Tap at Underground. Black in colour, low sitting light brown cap. Some light spotty lace.Nose is malty, big chocolate. Taste has rich chocolate notes, some sweetness, coffee bean roastiness, whisky and vanilla. Finishes with cocoa and roast with slight dark fruits, lingering whiskey and some bitterness. Light wood notes. Body is medium to full, light mouthfeel. Was a big fan of the cherry version of this, but this isnt as good.

Any beer with sock monkeys on the label cant be all bad. Plenty of whiskey on the nose and the tongue without overwhelming chocolate and coffee malt of the beer itself. Good stuff.

Bottle. Inky viscous pour with a finely bubbled low brown head. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, bread, treacle, lots of bourbon but not harsh. The body has just enough malt to carry the bourbon load, and overall this remains rich and satisfying, although to be truly outstanding it coul e little more malt-heavy, a little chewier. But I loved it anyway, just to be clear.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 Bottle (330 ml). Traded by dresden, thanks! Black with a medium quickly disappearing beige/brown head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon/alcohol, dark chocolate and slight dark fruits. Taste is of bourbon, alcohol, roasted malt, dark chocolate and dark fruits. Slight roasted bitter finish. Warming alcohol. Low carbonation. Good BA RIS, but it could use a little more complexity. Drinkability is low due to heavy bourbon and high amount of roasted malt.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours pitch black with a creamy mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is heavy in dark chocolate and black liquorice, along with some light coffee, roasted barley and alcohol notes. Taste is rich and sweet with a lingering dry bitterness towards the finish. Full body, softer carbonation, and smooth on the palate. A really great imperial stout.

First off, awesome label and name. Pours a very dark black with a killer deep tan head that is evenly 1/2 inch thick and very dense. Aroma has a very strong whiskey nose, lots of coffee and roasted notes, mild chocolate and more whiskey at the end providing a some alcohol fumes. Flavor is fantasticly rich. There are a lot of strong whiskey (almost scotch-like at times from the rich malt) early with a strong chocolate and light coffee bitterness to cut the whiskey note. Brew has a slight oily feeling to it but a lot of alcohol bite from the whiskey. Overall a very, very tasty brew. One of the better barrel aged imps I have had the pleasure of tasting. I would love to have a few cases of this lying around for consumption.

pepsican (1445) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Local swap! Black pour with a small tan head. Huge bourbon/vanilla/chocolate nose. Boozy chocolates, vanilla, woody caramel, and a bit of butterscotch. Just hints at a salty/soy sauce/umami component, but not over powering. Just a bit thin, not as chewy as the bigger imperial stouts I have had. Solid effort.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Wow!! What surprise this was. Big thanks to my buddy Kyle for sending me this one as an extra. Super dark and oily. Boozy nose with bitter chocolate and hints of bourbon. Flavor has hints of bourbon and coffee grind. A delicious treat!

Black pour into snifter with this brown head. Candy, caramel, vanilla. Bit of a wine flavor. Fruity, some roasted malts. Good balance. Starting to appreciate barrel aged beers a little more. May have poured this too cold. More complexity as it warms. 081912

Inky black viscous pour with film of tan head. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, dates, other dark fruits. Taste is big. Big sweet, big bitter, notable warming alcohol. Complex, sweet, chocolate/cherry finish. Very full bodied and smooth, with gentle carbonation. Yum.
