3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Taphouse CPH.
Black with a dense espresso coloured head that rests down to a thin film.
Aroma has coca cola, lots of sweetness going on, bourbon notes and chocolate pudding.
Taste has dark chocolate, loads of bitterness, a bit hot alcohol, roasted, faint bourbon, slight sweetness.
Medium body, high carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Too much bitterness and carbonation in combination with being quite thin marks this down a few notches.

Having the 2014 batch. Black pour from 22oz bottle at home. Smokey Carmel and sweet taste. Not getting much whiskey. Rather underwhelming after thinking I was holding a gem for a year.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a lot of frothy head. Intense harsh whiskey flavor that overpowers everything. It smooths with some time to breath.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
What the hell?! Just like with Pinchy Jeek, it looks like I’m the first to buy a messed up bottle. This hot mess did not resemble an imperial stout (and I really like the base beer) or a halfway decent whiskey BA beer.
Aroma and flavor are nearly offensively astringent. Tastes and smells infected...more like a wine BA beer gone bad than a bourbon or whiskey BA stout. That distracts and ultimately completely covers up any roast or chocolate notes in this beer. So sad that I spent nearly $15 on this. It was crap. None of the 4 of us came close to finishing.

On tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey! Pours jet black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is bourbon oak and roasty chocolate. Flavor follows with also some earthy notes. Very bitter. Creamy mouthfeel. Really nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours black with huge root beer float type head. Goes downhill from there with roast acidic aroma with a touch of plastic. Taste moderately bitter roast malts with oak. Palate on the thin side. Didn’t get much bourbon or sweetness. Wouldn’t buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (2013 Bourbon Barrel Aged 6 months) poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours a dark brownish black with two fingers of frothy tan head. Head fades slowly and leaves nice lacing. Big bourbon/whiskey on the nose with vanilla, dark fruit, oak. On the taste, big bourbon/whiskey again along with dark chocolate, toffee, oak. Bourbon/whiskey notes pretty much dominate. Around a medium body, seems a bit thin for an imperial stout. Dry and warm boozy finish.
