Pours black with tan head. Good lacing. Nose is bourbon, iodine, raisin and burnt malts. Taste starts out raisin and dark fruit and is quickly overpowered by bourbon and a sharp iodine aftertaste. Gets smoother further down the bottle.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2010
12.7oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of bourbon, oaky/woodiness, chocolate, vanilla, earthy, and some roast. Tastes of bourbon, vanilla, woody, dark chocolate, and earthy. Hot...medium to heavy alcohol burn in the finish (or is that just because Iíve been putting up with beer in Vegas for a week!).

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Black body with a dark dense small head, vanishes, leaves surprisingly little lacing. Good body, but nothing extraordinary for an imperial stout. Nose of bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate, sweet roasted malts. Taste of bourbon, alcohol, chocolate, oak, vanilla ... but just not great or intense. Itís not a Lost Abbey Angels Share. Itís not a Lost Abbey Serpent. Itís not a Bellís Expedition or a Victory Storm King at a fraction of the price. Too one dimensional. Too much bourbon, not enough malt or hops. And anything at that price and at 13+% has to give me a better reason to buy it and a better reason to drink it. I was actually disappointed.

6th June 2010. RBESG 10 Grand Tasting at the Brasserie 4:20 Warehouse. Big thanks to Alex for allowing us to take this bottle from his stock! Black beer, light brown head. Smooth dry palate. Sweet dark malt with a little spice. The bourbon is quite subtle but there is a lot of unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes dry and roasty.

Another one from this series I loved. Great whiskey smell and flavor. Lots of vanilla. Wonderful aroma and appearance. I loved them all a lot more than my fellow Ratebeerians.

fonefan (34232) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2010

Bottle 375ml.

Clear dark black color with a average, creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, coffee, wood, vanilla, moderate alcohol - bourbon. Flavor is light heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration, vanilla. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. [20100613]

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours jet black with big 4-finger dark brown head and great lacing, especially for a beer this big. Nose is dark malt, dark choc, oaky bourbon, coffee, some honey. Complex nose. Tastes rich, hot from the onset, with dark malt, heavy hops, darfk choc, coffee, oaky bourbon. The heat is more in this than the other versions Iíve had, much greater, and it takes away from the beer. Not bad, but not the best of the black holes (thatís what she said).

patrickfannon (1236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with James. Pours a dark obsidian amber with a light tan head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, toffee, liciorice, anise, chocolate, roast, and sweet, hoppy malt. Full bodied with a tight, sharp, boozy palate. Finishes strong with a heavy burn. Good stout. Unique.
