4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich black color with a trace of khaki foam. On the nose its got a nice dose of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and some berry sweetness peaking through. The palate is well balanced with a sweet molasses, roasted chocolate and just enough traces of bourbon, fresh raspberry and vanilla to really bring it all together. Nice Beer...

660ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Label put me off, but I’ll put my prejudices to the side. It’s a lovely vanilla aroma - a rich roast with toffee and treacle. So sweet, but pressing just the right hedonism buttons. Desperately sweet, but yummily so. Lots of sweet roasty vapours go up the nose. Treacly hedonism.

Bomber. Smells like a dark chocolate bar with raspberries and a hint of pepper. Black with a touch of red. Tastes like a raspberry choc bar. Very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Jeremy. Pours black in color with a medium sized thick tan head. The aroma has a great combination of roasted malts, dark bread, coffee, dark chocolate, fresh raspberries, caramel, honey with the expected barrel notes. The flavor has all the character of a big imperial stout; roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark caramel, a hint of coffee, and a splash of honey. This is enhanced withe oak, bourbon and a touch of vanilla from the barrel. Everything is topped off by the raspberry fruitiness. I thought everything worked together nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Bruce. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose roasted malt, raspberry ice-cream, tangy berry, toasted coconut, vanilla and oak. The taste is roasted malt, fresh raspberry, tangy fruit, toast, espresso,, tar, earth and a hint of soy sauce with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff indeed. I prefer this to their regular impy stout.
