This is one of the greatest beers ever. Pours like motor oil with a two finger brown/black head, smells of a shit ton of bourbon with a lot of vanilla and chocolate. Taste a lot like bourbon with some vanilla and coffee hints along with with it, there is some alcohol burn along with it.

Bottle (375 ml). Labeled "Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout". From Reynolds314, thanks Matt! Dark brown (almost black) with a medium fully lasting brown head and some lacing. Aroma is rich with chocolate, caramel, bourbon, coffee, vanilla, marshmallow and fruity notes. Taste is even more complex with moderate sweetness, bourbon, toffee/caramel, chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, coffee, fruity notes and a warming finish. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffly/creamy mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very complex and tasty. Drinkable for the style (the low abv help). Amazingly rich. Superb!

12oz. bottle labeled New England Bourbon Aged Imperial Stout. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, bourbon, creme egg, and mochachino. Pours deep brown black with a swirly thick brown head. The head lingers in a beautiful way. Taste is damn near perfect. Milk chocolate, toffee, bourbon, roast coffee, dark fruits, and brown sugar. Everything is balanced with a great sweet chocolate candy taste balancing out a roasted stout. I am very impressed with this one and will be seeking it out again.

Damico (2352) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours dark unclear, blackish with a small beige ring head. The aroma brings toffee malts and a tad of smoke. The flavor brings rich, dark chocolate roasted malt flavor with some brown sugar from the barrels blended so well. There is no alcohol bite and it is a medium to thicker body, so satiating.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, a good amount chocolate, a little coffee and a little dark fruit, and some dough. Flavor the same. Smooth to thick texture. A really good beer.

Really nice beer here it reminds me of a chocolate covered caramel. Really rich and flavorful with tons of caramel and some nice toastyness. I wouldnt say its roasty or has much dark fruit flavor but its very much a sweet flavorful treat. Great stuff.

This one poured a darker brown color with a beiege head. Not sure why this has such low rating for a BA Impy. It was one of the msot well rounded ones i;ve had in a while. Anyways, aroma was of fudge, smoke, and bourbon. Flavor was a tad on the sweet side, but not diabetic levels by any means, fudge and smoke in the forfront, followed by a big bourbony oaky dark fruit finish. Very nice.
