Draught. Pours an amost black color with very little head on it. Nose is strong, with a whiff of alcohol and a smell like it’s been aged. Tastes fairly smooth, with a kick of bourbon. Some chocolate in there, too. Really interesting.

Rating #1500 -- Tried this on tap at Gail’s Hops and Grapes in Hickory - rating is bottle from the tap room. Oily black pour with a finger khaki head. Aroma is big sweet chocolate, caramel, boozy, roasted malt. Tastes are sweet and roasty malt, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, ashy wood, honey, light bourbon. Dries out nicely in the finish. Just a touch warm. Very well done.

2010 bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla oak, bourbon soaked dark fruits, roasted malt, dark roast coffee, fudgey chocolate notes and some honey nose. Flavor follows the nose with lots of bourbon, yet it is still quite balanced, I get roasted malt, fudgey chocolate and honey notes, vanilla, oak, coffee and bourbon soaked dark fruits. The body is full with a nice creamy mouth feel. Overall a great Imperial Stout! Thanks to Peter for sharing!

Bomber to oversized snifter (2011 vintage; thanks jmborggren). Looks good; pitch black with deep tan lacing. Smells good too; sweet malt, molasses, coffee, and bourbon. Tastes like it smells with some honey flavor present. Good on the palate too. An excellent example of the style!

IIRC brewed with honey. This brewery seems to like honey and it gives thier stouts some dryness. This one is pretty tasty with a nice bit of oak.

Pours thick black in color with creamy cocoa head. The aroma brings roasted chocolate cake with vanilla bourbon flavors, so awesome. The flavors brings rich roasted chocolate cake and vanilla bourbon as well. The body is thick, just the right thickness without being overpowering.

Pour pitch black, with a small light mocca-brown head. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon soaked dark fruits, plenty of vanilla, (plenty of it indeed) caramel, chocolate fudge, bourbon goodies, slight honey on the nose. - sick balance!!
The taste is pretty sweet up front, going in to a long and semi-dry bitterness. Really Nice indeed. Medium bodied, with a semi-flat carbonation. Big thanks to Dj. Scotty for suggesting and sending me this sob.
