thornecb (4546) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours black into a tulip. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving scant trailing sheets. Chocolate and oak aromas. Dry with sweet chocolate and caramel upfront turning thin in the hot oak and bourbon burn finish.

mcberko (7248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma is quite oxidized, with some tart vinous notes and some cocoa. Flavour is thankfully quite a bit better, with notes of cocoa, moderate bourbon notes, and a cold cup of black coffee. There’s almost a hint of chilli pepper in there too. Definitely on the down slope in terms of age - I wish I had drank this fresher. A big step down from the regular Beer Geek Breakfast - not as smooth, nor as full-bodied. Certainly tastes better than it smells, but it’s not the most elegant beer at this stage. Still, quite good.

Foffern (1304) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle shared with (and great courtesy of) the Bergen tasting crew. Pours a black colour with a small light beige head. Powerful aroma of liqueur, bourbon, spices, coffee, oak, roasted malt and hint of white sage. Nice. The flavour has more roasted malt and bourbon and nice coffee touch. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A great and complex beer with a nice touch of bourbon.

Inbreak (2434) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 May 2011, 0,5l bottle (batch #463) sampled @ first ever BBGTC tasting:
Fyldig sødmerik lukt med preg av mørk malt, humle, bourbon, vanilje, kaffi, mørk sjokolade, mørk frukt, litt soyasaus. Fyldig sødmerik litt syrlig smak med preg av mørk malt, humle, bourbon, vanilje, kaffi, sjokolade, mørk frukt, krydder. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Veldig god.

Pyrmir (3560) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Lots of bourbon in the nose, kind of acidic notes. Taste full: loads of bourbon, dark sugar, coffee, chocolate

Sammy (8954) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
A bourbon nose, but understated Bourbon in the taste. Roast, an interesting roast, chocolate, engine oil. Smooth, above average mouthfeel. Well integrated. Gelatin thickness.

rarbring (1556) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2012
Aroma: The smell is fudge with nuts and vanilla, almond, but also some saw dust and alcohol.
Appearance: The beer is black, with a brown rather modest head, leaving little lacing. But good curtains.
Taste: The beer is sweet, dried fruits, figs and dates, some wood and bourbon character is noted, as well as a licorice nuance.
Palate: Medium carbonation, warm, oily and complex body.
Overall: A bit sweet, but a very lovely dessert beer (not really breakfast I dare say).
Note: Bottle - Tasted at a beer sampling at De Klomp, Linköping, Sweden. Reviewed 2010-09-04.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
March 9, 2012 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. 500ml bottle c/o ("I am NOT dripping!"). Nearly opaque brown-black with a smallish creamy light brown head. Aroma - some sweet bourbon and dry oak in there, but thankfully it’s mostly a great imperial stout: dry, deep coffee/chocolate roast, alcohol, quite herbal, a bit lactic, not sweet or fruity at all (8+). Taste follows, terrific balance, it’s creamy and strong but not boozy - nutshell and tons of coffee, enough to shove the damned bourbon way into the background. Slightly thick and definitely creamy and frothy mouthfeel, lively but not sharply so, finishes deeply roasty with appropriate alcohol and bitterness - a fine example of how to do a restrained bourbon finish on a beer. Excellent stuff, although I prefer the "regular" version.

Chocolate mint aroma. Sweet nose, mint chocolate flavor yields to a coffee finish.

Steve_0 (2882) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle at Dan’s, pour courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Light chlorine, peat, smoke, pee water, light cocoa, and nail polish in the aroma. Taste is very peaty, bourbon, roast, espresso, mint chocolate chip, smoke, and dark chocolate. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Somewhat offensive, but still drinkable. Not really my thing.
