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.

PhillyCraft (5761) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle shared at the best western RB/BA tasting in Vermont. Poured deep brown with light to medium coffee. Heavy roasty tobacco, fudge, and bourbon barrel dominate the nose. Flavor was similar with light notes of fruit mixed in with the wood and bourbon. Good stout but regular is far superior.

Small bottle. It is bout the same level as the original, unfortunately throwing it in the barrel didnít create magic.

A pour of I believe the last release at a tasting. Back with a brown head. Nose is lots of barrel, bourbon, vanilla. Taste is big bourbon barrel, dark chocolate. Smooth but fairly thin-medium mouthfeel.

ThirstyBird (2613) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
2009 rating from 2010 - Almost opaque black/brown with a tan head...some lacing. Sweet roast smell, some wood flavors. Taste is Smoky and ashy with lingering dry smoke on the aftertaste. Medium/full body with active carbonation. Not bad but unfortunately not as good as regular Stout Trooper.

Bottle - thanks blklab2007! Pours deep black/brown with a small brown creamy head that slowly dissipates with good lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, but not really localized to bourbon. Flavor is the same with some tobacco. Bourbon present but not overpowering at all. light to medium sweet and light to medium coffee bitter, with a warming finish that is actually a bit hotter than the actual ABV. This is a pretty good beer, and it is also my first Connecticut tick.

Bottle 1119/1400. The pour is dark. The aroma is thick with bourbon. The taste is full of bourbon and drinks thick. An overall awesome beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
