Pitch dark w a strong alcohol content (11%). Strong burbon barrell taste - really a great winter bear that will go well with whisky (peaty type).

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, black color with a hint of brown. A little light can be seen through the full glass of beer. A small tan head that fades away to slight lacing. Mouthfeel is pretty thin for an imperial stout. This is one heck of a drinkable BBA stout...dangerously easy to down a few of these. At 11%ABV it will catch up with you. The bourbon is not very forward here, But a good beer for sure!

Pours opaque dark chocolate with a small tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate and a bit of oak. Pretty thick in body, but not sticky. Flavor is complex and delicious. Vanilla is in the forefront, but there are also nice roasted chocolate and coffee overtones. In the background are oak, alcohol, char and a bit of a hop bite. This is really my kind of beer.

Buena STOUT envejecida, con notas de bourbon, vainilla y chocolate. 11 grados bien enmascarados en un borrón ideal como postre.

shared bottle by a friend. poured a brown colour (not black at all) with a tan head. licorice, some sweet chocolate, malts, dates, tannic smell, plum, candy sugar, caramel, no oak or bourbon notice whatsoever.. only a strong boozy aftertaste. i have no idea if there was something wrong with our bottle... but this is nothing for a imperial stout!

Poured from 12oz bottle to a snifter. Pours a nice silky black with a thin coffee colored head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, oak, and mocha. Taste of all the same with a slight boozy finish, especially as it warms up. Has a nice sweetness that isnít overpowering at all and is a great beer to introduce people to barrel aged stouts.

Going from memory a few weeks ago. Really nice chocolate/ roasty/ licorice aroma and flavor. I remember it being really great.
