Bottle from mikem409 to finish my local4local bif haul. Pours coffee like black with no head, a oil like slick on top. Nose of bouron and oak. Taste adds light black coffee roast. Body seems a tad thin but the ABV lifts.

2014 bottle. Thanks tony. Smells like Hershey syrup. Tastes like Hershey syrup. Just a touch of coffee and a touch of bourbon. Perfectly mixed together. Really fucking tasty.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Similar flavor to nose, roast finish. Good.

Fritz123 (1268) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle shared with Brian at home. Snifters. Pours a deep brown, nearly black with a small oily head. Aroma is dark chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter (slight), dark currants, some coffee. Taste is fairly the same with dark chocolate, coffee, slight peanut, and burnt caramel. Little lighter body than I was expecting. Well carbed. Finish is coffee bitterness and caramel. Solid.

BMMillsy (1655) - Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from trade. Pours pitch black with a small creamy brown head. Aroma of earthy coffee and sweet chocolate, some roasty, light vanilla an a hint of bourbon. Flavor is big chocolate and coffee, super smooth like a creamy milkshake. Smooth and creamy body, rich, with only a twinge of bourbon heat going down. Very impressed with this one. Mmmm.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/10/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, fudge, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, toasted oak, brown sugar, and oaky earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark bread, caramel, fudge, vanilla, toffee, toasted oak, bourbon, brown sugar, and oaky earthiness. Light amount of roast/oaky bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark bread, caramel, vanilla, toffee, toasted oak, bourbon, and brown sugar on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great malt/barrel balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent barrel aged imperial coffee stout. All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

JaBier (5160) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2015
2014 bottle brought back by a friend. Black pour with a medium light brown head. Nose consists of malt, coffee, slight bourbon and roast. Malty flavor with a nice vanilla character before coffee and bourbon take over. Chocolate and roasted malt finish. Tasty.

johnnnniee (2691) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2015
2014 vintage from BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity! Solid inky black with a minimal tan head. Huge milk and light dark chocolate bourbon and vanilla notes with a touch of roasted coffee. I swear I get some mint in the aroma as well. The flavor is rich thick and sweet fudge-y chocolate that slowly turns to a mocha then some wooden vanilla and a bit of alcohol flavor and burn Rich thick and sweet, I love this brew!

AWISLguy (1594) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike - cellared a month or so. Pours very dark brown with a brown head leaving nice spotty lacing. Aroma has luscious roasted coffee, chocolate syrup, dark chocolate and vanilla. Wow! That choco-coffee is tremendous! Taste is of sweet milk chocolate, nutty roast, some bakers chocolate and sweet vanilla with hints of lactose. Quite sweet, occasionally pushing cloying, but very tasty. Medium bodied and smooth, with a bit of alcohol. Finishes without a lot of length, and more sweet than bitter on the bitter-sweet scale, with some bourbon. Very enjoyable; somewhat thin for an "imperial" stout. Tough to beat taste and nose! 15.4

We argued about it, consensus is; this is a proper choice if you dig the whole bourbon barrel thing.
