VsXsV (3869) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2012
Draught at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Opaque, black liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate, bourbon, wood, licorice, dark fruit, biscuit and some coffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of licorice, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice. Really reminds me of one of my homebrews.

Keg @ CPK. Deep brown with no head. The nose is huge bourbon, big woody sugary notes. Some vanilla. The taste is similarly outsized, plenty of big toasty coffee and chocolate notes. Plenty of bourbon and booze. The body’s full and thick, but drinks very well for 11%. Overall, really nice.

Draft at PP Carlsbad. Huge bourbon and vanilla nose.  Also prunes.  Flavor is tons of bourbon, vanilla, and oak.  Bourbon coats the tongue.  Awesome.

jredmond (7329) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at pizza port Carlsbad with Linh. Pitch black with light brown ring lacing, no head. Aroma is muted dark chocolate and light bourbon. Mouthfeel is smooth, full and creamy with notes of delicious sweet chocolate, oak, bourbon, maple and molasses. Reminiscent of older viscosity, which is always a good thing. Awesome.

CP&K Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Nice to catch up with this after missing it Sour & Bitter due to inebriation! Opaque black beer, short lived pale tan head. Smooth palate with mild fine carbonation that gives it a crispy edge. Classic barrel aged beer - smooth vanilla oak, luxuriant creamy dark malt, mild and well judged bourbon. A little unusual in as much as it’s delivered in a crispy palate. Dangerously drinkable - my half pint went down very easily.

Opaque black color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, cocoa, burnt wood, light oxidation, and alcohol. Taste of roasted malts, tobacco, dried fruits, espresso,vanilla, bourbon, and alcohol in the finish.

Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, vanilla, oak, bourbon, soy, liquorice, dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Flavor is again really nice and complex roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, soy sauce, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and some liquorice. The body is full with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a really nice Imperial Stout!

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Sour & Bitter Dinner, Copenhagen. Tar black body resides in my glass, capped by a small caramel-hued retention. Nose is heavy bourbon, soy, peanuts, wood, coffee and hints of licorice. Really nice stuff; I could sniff this all night! :-) Taste is harsh coffee and bourbon notes, vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt toast, hints of caramel and mocha. Very elegant, complex and super tasty! Smooth palate with mild carbonation carries this one right up there. A great bourbon BA brew for sure.
