9 dec 2011, bottle. Amazing in every way! Smells and tastes like bourbon ages imp stout. Vanilla and oaky notes. Very sweet but dark chic stout is much bigger than in bourbon stouts. Lovely!

This one was a bitch to open. Pours black with a a solid darker brown head. Nose is intense malts sweet chocolate, booze, coffee. Flavor is a super bitter and boozy flavor with intense coffee and toasted flavors. Full body smooth thick feel. I enjoyed this one. Lots of flavor and not anything too over the top.

Bottle from Beace... Funky nose of some sweet honey notes with a roasted maltiness and coffee, chocolate.. Taste is more honey than I would like... Sweet with a roasted maltiness taste. Light coffee....Unique... Not bad, just different... Medium body.... No trace of the alcohol. Overall.. can think of many other IMPYís that I would rather have. Thanks Brad

On tap at Duckworths Ballantyne. Dark colored pour with a tan head on it. Smell is full of coffee and chocolate and a little bit of vanilla? Almost smells like a bourbon barrel beer. Sweet smooth taste that is very creamy and easy to drink. No 10.5% noticed here. A pretty good beer from NC - perhaps worth the large price tag on the bombers, but definitely worth the $3 draft price at Duckworths.

Pours dark blackish with thin tan head, aroma has notes of honey, dark fruit, toffee, some chocolate and coffee, hints of roast and bitter earth in there. Taste is some nice honey, floral notes from the honey, big notes of toffee, coffee, chocolate, hints of dark fruit and anise, finishing fairly sweet but also fairly dry. No sign of the alcohol, really tasty stuff.

Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured black with a light brown head. A big, dense, roast sour with hints of chocolate, coffee, mocha, molasses, chalky-toasted malts, ash, and some sweetness too. A little bit of an earthy bitterness too.

Bottle. Pours a dark chocolate color with a small head. Mucho alcohol in the nose but the coffee and chocolate is peeking behind. Great flavor that really has a nice tobacco note reminding me of a black cavendish pipe smoke mixed with chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is rich and the honey adds a nice finish without being cloying.
