A play on Josh’s name, this Russian imperial stout is aged in four different types of bourbon barrels (Old Fitzgerald, Old Forester, Elijah Craig, and Evan Williams), then blended for the resulting thick and dark brew. If you had a chance to taste Alderaan, this is the aged version.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 I don?t get much aroma but the flavor is huge. Chocolate, cherries and bourbon. It?s like dessert in a glass. Becomes a little bitter as it warms. I preferred it on the cool side. I?ve never had anything like it. Outstanding!

mcberko (10577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and alcohol. Flavour is complex as hell, with smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and more smoky whiskey. This is so well done. Perfect amount of heat, smoke and whiskey. Phenomenal.

Ferris (8958) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle - Dark boozy bourbon barrel notes and dark chocolate. Jet brown with a light brown head. Nice bourbon sweetness, toffee and molasses with big roasty sweet notes. Much better balanced than the nose.

Bomber from binny’s. Very thick, motor oil consistency. Dark brown, actually black with essentially no head. The aroma is straight whisky with some oak and sugar. First sip is strong, not an alcohol heat, more of the oaky liquor flavor of a bourbon. If you like bourbon, you’ll love this. I like bourbon... But I could use a little more spice or chocolate or something. As is heating up in my hand, the baker’s chocolate intensifies. Which kicks this up to worth the cost (at least).

AdamChandler (3920) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2015
pitch black oily and a very dark color espresso crema head. Sweet aroma like the others I’ve had here. Herbal, whiskey but overall a very light aroma. A lot of booze in this one. Vanilla, with candy corn, caramel and cocoa. Coats the tongue. Leaves a lasting bitterness with the chocolate. Despite the intensity, there’s enough creaminess to make this a very good beer. Needs to age I think. Very intense.
