355mL bottle, pours jet black with a small brown head. Nose brings out rich wood, bourbon barrels, and some roasted malt in back - very complex. Flavour is exceptionally well-balanced, with many different elements working in good harmony - with moderate bourbon barrels of high quality, a little wood, some roasted malt and a little caramel. Now this is how you do a bourbon barrel imperial stout. Extremely highly drinkable and smooth on the palate. Wonderful stuff.

Unknown canadian bottle size. Balck pour, really nice sweet and cocoa interplay with the caramel and bourbon and the stout base.

jercraigs (9877) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
2014-03-05. Black body, modest tan head fades a bit. 3+ Aroma is alcoholic, but not overly so, bourbon? Mild mocha roast notes grow as it warms. Flavour is relatively bitter, with a good amount of mocha and roasty bitterness, moderate alcohol character throughout, bourbon/whiskey notes come out in the finish and linger in the aftertaste. The barrel is quite present but not over the top. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate has lower carbonation that it deserves. 3+ Mild alcohol tingle in the mouth lingers, but the alcohol is surprisingly restrained otherwise. Good, I don’t love the barrel influence and it covers up some lovely chocolate and mocha undertones but I suspect that the base stout might be less complex than it is with the barrel. Decent. Bottle via trade with tbadiuk, cellared several months.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
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.

b3shine (8195) - Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a very slightly translucent dull black with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and dark chocolate with notes of bitter oak and discernible Wild Turkey. Some roast too. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and bitter with some warm booziness. Good, not great; could use more balance.

Erzengel (7928) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2015
Smooth and intense viscous beginning. Lots of wood, nice intense whisky aroma. The mainpart is thick, nice roasted malt, moderate bitterness. Intense and great whisky aroma with the great and deep sticky malty body. The aftertaste is long, intense dark, dried plums in whisky with lots of wood. Absolutely great. Hints of bitterness, round!
