opaque black with a thin, creamy tan head. Boozy aroma, whiskey, wood, brown sugar. Flavors of chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, smoke, toasted break. Full bodied, boozy, smokey finish.

Pours dark black with tan head, aroma has notes of roast, chocolate, some coffee, nuts, slight vanilla. Taste is nice with notes of roast and toffee, with some chocolate and coffee, finishing roasty, bitter and slightly sweet. Nice brew, but no real bourbon influences in the beer.

Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours completely black with a fine, creamy, light-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is roasted, vanilla, bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate. Luscious really. Light carbonation, nice fat and creamy palate. Flavour is very nice, good vanilla sweetness, roasted maltiness, coffee, softness and elegance. Very nice use of bourbon barrels.

Ughsmash (7145) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2011
500mL bottle. Poured medium-deep brown with a very tall, very well-retained dense tan head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up toasted coffee and nutty malts, with a little vanilla accenting.. fairly airy, but not unreasonably so for 7.5%. The flavor found the same coffee and vanilla at the core, with subtle, yet complementary bourbon laced throughout.. back to coffee with a lightly metallic bourbon on the finish.. not terribly complex, but solidly constructed. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. toasty.. I could drink a whole lot of this.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a black body with a coffee tan head. Malty body with coffee roastyness, feels less bright then the previous version. Malty chocolate, tobacco, lighter oak tones. Roast y with some ash like presence and a hint of vanilla in the finish. Good, but i prefer the stock version.

Wow! A delicious stout! Aroma was perfect. A strong blend of coffee, oak, bourbon and roasted chocolate malt. Pour was perfect as well. Deep dark black with a two finger tan head and a huge sediment pile on the bottom of the glass (nice!). Taste was a little weaker than the aroma but still great. Chocolate and coffee provide the backbone and is very full and strong. After the swallow oak and bourbon come up through the sinuses and coat the back of the tongue. Nice carbonation. Great beer!

Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee maybe a hint of bourbon. Chocolate and caramel roast stout. Good stout.

Aroma is a little bit like pie crust, but also a bit soapy, some vanilla, a bit of roast. It’s very dark, with a tall head that leaves spotty lace. Taste is a bit watery for me, coffee, roast, graham cracker, pretty bitter coffee finish. Palate is pretty thin for me, but not terrible. Overall, it’s pretty okay, but I taste no bourbon, which seems to be the point of the beer. Shared with tarheels86.

500mL courtesy of biggirlpanties. The pour is a near black with a large, dense, sheen, deep brown mocha head. Very nice retention and big webby and sheety lace. Aroma is really not doing it for me: floral, chemical, pool cleaner, lemon, sweet lemon drops. Nothing that reminds me of coffee, roast, stout, bourbon, oak, even just beer. Could be a box of old lemon drops. Taste is oily and soapy/watery dichotomy. Light olive, watery roast. Thinner palate: watery and then oily switching back and forth. Somehow inferior to Beer Geek Breakfast.
