Leighton (12668) - London, Greater London, - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London on the inaugural evening of Jack’s Farewell Tour - big thanks to Bruce! Pours black with a creamy brown head. The nose is slightly medicinal, lots of dark malts, some burnt toast, general charred malts. Medium sweet flavor, lots of booze-soaked dark fruits, sugary dark chocolate, bitter earth and baking cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lots of charred dark malts, strong roast, booze, dark fruits, raisins. Nice beer but certainly heavy.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rando7 (763) - Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2014
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.

GenDV138 (2470) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2014
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.

Theydon_Bois (10647) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Tap at Capones Annual Black Friday event, Norristown PA, 29/11/13. Mid black with a good sized tan head that retains well, lacing ensues. Bourbon evident on the nose, earthy cocoa, sweet toffee fudge, dark fruit tang, brown sugar. Taste comprises sweet dark toffee fudge, chocolate, bourbon infused wood, earthy, brown sugar, molasses. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet bourbon coated finale. Decent impy, the alcohol is well integrated and its a fairly easy drinking affair.

Pours old motor oil black with no head. Aroma of chocolate, coconut, roasted malt,and bourbon. Sweet flavor with coconut, vanilla, and chocolate, balanced out with roasted malt and a hint of bourbon. Delicious!

Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours black with a thick tan head. The nose is roast, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, earth, bourbon and toast. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, earth, toast, vanilla, toasted coconut, ash, dull burnt notes, bourbon and decent bitterness with a dry finish. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff all in all.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Deep brown pour with a small head. The aroma’s of mild chocolate, cinnamon spice. Toast. Earthy charred wood. The taste is chocolate-covered berry. Boozy wood. Some nutmeg and vanilla. Earthy roast. Full body, smooth. Overall, a pretty nice imperial stout. Good.
